SitStay Blog Top Toys: Staff Picks
Team SitStay fields a lot of questions about toys - favorites, toughest, squeakiest - you name it, we've heard it. After thorough testing, these are our top toy picks!

Jill’s Picks

What toys are tougher than a lawn mover? West Paw Tizzi and Planet Dog Orbee-Tuff Diamond Plated Balls. Yeah, that really happened! I’ve mowed over our dogs’ toys several times—and they’re still fully in tact. If you have a tough chewer, these just might do the trick! If your dog is tougher on a West Paw Zogoflex or Planet Dog Orbee-Tuff toy than a lawn mower, then we’ll send a one-time replacement.

Planet Dog Snoop is great because it bounces around in a funny way, holds treats (or peanut butter) to keep my dogs, Fenway and Cameron, engaged for a long time, and is strong enough to withstand their chewing. We've had ours for 2 years and there are no chunks that they've taken out of it. Pro tip: to get more mileage out of this toy, you can even combine it with other toys like bones or the Tizzi to create a new challenge for your pup.

Hannah’s Picks

Able to survive the puppy years and still be kicking into adulthood? The West Paw Hurley has survived being alone in a kennel with a puppy with no knicks or damage. It's pretty impressive.

It's really cute to see how invested our Border Collie, Dante, is when trying to get all of the treats out of the Orbee-Tuff Mazee Ball. It also keeps him entertained which is great for an active dog that likes having a job to do.

The Tug-n-Toss is one of our absolute favorites because despite many months of hard chewing the ball has not deflated! The handle has seen better days but our Border Collie is still content to carry it around the house.

Stacy's Picks

The Cozie Ali Aligator by Kong are super soft plushie toys that won my heart instantly! They come in 3 different sizes and simply adorable!

The West Paw Li'L Boogey is for small dogs but it makes it up being small with his huge cuteness. Li'l Boogey dog toy is so cute it's a li'l scary. They come in black and pink.

I mustache you a question! The entire line of Moody Pet toys make me giggle! Every dog should have the opportunity to have some giant lips!
