KONG is a brand that has become synonymous with consistently producing innovative and high quality toys for pets. So it is no surprise that two of their most popular products feature in our top 5 dog toys. Simple and very effective, the KONG AirDog Squeakair Ball brings together two staple toys of a dog’s playtime, a squeaker and a tennis ball, and combines them to make an excellent fetch toy. Unlike normal tennis balls, the felt is specially designed to be non-abrasive and so will not wear down your dog’s teeth.
Ancol Plush Lamb Dog Toy
Designed for smaller dogs that like to have something to comfort them when you’re not at home, the Ancol Plush Lamb dog toy is a wonderful product. Small in size and made with softer materials, this toy holds onto the owner’s scent to help sooth any anxiety a dog may have when apart from its owner. This aspect of the product helps to give a new pup a sense of familiarity and also gives a dog something to comfort them when they fall asleep in the dark. As this is a soft toy it should be noted that it will not last forever, all dependent upon whether your dog likes to chew soft toys or not.
The KONG classic is the original toy that started it all for the company. Made with rubber that is non-toxic, non-abrasive, non-splintering and puncture resistant, this product is specifically designed to help with chewing and teething. The toy can be stuffed with healthy treats making it not only perfect for playtime, but also a fantastic training aid; helping with crate training, separation anxiety, destructive chewing and negative behaviour.
There is also a puppy version of this which has a special teething formula designed to help settle sensitive gums, as well as encouraging proper chewing habits. Both versions of this toy come in X-small, Small, Medium and Large.
Happy Pet Loofa Dog
One of the most popular dog toys in the U.K, the Loofa Dog (by Happy Pet) is a tried and tested classic with dogs of all shapes and sizes. It has a variety of different squeakers on different parts and will fast become your dog’s favourite toy, with its long body making it perfect for your dog to pick up and carry around in its mouth.
The Tug-A-Jug is a perfect blend of training tool and toy. This excellent product is designed to stimulate all five of your dog’s senses, providing interactive play and ample opportunity for positive reward training with basic commands. An added bonus of the Tug-A-Jug is that it can be used by your dog on its own or during playtime with you, especially as it is great for a game of hide and seek, fetch or tug.
