Top 10 Dog Plush Toys - Our Favourite Soft Toys For Dogs


Top 10 Dog Plush Toys - Our Favourite Soft Toys For Dogs

Last week we started a new series of blog posts talking about different categories of dog toy and our favourite toys within those categories. Last week we talked about squeaky toys, but this week we thought we’d look at soft plush toys for dogs. There are a plethora of plush toys out there that offer different play options. We like soft toys as they give your pup something to have fun with when they’re feeling excitable, but also something to cuddle at nap time when playing has worn them out. There are soft toys for dogs in all shapes and sizes to suit all kinds of dogs from puppies to senior dogs.


Our favourite Plush Toys for Dogs

KONG Patches Cordz Kangaroo - How adorable is this Kangaroo shaped dog toy? It’s made of a number of different fabrics each with a different texture.  Your dog will enjoy exploring the various textures and the floppy arms and legs. There’s even a large squeaker inside for added playtime fun. It’s ideal for cuddling up to or for gentle games of indoor fetch.

It is made of luxury tweed so will look stylish in your dog’s bed or crate and will offer a soft cushioned cuddle at bedtime.

Available in two sizes - the larger one being perfect for Labradors and large sized breeds.
