Choosing Dog Toys

There will be many different dog accessories and toys available to buy from many different outlets. However, before you know it, your house can be overrun with squeaking items that are falling apart and that merely get in the way rather than actually being used.

When choosing any type of dog accessories, it is important to make sure that they are suitable and safe for your dog, and therefore it is wise to take your time to choose toys rather than just buying any old thing in the nearest pet shop.

Size will be very important. Should a toy be too small or have smaller parts that may easily come loose, it may easily become swallowed and cause many health problems for your pet. Furthermore, it will always be worth looking for fewer good quality items over many cheaper items, as the cheaper ones will no doubt wear out far faster, and in turn become hazards before you even have time to notice.

Frisbees and balls are great toys for a pet, and not only will they be good for the dog, but they will be toys that can be used to help bond the two of you at the same time. However, try to make sure they are not too hard as this can end up causing problems for your dog’s mouth.

Once you have the right toys, consider using them to engage your pet more. For example, if you can hide certain dog food within the toy, they may have to work to remove the treat you are offering them. However, again, be sure that the toy is extremely robust and will not fall apart and pose a choking hazard.

The right toys are as important for your pet’s health and happiness as the right dog food will be. So be sure to always choose quality over quantity.
