Summer is officially here! School is out, the family is outdoors, the smell of barbeque is in the air. Summer is one of the best times to get friends and family together to enjoy activities, play games, and have a good time!

 While the whole family is out having fun, though, make sure you have something fun that your pet can play with too! With all their built up energy, they are going to need some fun adventures to keep them entertained both inside and outside.

 Here are some of our top picks for pet toys this summer –

  •  Toy Laser Light

 The toy laser light is a household favorite! Most pets go CRAZY for this little light beam and will chase it around countlessly for hours. It’s a great indoor toy for those days when it’s too hot to go outside, and it’s especially great for getting your pet moving – which is sometimes hard when they are confined to the inside. Most pets will chase the laser beam around for hours – which is also a great way to get their energy out before bedtime. It is absolutely a must-have for this summer!

 A suction cup tug of war is a great multi-function pet toy for pets that are left at home a lot. If you have to work during the day and the pet is home by themselves, this is a great toy to keep them entertained! Especially for dogs, who could otherwise mess up the house, this toy is great at letting them get their energy out! Simply attach it anywhere and they can play tug of war with it for hours. It’s fun to watch and even more fun for them!

  •  Interactive Catnip Training Ball

 This toy is great for cat parents who want to give their furry friend something special to entertain themselves with. After opening the lid, you can add catnip to the ball, which can make your cat feel excited and happy and quickly become their favorite toy. It can be used both inside and outside! They’ll take it around with them, entertaining themselves, which is a nice change from sitting around scratching the furniture. Plus, it’s a great way for them to get some exercise on their own!

 The dog football is a great toy for the outdoors – and perfect for the summertime! It’s soft and durable and complies with the same safety standards as children’s toys. It is durable yet soft on dogs’ teeth, jaws, and mouth – and also fun for the kids or yourself to play with! If you love being outside, this is definitely the toy for you.

 All in all, as we’re in the midst of some of the best months of the year, be sure you are taking full advantage of the weather with some of these super fun and interactive toys! For more of a selection, checkout the “Pet Toys” portion of our website,
