Best Toys For Your Miniature Husky
The toys this breed plays with have to challenge their mind and be durable, so we’ve put together a list of the best toys for Miniature Huskies.
Miniature Huskies are entertaining and engaging, but like their larger Siberian Husky relatives, they get bored quickly and are prone to wanderlust. Smaller dogs often equal smaller toys, and to a degree, this is true. But, your Miniature Husky may get bored with the average chew bone, so you need to keep them enticed and engaged.
1. Editor’s Choice: GoughNuts Extreme Chew Ball
You will most likely still want a ball or two for your Miniature Husky as they love to play with you and fetch is one of their favorites. But you’ll need a ball that’ll hold up to its strong jaws and teeth, so you’ll want one like this. The GoughNuts Ball is guaranteed for life and comes in 5 color options: red, orange, green, black with yellow or red spots.
2. Runner Up: GoughNuts Rubber Chew Tug
This tug/chew toy is also from GoughNuts, and again, virtually indestructible. That’s important with a Miniature Husky because they often, in their play, take that challenge to destroy very seriously. Perfect for puppies who are teething, parents who want to play or just gnawing during that few minutes of downtime, it was designed just for dogs 10-40 pounds.
3. Best Treat Ball: Pet Zone IQ Treat Ball
The Pet Zone IQ Treat Ball will keep your miniature and super active husky mentally stimulated and physically active while they play. It will help to enrich your pet’s quality of life by giving them something physical to work on while working their brain at the same time! Huskies and other active dogs have a tendency to scarf down their food which isn’t good for their digestive system. The Pet Zone IQ Treat Ball slows down their earring and helps reduce bloating and improve their digestive system. It’s also a bit cleaner than other slow feed dog bowls and snuffle mats.
The best part about the Pet Zone IQ Treat Ball is that you can adjust the difficulty as your dog learns. Once they learn how to roll the ball to get the treat out, you can make it harder so they can keep working and honing their skills. There are 2 sizes available- 3” and 4” – so the toy fits dogs of any shape and size. It is also easy to clean, which makes it the perfect toy for both your pet and you!

5. Best Fun Design: Zeus Bouncing Bulldog Toy
