Though the autumnal equinox is still a few weeks away, the Labor Day weekend and cooling temperatures have us looking forward to Fall. And while our kitties are snug at home, our favorite tongue- and tail-waggers still must brave the chill for exercise and bathroom trips. So this month, we're dedicating our Fall picks to our fearless four-legged friends who will withstand whatever weather nature throws at them for some outdoor fun!
Monty has a passion for unstuffing his toys. Judging by the look on the bear's face—he is feeling a bit nervous.

Years ago, I passed off some salmon snacks to my pal Samson 'cause I couldn't deal with the smell. Similarly, I have friends who complain all the time about the scents of their pups' natural chews. P. U. One of my favorite things about those antlers is that they're odor-free — do you let your pets dine on stinky stuff?

After many hours spent baking over the weekend, if I never see another cookie cutter again, it will be too soon. Lucky for me, these cute gingerbread men need no mixing or frosting and still satisfy a sweet spot. Spoil your good little boy with some no-sugar-added toys to chomp while you're in the kitchen making the real thing or spice up his toy box regardless of your baking prowess.
If your pet has new toys on his Christmas list this year, it's a perfect time to seek out overused goods in his toy box. Remember to discard any tattered toys with broken or peeling pieces but, from rubber to rope, follow these steps to clean each type!
Both chocolate and sugar-free candies are dangerous for dogs — don't worry, that means more for us! Yum. Since candy goes hand in hand with Halloween for the (human) kiddies, check out some sweet treats for your furry babes, too. Mmm, in honor of Howl-o-ween, time to dig right in for squeakers, stuffing and all!
Dealing with fleas and ticks is no joke . . . but these toys are! Your furry friends will want to catch and kill the mutant insects that play up their pesky counterparts. While the plush versions are pet-safe with exaggerated features, the fleas and ticks serve as fun reminders to keep pets up to date on their antibug meds. Would your dogs pester these toys?
Whoa, this pretty picture is pretty meta. A super cute Boston Terrier smooshy with a lookalike squeaky pooch, too! Now, I'm no stranger to bowls and placemats with doggone silhouettes, or even matchy statues, but I've never seen a plush toy meant to resemble his very own.
So far there's a limited offering of pedigree pals — are you relieved or displeased?
If you're worried about veggies that can be poisonous, stuffed veggies are totally safe to be chewed . . . just not swallowed. The super cute Joie de Veggie toys ($7 and up) come full of squeakers (carrot and eggplant) or rattles (squash, tomato, or green pepper) for his playing pleasure.
North already loves real carrots so he'd get a kick (and squeeze) out of the plush alternative, too. But which would top your pet's list?
North loves his Kong frozen with peanut butter and plain, nonfat yogurt, but seems less interested when it's stuffed with treats. It's hard enough for me to squeeze them in there, so I bet he gets tired of working them out, too. I can never seem to fit more than three of his favorite peanut butter bones in the small style.
After I picked up a medium-sized Kong a couple days ago — recommended for pups 15–35 pounds — I planned a new strategy of fulfillment to maximize the space.
