Best Plush Toys for Dogs in 2020



ZippyPaws - Woodland Friends Burrow, Interactive Squeaky Hide and Seek Plush Dog Toy Review:


 My dog LOVES this toy. I gave it to her for Christmas and it's still the only thing she wants to play with. Usually she gets bored with toys in a week. It's been about four weeks and she still loves her hedgehogs. It didn't take her long to figure out how to get the toys out. It used to keep her busy for a while but now it takes about 10 seconds for her to get them all out. She's gotten very fast at getting the hedgehog's out. She still loves to play with them and wants me to load them back up. I always make sure to load them up before I go to work in the morning and they are always all over the house when I get home. I can load other toys in the den as well to mix it up. I'm not sure if all dogs would enjoy this toy but my Maltipoo thinks it's the best. I will be buying other toys from zippy paws in the future.



SmartPetLove Snuggle Puppy Behavioral Aid Toy Review:


 Best thing ever for my elderly cat! I have a 16yr old tabby who had a lot of heart issues and discovered this toy through friends that were using it for their puppy. I decided to get one for my cat since she sleeps on my chest most nights and enjoys my heartbeat. There is a “heartbeat cat” that costs $10 more and it’s not like my cat knows the difference, so I got the dog version for cheaper. It’s super plushy and soothing. There is a Velcro pouch in the stomach where you pull out the plastic heartbeat device. The heartbeat part comes with 2 AAA batteries and they truly did last 2 weeks of 24/7 “heart beating.” I really appreciated how it came with an easy battery type to replace vs some obscure hard to find watch battery etc. You will need a small screw driver to open the heartbeat and remove the tape to allow the batteries to connect. Once the heartbeat is placed back into the stomach area of the stuffed toy, it truly feels like a real heartbeat! I leave this on my bed and my elderly cat sleeps next to it all day and it’s really helped her stay comfortable and keep her blood pressure down where it needs to be with her heart issues. It also is nice to keep her company while I’m at work for 8hrs each day. Best purchase I could of got for her final years. HIGHLY recommend.

 This little toy is so cute. I bought it for my 10 week old mini-dashchund, Layla. I am glad it is smaller than what I thought, because Layla is tiny herself. When I unwrapped it, she was getting excited. I put it on the floor, she gabbed it and took off wth it. Lol. She is enjoying it! Highly recommend this toy!



Outward Hound Interactive Puzzle Toy – Plush Hide and Seek Activity for Dogs Review:


I have a 1 year old pitbull mix who is a very strong chewer. I bought this after having read many many reviews knowing that it would probably be torn to pieces but that he would love it while it lasted. I was pleasantly surprised to find that with a little bit of supervision, this toy lasted a few months. He absolutely loves this toy!

The squirrels are the perfect size for him to hold in his mouth and carry around and they're a good size to toss around for a game of catch. If left to his own devices, he will absolutely shred this toy in about a minute. However, when we used it with him - by hiding the squirrels over and over and tossing them in the air for him to catch - and then put it away after playtime, they lasted quite a while. This toy will definitely not hold up to chewing but when used interactively and with supervision it's fun and will last a bit longer.

The squirrels have quite a few seams and are easy to tear apart. There's not really a whole lot of stuffing so not a huge mess but a mess nonetheless. The squeaker is just stuck in there with the stuffing with not extra reinforcement or protection so be aware of that if your dog likes to kill things that squeak. I really like that you can buy replacement squirrels and they're not that expensive.

The tree stump itself has generally held up well, although there is some tearing around the holes just from the dog shoving his nose in there over and over again. Some extra reinforcement around the openings would be wonderful and would make this last even longer.

Bottom line, I think most dogs would love this toy and if you're willing to supervise the play this should be a must buy. However, if your dog is a heavy chewer and you're looking for something you can leave out for them to play with at will, this is probably not the best choice.



Jalousie 12 Pack Dog Squeaky Toys Cute Plush Toys for Small Medium Dog Pets Review:


Why would a company go to the trouble to make such cute toys, put a brand name on them...then put really cheap squeekers in them?? I bought 2 bags of these toys for my girls for Christmas...within a couple of days...we were separating the toys that still had a bit of a squeaker..and ones that I needed to replace the squeaker. My girls are small 7 and 9 pounds?? Please...put in better noise makers...im tired of buying the toys ...then buying a bag of squeakers...to fix them a day or two after I give them to my girls!!

Update...most of the toys have come apart at the stitching .. These toys are not cheap..i won't be buying again.

Hyper Pet Doggie Tail Interactive Dog Toys - Wiggles, Vibrates, and Barks (Plush Dog Toys for Boredom and Stimulating Play) 1-Year Warranty for Manufacturer Defects Review:


My yorkie is full of energy and on cold wet Oregon days that turn into months she has no dog parks or more than a few min walks before she’s soaked and more unhappy than she started. We’re not in a place to buy her another playmate so I’ve beeb trying many options to find an interesting active responsive toy that engages her like another critter would. This toy is the closest I’ve found here (plus petsmart Petco and pet cabana) that’s the most life like instinctively active toy she can bite and kill with loud whimpering noises at the end. My husband and I hate the hurt animal cries it makes and it’s very loud but like most kids the louder annoying ones are their fast favorites. They sell replacement fur coverings too if you want to use with a larger dog that’s more aggressive but for my tiny yorkie she loves to catch him bark until he responds and ounce on him shaking her whole body over and over with full interest. You can also turn the noise off at bedtime but don’t forget to turn it back on while you’re off to work or school so they can have their fun and play even without you rather than chew things they’re not supposed to or bark incessantly because they’re bored lonely and anxious without their favorite humans. Wish they sold more like this in this brand but for now it’s my furkid’s bestie until the sun brings back her good friends and the grass she loves to play in minus the muddy mess.
