    DefaultDog toys!

    Where do you buy your dog toys? Where can I get some that are not so expensive? Petsmart etc. are not only expensive, but they also do not have what I need.

    Goodwill! Any thrift store. You can buy all kinds of toys for Smiley for no more than 50 cents. Maybe a larger stuffie for $1.00.

    For "regulation" dog toys that are durable, most of the Kong products are good. Paddy always liked his rubber ring and a tire (like a tractor tire) for inventing his own games. But for the soft toys? Go to a thrift store. (See my comments in DieselDog's thread about "maturing dog").

    I'm a little mystified about what you could be buying a 6 year old dog that is getting so expensive. 2-3 items is plenty. Usually little puppies go through a lot because they are destroying them.

    I buy new nylabones every 4 months or so. Otherwise they get new toys at Christmas and that's it.

    I have amazon prime and usually their prices are pretty good with the free shipping.

    Oh man, Sharon. I keep forgetting Smiley is 6 years old. Good point.

    Marshalls often have great dog toys.

    I buy Jack's stuffies at Dollar General. They also have balls for $1 each. Pink ones. They fit in his chuck-it, bounce, and float...what more could you ask for in a ball.

    Does Smiley play with anything yet?

    Few dogs really play with toys other than say balls or retriever objects at that age. Maybe chewing a bone (antler, nylabone). I wouldn't be spending money on soft toys or anything like that unless the dog showed really interest at that age.

    He likes the hedgehog if I throw it.

    If he's a chewer, a big nylabone (the hard ones, not the soft ones). A rubber ball for fetching. Maybe a rubber kong to put treats in every now and then. My two have a nylabone that they chew on and a few balls that they like to chew on or play keep away with each other. Not a lot of variety, really. I don't think you need a lot of toys for an adult dog.
