Kong Dog Toy
Advantages: Loved by dogs, lasts ages, cheap.
Dog toys can fall short in a number of ways - some look great to the owner, but the dogs just don't care (my in-laws bought a dog intelligence test that fell neatly into this box, roundly ignored by the dog after a ten second's mildly curious sniffing). Some others fall apart within minutes, torn to pieces by the merciless gnashers of said dog. Others look great, work great, but quickly get left out in the garden and become covered in mud.
The Kong, an absolutely classic toy, avoids all these pitfalls. Dogs love them - they're great to chase, bouncing around erratically like a rugby ball, they can have treats hdiden in them, and they're a lot of fun to chew, apparently. This covers the second category as well - for dogs who love to chew everything and anything, this gives them something that's absolutely fine to chew into pieces. Except they won't damage them at all - after years, ours was scratched and had a few shallow teeth-marks, but the rubber was all still intact, meaning you don't get bits of the toy scattered across the house in minutes.
Finally, it's also wipe-clean, and can be scrubbed free of mud and saliva in seconds. The rubber is tough and easy to keep hygenic - perfect for a keen dog! For around a fiver, this is a toy that'll last your pet for ages - it's a great buy.
Summary: The full-size classic.
