What are the best types of toys to buy for a Rottweiler puppies.
We will be getting a 12 week old rottie puppy in the spring and I would like to know what are the best types of toys to buy for him.
Rottweilers are big and strong even as puppies, so you definitely want sturdy toys that can’t be ripped up easily. Avoid cheap, store brand toys.
All puppies like to chew, and Rotties are no exception. So toys that can stand up to their powerful jaws are vital.
Kong toys are high on my list and always popular in our house, also the chew toys made from Zogoflex, Nylabone ‘Dura-chews’, and natural bones are all excellent choices. Rope toys and ultra-sturdy stuffed toys can be okay for Rottie pups, but many adults will be able to destroy them given time.
I’d strongly recommend that you check out my Tough Dog Toys page as it has lots of information on the very best toys for power chewers and a selection of the ones I personally recommend.
Hope this helps, best of luck with your new puppy.
