How To Select The Best And Safest Dog Toys? Reason #971
The Way To Select The Very Best And Safest Dog Toys

For puppies and other pets, toys are not a luxury, but a requirement. Toys are important for your pet's well-being. Toys help combat boredom when you need to leave your dog in your home, and supply comfort when they are feeling nervous. Toys can help stop your dog from developing certain problem behaviours. Although cats can be quite picky about toys, dogs are often more than willing to play with any object they can get their paws on. That means you'll need to be particularly careful when monitoring your pet's playtime to prevent some"unscheduled" actions.

Ensure safety
Several elements contribute to the safety or danger of a toy, and a number of them depend upon your dog's size, activity level and tastes. Another thing to consider is the environment where your dog spends their time. Although we can not guarantee the safety of any particular toy, we can offer the following guidelines. The things which are usually most appealing to dogs are often the very matters that are the most hazardous. Dog-proof your home by removing ribbon, string, rubber bands, children's toys, pantyhose and other inedible items that could be swallowed. Be sure to buy toys of proper size for your dog. Toys that are too small can easily be swallowed or become lodged in your dog's throat. Supervise your dog's play with squeaky toys: your puppy may feel that they need to find and destroy the source of this squeaking, which means that they can take it if left unwatched.

Discard toys when they begin to break into bits or are torn. Check labels on stuffed toys to see that they are labeled as safe for children under three years old and they don't include any hazardous fillings. Bear in mind that soft toys aren't indestructible, but some are more durable than others. Soft toys should be machine washable.

Recommended toys
Active toys
Hard rubber toys like dog id tags toys come in many shapes and sizes and are fun for chewing gum and carrying around. For dogs that like tug-of-war and chewing on intriguing textures, rope and woven toys are often available in a"bone" shape with knotted ends. Tennis balls make great dog toys such as fetching, but do not stand up to chewing nicely. Discard any tennis balls that have been chewed through, as they may pose a choking hazard for your pet.

Distraction toys
PetsAreTherapy toys, particularly when stuffed with broken-up treats, can keep a puppy or dog busy for hours. (In case your veterinarian says that your dog can eat peanut butter, add some to the crushed-up treats for a tastier --and busier-- cure!) By moving the cube around with their nose, mouth and paws, your dog can get to the goodies. Many dogs who often consume their food too quickly gain from being fed via a feeder-style toy.

Comfort toys
Soft stuffed toys are good for several purposes, however they are not suitable for many dogs. Here are a few tips for choosing the right stuffed toy: Many dogs like to carry around soft toys. In case your dog sees their toy for a companion, then pick one that's small enough to carry. Some dogs want to shake or"kill" their possessions, so select one that's big enough to prevent accidental swallowing and hardy enough to withstand your dog's attacks. Dirty laundry, including an old t-shirt, pillowcase, towel or blanket, can be very comforting to a dog, particularly if the item smells like you! Be forewarned that the item could be destroyed by industrious fluffing, carrying and nosing.
