Creative New Dog Treat Toy – Your Dog will Love!

Dog Treat Toy

New treat dispensers from West Paw

The Toppl dog treat toy by West Paw is one of the best things we saw at the Global Pet Expo. West Paw gave us one to try out and it has been a complete hit with our dog Kobi. We can easily stuff a bully stick in it (see blue Toppl with bully stick in it to the right) and the Toppl dog treat toy makes it much easier for Kobi to hold.

The Toppl traps treats with its inner ridges. You can interlock two Toppl dog treat toys (via 2 different sizes) and it makes it more of a challenge for your dog to get at the treats inside.

The toy is also bounce-able and while, Kobi is not the best dog tester for durability, I think this product appears to be very durable, i.e. quite indestructable. I’d give it to one of my tough dog toy testers, but we like it too much to give it away.  😉

All of West Paw’s Zogoflex dog toys (Topple being one of the line) are recyclable, BPA-and-phthalate-free, FDA compliant (meaning it’s safe to eat off of), and guaranteed to last. It’s also safe to put in the dishwasher.

It comes in two sizes (small and large) and three colors (blue, green, orange).

West Paw put together a cute video of the Toppl which demonstrates how it works:

Top 3 Tough Dog Toys

We consistently get asked for recommendations on tough dogs toys. So we scoured and tested many toys in the market to find you our Top 3 Tough Dog Toys!

Who were our testers? Well, Dogsized is a member of Downtown Dogs NYC and some members claimed their dogs could destroy ANY toy. So we gave them some toys to test and these three came out on top (no particular ranking order – these three were all equally great).

IndestructaBALL - tough dog toys

Sir James and his IndestructaBALL

“Sir James” was given the Aussie Naturals IndestructaBALL and was proven to be indestructible. James was really excited about the ball and put in a remarkable effort at sending it to the James Destruction Graveyard, which includes every toy he’s ever owned, every sock he’s ever found, many, many shoes (mostly the expensive ones), several duvets and pillows (and the bedding that encased them), glasses, remotes, iPhone chargers, etc…

IndestructaBALL Tough Dog Toys

Emma and her IndestructaBALL

The Border Collie in him powered through the challenge and stubbornly found a way to clamp his jaws of steel around it (the 4″ ball was slightly big for his mouth). He loves the shaking noise that it makes. Ultimately the Bassett Hound in him took over once he realized that the toy has beaten him, and he collapses and gives it that Bassett stink-eye as it roles away from him.

The IndestructaBALL is 100% natural, eco friendly and made from mango wood. It contains natural wood pellets and makes noise when it moves. We also gave Emma the 5.5″ Aussie Naturals IndestructaBALL. She’s been able to rough it up, but it’s held up well. Emma’s parent’s biggest concern was possible splinters, but the mango wood was soft enough to not create sharp splinters. As you can see, Emma loves the ball!

Abe and his Starmark Chew Ball

Abe and his Starmark Chew Ball

Another winner was the Starmark Treat Dispensing Chew Ball. We gave this to Abe to test. We were forewarned that no toy could hold up to his jaws of steel, but this toy survived the test!

To quote Abe’s mom’s last update: “Abe LOVES that ball and it is still in tact! A miracle!” The Treat Dispensing Chew Ball can be filled with a variety of treats and kibble to keep your dog mentally stimulated and happily occupied. The material is stronger and lighter than natural rubber and is free of latex, vinyl & phthalates.

The third winner is a stuffed animal – Invincibles. All of the parents with “jaws of steel” dogs thought there was no way a stuff animal could survive some tough dog love, but the Invincibles proved them wrong!

Invincible Dog Toy

Invincible Dog Toy

We gave Bailey, a 55lb Boxer, the Invincibles snake dog toy. After a week of playing hard core with her new squeaky friend, Bailey finally was able to remove the two eyes and only one of the squeakers. Bailey’s parents told us it was the most durable “made for dogs” toy she’s ever had and the longest a toy like this has remained in one piece. With other stuffed dog toys, Bailey is able to take out the stuffing and eyes within the first 15 minutes of playing. Bailey’s parents gave the Invincible a thumbs up: “I would say this is a durable toy and will provide hours of fun and noise for your dog.”

Treat Dispenser Toys – Fun & Yum!

Dog Toy - Twist 'n Treat

Twist ‘n Treat

Give your dog some mental exercise and fun with a treat dispenser toy – put your dog’s food or tasty treats in a toy and your dog works to get to the food. Especially for puppies, it’s a great way to keep dogs entertained.

Dog Treat Toy

Star Spinner

By nature, dogs are made to hunt, scavenge and work for their food. So these treat dispenser toys will give your dog some work and opportunity to use their problem solving skills. They are especially helpful for puppies as they can keep them entertain for long periods of time and as a result they are less likely to destroy other things in your home. They’re also great for dogs that have behavior problems which might be a result of sheer boredom, often due to a lack of physical exercise, problem solving opportunities and outdoor exploration. We’re sure you’d prefer him chewing on a food toy rather than your shoes.

Food stuffed dog toys

Food Stuffed Bone

You can get something as simple as a food stuffed bone to an interactive dog puzzle such as a Star Spinner or Kibble Drop Treat Dog Toy. Some dog trainers even recommend that you give up feeding your dog from a bowl and instead use these interactive dog food and treat dispenser toys to give your dog more mental challenges.

Atomic Ball

Atomic Ball

If your dog is quick to figure these toys out, an excellent way to keep them busy for a long time is to get a food stuffed bone or classic Kong, fill it with the treat (e.g. peanut butter or wet dog food) and then freeze it. Since the treat is frozen, it’s going to take much longer for your puppy or dog to finish it. Another tip – if the food is stuck in the toy, I use a strong, plastic chopstick to get it out.
