Well... first, these toys work for my guy. Might not be the same for other people's dogs, but you know.
<- $5.95 Duckworth squeaky stuffy from valley vet. I have no idea why, but these toys last longer than some of the other stuffies I've bought for Jacks that cost $10-20 more.
And it was the same thing way back when our Sammy and Danny were sharing toys. They loved their Duckworths and had one that lasted a few years.
Floaty monkey from valley vet. I bring this with when we go swimming. It floats and is waterproof and is made of a heavy duty type material that doesn't shred that easily.
<- THESE THINGS ARE FABULOUS! They are stuffing free squeaky toys. Basically feels like a plastic water bottle with the stuffy toy covering, except it squeaks and crackles. I bought one for Jacks from Target ($8.00) a few weeks ago and it's still intact and untorn.
<- For puppies. We got one of these for Jacks when he was a pup. We would keep it in the freezer and give it to him when he needed to chew. $2 from Petsmart.
<- We had one of these too. Again, kept it in the freezer.
<- Remember, latex toys a long time if you have a dog who shreds. I couldn't find the exact toy in the catalogs I browsed, but I have a weird latex and rope squeaker toy that has been around since the boy wunduh was a pup.
<- Cuzs are fun.
<- Every dog needs a rope toy. It's a requisite. They like playing tug (with other dogs) and they like shaking them and hitting themselves in the face.
<- And while browsing the toys at Petsmart, I kind just ordered this for my guy. Because again it is something he can "shake".
<- And my guy loves his squeakie kong balls, even if he has zero appreciation for any other kong products.
