This is one of the best alternative to a normal wooden stick!
‘Wooden sticks can cause injury to dogs’ teeth, gums and mouths, yet they love to play with them. Available in three sizes, these are a safer alternative. They’re durable, comfortable to hold and will float – just the thing for a game of fetch on the beach.’
‘They are bendable and flexible which provides interesting and engaging fun for dogs.’
These are available in a variety of colours and sizes ranging from £8.98 to £12.57 at Amazon.
4. Mungo and Maud Pull My Leg Monkey Toy
This may be on the pricier side, but it’s well worth it for dogs who like t o pull things apart.
‘This toy from the luxury pet accessories store is designed with that instinct in mind. The fleece monkey’s limbs are attached with velcro, so will come off when tussled with, and it squeaks when squeezed. It’s not cheap, so this is one for pampered pooches.’
This is available at £22.95 in the size of 22cm (length) at Mango and Maud.
5. Aerobie Dogobie disc
At it’s cheap price of only £6.99 it’s a perfect toy for all dogs!
‘Many dogs love a game of Frisbee, but plastic flyers often have hard rims which can damage teeth. This softer rubber alternative from the (mostly human) sports toy specialists is easy to throw and flexible, but durable enough to last many a game of fetch. It’s tear and puncture resistant but try to stop your dog chewing on it.’
The size of the disc is 8 inch diameter and is available in blue and yellow, the two colours seen by dogs. (Dogs see other colours as shades of grey.)
This is available at the price of £6.99 at Aerobie.
