As you know we have a large dog: a Newfoundland named Freya. Freya does not have many toys and we have not spent a lot of money on them. Her most recent toy is a chuck-it. For those not familiar with this toy, its especially great if bending over is difficult if you say have a bad back or are pregnant and if you cant really throw that far. The chuck-it has a large plastic arm with a little scoop at the end that a ball fits into. This toy tends to sell for about $10-$15 at a pet store but someone told me they found them in the discount section of the grocery store. Sure enough I found one there for $2 and it works really well! So while we do try and support our local pet store, some things are just better to buy somewhere else.

My dog seems to enjoy the large ropes that are tied at each end. Once she finishes the one she’s got, i’m going to try to “make” one myself.
The dollar store has a lot of great dog toys for $1. With three big dogs, we tend to go through them pretty quickly!
I have such a hard time finding inexpensive toys for my dog, as she goes through them so quick – unless they are hard rubber, they last a few days at best.
A dog will play with just about anything, even a group of old socks sowed together. You can find lots of cheap toys at the 99 cents store too.
Dog toys can become really expensive. For a while I had the hardest time finding the perfect toys for my dog. Either he wasn’t interested or he would destroy them in a day. I got fed up and started doing my own research and came across dog toys . If anyone else is experiencing what I went through should check them out. Prices are great as well.
