Most dogs love nothing more than playing around in the yard. It’s a way for them to burn off excess energy, relieve boredom and satisfy their natural instincts for play. If you own an especially playful breed of dog such as a Labrador, Bearded Collie, Beagle or Dalmatian, he’ll appreciate any toys you give him that will make his playtime more enjoyable.

- Tastes like food
- Soft and chewable
- Makes some type of noise
