Default Favorite retreiving toy?

What is your dogs favorite toy to retreive? When I get my puppy, I want to play fetch with it. I adore playing fetch!! I am not a fan of tennis balls, and want to stay away from them. I see all these cool toys out though. I like orbee balls, the orbee balls on ropes, ruffwear toys, and kong toys. Those are My preference as Riley doesnt like to play fetch. I enjoy using those to play with dogs who do though!

We love balls here but in wubbas work wonderfully as well. Chuck-it balls (all types) are in constant stock here.

The Cuz ball!
It might be the OMG SO LOUD squeak or the little feet and the way it erratically bounces when you throw it.. but whatever it is, never met a dog that didn't love it lol

Dekka's fave thing is a stick. Other than that a non squeaky toy.

Thats not quite true, but she doesn't want to retrieve a squeaking toy, she wants to perform a squeakerectomy.

Kong Wubba all the way.

Can tug, can toss, floats, is bright, squeaks (but not easily), fun for the dog to flip around, big enough to see, good on land or water and Traveler can hold onto and close his mouth more allowing way less choking and inhalation of water like that happens with tennis balls.

Also- "WHEN" you get your puppy? Is this in the works?

Caleb prefers soft/canvas bumpers, especially his hard Core firehose one.

For water retrieving the dogs prefer a wubba (Aeri) or a chuckit bumper (Kestrel).

For dry land retrieving, both Kes and Aeri like Chuckit balls, though Kes prefers the whistle ones a bit. We also use Hero brand SuperHero discs for frisbee.

Harleigh prefers tennis balls for all kinds of retrieving - her favorites are Kong Squeaker and ChuckIt, always the mega size!

She also like her Bumi and I really need to get her a Wubba because I think she'd enjoy that as well.

To Dance, there is nothing better than a tennis ball. I know they're not recommended, and I don't play with them often, but there really is nothing she loves more. Wubbas are a huge hit here as well. So are those Chuck-It bumper toys, and the Chuck-It flying squirrel is fun too. I use regular orange Chuck-It balls often as well.

Morgan isn't a reliable dog to ask this question. LOL! His preferences vary by the week.

This week's favorite is his broken fleece turkey. Last week was a knotted rope. Lol!
