Best Dog Toys for Small Dogs, Big Dog and Puppy – The Dog Bakery
As one of the AKC’s year after year, are popular toy dogs, offering a big personality in a tiny package.
Can’t recommend Kyjen invincibles. Gave my 10 pound Beagle mix the snake and she was able to rip through the seam and inner lining. Same goes for the Sherpa – ripped the end of the dino’s tail off and went to town on the stuffing. Granted her one goal in life is to disembowel all toys. I wish there were more tough fabric toys for small dogs – a lot of the ones available like the Tuffy are mostly way too big. At the moment, I’ve been giving her the cheapest stuffing-free toys while supervised (to take away any removed squeakers) and just considering them disposable. She gets to destroy a toy, my wallet is only slightly tortured.
We have big dogs that LOVE to chew on, and destroy their tennis balls. We tried tons of tough brands, but our doberman never chewed more than a few minutes before the balls would fall apart. Then we discovered the Chuck it balls. They are amazingly durable and deserve a spot on this list. Eventually they do wear out or get holes, but usually they last weeks sometimes months. We also found giving them more than one at a time makes them last longer, so they aren’t working on the same one constantly. We also love ones like Kong wubba made with the super durable fabric, but won’t buy them due the squeakers, with 2 large dogs we have a no squeaking rule for the sake of our sanity, and we find it ridiculous that toy makers feel the need to make everything squeak 🙁 Thanks for the article it was helpful!

Toy dogs face unique risks, including getting underfoot, slipping through cracks or being hugged too hard.When these two big, burly, 100-pound Bernese mountain dogs , they’re pretty evenly matched. Neither of them is very agile, and they kind of bounce about clumsily as they try to win the coveted toy.For a tougher toy, or for bigger dogs, braid three complete towels together and tie the ends or sew them up. NOTE: Old jeans can be used to make an even hardier braid.Perhaps a bigger problem than predators is the tendency of small-statured dogs to tumble from their owners’ arms and get hurt. Dr. Al Townshend, a vet in Chestertown, Md., said that’s the most common reason he sees toy dogs.If you are a dog owner, you might not always be so keen on neophilia. While dogs are interested in new objects, the interest is not always long-lasting. That makes sense; new things can't be new forever. Researchers at the University of Bristol Anthrozoology Institute and WALTHAM Center for Pet Nutrition explain that dogs “show intense but transient neophilia towards novel objects" (emphasis added). 'Transient’ is the real kicker for dog owners, particularly if you've shelled out big bucks for a new toy, only to find it alone in the corner 10 minutes later, replaced by the wrapping paper that it came in.
