Sprong Dog Toy

There are two things you can plainly see from the video above:

This is a very loud toy!
Cassie simply adores it!
What you might not readily see though is that this is a TOUGH toy and has lasted in our “house where dog toys go to die” for several months.  Yes even that loud squeaker is still intact!

Top Ten Durable Dog Toys (Infographic)

Over the years, we’ve thrown out more dog toys than we care to admit.  After wasting tons of money on cheap dog toys that don’t last more than an hour or so, we’ve found some great toys that make the Ruff Toys Recommended List.  Where to buy?  Most of these toys can be found in our Amazon Shop.

FURminator FUR Dry

Bleh!  A Rainy Saturday. I’d rather be outside in the garden… or on the boat… or walking!  But here we are stuck inside with a dismal weather forecast.  Oh, well, the house needs a good scrubbing after a week of heavy pollen dust coating EVERYTHING!  But I’m taking a few minutes from cleaning to tell you about one of our favorite new dog products, FURminator FUR Dry towel.  These are GREAT!  No more dripping dogs in the house!

Hard Core Fire Hose by Kyjen

The Hard Core Fire Hose Tug ‘n Fetch by Kyjen is one tough toy! We’ve been using it as a pool toss all summer now, and it remains almost unscathed, despite frequent exposure to harsh chlorine, sun and dog teeth.

The bumper is made of super tough fire hose material, with additional reinforcement at the seams.

Mighty Balls by VIP Products

Another awesome toy from our friends at VIP Products. The Mighty Ball has been in the toy bucket for several months now and it’s held up remarkably well over the duration.  No signs of wear on it, and it gets a lot of play. The Mighty Ball is a fleece covered rubbery ball that squeaks, about 6″ in diameter.  The ball is just the right size — large enough so that it doesn’t get lost under furniture, works well as a kick ball, but small enough to pick up and carry around.  It’s also very flexible and soft on the mouth.
