    Default What are your cavalier's favourite toys?

    I thought a list would give people some ideas of toys to buy and try (or things that you can find around the home).

    Here is what Jaspar and Leo especially like:

    Things around the home:

    1) toilet roll and paper towel roll cores -- they love chasing and eventially shredding the cardboard cores. I have been known to sneak them from the Ladies at work, too -- they have the industrial-strength cores and the dogs really like those as chew toys! Milk cartons (cleaned!) and egg crates are also appreciated.

    2) plastic soda bottles. Large or small (small are nice for puppies too). They love chasing these and carrying them by the neck. They skid all around the floor too for extra fun.

    Things purchased:

    1) almost any squeaky toy

    2) soft toys they can shred. When I had only Jaspar, a stuffed toy would last ages and he liked ones with squeakers or other noises inside. Now he and Leo play tug of war with all stuffed toys so they don;t last long but they both are delighted with de-stuffing the things eventuall (very messy but a quick clean up). I buy soft toys at charity shops for them as they don;t last long. Supervise and also cut off any hard plastic eyes or noses etc that could be swallowed.

    3) mini tennis balls. Also sometimes sold as cat balls. Petedge.com has them, very cheap, if you are in the US! The perfect cavalier sized ball and they are obsessed with these (but the go under furniture easily and then they will bark til you fecth it out for them).

    4) balls or other objects on ropes, that can be thrown and fetched.

    My two are into the same things as yours Karlin.

    They love empty bottles.

    Bonnie has a thing for flower pots and, as you may have noticed last night, there are no potted plants in our house for this reason! she'll pick them up and shake everything out.

    Keith bought them a wind up hamster in a ball that knocks off everything and they chase this for ages.

    They have a bouncy ball that lights up and, long after we've gone to bed, you can sometimes hear them jumping round the sitting room in the dark after this flashing ball!

    Toilet paper cores! My Patches LOVED those, he would go in the bathroom & look at the roll to see if it looked empty. And if someone made the mistake of throwing one away instead of giving it to him he would knock over the trash can to get it out. He would chase & kick that thing around for hours! so funny!

    Geez, I may just have to try empty plastic bottles and toliet paper rolls for Abbey , sounds like a party favorite!

    Her favorites are any plush, squeeky toy. She goes nuts for them!
    Her Kong and Twist-a-Treat stuffed with veggies are her favorite treat toys.
    Her best toy has to be the small, furry mice that we buy for the cats. We find thier scalped, eye-less bodies everywhere! We finally busted her during an incident, and when she jumped off the couch, two more hairless, eye-less bodies fell out from under the pillow she was on!! Apparently she's into hoarding as well.

    Our dogs favorite is between the liner from a cereal box (with a few crumbs left) and an octopus plush toy. You have to be careful to watch them all the time with the liner because it is potentially a suffocation hazard. With the octopus toy we have had as many as 5 dogs at one time pulling in opposite directions on the tentacles.

    Maxx loves loo roll inners too - must be a Cavalier thing LOL

    His all time favourite 'baby' though is a plush rottweiler puppy that he got in the post from my Mum about 4 years ago. The smelly thing has had both eyes & its nose chewed off & sewn back up again and now has only got three legs!

    He even has to take it in the car with him when we go out He rather likes a large soft velvety plush rabbit and a black and white panda that came from Ikea - he stole both of these from the kids so being 'loot' they're obviously better than anything.

    Maxx won't have anything that squeaks so we have to remove any squeakers and actually has 3 spare bags of toys in the garage as well as his toy box in the lounge - how spoilt is that eh?

    This was the funniest thing to read .... yes I think all cavaliers LOVE the toilet roll .... then I'm sure that's applicable for all dogs ...

    Gizmo loves the plastic bottles.. he runs with them hanging from the side of his mouth so it looks like a giant cigar !!!

    And of course it's almost the size of him so that adds to the "look" !!

    Ours like similar things too - although Rupert's favourites are any that dispense FOOD!! Eg a buster cube

    Teddy loves cuddlies, he carries them about. He also loves fleece tug toys {I got mine from http://petcraftproject.proboards24.c...gi?board=sales although there aren't any listed at the moment}



    Teddy also eats tissues LOL
