MinPin Toy Recommendations

I have 4 minpins and I was reading today that it's best to get toys that are more interactive than the average toy because they are such a curious breed.

Mine have LOTS of stuffed animals they play with but without fail they rip it open and unstuff it.

After I got tired of cleaning up fluff I started buying the pre-unstuffed toys.

What I am looking for now are some suggestions on interesting, thought provoking toys that people have found or have that are more interactive than your average Kong or stuffed animal.

For the kongs you can put peanut butter on the end and freeze it and it will take longer for them to get their treat!

I have heard of this toy before called a tug-a-jug where you fill it with a few treats and then they have to move it around for the treats to come out. I bet that would keep them busy for awhile.

I have also seen frozen toys where half of the rubber toy is just ice, although I can't remember the name of that one. I saw it at a Wal-Mart though.

Also you can put cut up hot dogs and green beans in an ice tray in broth or water and freeze for yummy, stimulating treats.

Here is a website too for stimulation toys.

4 min pins! How about some

I sure like the nylabones- they are very safe and last a long time. Once they start to get a crack or two, you get rid of them. I can have them around for months....

HOPE this helps
