What to Look for in the Best Dog Toys

Every dog owner wants to give their dog the best dog toys. There’s nothing more upsetting than a beloved toy not holding up as long as you and your dog had hoped.

What makes a dog toy the best though?

Of course, you want your dog to enjoy their toys, but that’s only one part of the equation. The best dog toys should be durable, long-lasting, and versatile.

Toys can be expensive and we understand that you want to get the most for your money. Value is an important part of what makes a dog toy the best of the best.

That’s why we created the Fenrir Hammer.

The Best Dog Toys are Versatile

It can be easy to feel overwhelmed by the vast amount of different dog toys on the market. There are chew toys, tug toys, interactive toys you can fill with treats, toys for fetch, toys for teething and so many more.

You probably feel like you need to buy multiple of each to make sure your dog has what they needs and to make sure you have replacements once they wear out.

The problem with these toys is they’re normally sold at a big-box ‘specialty’ store and they aren’t very good quality.

The best dog toys will be high quality and able to be used in a large variety of situations.

Something like the Fenrir Hammer can be used for all of the things mentioned above. It can even be used as a slow feeder to help reduce the chances of bloat and used to help with things like separation anxiety.

This means you can buy fewer toys and save yourself some money as well as some heartache when they do finally wear out. You can simply replace it with the exact same one.

The Best Dog Toys are Durable

Most toys that are sold at big-box stores are made from cloth, rope, or cheap plastic.

Cloth can easily tear, rope can be shredded and plastic may crack if bitten down on too much.

The best dog toys are made of high-quality materials like rubber that are specially formulated to hold up to tough, frequent chewing. This material won’t fray or crack during playtime or a good chew session.

It can be so hard to clean and dry cloth or rope toys. You can put them in the washer, but they might fall apart or they might not make it through a cycle in the drier. If you hand wash or machine wash them and hang them to dry: they might mildew.

With a high-quality rubber toy, this isn’t a problem. Food can’t get ground into the fibres and neither can dirt or grime.

They can very easily be washed by hand. You can use a bottle brush to clean out the cavity that gets filled with food and then clean the outside with a sponge. Then, rinse with clean water and dry.

They’re also able to be sanitized in the dishwasher.
