    I'm looking for some ideas for my dog for a new dog toy.  I love kongs, nylabones, JW petco toys.  I have a lab shepard mix what does everyone have in mind?

      dogs favor those squeaky toys. And, full of color. If you have old sneakers, that will definitely make their day, knowing you gave him a shoe to chew. Just hide your other ones.

    I disagree. If you give your dog some of your shoes (even old ones), you're telling him/her that its okay for them to chew on your things.

    My two little yorkies' favorite toy seems to be my little grandson.  But next to him  the favorite toy always seems to be the one the other dog has.  They like squeaky toys, which really aren't good for them because the squeaker can become a choking hazard, but the dogs don't seem to care about that.  All they want to do is rip the toy apart so they can get at that squeaker.  Once the toy has been properly torn to bits and the squeaker completely destroyed, they lose interest.

    My cat is my dogs' favorite toy. lol smile  When they are not terrorizing him though they usually play with Kong toys.  They are the only kind that they don't shred and destroy in minutes.

    There is one “toy” that every male dog should have…

    Edit: The vet can teach him how to use it.

    Yes squeaker toys are my dogs favorite to.  They seem to have a way to destroy each toy.  They rip the head and limbs off everything.  Thanks for the comments and ideas keep them coming.  Also my dog loves my rabbit coral they cuddle together when he's not chasing her.

    The one thing I've learned over the course of my life working with hundreds of dogs is that it's a very individual thing, and each dog will form their own preferences. Of my own dogs, a few examples...

    My Redbone cross would play with rope toys. Nothing else. If I even tried to give him another toy, he'd give me a look of disgust and never touch it.

    Pitbull/Walker Coonhound cross loved plush toys with squeakers...or, rather, she like to tear out the squeaker and carry it around in her mouth so she could squeak at will. She never chewed the squeaker, and never played with the plush toy once she'd gotten her prize squeaker from it. Occasionally she would use the de-squeakered toy as a pillow.

    Miniature Schnauzer/Miniature Pinscher favors any brightly-colored toys, especially ones that flop around. Her favorites include a long cloth lizard, a fuzzy stuffed rhino, and a floppy fuzzy red puppy. However, she's not picky...she also has a rubber cupcake, a red chew bone, a chewie made out of a piece of tire, a chicken nylabone, and many more.

    Newfoundland loves very large frisbees, rope toys akin to tow ropes, and even pieces of 2x4s...if he can fetch it, he'll play with it. He's also particularly fond of a ring of plastic keys that were given to him as a puppy present, but he just carries them around every now and then and makes sure no one touches them.

    Akita/Rottweiler loved a ring made of tennis ball material, a plush bug that didn't have any stuffing anymore, pig ears (as long as someone would wrestle with him first, it's no good to just hand them over),  and his toothbrush. Throughout his entire life he'd never accept any other toys.

    In short...I've found that it doesn't really matter which toys I like, the only opinion that matters is a canine one. If you have a pet store nearby that allows you to bring pets in to pick their own goodies, use it, it can save a heck of a lot of hassle.

    My dog never kept a dog toy long as she found a way to destroy all of them.

    Any kind of rope toy was the best though because they were quiet.
    I get annoyed at all the bells and squeaky stuff after awhile.

    but she loved them so we let her have them periodically.
