Dog Toys to Keep Your Dog’s Winter Blues Away

Not every pup enjoys plunging temperatures, which can really cut into their recreational time. Whether it's you or your dog who hates being outside when the air gets frosty, your dog needs playtime.

Dogs like to play in different ways. There are four primary play patterns. Some dogs may have one favorite way of playing, others alternate among different types of play. The main play patterns are Toss & Retrieve, Tug, Comfort & Security, and Chew.

    • Toss & Retrieve Dog Toys - Of all the play patterns, toss & retrieve is the toughest to implement during the cold winter months when dogs (and their pet parents) are indoors more. Try to find a spacious area at home, and enjoy a game of fetch with the Hartz Dura Play® Ball or Rocket. These durable dog toys are made of natural latex on the outside, and a special foam filling on the inside, so they are light to bounce around. Fun, yet safe to play indoors!
