I was looking for suggestions on good toys for Cocoa.. She's 5 1/2 mos old, but will pretty much destroy any toy we give her. I have to find something to keep her occupied at times! ??? She has some toys (balls) that she'll play with for a few minutes then quickly loses interest. She also doesn't have much intrest in her kong. If she can't get the treat out right away, she's done with it. (Short attention span, apparently!)
Toys mentioned are all good. Hershey Kisses, also 5 months, loves squeaky toys. Her current favorite is a 'stuffed Milk Bone' about a foot long and a really good squeaker in it. It does get annoying if you are trying to talk, read, watch Tv, or sleep. My wife picked it up at Walgreen's of all places.

Jacey is almost 5 months and LOVES Nylabones, her kong with a soft foods in it like mashed fruit, she has 2 balls that have bells in it.. One i got from walmart its yellow and has little nubby things on it and it has a bell in it. the other one I got from our feed store here and its smaller and smooth and has a bell it it and ALL of my dogs LOVE it.
I have noticed that if they dont show intrest in the toys and they are rubber-plastic type if I put them in their dog food bins for a week or 2 and then give them back they LOVE them!
I've actually found some great little toys at Walgreens. They always have an endcap loaded with $2.00 deals, and I just saw the milkbone toys you describe above there last night.Originally Posted by Endofile

For Misty, she likes to play with a knotted rope toy (it is indestructible), but her absolute favorite (ok, not a toy, but it DOES keep her occupied/chewing), is a COW HOOF! I buy those cow hooves at PetSmart for her, and she LOVES them. I bought them after all the folks here frowned on rawhide, and she loves them. They last quite awhile, too, though if she puts her mind to it, she can chew one down into just a small nub in a few days. : Still, thats about 100 times longer than most other toys we give her.
