Default What's in your toy box?

I thought it'd be interesting to see what everyone keeps out for their dogs, if anything, and how they store it! I know there was an organization thread, but it'd be neat just to see what toys everyone has... I'm kind of a toy junky so I'm always looking for new, neat, durable toys for the boys. They just got this new basket a few weeks ago.

Share pictures and such!

Luckily, my dogs don't guard toys so they have this slew out all the time to play/chew on. Some random ropes, a safestix, kong squeaker balls of various sizes and shapes, rubber toys, a few nylabones, atom ball, ruffwear squash, JW squeaker ball and cuz's, frisbee, fluffy random carcasses, jolly ball-ish thing, etc.

Then they have the "good" toy box that they don't have unlimited access to. This has the stuff that they use for training/drive/engagement and only get when we're playing together. Chuck it, ultra balls, ball holder, tug on a rope, jute tug, three different frisbees, dumbell, bumper, birch q tips, a wubba, orbee on a rope, raquetball, good cuz, and zanie stuffy. Oh, and a target lid. XD

Cool topic! I dont have any pics of them all in one nice spot like that, because the dogs pretty much leave them wherever and I refuse to pick up after them XD

we have a zillion big fat knotted ropes, from 6" to 5'. Kitty LOVES jack shaped toys so we have 10 or so stuffed or rope jacks (like the zanies with squeekers). Tori loves balls so i have somehow accumulated close to 50 tennis balls, and they are everywhere like it rained. When shes really wound up she runs from ball to ball, picking one up and then dropping it for the next one, and because theres literally almost 50 balls, it takes a long time. Its cute. I ought to get video or pictures of it. We have 1 lone 18" Boomer Ball for outside, and as soon as I get a decent recall on the Monkey, im gonna dust off the chuckit for long distance play

Im not very imaginative with my toys. I find a style that the dogs like, and buy a bajillion of them.

Before it reaches the farthest star"

They're all kept behind one of the couches, under the clock, under the cage, or behind the television.

Oh, ferrets

I really have no idea what there is we used to have a toy box and it was all neat and tidy. Though, I guess now that we're dogless for the time being, it doesn't really matter. There are tennis balls... stuffies... ropes...

but yah, they're all out all the time.

LOL .... too much? is that an answer?

I don't think I have any non-cellphone photos (off FB, sorry about the size) but my toy bucket lives above Shamoos crate now. It was a meager attempt to prevent Sloan from dragging every toy we have into the middle of the living room.

Needless to say she bested me, again.

We have since banned any balls small enough to fit under the couch. Those stay in a drawer. All good toys stay in the car or above the washer/dryer. Arnold will tear up toys if I don't catch him so anything left out I have to not care about much.

I get razzed by people that the abundance of toys will hinder my dogs toy drive, my sanity and skin safety is far more important. LOL

Ooooh a little of everything... lol

Regular kongs, puppy congs, a stuffing free toy, a plethora of treat dispensing rubber toys, rope toys, bones, disemboweld/eyeless stuffed animals, noisy human baby toys that we don't need anymore, tennis balls, rubber balls, two frisbees (one cloth, one rubber)...

There are probably more toys in there I just can't remember right now.

Amatures, all of you! This is the inside toys. I've actually divided them up since this picture was taken. They are now in 2 hampers that size. Outside toys are in a small basket right next to the door on the back porch.

We have the same kind of bucket as above, and it is to the top, with all sorts!

They hardly play with them at the moment though, because......

Bodhi thinks all the toys are hers, and she must take time to destroy them all. Then keep the smelly, rotten bits forever. And if they cant be destroyed, she will constantly bug you to throw something for her, and generally obsess. Throw it, throw it, throw it.

Fred looooves to lollop with toys in his mouth (banned at the moment) so he's no allowed them.

He is great with soft toys, but constantly (constantly) shoves them AT you because he LOVES to tug (banned at the moment). He mouths them till they're smelly, then runs at you and pokes them into you till you grab it, then he tries to tug it back. And if we don't play, he gets demanding and paws you. Or starts on Bodhi. Who will oblige him (banned at the moment).

Bodhi also loves soft toys. De-stuffing them. So she doesn't get them unsupervised. Once they are de-stuffed, it's ok, but see above re Fred and it being banned for now.

So we have a bucket of toys and they don't play with them!!

I love letting them pick toys out of it though when they are allowed. They mull it over like kids and are always so proud of their picks!
"Dogs are our link to paradise. They do not know jealousy or discontent. To sit with a dog on a hillside on a glorious afternoon is to be back in Eden, where doing nothing wasn't boring, it was peace."

Bodhi is the opposite of ignorance, the insight into reality which destroys mental afflictions and brings peace.

Here's a small selection. Some toys are kept put up unless being used or they'll be destroyed. We have a ton of antlers hidden somewhere in the house. A lot of different balls and various chew things. Pirate is funny because he'll dig and dig until he finds exactly what he wants. Then I'll have all kinds of toys just sitting around the floor.
