Question Help! Need dog toy x-mas gift ideas!

Going shopping for x-mas toys and need some ideas. What is your Doberman's favorite toy and/or chew?

Ivan's favorite chews are a raw meaty bone from the grocery store, a smoked beef bone from the local specialty meats store (never witnessed any splintering), bully sticks (seems to prefer Best Bully Sticks to Red Barn), and Moo Shoes from Tractor Supply. He also likes raw hides, but they turn into a gluey mess that gets all over everything. He likes Himalayan chews as well, but they're not his favorite. He has no interest in antlers, but he's only had whole ones. I want to try one that's been cut in half down the middle to see if that makes a difference.

Ivan loves to shred stuffies, but has never swallowed any of the pieces, which could make them unsuitable for some dogs. I like the ones from TuffieToys.com as they seem to last slightly longer.

Ivan really enjoyed his Kong Wobbler. He tended to chew on the threads though once he figured out how to get it apart and once that happened he stopped batting it around and immediately went to ripping it apart with his jaws. I'll have to be quicker about taking it off of him/stopping the chewing so it can be screwed together tighter and last longer.

He has a used, slightly deflated soccer ball for outside that he loves.

Parker's favorites are stuffies, which he tears apart pretty quickly. Other favs arre his Kong Wubba and his green squeaky bone from JW toys. Can't remember it's exact name. The green bone has lasted since last Christmas.

It didn't help us at all. We have both. I have soaked them in broth. Nothing.

He enjoys picking them up and running around with them, though! My walls down the hall do not so much enjoy it...

This, Bouncing Burrow Buddies, Dog Ball Fetch Toys | PetSolutions, is Murphy's favourite toy in the WHOLE WIDE WORLD! Unfortunately I can no longer find them in Canada. So, I send it to a parcel service in the states, and drive down to purchase a second one. All for the love of dog.

It lasted a good 4 months, which is more than I can say for most of his other toys. I'd continue to let him play with it, but he now enjoys chewing the nose too much and I can see the sqeaker ball in the head. Seriously, best toy ever.

Murph loves his wobbler, and his chuckit as well. Loves his kong which I stuff with PB and kibble then freeze.

Loves knuckle bones and bully sticks. Also himalayan chews, but to me they aren't worth the money for the amount of time they now last him. They were better as a puppy.

My dogs love food dispensing toys, like the Kong Wobbler, Buster Cube, Twist-n-Treat, Tricky Treat ball.

Meadow I bought the invincible for Christmas do they really keep squeaking after they bite into them?

Bella loves her tuffys (just ordered a whole bunch from dog tuff ) and loves Her wobbler. She hasn't really taken to the kong as much as some of the others here and doesn't have too much interest in balls but she absolutely adores her flirt pole (not really a toy) and her sqidoos (tug toy wrapped around a ball). I really need to get our dogs a giant toy box it looks like we have a hundred fur kids here at the end of the day. They are all really hard on their toys but they do get great use out of them.
