What Are The Best Toys For Bulldogs?

Bulldogs have three great loves: toys, food, and their humans. We can’t force you to stay home with your pup all day, but we can lend a paw in the toy department. The best toys for Bulldogs are those that satisfy their innate desires to chew, tug, and snuggle.

As for the foodies, BARK has a large selection of delicious treats – including wheat, corn and soy-free options for sensitive pups.

Tug Toys

Tug of War is the perfect game for Bulldogs. Not only do they get to utilize their powerful jaws, their stout, muscular bodies make them really good at it!

With their heavy build and short muzzles, Bullies tire quickly and are prone to respiratory distress. Tug Toys are among the best toys for Bulldogs because they utilize their strengths, but do not require too much physical exertion.

Plush Toys

Bulldogs are basically bullet-shaped cuddle bugs. If there isn’t a human body available, they’ll happily spoon a Plushie instead. Sure, they enjoy a short game of indoor fetch from time to time, but for most Bulldogs, it’s all about the nuzzles.

If your Bully tends to get a little rough with his lovin’, choose a plush toy with a surprise inside. If/when the outer shell tears, your pooch will find a Spiky Ball bonus toy!

Puzzle Toys

BARK puzzle toys offer mental and physical stimulation to stave off boredom until your pooch is back in your loving arms again. They are some of the best toys for Bulldogs because they distract them when you are busy or out of the home while also indulging their love of treats.

For your Bulldog’s purposes, thinker toys are basically treat vending machines. Each toy consists of nooks, crannies, levers and switches. When filled with delicious snacks, they entice your pooch to paw, bite and lick the moving pieces to uncover their rewards.

Super Chewer Toys

Bulldogs have short-but-mighty jaws custom made for gnawing. Without the right chew toys, they can whittle your favorite chair down to kindling in no time.

BARK created their line of Super Chewer Toys with these pups in mind. Made from durable natural rubber or nylon, they are designed to withstand even the most powerful chewers.

If you really want to blow your Bully’s mind, try a flavored Benebone Pawplexer. These nylon chew bones come in bacon, peanut butter or chicken flavor, and can hold a jerky or bully stick. The result is a flavor explosion your treat hound will adore.
