The logic behind your pet’s go-to toy is usually a mystery to many owners. You’ve probably noticed how your friend’s doggo is always carrying a squeaker while yours can’t part with a plushy. It turns out, a dog’s preference for a particular toy has to do with its personality and breed.

Dina Fantegrossi, a veterinary technician and writer at Bark Post, suggests that doggos who opt for squeakers are showing their hunting instincts. Wild canines are born to search out and kill their food out in the wilderness. “During the attack, the smaller animal cries out, and the squeaking sound during play is reminiscent of this.”

Meanwhile, the dogs who gravitate towards balls have an instinct for the chase. Dina explains that: “Pups dart after a squirrel or leap into the air after a flying bird,” and this is how they act on an urge to hunt down a moving target.

The dogs who prefer softer and fluffy toys tend to look for affection and comfort. “Puppy mill survivors and those orphaned as puppies often act out nursing and litter mate behaviors on their soft toys,” claims Dina. Mothers who lost their puppers could also treat a soft toy like their lost pup.

Labradors and retrievers are also known to love their plushies. That could be a reminder of their breeds’ instinct to “recover duck carcasses for their hunters.” The birds have to be returned in perfect shape and thus the dog is used to gently gripping the toy with its jaws.
