This post may contain affiliate links or I may have received the product free in exchange for my honest review. See full disclosure for more information.

There is no doubt that we all love our furbabies! Some may say we even spoil them with toys and treats. That’s alright! However, did you know that toys also play an important role in your dog’s life? Dog toys stimulate them by encouraging active play. By encouraging them to run, romp, tug, play, and chew you are contributing to their overall health, along with their mental health. Chew toys also work double duty in providing not only a fun chew, but dental stimulation to keep their teeth and gums healthy. With all that said, Hartz Dog Toys are a staple in our home.

Hartz Dog Toys

Dogs have 4 primary play patterns – Toss & Retrieve, Tug, Comfort & Security, and Chew. Some dogs may only like one way of playing, while others love them all, or alternate among them. Whatever, your dog prefers, Hartz has you covered with a wonderful variety of dog toys for all size dogs. Before we see a few of their fun toys, let me introduce you to them.

For Dogs that like Toss and Retrieve Play!

Hartz Dura Play® Ball and the Hartz Tuff Stuff® Flyer™

Dogs that like to engage in Toss and Retrieve play enjoy the Hartz Dura Play Ball and the Hartz Tuff Stuff Flyer

Hartz Dura Play® Ball

Hartz Dura Play Ball

Feel the difference with Dura Play® natural latex dog toys. Each toy provides long lasting fun with a unique foam technology that enhances durability, creating an unmatched chew experience. The ball has an enticing bacon scent! Fun to throw and bounce, Dura Play® toys even float. It is soft and flexible to the touch and perfect for dogs of all ages, even senior dogs and teething puppies.

Brandi received the large size Hartz Dura Play ball and she couldn’t be happier. I had doubts about the soft feel as far as it holding up to her chewing. However, I shouldn’t have worried. She carries the ball EVERYWHERE – even to bed with her! Her brother loves it too, but she lets him know it is hers!

Hartz Tuff Stuff® Flyer™

Hartz Tuff Stuff Flyer

The Tuff Stuff Flyer is a great alternative to rigid plastic discs. Their durable, yet flexible, flyers travel long distances and are easy on your dog’s teeth. It is constructed of super-durable ballistic nylon and double stitched seams and can stand up to even the toughest chewers. Grips throughout the disc also make this a great tug toy, and the squeaker in the center will keep your dog interested during solo play. They even float.

None of the pups are Frisbee catchers, but that did not stop them from enjoying playing tug with the Tuff Stuff Flyer. They also like to just walk and carry it around with them.

For Dogs that like to Tug!

His other favorite toy is the Dura Play Tug of Fun! The ball’s tough latex shell and foam filling make for a desirable chew, while the sturdy rope running through the toy offers enjoyable hours of tugging and tossing. The Double Ring toy consists of a ball at the center and two rope loops that are easy to grasp on both ends of the toy. Owner and pet will enjoy a challenging game of tug! The toy is bacon-scented, too.

We skipped these toys because to be honest, these big lugs immediately tear into the plush toys and shred them.

Of course, Dogs love Lickable Treats!

    I am definitely going to send this to my niece..they have 2 dogs, one cat 2 rabbits and 3 birds….and she always buys them birthday and Christmas gifts

  2. My dog is back and forth with her toys. Some days she loves to play with them and other days she could care less about them. I have always liked hartz products.

  3. Robin Abrams says:

    These toys sound great for the dogs. It is hard to find toys for my puggle. She loves to tear them apart they do not last her long at all.

  4. Linda Manns Linneman says:

    My son buys these products all the time for his two labs. They love them. You can never go wrong with these. Thank you for sharing

  5. Deborah D says:

    My sister’s dog would love these toys.

  6. Michelle Teer says:

    The only thing I have found so far that my dog has not been able to destroy is her Kong. I don’t buy anything that has stuffing in it, because I’m tired of find it all over the house. I’ve resigned myself to buying unstuffed toys, knowing that they won’t last more than two days. She may be destructive but she still needs to play. You’d think I had a Mastiff, but no, just a beautiful one year old Goldendoodle. I’ll give Hartz a chance and see how they hold up to her.
