Bullmastiff LOVES her football!

If you’re a Bullmastiff owner, you know that these sweet dogs are known for their love of playtime. And when it comes to toys, it can be tough to find ones that can withstand the power and enthusiasm of a Bullmastiff. That’s why we were so excited to discover the Nerf Dog Bash Treat Football Dog Toy, which quickly became a favorite for Ruger our Bullmastiff.

The football dog toy is made from durable materials that can stand up to rough play and chewing. Its unique shape makes it easy for dogs to pick up and carry around, and its soft texture is perfect for chewing and gnawing. Our Bullmastiff loves to play fetch with her football toy, and she also enjoys carrying it around the house and showing it off to visitors.

One of the best things about the football dog toy is that it can help promote exercise and playtime for your Bullmastiff. As a breed that is prone to obesity and weight gain, it’s important to make sure that Bullmastiffs get plenty of exercise to keep them healthy and happy. Playing with a toy like the football dog toy can provide mental and physical stimulation, and it’s a great way to bond with your furry friend.

Overall, we highly recommend the football dog toy for any Bullmastiff owner looking for a durable and fun toy for their pup. It’s a great investment that will provide hours of entertainment and playtime for your furry friend, and it can help keep them healthy and active as they get older.

Dog Toy for a Big Dog: BARK Super Chewer Aurora Beast

For Christmas, Santa brought Ruger a Bark Super Chewer Aurora Beast Dog Toy. The super cool thing about this dog toy is that it’s not only made for aggressive chewers, it’s a two-in-one dog toy! The toy is covered with plush fabric that your dog can enjoy until it starts to fray. The plush outer covering can then be removed for a second, hard chew toy for your dog to enjoy. Pretty neat since Ruger loves plush toys but can typically tear them up in less than 30 minutes!

If you have been interested in trying the BARK Super Chewer line of dog toys, check out the Bark Super Chewer Box. Receive a Limited Edition Welcome Gift when you click the image below…a YETI dog bowl ($40 value)! It will arrive with your first box of tough dog toys and meaty dog treats.

Looking for a dog training course that can fit into your busy schedule?

Dogs who have never been trained and have been allowed to do as they please for a good part of their lives often find the initial stages of learning difficult, since the concept is entirely new to them.

While we were fortunate to be able to enroll Ruger our Bullmastiff in puppy training with Redwood Coast K9 Academy, we know that not everyone has time in their busy schedules to physically attend a dog training class.

Learn how to become interesting and worth listening to by investing in reward-based training methods, like the ones taught in Adrienne Farricelli’s Brain Training for Dogs course.

Dog Toy for a Big Dog: West Paw Tizzi

We have gone through several dog toys since bringing home our Bullmastiff. While she loves plush toys, she’s torn open plush dog toys from Kong and Tuffy’s, so we always have hard chew toy, such as a Benebone, available for her to chew on. This West Paw Tizzi dog toy, however, has a specific use.

We use the West Paw Tizzi to keep our Bullmastiff occupied when we are leaving the house. We fill the pit with her favorite dog treat and give it to her just before we walk out the door. She’s happy…and we’re happy that she’s happy.

The dog treat used in the video is a Carob Apple Pupcake. We used to offer this dog treat when we operated a gourmet dog bakery in Humboldt County, California.


  • Don’t pack the dog treats into the pit too hard, or your dog may not be able to get the treat out.
  • It’s been trial and error, but I find that the homemade dog treats I make for our dog have the best consistency to allow your dog to get to the bottom of the pit, but I have used store bought treats as well.
  • Bananas work very well with the Tizzi!
