It seems like most dog toys cater to seeing dogs only, but blind pups love to play, too! That’s why I’m sharing this list of blind-dog approved toys that are fun, accessible, and available on Amazon! 

There are tons of options, including fetch toys for blind dogs! That’s right, blind dogs can play fetch, too, and it’s just as fun and enriching as it is with a sighted dog. 

I have a blind cane corso and have fostered several other blind dogs, so I know what works. For blind dogs, scented toys, treat-dispensing toys, textured toys, and noisemakers are some of the best options on the market. If you want my list of blind dog best practices you can find that here.

Today, I’m suggesting ten budget-friendly toys ideal for blind dogs (these have all been successful for my blind dogs).

1. Wobble Wag Giggle Ball

A toy fit for small or large dogs of all ages, the Wobble Wag Giggle Ball is an interactive toy with an internal tube noisemaker.
