Best Dog Toys & Gifts for Big Dogs

Updated on December 3, 2014

Gift ideas for Dog Lovers and Dogs

Find The Best Dog Toys for large Dogs and great gift ideas for Dog Lovers with this selection of our favourites. As owner to 3 large Dogs, a Mastiff, a french mastiff and a bulldog, we have tried and tested every Tough Dog Toy especially ones for Aggressive Chewers. And on this page are the Best Dog Toys we have found that our dogs love, have fun with and more importantly LAST.

Tested by Big Dogs written by Mum.

We are owners of a Bullmastiff a Dogue de Bordeaux. And a British Bulldog puppy

We have bought many toys over the years, because our dogs are aggressive chewers, and I have found these products to be the best and last the longest.

The Bull breed are known for their excessive chewing, so re-directing this away from your furniture, shoes, handbags, is work itself. But with the help of these fun and useful toys, they will be kept happy for hours.

BEST Dog Toys for Agressive Chewers

We personally love the Kong Range for Dogs and have had various Kong toys, not because they wear out, but just to give them variety.

We have had this Kong Toy since our Bull Mastiff was a puppy, and she still loves it. Roxy was a really aggressive chewer, chewed everything, my dining room table, chairs, fireplace, you name it it got chewed, It stopped once we bought her this. We fill up the inside of the Kong with meat paste,pop it into the freezer fro about 1/2 hour. She has hours of fun, trying to lick it all out, chasing it around.

New Puppy Alert Puppies LOVE to Chew - And he LOVES the Kong too

Welcome to our new Douge de Bourdeaux puppy, which has filled the gap left by our Bullmastiff after she passed away. As you see he is Loving the Kong too.

If left unattened our puppy will eat and chew anythign within reach! the Kong allows us to have some quiet time, as he tires himself out trying to get the treats inside it

really is The Best Dog Toy I have ever bought my 3 large breed dogs. 5 years later they still love it and its still in one piece. An amazing accomplishment, since our dogs have gone through countless shoes, boots, beds, doors, clematis plants, rhododendrons, a few fruit trees, and several vegetable patches... In Name it they have tried it.

What kind of dogs do I have? I hear you nervously ask.

I have 2 Douge De Bordeaux and a bulldog. The Kong was originally bought for our old bull Mastiff, who we sadly lost, but I can assure you The Kong Dog toy IS undoubtedly THE best toy you could possibly buy for your dog.

Still not convinced. We pack the Toy full of little treats and mix in some meat paste. Pop it in the freezer and when we are going out for the day the dogs all get their treat, which keeps them busy and not even notice we have gone out.

Especially great, as one of our dogs Molly the Bordeaux suffers separation anxiety from me. And keeping her busy is essential so as not to have her stressed when I leave the house.

This simple yet effective dog toy ticks all the boxes for me as a dog owner and needing extremely tough toys. The shape and way in which it bounces in such an unpredictable manner causes endless hours of entertainment for the dog and owners alike, when playing fetch.

The hollow inside is great for packing their favorite treats into, but secure to keep the treats difficult to reach (but not impossible). More importantly it is not messy at all and the Kong is dishwasher safe for easy cleaning.

The dogs have endless hours of fun, and we never tire of watching how clever they are getting into the treats.

The Kong comes in all sizes for all dogs 5 sizes, Small, medium, large, x-Large, and XX-large

Best Softee Toy for your Dog - The JML Crazy Critter

What all dog lovers have been waiting for, if like me you are fed up clearing away the stuffing from your dogs soft toys, then this is the answer. We have had our Crazy Critters- Dog Toy for over 3 years, and they love playing tug with it, or Little Belle just carries it around with her.

Crazy Critters Stuffing Free Dog Toy are strong, durable and realistic looking, They are machine washable so you can use them indoors or outside, over and over again. making them easy for ANY SIZE DOG to play with. We actually tied a long piece of string to the end of a stick and our dogs spend hours chasing it.


The original and best, I love the Chuck it Ball Thrower, why...well no more gooey slobbery balls to pick up! this is our Bordeaux favorite, toy, she loves it, This must come on our walk, and she just loves to chase it and fetch it back, great just now as our Bull mastiff can't walk too far, so as she wanders around the park, The Dogue still gets rid of plenty of energy.

      The Kong was my Goldies fave chew toy and would carry it around everywhere. We always had to remember to pack it when going anywhere! Great for carrying, stuffing with treats and putting plain yogurt in then freezing -a particular fave of his- kept him busy for ages!

      Wonderful selection of toys and gifts for dogs here:)
