Best Toys for Labs 2021

Labrador Retrievers are a playful, athletic, and energetic breed which is what makes them such a popular breed for many. Because they are so playful, it might be difficult to find the right toy for your dog and there are so many to choose from. Here are some of the best toys for labs from balls to puzzle toys.

Outdoor Toys

Kong Squeezz

This squeaky bouncy ball is fun to chase as it has a crazy bounce to it. This unpredictable ball makes it fun to play with and easy to find with its bright colors.

This soccer ball is large and in charge which is great for playing outdoors as it is very durable. The ball is made from a special material that is both tough and flexible and will not deflate even if it is pierced. 

Planet Dog Orbee-Tuff

Shaped like fruits and vegetables, these toys are fun and great for playful dogs. These toys float, bounce, and are dishwasher safe – they even double as a treat dispenser if you choose.

Indoor Toys

An animal that is not filled with stuffing can be a great option for dogs that love to chew and play rough. This toy features lots of textures and sounds to stimulate your lab while playing, but with less mess than a typical animal.

Durable Toys

Interactive Toys

PetSafe Busy Buddy Barnacle

Hide-and-Slide Dog Puzzle Toy for Labs

Great for developing problem-solving and keeping your dog busy, this toy requires some thought as your dog plays. There are several different compartments that can be filled with kibble or treats which need to be opened up to retrieve the food.
