    Remember to always supervise your pets while they play with their toys.

    1. A tire toy for adult power chewers who are ~on a roll~.

    Promising review: "It has outlasted many other toys for our little power chewer. He's had it for over a month, and there is barely a mark on it. He has destroyed the regular Kong treat holders within minutes, so this is amazing. Highly recommend it for destructive chewers." –Cecilia M Pulliam

    Get it from Amazon for $6.57+ (sizes S–L).

    2. And the same tire toy but in a pupper version, so those little teeth shall stay safe and satisfied.

    You can even turn this toy into a frozen treat for more chewing time, delish.

    Promising review: "We love this toy! The way I use it with my 10-week-old puppy is to fill half of it with a few items like pieces of kibble, tiny strips of carrot, apple chunks, tiny dog treats, or a little bit of ground meat (just whatever items I have around that are good for my puppy, and not calorie-laden). Cover with unsalted chicken broth and freeze. Once frozen, I turn it over and do the other side. Every night when my puppy becomes a strange, piranha-like creature biting everything and everyone, we settle him in his crate with his tire. He happily chews on it for 30–45 minutes to get the goodies out, and comes out calm and relaxed afterwards! I highly recommend for a similar purpose. Regarding sizing: I bought the medium/large for my 10-week-old golden retriever puppy, and think this size will be appropriate until he has adult teeth and needs a version for adult dogs." –DAOHIO

    Get it from Amazon for $7.89+ (sizes S, L).

    3. An adorable duck plushie your doggo will cuddle up to as *quack* as they can.

    Promising review: "My puppy loves this toy so much! She carries it around with her everywhere and surprisingly hasn't tried to tear it up like she has with other toys. She's had one for a few months now and I ordered her a second one just because. She loves them both! Very resilient toys." –Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $6.71.

    4. A gator bottle toy that'll give your woofer the crunch they crave.

    Just insert an empty plastic bottle into the gator sleeve, and watch your woofer crunch away.

    Get it from Petco for $5.19.

    5. A flirt stick worthy of ~toying with~ your dog's herding instinct.

    Promising review: "This is an awesome toy and I wish I purchased it a lot sooner. We played with this a lot when it was too cold to go outside for a walk. My dog loves it and gets so excited when I take it out of the closet. She is a herding dog, and loves chasing moving things, so this was perfect. The pole is great quality and has held up to my medium dog's tugging." –RCSINY

    Get it from Amazon for $16.59

    6. A glow-in-the-dark flying disc ready to accomplish it all. It floats on water, and is made with soft rubber edges to protect the gums of the super energetic doggo you love.

    Doggo, take flight.

    Get it from PetSmart for $13.95.

    7. A plushie puzzle filled with hiding, squeaking chipmunks – here to *fulfill* every doggo's dreams.

    Hello, I am doggo and I fantasize the death of many squirrels.

    Promising review: "My dog loves this toy! I wanted a more interactive toy for him that is more than just chewing on fabric. He loves getting the squirrels out of the trunk. He gives them a little victory squeak when he gets one." –Gabrielle Mullins

    Get it from Amazon for $7.99+ (available in four animals, sizes junior–ginormous).

    8. A classic Kong toy just waiting to be stuffed with your dog's favorite treats.

    Promising review: "My 85 lbs. German shepherd loves this XL Kong. I break large dog biscuits into pieces just slightly larger than the opening, so that they poke out a little, also a few smaller pieces mixed in. (I use Blue brand health bars, broken into triangles, they are much bigger than the usual dog treats.) He either picks it up and drops it, causing the smaller pieces to fall out, or he has to chew the Kong to get the bigger pieces out. I've had this for two months, and it has no tears or breaks, perfectly intact after almost daily strong chewing. Overall, a great, durable, and safe toy." –T. Schilger

    Get it from Amazon for $4.42+ (sizes XS–XXL).

    9. A pupper puzzle worthy of the brainiac dog who is about to ~flip their lid~ from boredom.

    Promising review: "This was my first dog puzzle purchase and I'm happy I got it. My dogs get excited every time they see it, five dogs. I space out how often I bust this toy out so they don't get bored with it." –Rebekah J.

    Get it from Amazon for $11.70+ (available in multiple styles and difficulty levels).

    10. A three-ring teether so your precious baby pupper can put those chompers to good use.

    Look at that lil' babe chew on non-furniture, amaze.

    Promising review: "This is the perfect teether for puppies! My husband and I just added a French bull/dach puppy to our household, and what a little terror! All she wants to do is chew and this little teether satisfies her for a time. It offers three different shaped chewing areas, and on each there is a unique pattern on one of the sides. Our pup utilizes all three and it seems the variety helps to keep her interest! She's able to pick up the toy and carry it around with her as well, even though she is only 2.5 lbs." –D. Kaczmarek-Birk

    Get it from Amazon for $4.29.

    11. A very scary hairdryer with a rope cord that just may help your good girl/boy face their fears.

    Get it from Bark Box for $8.

    12. A three-pack of stuffing-free animal pelts for the doge who loooves to rip out stuffing and make a mess.

    All the fun with three squeakers and no mess.

    Promising review: "These are so cheap versus what I normally pay at a pet store. AND they’re actually stuffing-free. Have you seen those toys that say stuffing-free, except they have stuffing in the head or part of the tail? These are completely, 100% stuffing-free, which is just what I needed. My pups absolutely love them!" –samshimo

    Get a three-pack from Amazon for $8.10+ (sizes S, L).

    13. A classic tennis ball with a squeaky twist so your dog will be even more enthralled come fetch time.

    Promising review: "My shepherd adores anything and everything that makes that obnoxious squeaking sound, so of course he adores these tennis balls. Everything we have purchased from KONG has lasted as long, if not longer, than we expected. Good buy!" –JBRS

    Get it from PetSmart for $1.33+ (sizes M–XL).

    14. A 12-pack of mini tennis balls your best buddy won't want to put down.

    Little dogs love fetch, too!

    Promising review: "My chihuahua loves it. They work with the iFetch machine for a reasonable price. Only problem is that my dog is good at hiding these, so having 12 helps." –Sabina

    Get them from Amazon for $14.99.

    15. And an iFetch machine that'll keep all ball-obsessed woofers entertained on their own for hours.

    Not only does it launch the balls for you, but most dogs can be trained to drop the ball into the launcher; eliminating all work on your part.

    Promising review: "My labs love it. Even with the tennis balls full of dog drool, it still launches the ball. Took about an hour to teach them how to drop the ball into the top hole. It's a bit expensive but you get what you pay for; because it has a rechargeable battery I bring it to the lake with us. Now I can sit and relax by the beach." –Amazon Customer

    Get them from Amazon: small iFetch for mini tennis balls $115 and large iFetch for standard tennis balls for $199

    16. A rope toy tough enough for the tug-of-war-loving doggo and all their friends.

    Promising review: "My puppy Apollo gives this two paws up. He loves these to the death. I've gotten the L and XL, and both are great. They also last forever, even when he takes all 220 lbs. toe-to-toe with his BFF 90 lbs. boxer in a tug-of-war match." –DAHTcom

    Get it from Amazon for $3.99+ (sizes XS–XL).

    17. And a small Chewbacca ring toy to satisfy the little fluffer who wants the best of *both worlds*.

    Rope toy and plushie, here we come.

    Get it from Petco for $4.54 (size small).

    18. A five-pack of food-inspired squeakers the foodie among us shall adore.

    Promising review: "These little squeaky toys were just what I was looking for! There is no offensive odor, no horrible taste, and the pup actually likes playing with them. No bad odor, no bad taste, just great squeaky fun!" –V. Harper

    Get them from Amazon for $6.99.

    19. An interactive toy for the destructive pup that'll become what you make it – tug-of-war, fetch, or bounce, anyone?

    Promising review: "Our dog has one mission in life: destroying hard and soft toys alike. He pulls chunks out of the brand X toys at the local department store in no time. For quality toys, he can pull pieces off a large red Kong toy without much effort. He's even wrecked a couple of the black Kong 'Extreme' toys. He has not managed to do much to this, other than scuff it! This and the other toys we've gotten from West Paw have held up wonderfully. They don't skimp on the amount of material they use, so you can get toys from them that are literally a thick, solid piece of material. Dog is happy." –Nacho

    Get it from Amazon for $12.95 (available in three colors, sizes S, L).

    20. A subscription box full of high-quality toys guaranteed to make your pup's eyes go wide every time it arrives.

    Promising review: "I *adore* a good theme, which made opening this box an utterly delightful experience for my extreme type-A soul. The hippo has easily become Ruggie's favorite toy of all time; it was one of the only things that comforted her after her surgery." –Claire de Louraille

    Read our full review from the experts at Buzzfeed here.

    Get it from BarkBox starting at $21+ (available in three sizes – as 12-month, 6-month, and 1-month subscriptions, as well as a one-time gift box)).

    21. And last but not least, a perfectly sized ball so the tiny angel in your life isn't left out of all the fun.

    If you've ever had the sad experience of your small doge chasing after a ball that is just too big, this is the toy for you. Also available for big dogs!

    Promising review: " I love this ball! I bought the medium size, hot orchid color. It has held up so far with our eight-week-old 'land shark' – shiloh shepherd puppy. It's light, easy for her to carry around, and a quiet ball, too! Shipped quickly. Thanks ❤" –Heidi Pierce

    Get it from AmandaLynnCrochet on Etsy for $6+ (available in 58 colors, sizes mini–large).

    All the pups getting all their toys.
