Between working from home and trying to wrangle your family, this whole social-distancing while in quarantine thing is an adjustment for everyone—including pets. Although it’s a good idea to get out and walk your dog as much as you can, you may find that he needs to blow off a little more steam than usual. These seven toys and treats can definitely help.


1. Outward Hound Hide-A-Squirrel Puzzle Dog Toy

If your good boy is seriously missing chasing squirrels, give this puzzle a whirl. The plush squeaky critters detach so you can push them into the tree trunk and wait for your dog to hunt them down. The best part? He won’t pull your arm off like he might on leash.

BUY IT ($30; $24)


2. Greenies Dental Dog Treats

Not only are these treats good for Rover’s teeth, but they’ll make all that face-to-face time a little easier on the nose.

BUY IT ($40; $34)


3. KONG Classic Dog Toy

An oldie but a goodie, this Kong classic provides endless entertainment options for your furry friend. Hide a treat inside, put a dollop of peanut butter in or just toss it around the living room and your pup will surely get some energy out.

BUY IT ($13)


4. Trixie Activity Flip Board Interactive Dog Toy

From one pet parent to another, this toy is a game changer. It seems funny, but just like us, dogs enjoy the mental stimulation of a brain teaser.

BUY IT ($12; $11)


5. Bones & Chews Bully Stick 6” Dog Treats

Yes, they smell kind of funky, but nothing gets our doggos smiling quite like a bully stick. Pro tip: Give your pet one before you have to hop on a Zoom call and they’ll be totally silent.

BUY IT ($12)


6. Pet Zone IQ Treat Ball Interactive Dog Toy

Warning: This interactive plastic ball is super loud on wood and tile floors, but it’s worth the ruckus. Keep your pup from overeating and enjoy how cute he looks while using his problem-solving skills.

BUY IT ($12)


7. Nylabone DuraChew Bacon Flavor Bone Dog Toy

It’s long-lasting and bacon-flavored. Need we say more?

BUY IT ($15; $9)
