It’s not just Homer Simpson who has a love affair with donuts. Pets are often happy to take a bite out of these dunkable sweet treats, too—especially when they’re filled with fluff or squeakers. They may not be glazed, but if you’re in the market for a fun new toy for your dog, these donut toys are worth a look.
And hey, some even come with sprinkles. Here are the best donut dog toys available right now.
If your dog likes variety as much as you do, this three pack of squeaky donuts is bound to satisfy. They even have embroidered sprinkles (sugar glaze not included). They’re not far off of real donut size, so they’re best suited to small or medium-sized dogs.
Helpful review: “The dogs love it and don’t seem to be as motivated to tear it to bits because there’s no small, movable squeaker. I got the normal size for two dogs, 55 lbs and 65 lbs and they’ve held up well :)”Buy Now on Amazon
Need a sturdy donut? This toy has a squeaker, yes, but the core contains a strong rope for tougher chewers or serious fans of tug games. The donut also has chew guard technology to make the soft lining even stronger.
Helpful review: “I didn’t want a squeak toy because my dog doesn’t like things that squeak. Luckily, this thing is so solid you really have to squeeze hard to get the squeak. If you want a squeaking toy, you might try a different one but this is a great toy for us. Durable and handles chewing really well. We’ve had this toy for months and it’s still holding up great!”Buy Now on Amazon
A little bit plush toy, a little bit puzzle toy. Stuff this coffee mug with plush donuts and your dog can have a fun time digging them out—especially if you put treats in with them. The donuts themselves have squeakers and the mug has a pun—what more can you ask for? Best suited for small to medium-sized dogs.
Helpful review: “I basically only buy my Italian greyhound zippypaws toys.. these are especially awesome because they are ball shaped. He will just hold one of them in his mouth and walk around lol. He has so much fun digging them out. I also like to stuff these with treats…keeps him busy for like 10 minutes fishing around with his snout and pulling out the treats and toys.”Buy Now on Amazon
Although this toy is less likely to inspire a trip to Krispy Kreme, it’s going to be way more durable than the other toys featured here. Essentially a large, round chew toy made of rubber, even tough chewers will have a heck of a time putting a dent in this bad boy. Plus, it floats, so water sports are A-OK.
Helpful review: “I am amazed that this toy is still in one piece! My three wolverines have yet to put a dent in the Gougnuts toy, and trust me, they have tried. Repeatedly. Relentlessly. Desperately. I believe that they must be as surprised as I am that they have, to date, been unable to tear apart this amazing little ring.”Buy Now on Amazon
This toy is essentially a doubled-up version of the one above. If your dog really likes tug of war, having a two-holed donut means more leverage for you. Still tough as nails (except rubber, which is much better to chew on), this toy is great for aggressive chewers.
Helpful review: “My dog destroys everything in minutes but loves stuffies and ropes, most rubber toys she’s not even interested in. I was wary of trying this product due to the reports of a strong chemical rubber smell, but decided to give it a go anyway and this toy barely has an odor at all even after being played with. She absolutely loves gnawing on it and playing tug of war with it. So far not a scratch! I think this toy will last a long time. Well worth the price. Great Dane tested, Great Dane approved!”Buy Now on Chewy
