If you have an energetic dog that loves chasing things, a ball can serve as entertainment even when you’re not around. A regular tennis ball can serve this purpose. However, if your pet is a large dog breed, choose something more durable, specially designed for heavy chewing. This long-lasting toy is a good choice if you have more than one dog.

You can also go for rubber ones or something with lights so that it piques your pet’s interest.
