The Kong Wubba is a favorite game for most dogs, partly because it's interactive, and simply because it's fun. The durable reinforced nylon fabric covers two balls a tennis ball on top and a squeaker ball beneath. The long tail makes it easy to pick up and throw.

Dogs will get some exercise as they try to pry open the JW Treat Pods that are filled with either dog treats or peanut butter. They are simple to assemble and easy to clean.

A little noise can be fine, especially when it's wrapped inside an adorable soft Leaping Dog Cuddle Toy from Up Country. The squeaker and crackle are inside this dog toy that's made in the USA.
Pounce and Play
Cats like to hunt, and the Hartz Angry Birds Running Bird toy stimulates his predatory instinct. Filled with catnip, this yellow bird runs away from your cat when you pull the Bird's tail.
