Surprise Party Treat Puzzle.

Rating 4.5 out of 5. Review: Easy to fill with treats and my dog got it after about 3 tries. It took him several times to get the purple box, but I like that it kept his interest. He kept pawing it and using his nose. I could see the wheels turning in his little brain!

2.) Hunger for Words Talking Pet Starter.

Rating 3.9 out of 5. Ratings: 4,892. Review: These work great. You just have to talk loud and clear VERY close to the microphone and it will record your voice nicely. I mean right up on it.

3.) Starmark Bob A Lot Interatactive dog toy.

Rating 4.4 out of 5. Ratings: 27,798. Review: I purchased a few "puzzle toys" for my Wheaten and this is by far his (and my) favourite. I load the bottom with his kibble and then close the middle hole to about-food-size and fill the top with kibble too. The outer "door" can be wide open, which lets multiple pieces fall out at once, or I can make it harder so that the kibble has to hit the opening at the right angle for it to actually fall out. In the 11 days that we've had this toy so far, it has been bumped, nosed, pawed, mouthed, picked up in dog jaws and brought to the dog bed, and even (attempted to be) chewed on. Not once has the dog figured out how to open it on his own. It hasn't broken or been damaged by teeth. He knows how the "treats" come out and is willing to work at it and keep trying until they do.

4.) Dog toys for aggressive chewers.

Rating 4.2 out of 5. Ratings: 2,029. Review: This toy is very durable. My dog, Apollo, is a very intense chewer. He's an Australian Shepherd and as this breed goes, he needs a lot of exercise - feet, legs, body, butt, mouth and brain. This toy has endured his rigorous chewing sessions. The only exception is the red piece on the toy, which he's been extra concentrating on and has managed to remove small pieces. The toy can be filled with treats and unlike other fillable toys it has a smaller opening and two small tabs that do help keep treats inside the toy. This feature makes this toy a good enrichment toy. We put his kibble inside and he has a good time figuring out how to get his food out! He's pretty smart doesn't take him too long. This toy also has some deep ridges on the outside that you can put peanut butter or squeeze cheese or maybe a small treat stick? I've not tried this but it does look like it would work.

This isn't a toy that I would throw inside a house, it's heavy and could break all sorts of things. Apollo will throw it around himself and that's fine, his aim isn't that great!

5.) Tikaton Hammerbone

Rating: 4.2 out of 5. Ratings; 156. Review: My 9 mo old APBT loves this bone. Plus he hasn't destroyed it in the over a month since he's had it, which is almost unheard of for him! This is definitely worth the money!

1. ) Sheraton Luxuries 3 LED Light Up Bouncy Dog Balls with Sounds.

Rating 3.9 out of 5. Ratings 248. Review: I received the balls and was throwing them one after the other and my blind miniature schnauzer was running right to them and bringing them right back to me! They’re really good, I just wish when they were thrown that the sound and the lights would last a little bit longer when it’s rolling on the ground but she seems to find them with no problem.

2.) Bark and bounce, interactive dog toy.

Rating 3.9 out of 5. Rating number 1,489. Review: Excellent ball! Same great

sounds as the wiggle waggle that my 5 year old boxer is obsessed with! But it bounces and is made of rubber so less damage to her teeth and mouth.

3.) Cheerble interactive dog toy.

Rating 4 out of 5. Review: I got this ball for my dog. He likes to fetch and chase after his balls so I figured this would be great. So let’s be honest that most of the time I don’t feel like throwing the ball for extended periods of time. That’s where this guy comes in. Simple design and features. Charge up the ball and turn it on. I have to say that the ball does exactly as it says. It will roll itself around and bounce every so often. It works flawlessly. My dog, not so much. I don’t know what it is about him. He seems to be afraid of this like it’s possessed by some dark malevolent force.

4.) AFP automatic dog ball launcher.

Rating 4.1 out of 5. 1,036 ratings. Review: The part I don't like is that this is for mini-size tennis balls. It comes with three but does nothing for any of the dozen tennis balls I already have for the dogs. Two of my dogs love standing in front of it to catch them as they come out, the other one prefers to chase after it after launching. We just need to work on getting them to learn how to drop the balls in themselves :)

5.) Wicked bone, smart bone.

Rating 3.4 out of 5. Ratings: 1,763. Review: This is a wonderful product. My dog loves it. The only thing I wish would be improved are the pads on the end I wish they were a little more rubberized and sturdy for chewing. I have a little Yorkie that loves to chew and loves this toy but I haven't even had it a full month yet and already have to replace the pads because he chew through it other than that it is a wonderful product. Also I wish the sounds would come through the bone rather than my phone, but at least I can turn the sounds off.

6.) Furbo Dog Camera

Ratings: 4.5 out of 5. 32,732 ratings. Review: Love this..our COVID puppy had separation anxiety. The Furbo made us feel less guilty leaving her home alone. Love it…I click on treats and she is happy plus we can talk to her.
