Dog Toy Gifts 2014

Toys provide hours of stimulation for dogs, and here are five of them that should keep your pooch enthralled:

Benebone Wishbone Chew Toy

Benebone is a game changer for certain canines, such as arthritic dogs or puppies, who have difficulty chewing on standard bones. The innovative, ergonomic wishbone design allows dogs to easily raise one end to achieve maximum gnawing pleasure. While these long lasting, super strong, USA made, nylon bones are cooked in natural bacon or peanut butter, they are not to be swallowed.

Kyjen Hide-A-Squirrel Puzzle Toy

The Kyjen Hide-A-Squirrel isn’t your ordinary, run of the mill plush dog toy. This reverse puzzle was designed to promote eye-paw coordination skills, while appealing to the canine prey drive. Dogs seek out, and then remove these squirrels from their home — a delightful, plush tree trunk. As a reward for each hide-and-seek win, retrieved squirrels let-out a satisfying squeak with every bite. Replacement squeaky squirrels may even be ordered, if needed. Comes in Junior (3 Squirrel) and Jumbo sets.
