    5. A toy with crinkle paper inside that will intrigue and excite your dog as they paw at it. Bonus: it's not as loud (or annoying) as a squeaker, so you'll be able to give your ears a break this winter!

    6. An extremely durable chew toy shaped liked a cactus that actually brushes your dog's teeth as they play with it. It will stay intact all winter long, even if your pup has an intense set of chompers.

    7. A collapsable cat tunnel that your feline friend will spend hours and hours running through. Even the laziest of cats will abandon their winter hibernation to sprint through these.

    8. A ball specifically designed to be used indoors because it's lightweight and has a soft outer shell (aka it protects surfaces in your home from being damaged).

    9. A cat scratcher pad with a ball and a mouse swatter, making it perfect for multi-cat households because it provides three fun-filled activities in just one toy!

    10. A set of balls for your bunny, guinea pig, or other small animal to chew, nudge, and play with so they can keep themselves occupied while they're in their cage all winter.

    11. Or this interactive toy that'll keep small pets like rabbits and chinchillas occupied while they search for treats hidden in the toy.

    12. A super tough bone great for larger breeds, because it can withstand intense chewing even as they continuously gnaw at this until springtime. The bone comes in a bacon or steak flavor, so your dog won't be able to resist.

    13. A set of plush toys that come in cute woodland animal designs and have three squeakers in each toy. It doesn't contain any stuffing, so if your dog gets a bit rough with it, you don't have to worry about fluff exploding all over your living room.

    14. A towered trackball toy – it plays into a cat's natural hunting instincts so they can let out some energy as they're cooped up inside. That means they'll stop pouncing on random items around the house and focus on playing with this toy instead.

    15. A small rope toy that your puppy can carry around, chew on, and play tug of war inside with when it's too cold or snowy to go outside. Plus: this comes in a set of four, so if they destroy one early in the season, just give them a new one!

    16. A large plush toy shaped like a duck about to become the winter companion your dog's been longing for. Oh, did we mention the squeaker?!
