Incorporating reinforced stitching, these toys are practically indestructible and can survive the sharpest fangs. Likewise, made from hard-wearing plush, these 'counterfeit' bottles will not start losing shape/volume with time.

CONS

A bit overpriced. 

OUR VERDICT

The two fake bottles that come with Nestpark White Paw look a lot more fun than most dog toys. At 7 x 2.5 inches, these plush mock bottles will accommodate large, medium-sized, and small dogs alike.

While the top produces that classic squeaking sound that we've come to expect from dog toys, the disc base gives off a deeper sound. The crinkle paper hidden throughout the toy Barkbox provides extra stimulation.

The squeaker is a little annoying.

Give Barkbox 2-in-1 Interactive Dog Squeak Toy to your dog and watch your shoes and furniture be spared from a terrible fate. Plus, when the dog finally destroys the first toy, he will find a second toy hiding inside it.

Nestpark White Paw

Spiked Barkling Water

Drinking alone is sad. Drinking with your tail-wagging friend, however, is pretty fun. With Nestpark White Paw, you can make your dog your new drinking pal. Of course, these bottles of 'spiked barkling water' do not contain alcohol. Truth be told, they do not contain anything. Full disclosure - they're not even bottles. But they do look the part, and dogs love 'em, so who cares that they're not necessarily legit?

What matters is that these fake bottles are excellent chewing toys. Featuring reinforced stitching, they can take a considerable lickin' and keep on tickin'. Plus, because they feature integrated squeakers, dogs usually find these toys plenty engaging.

But, as much as we appreciate the design and the fact that you can choose between natural lime and black cherry flavors (again, there's nothing inside these faux bottles, but it is the thought that counts), the price is a little steep on these things. However, they should last more than more value-oriented chewing toys. Also, measuring 7 inches tall, these toys fit small, medium, and large dogs alike. So, if you want not just a great toy for your furry friend but also a fun conversation starter, Nestpark White Paw will not leave you disappointed.

SHARLOVY 14 Pack

More Toys

SHARLOVY 14-Pack Dog Chew Toys will keep your pup engaged for a long time. First, the pack includes 9 rope toys. Handmade and woven from cotton, these toys can handle fetch games as well as fierce tug of war games. What's more, because you receive 9 of these toys, you can always replace a broken one with a new toy. Your doggo will have fun, and your shoes/furniture will remain safe and sound.

Besides these rope toys, the kit features a dog toothbrush chew toy and a rubber bone toy. Made from natural hard-wearing rubber, these toys boast above-average elasticity, making them tough as nails and twice as durable. Furthermore, they also clean the dog's teeth, keeping its breath a little less smelly and improving the tail wagger's oral health. In the same vein, the paw-shaped pad shape makes these toys easy to grab, with little nubs soothing the pup's gums.

Then, we have the IQ dog treat ball, with a textured surface that prevents the toy from rolling too far. Making adorable squeaking sounds, this toy 'persuades' puppies to toss and roll the ball so that they can get the snacks out. Finally, as you would expect, the frisbee toy is there to enable fetch games, whereas the banana plush toy with a built-in squeaker will be able to get your dog's attention.

In conclusion, again, with SHARLOVY 14-Pack Dog Chew Toys, you won't have to buy another dog toy for a long time.

KONG Toughest Natural Rubber

Fun Times and Treats

The only thing that dogs love more than playing is receiving treats. With this mindset, the people at Kong have created this so-called extreme dog toy. What makes it extreme? Well, has to be the ultra-durable yet natural rubber that this toy is made from. Owing to its high-strength rubber composition, the toy can withstand even the most determined chewers. What's more interesting, however, is the erratic, unpredictable bounce that this weird thing has, aiding more entertaining playtime.

Where do treats come into play though? But with the hole on the toy's bottom, of course. Fill it with snacks (chopped bananas, cup applesauce, butter snacks broken into small pieces, kibble bits, etc) and watch your best friend chase the toy with newfound excitement. You can also freeze the toy with some snacks inside, making the game a little more challenging. And, as is usually the case, you can choose between small, medium, large, extra-large, and even extra-extra-large options.

What you cannot choose is the strong rubbery smell that follows the toy initially. The good news is that the smell goes away within the first few days and, as far as we're aware, the dogs don't mind it at all, so you can purchase this toy without worrying about this little flaw.

Outward Hound Interactive Puzzle Game

Dog Puzzle Toys

Dogs are smart creatures. But, just like with people, their smarts have to be developed, trained, and sharpened. With Outward Hound Interactive Puzzle Game, you can do just that. Introducing advanced problem-solving play, this toy challenges the doggie, making him learn sequential steps. Not only that, training his brain, the toy also reduces the pup's destructive tendencies.

What you do is hide the treats underneath these triangular block compartments and block them with the white plastic tabs below. Before the dog figures out the right sequence, he will not be able to unlock the blocks, moving them so that they reveal the elusive treats.

Because the toy comes equipped with integrated play pieces that cannot be removed, you can use this interactive puzzle game without introducing a choking hazard into it. Where the toy falls a little flat is with its maintenance requirements. Despite what the people behind it are claiming, the block compartments are pretty difficult to clean. As long as you're okay with that, there are very few dog toys that will prove equally entertaining and beneficial for your puppy's mental faculties as Outward Hound Interactive Puzzle Game. Plus, the price is more than fair.

Barkbox 2-in-1 Interactive

Two Squeakers are Better than One

Barkbox 2-in-1 Interactive Dog Squeak Toy is as interactive as it is chewy. Before that, though, you will 'have to' choose between Muy Squeaky Margarita, Nikolai the Nutcracker, Paulina the Sugar Plum Fairy, or Wilhem the Walnut. They're all adorable, but we like the first option a little more than the rest. The reason is that the crinkle-filled plush top has a ballistic nylon lime slice and a classic dog squeaker, while the disc base produces a deeper, more satisfying squeaking sound. Every other toy features two squeakers as well but they're not quite as well-separated as these two, making these toys a bit less convenient.

What's also convenient about the subject toy is the crinkle paper that the entire 'wineglass' is filled with, providing additional stimulation. On a relatively negative side, some owners might find the top squeaker a little loud and annoying, but dogs seem to love it. The same owners will also likely appreciate the hanging loop that this toy comes outfitted with, enabling practical storage. Last but not quite least, aside from the four different toys, you can also pick between 3 sizes, aimed at small, medium, and large dogs.

Long story short, if you want to keep playtime safe yet entertaining, Barkbox 2-in-1 Interactive Dog Squeak Toy should fit that bill.

What Are Dog Toys?

Let's be honest for a moment - dogs are better than people. They're kind creatures that know no malice and that do not harbor ill will toward anyone but their natural enemies. Plus, keeping them entertained requires a lot less effort and forethought than human beings. Generally speaking, buy some 15-buck toy and you're good. Having said that, some toys are better than others, just like the toys that we've gathered on this list.

The ones that we've listed here are more durable than the usual deal. They're made from non-toxic materials and, more often than not, incorporate different design solutions that prevent them from tearing or breaking apart within the first few months of play. Some toys are simple plush toys, created for fetch and tug of war games, while some come with squeakers and various interactive elements. There are even educational toys that can teach your furry buddy new tricks or help him develop his problem-solving skills.

Of course, when you feel like going to the park and using these toys outdoors, make sure you don't forget to purchase a quality dog harness and a dog leash first.
