The notorious Bark Jacobs dog toy. What could be better than a designer shoe especially made for your pampered pup to chew? The Bark Jacobs dog toy was a creative adaptation of one of the world’s most renowned shoe designers (for humans), was well made as a dog toy, and was available in small and large sizes. Unfortunately the original Bark Jacobs dog toy has since become unavailable, but fortunately there are plenty of alternatives. Our favorites are made by Haute Diggity Dog.
The first is the Manilo Barknik:
The Manilo Barknik is similar in size to the original Bark Jacobs toy, and certainly emits a similar style. It’s leopard print design with pink accents is sure to leave your pup feeling like a member of high society, and the squeaker inside will serve as added reassurance. Check out that heel!
Another great option is the Tory Bark shoe toy:
If you prefer flats – or rather your pup prefers flats! – the Tory Bark shoe toy might just wind up as your pampered pup’s favorite chew toy. The toy is machine washable and will also squeak upon chomping. With any luck, your dog will love it almost as much as your favorite pair of flats!
There are many options for shoe-like dog toys available today, but these two are most similar to the original Bark Jacobs model. Treat your dog to a shoe made to chew, and maybe you’ll even spare your wardrobe!
