The Way To Select The Very Best And Most Secure Dog Toys

For puppies and other pets, toys are not a luxury, but a requirement. Toys are important for your dog's well-being. Toys help combat boredom when you need to leave your pet in your home, and supply comfort when they are feeling anxious. Toys can even help prevent your dog from developing particular problem behaviors. Although cats can be pretty picky about dogs dogs tend to be more than willing to play at any object they can get their paws on. This means you ought to be especially cautious when monitoring your pet's playtime to prevent some"unscheduled" activities.

Ensure security
Many elements contribute to the danger or safety of a toy, and a variety of these rely upon your pet's size, activity level and preferences. Another aspect to consider is the environment where your pet spends their time. Although we can't guarantee the safety of any particular toy, we could provide the following guidelines. The things which are usually most attractive to dogs are often the very matters which are the most dangerous. Dog-proof your home by removing ribbon, string, rubber bands, children's toys, pantyhose and other inedible items which could be swallowed. Be sure to buy toys of appropriate size for your puppy. Supervise your dog's play with squeaky toys: your dog may believe that they need to find and destroy the source of the squeaking, so they can take it if left unwatched.

Discard toys when they start to split into pieces or are torn. Check labels on stuffed toys to see they are labeled as safe for children under three decades old and they don't contain any dangerous fillings. Problem fillings include nutshells and polystyrene beads, but even"secure" stuffings aren't truly digestible. Remember 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 such as dog collars toys come in many shapes and sizes and are fun for chewing gum and carrying around. For dogs who like tug-of-war and chewing on intriguing textures, woven and rope toys are usually available in a"bone" shape with knotted ends. Tennis balls make great dog toys such as pulling, but don't stand up to chewing nicely. Discard any tennis balls which have been chewed through, since they can pose a choking hazard for your pet.

Distraction toys
(In case your vet says that your dog can eat peanut butter, add a few to the crushed-up treats for a tastier --and busier-- treat!) Many dogs who often eat their food too fast gain from being fed through a feeder-style toy.

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