In a recent observational study of Golden Retrievers, it appears their very favorite toy is the human being! They play for hours with humans, and drag them around every continent on the planet, not to mention training them to expeditiously deliver their favorite treats! Aside from their play-toy, the human being, there are some great toys on the market for our furry friends. The Kong Cozie Dog Squeaky toy is another big hit. The Outward Hound Hide a Squirrel Plush Dog Squeaky Toy is another very popular toy for your Retriever. Of course, with a name like “Retriever,” we have to talk about Chuck It!! These are akin to tennis balls that are made from durable, high bounce rubber. Benebone also makes a bacon-flavored dog bone, which the human friends of the Golden Retriever will likely enjoy as well! Finally, the ever popular IQ dog treat ball will make them smarter and happier!
The Kong Cozy Dog Squeaky Toy is a big hit. There have been thousands of reviews on this dog-favorite toy. This was designed with owners as well as dogs in mind.

This comes in several characters as well as colors, and can be purchased at major pet stores, or online at a host of places. This is also modestly priced, at anywhere from $4.90-$7.00, so you can stock up on this one that will keep your Retriever busy for hours.

The thought of a human being on the floor wrestling with their dog over a bacon-flavored bone is a bit embarrassing, but this just might happen if you get your dog a Benebone bacon-flavored bone toy! This is made in a durable wishbone design, making it very easy to grab and bite. It is also made in the United States by a company that supports canine welfare. It is such a popular toy, and priced at roughly $12.00, you can feel comfortable buying it as this company stands by supporting the welfare of dogs, so you r money will be well-spent, not to mention your dog will be wildly happy!
ChuckIt! is a very popular ball for dogs, and they are manufactured in several sizes from small to XXL. This ball is orange and blue, and it is made from a natural high-bounce rubber source. The rubber nature of it makes it great for pools and ponds, and the color makes it easy to keep track of if you let your Golden Retriever have some fun in the ocean. Of course, that rubber nature may have leave your dog forlorn on shore watching their ball float away, alas this is why you should always buy extras! These can be purchased online and at major retailers coast-to-coast, and they cost around $7.00 for a 2-pack.
The IQ Treat Ball is fun for the whole family! There might not be a person in this hemisphere that is not completely entertained watching their dog try to wrestle a treat out of these balls. The important issue with this ball is that it also teaches them to figure out how to get the treats out. As they become better at it, you can increase the level of difficulty. It is a fun way to reward your dog, and thousands of dog owners agree this is a great toy. This is priced around $10.00 and is available at most pet store chains, and from a number of retailers online.
Even though humans have 32 less chromosomes than dogs, and perhaps maybe that ethereal deity anagram based on the letters used to spell dog are filling their heads with superciliousness, but in the end, we make great, great friends, and we will likely always be their favorite toy!
