Frenchies demand more than your average toy…
And I’m sure the last thing you need right now is your Frenchie tearing apart their new toy and eating all its stuffing.
What makes a good Frenchie toy?
- No stuffing
- Fun (of course)
- Perfect size for their mouth
- Durable enough for the teeth (but not too tough!)
Frenchies have such powerful jaws that can tear through most toys with ease— they need something more rugged.
You don’t want anything that has stuffing your Frenchie could potentially choke on.
The 5 Best Toys for your Frenchie
Here’s a list of my Frenchie’s favorite toys… they check all the boxes for Frenchie toys!
If your Frenchie is anything like mine, you get them a new toy, they play with it for 5 minutes, and never touch it again.
My Frenchie has just a few toys that she’s always going back to— here they are.
1. ZippyPaws – No Stuffing Squeaky Dog Toy
This is one of my Frenchie’s favorite tug-of-war toys.
It’s easy for Frenchies to grab it with their mouths because there’s no stuffing, and perfect for anything: fetch, tug-of-war, or just squeaking.
Available in fox, raccoon, and squirrel characters
- Has 3 squeakers
- Perfect for tug-of-war
- Easy for Frenchies to bite/grab
- No stuffing— safer than toys with stuffing
2. KONG Air Squeaker Tennis Balls Small Two Pack
My Frenchie and I have gone through countless balls. She’s destroyed em, lost em, or just plain didn’t like ’em.
These ones are the best ones I’ve found.
Medium is the perfect size for a Frenchie
My Frenchie can play with these alone for hours just squeakin' them (ya, it gets annoying)
- Soft on their teeth
- They have squeakers your Frenchie will love
3. Squeaky Frosted Donut
My Frenchie absolutely loves this donut… she has so many toys, but always seems to go back to this one.
The super cute donut design boasts bright, eye-catching colors your dog will dig.
- Perfect size for Frenchies
It must be something about the colors of the donut that catch her eye… it’s also just a great toy!
It’s just the right size; small enough for them to grab onto but not too small that they’ll accidentally bite your hand if you’re playing tug-of-war with them.
4. Invincibles Snakes
This is one of the most durable toys I’ve ever bought… the squeakers never seem to stop working (maybe they’ll get slightly quieter after months of abuse).
It’s the perfect tug-of-war toy— whether your Frenchie is playing with you or other dogs. It even comes in a gigantic size that is ridiculous (ridiculously fun).
Perfect for tug-of-war between you or with other dogs
Super-tough— Frenchies' jaws are no match for this toy
- No stuffing — no mess
- Available in 3 different sizes (3, 6, and 12 squeakers)
- Squeakers keep squeaking even when they're punctured
5. KONG Classic
You’ve probably seen this toy— it’s a classic.
You can stuff it with
You can also use it to play fetch as well… it’s super bouncy & unpredictable so they’ll even have fun playing with this toy alone!
A classic toy that is a must-have for every Frenchie.
Fill it up with kibble, peanut butter, or any other snack you can find— or just keep it as-is.
Not to mention, it's also great for...
- Crate training
- Separation anxiety
- Teething & chewing
- Weight management
- Unpredictable bounciness for hours of entertainment
- Relieve separation anxiety, reduce boredom, and have fun
- Perfect for stuffing with treats, peanut butter, or KONG Stuff'N Easy Treat Paste
My Frenchie’s Favorites
Of course, every Frenchie is going to have their preferences when it comes to toys, but I thought I’d share what my Frenchie likes in her toys.
Her favorite thing to play is tug-of-war, and it doesn’t matter what toy we’ve got — she’s playing tug-of-war.
Another one of her favorites is any toy with a squeaker. I’ve gotta admit… it can get pretty annoying at times!
