Toys - size, recommendations, ideas

Post by Nifty staffy on Sun Nov 05 2017, 13:10

Nifty only seems to like plush/cuddly toys which she’ll chew on but not yet destructed.
Anything rubber dies very quickly or gets ignored.
I like the trixie denta fun rubber toys but she’ll chew the ends off in no time Sad
Not interested in the black kong range.

I’m going to try the boomer ball and jumbler but what sizes do you buy for your staffies ?
I was thinking 20cm boomer and M/L jumbler ?
Any other recommendations for outdoor compatible toys ? Plush are not fun when they get wet ...

We have the M/L Jumbler and the huge boomer ball, but I think a smaller boomer ball would be just as popular.

Have you tried rope toys? They're a huge favourite here and they take lots of ripping.

I have a few cotton rope toys here but she always picks at the same place and ends up fraying that spot, pulling on the fibers. But to be fair, I have had them a while.

Will add a couple to her basket.
Thanks for the ideas and size guide Big Grin

Gus has the medium size boomer that he absolutely loves. Rope toys are another favourite here as well.

Another vote for rope toys.
I presume you all give the cotton rope toys ?

Definitely rope toys!

I've even given Chase a pair of my old leggings that were ripped. I knotted the legs together so he can get a good chew but all he does is sleep and snuggle with them.

Definitely the boomer ball - Leah loves hers but her favourite is a big thick rope toy to play tug with.

How could I have forgotten babble ball? Although I wouldn't have it outside getting wet as the batteries might rust. And babble ball human voices, not animal noises.

Is the babble ball as annoying as a squeak toy that just won’t die ? Blushing

Received a kong knots toy, Nifty loves it.
Boomer ball and jumbler and more rope toys should be arriving shortly

Oh no. Babble ball is infinitely more annoying than a mere squeaky toy!

(I now have Chaos squeaking because he heard babble ball!!!)

Squeak toys die 1st here, babble keeps on going as does boomer! Rope toys get destroyed & sometimes consumed which is not fun for me removing it from the other end Rolling Eyes

I'm intrigued by this babble ball, I've never heard of one before!

Chase will have to wait and see what Santa is bringing him!

Oh you spoil sport, you!!! I will confess they only get it in small doses, it can get just a little wearing after a while!

Why do I get the impression that you’re playing it down with “little wearing” “after a while”
Maybe for xmas then
Also saw the wobble wag giggle ball ... same family me thinks

However, avoid giving the boomer ball in the house on tiled floors Surprised
