Setting out to buy dog toys can be a lot of fun for you. There are so many options on the market to look through. Our one pooch, Pickle, has several plush dog toys that she loves playing with. Her favorite, Ted, has been repaired so many times that we’ve lost count but still goes everywhere that Pickle does.
Who can forget that cute Facebook video where the guy took his little doggie to choose her own toy, and she came out with a stuffed animal that was bigger than her? You don’t have to stick to just the toys that your pup can cuddle up to, though.
An activity toy for dogs allows them to learn and may also give them a bit of a mental workout as well. Toys that you can hide a treat in are particularly popular with our furry friends. These take some maneuvering on the part of your pet for them to get at their treat, but they are a great deal of fun.
Puppy ball toys are a great option if you want your pet to be a little more active. You’ll find a wide range of options in our online store for pets. Some come with squeakers, and some are just plain — you’ll have to decide which kind would be more appropriate for you.
When choosing a new toy, it is vital that you consider the size of the dog. A golf-ball-sized toy would be dangerous for a bigger breed, for example, because they could swallow it. You want to make sure that the toys are small enough for your dog to carry, but not so small that they could be swallowed.
