Pets at play: 10 best dog toys

Whether your pooch is a showing supremo or more of a mischievous mutt, try one of these toys to keep them busy

Dogs are just like us; they need to be kept busy, mentality stimulated and in tip-top health. There are a huge range of toys that can help. We’ve taken expert advice to find the best out there for canines of all breeds, ages and sizes. From the innovative alternative to potentially harmful wood, Safestix, to fun novelty-shaped squeakers like the Ruff and Tuff Mallard, there’s something to take all dogs’ – and their owners’ – fancy.

Verdict:

For dogs of all sizes, ages and breeds KONG’s chew toy will keep them busy, active and help with behavioural problems. We like the fact there’s a version especially designed for puppies’ needs too. If you’re looking for a more interactive toy, the Aerobie Dogobie or the Good Boy ball are winners for those games of fetch.
