Season's best dog toys

Trying to find the best dog toy for your pooch this holiday? Look no further—here are the best dog toys of the season!

Season's best dog toys

With the holidays upon us, it’s time to make a list, check it twice, and get shopping for the beloved people and dogs in your life. While we can’t recommend what to buy Grandma this season, we can tell you about this season’s best dog toys for canines. From mental and physical stimulation to high tech toys and go-to treats, we’ve got the best of the best to make your shopping a little easier.

Challenging Toys for Dogs

Does your dog inhale their food? The Outward Hound Fun Feeder Slow Feed Interactive Bloat Stop Dog Bowl challenges your fast eater to eat slower, stimulates their mind, and allows their body to digest properly.

Do they have a need to be busy? Try the PetSafe Buddy Magic Mushroom Dog Toy that wobbles and rolls, turning mealtime into playtime. Watch your dog get excited about the challenge of getting kibble from their toy. Not only does it keep them busy, it stimulates their mind. Another mind-stimulating option is the Trixie Flip Board Dog Toy; used with kibble or training treats, dogs have to figure out how to get their tasty snack.  

Weight Loss Toys for Dogs

Give your arm a break and your dog a bit of exercise with the iFetch ball launcher. Marketed as the calorie-free interactive dog toy, iFetch and iFetch Mini launch tennis balls for your dog giving them hours of exercise while stimulating their brain allowing for independent playtime.

For those wanting and interactive toy, the Chuckit Classic Launcher is a great gift idea. The launcher allows users to throw tennis balls two or three times farther and is hands-free to avoid dog slobber. The lightweight plastic is ergonomic and easy to use with tennis or Chuckit balls.

High-Tech Pet Toys

Do you miss your dog when you’re away from home? Get a Petzi Treat Cam and never wonder what your dog is doing again! This pet-friendly webcam allows you to speak to your pet, view live video, including via night vision, and dispense treats all through an app on your phone. Once they get used to the treats, you’re likely to see them near the camera even more!

If you’re wondering how your dog sees the world, grab your GoPro and attach it to the GoPro Fetch Camera Mount Harness and let your dog wander. Whether it’s a walk around the house, a trip around the neighborhood, or a hike in the woods, you can see it all from a dog’s point of view.

Go-To Dog Toys

I don’t know about you, but my terrier gets excited when we have visitors. Our go-to toy is a bully stick. Easier to digest than rawhide, it keeps our dog focused and busy, so we can enjoy time with guests. Bully sticks are available in various lengths, thicknesses, and shapes to satisfy every chewing strength. When we run out of bully sticks, there’s always the ultra-durable kong; add treats, kibble, or peanut butter to prolong independent playtime and fulfill your dog’s need to play.


What will you be giving your beloved dog this holiday? The Figo Team wishes all of you a safe and happy holiday season!
