The Best American-Made Dog Toys

Updated on September 22, 2014

Fun, Durable, High-Quality Dog Toys Made Right Here in the U.S.A.!

Dog toys are everywhere: some are unique, some are interactive, some are tough but let's face it; the vast majority is cheap-o, mass produced junk imported straight from China. Dog owners looking for toys made right here in America may soon be disappointed to see that they're typically not sold in pet stores and that finding quality USA dog toys can be a big of a wild goose chase at times. But, don't fret, here's a list of the best (meaning fun, unique, long-lasting) dog toys made in the U.S.A. The companies behind these products pride themselves on giving fellow American dog owners top-quality and safe dog toys. Sure, they may cost a little more than those Chinese-factory-made, potentially-lead-paint-laden dog toys but their customers know it's definitely worth the extra price.


Tux dog toy

The West Paw Tux is one of the toughest chew toys out there. But the great thing about the Tux is that it's made in the USA out of a non-toxic, earth-friendly material called Zogoflex. The unique design of the Tux makes it fun and easy to chew but also difficult to destroy. And...there's an opening in the back where you can stuff in some tasty treats (or even a scoop of peanut butter) for your pooch to enjoy! Retail price: $16.95

The Jive dog toy is a simple enough ball made from the ultra-tough Zogoflex material but what makes the Jive really stand out is that it's a safe alternative to the tennis ball. As most dog owners know, tennis balls aren't safe for dogs to chew on. First, most ordinary tennis balls contain at least 18 different chemicals and second the nylon fuzz can actually wear down the enamel on a dog's teeth. The Jive ball on the other hand is 100% non toxic, safe and, since it's the same size as a standard tennis ball, can be used in any tennis ball launcher. The Jive comes in three different sizes: 2", 2.6" and 3.25" and prices start at $6.95

Kong - The Ultimate Tough Chew Toy

The Red Kong is the original and the Black Kong is the strongest Kong available - just when you thought the Kong couldn't get any tougher! Both types of Kong chew toys can be stuffed with peanut butter or treats for added yumminess. Each Kong comes in five different sizes and prices start at $6.95

Retail price: $12.95.
