Best Puppy Toys

Hi everyone,

I was wondering if anyone had recommendations on puppy toys, whether it be types of toys or specific toys. My boys (7 & 8) want to go shopping for toys on Saturday (my youngest requested this, since it's his birthday!).

There are so many teething toys, etc out there that my head is spinning! I want to get safe and fun toys without wasting a bunch of money on something that looks great but turns out to be useless, or doesn't last.

Any suggestions would be appreciated!!!

Thanks!
Cathryn

Chester has one Kong toy which has a hole through it so you can put peanut butter or something in it and he can try to lick it out. And he has a Nylabone Durachew that he likes chewing on. If you have a old sock that's long enough to tie in a knot or two, that's also a good chew toy. (I have more things to post about cuz I have Chester now.)

I have an 8 year old daughter who also enjoyed the toy shopping So far our puppy has really loved bully sticks (these keep her busy a LONG time), nylabone puppy teething toys (we have the keys). She also likes the rope toys and those mini sized tennis balls. I also have to say if you can get her a pet friendly large stuffed animal, they love to sleep on it and crawl under it. We gave her an old pillow pet that she loves. We tried kongs also. She's just not into them very much yet, but I keep trying.

Have fun shopping! We ended up with more than we need I'm sure, but it's fun to rotate them out every few days.

Our pup likes having a variety to switch out. Small squeaky ones are great for fetch, bigger ones with ropey legs are great for wrestling/chewing/tugging, petstages crinkly discs are fun for all kinds of stuff. She has never rejected a new toy so it's hard to go wrong! Though balls are a little less fun for some reason. I cut off all tags and any fuzzy hair because those parts are easily shredded and eaten. I don't want my pup biting at people's socked feet so I wouldn't make a toy out of one just to avoid confusion.

Honestly, the toys my two have always played with the most are 1) old sock tied in a knot
2) empty plastic water bottle (cap removed)-great for scooting on the floor and chasing
3) skineez

Actually, Chester is afraid of squeaky toys and zooms off at the sound of them. I already know so much about him in only three days!

Brody's favourite is his puppy wubba (by Kong). It's a sturdy and versatile toy. It has two squeakers, can be used for tug, and throws nicely too. It's his go to toy.
