It’s common knowledge that dog toys are good for dogs. Even though they can be expensive, a well-made toy can provide an enjoyable way for your pet to release energy, entertain itself, and remain healthy.

But while you may know that dog toys are useful, you may not know what kinds of dog toys are useful for specific purposes.

Does food have to be involved to make a toy a good dog toy? Or is it fine if you leave the treats at home?

Should you look for different dog toys for indoor and outdoor play? And what exactly is the difference between ball launchers and balls that squeak?

To answer these and other common questions, we’ve put together a list of the best interactive dog toys on the market today. Each of the interactive dog toys we reviewed is one we’ve either reviewed, tested ourselves, or chosen based on the insights we’ve learned from our interviews with veterinarians, shelter workers, and study results.
