5 of the Best Dog Toys for 2019

Looking for a cool new toy for your dog? Boy, have we got a list for you! Here are five of the best dog toys for 2019.


You just can’t beat a Kong. Whether your dog is a casual or heavy chewer, they’ll love this toy. The design is super simple. Kongs are basically a hollow beehive shape that you can stuff with treats. However, what sets Kong apart is that their toys are extra tough. Even the heaviest of chewers won’t be able to bust the extra-durable Kongs. We also love these toys because they come in a variety of sizes and chew strengths so you can find the best one for your pup. Looking for something extra fun? Try the Kong Wobbler toy. Fill it up with tiny treats or even regular kibble and your dog is sure to have a ball.

Outward Hound Hide-a-Squirrel Dog Toy

If your dog goes bananas every time they see a squirrel, then this is the toy for you! This interactive plushie comes with an empty tree trunk and three squirrel squeaky toys. You can stuff the squirrels inside the trunk and your dog can have fun while they root around the trunk trying to find the squirrels. This toy also comes in a range of sizes so you can find the perfect one for your dog.

Trixie Pet Puzzle Toys

It can be tricky finding pet toys that will keep your dog occupied. After all, doggy boredom can lead to all sorts of destructive behaviors, such as chewing, digging, whining and barking. We love Trixie puzzles because they are great mental stimulation for bored dogs. Bust out one of these puzzles whenever you can’t give your pup your full attention. Simply stick some of your pooch’s favorite treats in the puzzle and watch your furry friend go hunting for their snack. These puzzles come in a variety of skill levels so you can find the perfect one to challenge your pup’s IQ.

Smart Pet Love Snuggle Puppy Behavioral Aid Toy

In addition to boredom, another problem we sometimes have with our pups is anxiety. If you have a new puppy or dog who is having anxiety problems, we highly recommend the Smart Pet Love Snuggle Puppy. This toy acts as a stand-in for your dog’s mother and comes with a heartbeat and self-warmer. The steady thump and warming action soothe even the most anxious of sleepers.

Wobble Wag Giggle Ball

Your dog will be absolutely obsessed with this weird — but great — little toy. The Wobble Wag Giggle Ball is pretty much exactly what it sounds like. It’s a ball that wobbles and giggles. Yep, you read that right. The ball giggles at you as if you’ve just cracked an insanely funny joke! The sound is a nice change of pace from your everyday squeaker. Plus, the toy has pits in it that make it easy for your dog to pick up in their mouth.
