Anyone who owns a dog knows that pups are so much more than pets. Dogs are family – no question about it. And because you buy the best gifts (and the healthiest gifts) for your family, you know you’re going to buy your furry friend the best, too. To help you buy your dog the absolute best gift this holiday season, we’ve rounded up 4 non-toxic dog toys that your dog will love.

1. Holiday Lump O' Coal Dog Toy, by Planet Dog

I know no dog who hasn’t been naughty this year -- or ever. The thing is, though, is that dogs are so cute when they misbehave. Reluctantly embrace your dog’s perpetual misbehavior by gifting her this bouncy Lump O’ Coal. This toy is buoyant and mint flavored. It's also easy to clean, non-toxic, and recyclable. Priced at $12.95, sold at Olive.

2. Eco Rattler, by Honest Pet Products

The Eco Rattler is sustainable and totally tempting to playful pups. This durable toy is made from hemp canvas on the outside, and organic wool on the inside. It also features a double-sewn safety squeaker. You can machine wash and dry this toy after a long day of play. This toy also can float (it's perfect for lake trips), and is naturally anti-bacterial and anti-microbial! Priced at $12.99.

3. Under the Sea Plush Toys, by P.L.A.Y.

This adorable collection of dog toys includes a king crab, giant clam, giant squid, green sea turtle, and starfish. Every toy in this collection is handmade and features a durable design. These non-toxic dog toys have squeakers and are made with certified-safe PlanetFill® filler (otherwise known as 100-percent post-consumer recycled plastic bottles). When you buy The Under the Sea Dog Toy collection you also help animals in need: 2 percent of your "purchase price" will benefit the International Fund for Animal Welfare (IFAW). This five piece set is $54.

4. Organic Knit Knacks, by Pet Flys

Pet Flys features an adorable collection of crocheted small, non-toxic dog toys. Each of these toys is made from organic cotton. I’m partial to the hammie (an adorable hamburger, $11) and hottie (a cute hotdog, $11) set.
