Let’s face it. Weims can be tough on their toys, and my dogs are no exception!
Different Weims have different tastes in toys: some prefer to cart a sacred toy around for weeks, others can find endless amusement (er, destruction?) in a simple tennis ball. Some can de-stuff and destroy the toughest of toys, and yet others won’t play unless you play with them.
Here are my tried and true recommendations that have passed muster with my Weims, no matter their play style.

Kong toys just can’t be beat. Make sure to pick the right toy for your dog, though! The classic Kongs are color coded, and most Weims need the black one, for vigorous chewers. Mine have made quick work of most of the Wubba, Squeezz, Air Dog and plush toys that Kong makes. But no beating the original!
If your Weim loves to play ball, this is a major upgrade from her old stinky tennis ball! Plus, no fuzz to chew off! This ball, combined with the Chuck It? They got ya covered!
Skinny Rooster, Mr. Monkey, Fairy Armadillo, these guys all took a beating from a slew of puppies playing hard with them. Not indestructible, but they are super cute and great for puppies!
The Hurley and the Tux are my dogs' faves. Made in USA, and they stand up to my dogs incessant chasing and chewing.
This company also guarantee their products and have a cool recycling program!
Tugs aren’t for your dog to play with unsupervised, and it takes a Weim about nine seconds to gnaw through one these and create a really nice bowel obstruction. But as far as tugs go and as a tool for building drive? Perfect!
Okay so I have always wondered how these boring looking chews can hold my Weims' interest for so long, but whatever I don't care! Nylabone makes a lot of different textured, shaped and flavored chew toys and my dogs love them all!
There are various versions of treat dispensing toys, and my Weims really like this one. And since they are spoiled, we are now on number three because major chewers always somehow chew the yellow top off. That said, this thing really keeps my Weims' attention for a loooong time. And that's the whole point right?!
Sadly, these are currently unavailable due to supply chain issues, but keep checking on them because they are the real deal.
These rawhides are a complete roll made from one thick sheet, made in the US and with no chemicals. See the photos and captions in the Whole Dog Journal article because you really want to make sure that you give your dog high quality raw-hide, not the cheap crap!
This thing is the best invention ever! This is one of my "cheats" for those days I really don't have time to attend to my Weims' exercise needs. Even 10 minutes of vigorous fetch with this thing can make a difference!

Why I Love Puppies That Bite
Those needle teeth in those snappy little jaws on your Weim puppy may drive you crazy and cause some hurt, but I love puppies that bite!
Hello. My name is Ricardo. My Weim Sassy is 6 months old. I was thinking about buying interactive puzzle toys to keep her entertained; like this one from Amazon: Outward Hound Nina Ottosson Dog Interactive Puzzle Dog Toy
Hope to hear your thoughts on this toy.
Hi Ricardo! I like puzzle toys a lot, and while I (or rather my Weims) have not tried this particular one, I see that for some rambunctious dogs, they may rip off the plastic pieces. I say this because I have a Bob-A-Lot, which most of my Weims will play with and keep intact, but one of them has eaten off the top. That said, I would try it! If the toy engages Sassy for a while, it will definitely be worth it. Let us know how it goes if you can!
