When it comes to our furry friends, finding the right toys that can withstand their enthusiasm and energy is crucial. In Australia, the demand for tough plush dog toys has been steadily rising as pet owners seek durable options that provide both entertainment and lasting companionship for their canine companions. Unfortunately, Australia really doesn’t have a massive range of tough plush toys so I’m going to cover my favourites.
Now I’m not gonna lie to you, my German Shepherds are NOT regular owners of plush toys but that doesn’t mean my customers shouldn’t spoil their dogs with a high-quality tough plush toy that doesn’t turn to fluff in 3 seconds flat. Now the toys I discuss below are in no way indestructible (let’s be real, no dog toys are) but they are hopefully going to last your dog just that little bit longer.

One of my favourite brands here at Dog Games is West Paw which has a goofy collection called Rowdies which has been specially designed to be long-lasting and tough!
They’re a tough plush toy that is made with HardyTex Fabric for the plush part which is a reinforced plush fabric with a mesh backing.
Then on the arms of these quirky fellas, you’ll find the Zogoflex chew zones. Zogoflex is a non-toxic, BPA-free, phthalate-free, latex-free and FDA-compliant material which they use on their other tough stuffable interactive dog toys.
Easy to Clean and Maintain
Keeping your dog’s toys clean is important for their health and hygiene. West Paw Rowdie toys are designed with the ease of cleaning in mind. Many of them are machine washable or can be easily wiped clean with a damp cloth. This makes it convenient for you to maintain the cleanliness of the toys and ensure a healthy play environment for your dog.
Just look how cute these guys are! We stock most of the range here with:

Kong has a decent range of tough plush toys as well that are worth a review. Now I don’t stock Kong as you can buy them from our friends at Lucky Pet just about anywhere but they are still worth a review.
