Rottweilers are a beloved breed and family dog. Known for their strength and smarts, simple toys lacking durability are definitely not the way to go for these guys.

Trying to hunt down the perfect toy can always be a bit of a challenge, but don’t worry – we’ve compiled a few tips to help you out.

The More Durable The Better

It’s no secret that Rottweilers love to chew. Finding long-lasting toys and chews are definitely one of the most important things to keep them occupied and help exert some energy. Super Chewer toys are the perfect fit to really get that tail waggin’.

Peanut Butter Pawplexer

A pack favorite is the “Benebone PawPlexer,” which comes in Bacon and Peanut Butter flavors. Not only does it feature the super durable Benebone Nylon chew, it also comes with a chew/treat-holding center that can make things a bit more interesting.

Who Doesn’t Love A Game Of Tug O’ War?

A good game of tug of war is enough to keep your pup occupied, while also providing some excellent bonding time. Toys like the “Shuck n’ Chuck Corn Cob” or the “Venus Fly Tug” are two awesome play options for your pack.

While your tugging arm rests, pop some treats in these toys for a little puzzle for your Rottie and see how long it takes them to extract and eat!

A Fetchin’ Good Time

Rottweilers, like all dogs, benefit enormously from exercise, which is why a fetch can be a great way to expend some energy.

Of course, classic tennis balls can provide hours of play, but for something a little more exciting (read: not quiet), try the “Best Balls Ever.” Not only do they provide the perfect game of fetch for your Rottweiler, but they also squeak.

Smart Toys For A Smart Dog

Rottweilers are very smart dogs. They consistently rank in the top ten of the most intelligent breeds. That being the case, give them a challenge to help stimulate their brain!

BARK has plenty of Thinker/Puzzle Toy options – all you have to do is hide the treats inside the toys and watch your Rottie go to work. If you’re looking for a more difficult Puzzle Toy, try the “Dog Casino Puzzle.” If you’re looking for something a tad bit easier, check out the “Dog Smart Puzzle.”
