Our Favorite Dog Toys for 2018
Your dog isn’t just a pet, he’s part of the family. Although there’s little doubt he enjoys spending time with you, he actually needs his own entertainment too & let’s be honest, sometimes it’s hard to find time for a walk. If you’re looking for something that will get your dog’s tail a wagging & keep them busy (remember — tired jaw, tired dog), these top five dog toys are some of our pups’ favorites. (Disclaimer: We have not been paid or asked to review these products, these are actual toys we’ve used and are giving our honest feedback).

Chuck It! Ultra Ball
Made of natural rubber, this ball is designed to have a high bounce on impact, making it the ideal ball for games of toss and fetch. Use alone or with the medium Chuck It! Ball Launcher (our other dog’s personal fav!).
- Buoyancy makes it great for pools and lakes
- Bright colors make it easily visible for outdoor playing

KONG Cozie Dog Toys
Available in 10 adorable characters, KONG Cozies are soft and cuddly, yet the extra layer of material on each plush toy means they are extra tough. Perfect for games of fetch or to provide comfort for your furkid while they are resting. We used a lot of soft toys for comfort when our younger dog was a puppy & crated a good bit, and he wasn’t able to destroy them.
- Minimal amount of filling means there is less mess
- Kong Cozies squeak providing extra excitement and enticement for your dog to play
- Comes in small and medium sizes
