Best Pet Toys for Christmas

Whether you choose to shop on Black Friday, Cyber Monday, or any of the handful of shopping days left before Christmas, there’s so much choice when it comes to the best pet toys. So we thought we’d give you a helping hand by showing you some of the fun boredom-busting pet toys on Amazon, liked by our team.

If your budget is tight or there are stock shortages around Christmas, you can always have fun making your own pet toys – links below!

DOGS need mental stimulation as well as physical exercise to keep them happy and healthy. When it comes to dog toys, remember to think about the safety aspect for your individual dog – are they a serious chewer, is the toy too small for your dog, could they swallow small parts…some toys are made with a hole in the centre so that if they do accidentally get swallowed, air can still get through whilst you get your dog to the vets.
