What are your Havanese's favourite toys?

Hey everyone

I don't have my puppy yet but I'm making a list of everything I want to get for him/her!

Here's what I have so far:
Kong Puppy Teething Stick
Kong Puppy
Kong Puppy Goodie Bone
Kong Wubba

Any other tried and true toys that your Havanese can't get enough of?

Plastic water bottles are popular. Loki likes squeaky or crinkly toys. The squeaky ones have to be easy to squeak because he doesn't use his teeth but pushes on the toy with his nose. It is too funny. He does love lamb chop. He pokes her in the stomach with his nose and she squeaks.

Mine has a love for furry toys, AKC squirrel and raccoon are his favorites. He has a baby's teething toy from his puppyhood that he chews on after every meal.
He does not like balls or rubber squeaky toys for some reason.

At 9 mos. old Skye likes 'em all. Balls, squeaky toys, ropes, fuzzy and furry toys. I would say his absolute favorite is a bully stick. He started with them at 11 weeks old and chews on his every day.

As a tiny puppy mine loved these little guys.

They are small and easy to pick up, and they do squeak but they arenít too hard to squeak or annoyingly loud. They are Zippy Paws brand, and there are all different themes where the smaller pieces stuff into the bigger one. It completely wore my puppy out trying to get the penguins out of the igloo.

He likes all of them but the penguins and strawberry waffles are his favorites. We play fetch with them almost every day. They do wear out but they arenít poor quality. We take them outside and they get chewed so I like that they are pretty inexpensive. I think we are on our 3rd igloo.

He was terrified of balls as a puppy. Ran and hid! I found miniature tennis balls (they arenít real they just look and feel like them but are safe for dogs) and that helped warm him up but he still prefers the little soft toys.

I think the longer toys, like a rope (or water bottle are helpful to redirecting nipping during playtime when the puppy is teething - thereís just more surface area so i felt like it helped me communicate what was okay and what wasnít. Mine loves to tug!

They are the “Burrow” Zippy Paws.

I have found them on Amazon, Home Goods/TJ Maxx, and other random places but I’ve never paid more than $10, even though the manufacturer’s website lists them higher.

Zumba loved the squirrels inside the plush tree trunk. I canít find the specific one she has, but there are others like it. She would play with those squirrels for hours. Now, that sheís older, the squirrels donít get as much attention, though she is often playing with the plush cup that came with the donuts inside (also a Zippy Paw product). The donuts have always been a source of entertainment for her, too.

She has always loved the flirt pole, too. Though you have to be careful how you use it so as not to hurt your puppy. The lure is kept on the ground and moved in circles.

Any toy that belongs to the cat. I bought her a toy last week and to make sure that she would be interested in it, I put it with the cat things. Sure enough, she came in, grabbed it, and took off with it. Spent quite a bit of time with it, too. I thought it was hilarious. Oh, but on that note, her most favorite toy for a few months now is a toy that kind of reminds me of being a cat toy. It has a ball with a bell in it on one side, and then has a big furry tail attached on the other side. I wish I could find a different one that is similar to that. Zumba absolutely loves that toy!

Ditto! Plastic Water Bottles are the Best. Putting macaroni noodles in them for noise is a big winner.

At 18 months Patti still loves plastic bottles but she destroys them quickly and we have remove the cap because she chews it off. Her favorite toy at this age is playing fetch with a ball, tug of war and chewing on Antlers. She carries toys around and brings one to us when we come home, but doesn't spend a lot of time playing with them at his age. It's like picking up after a 2 year old. I find toys all over the house.
