Anything That Bounces!
Dogs love a good chase, especially one that leads them all over the backyard while they attempt to catch what they are actually chasing. One toy that will provide endless hours of entertainment for both you and your dog is a tennis ball. That's right, a plain old tennis ball. Your dog will go absolutely nuts trying to chase this thing down and catch it, only to bring it right back to you so you can throw it again. Another great bouncing toy that you can have is anything rubber, like the Kong toys. These types of toys can be thrown far, and have a lot of action when they hit the ground which will drive your dog nuts!
One other thing is for certain and that is that dogs love to play tug of war. Grab your favorite rope toy and you and your best fury friend can have a tugging contest that will seem to last for hours until you finally give in and let go. Your dog will run off thrashing, twisting, and tossing the rope toy for a bit and then will come right back to tempt you into grabbing a hold once more to start the tugging war all over again.
There are many dog breeds that absolutely love the water, so you'll want to get yourself some water toys that your dog will be able to swim after and bring back to you. This is another opportunity to use the tennis ball, other wise you can get some true water dog toys that you can throw out into the water for him.
