When it’s time for an outdoor play session, many dogs love to stretch their paws and go on super long runs. But what if you’re not feeling quite that athletic yourself?

Well, that’s when you’ll want to pick up some toys that can keep your dog running and moving while you get to relax a little more.

Here are five toys for dogs who love to run really, really far.

1. A Classic Launcher Dog Toy

A smart and easy way to extend games of fetch is to make use of a launcher toy. These handy devices allow you to place a ball in the end of them and throw it up to three times as far as you’d normally be able to!

The Chuckit! brand’s classic launcher has the bonus of being crafted with ergonomics in mind, so you won’t wind up with tired or achy arms.

You’ll rarely ever meet a dog that won’t instantly take off running after a tennis ball. So why not up the intensity of the session by taking advantage of a tennis ball blaster?

Created by Nerf, this blaster will give you the power to shoot tennis balls up to 50 feet in the air. You can also use the toy to pick up any balls your pooch returns without dealing with any icky slobber.

Bring some variety to your next fetch session by adding a ring toy to the mix.

Chuckit!’s bright orange interactive ring toy has been designed so that, when it hits the ground, it will spin and bounce around in a wild and unpredictable fashion. The toy also floats too, so you can carry the fun over to any pool or pond excursions.

Thanks to the toy’s Bounceflex Core Technology, the ball bounces around in a soft fashion that’s safe for indoor play times. Feel free to launch it from the comfort of the couch!
