Choosing the Right Toys for Your Dog: A Guide

Dogs love toys, but some toys are better than others. If you want to pick out the best dog toys for your pet. This guide will help you figure out how to choose the right toys for your dog.

 

Safety

You'll want to make sure that the materials used in the toy are safe for your dog to chew on and won't pose a choking hazard. One way to tell if a material is safe is by checking with the Center for Pet Safety. They list which materials are safer than others and how they compare in terms of safety and durability.

 

Durable

The durability of the toy also depends on what type of material it is made out of. Some materials, like nylon or rubber, tend to wear down faster than others. Hard plastic is more durable than soft plastic but still needs more supervision because pieces can break off and become lodged in the mouth or throat.

 

Size of the dog

You'll also want to take into account your dog's size when choosing toys - a toy that is too small can be a choking hazard, while a toy that is too large can be difficult for your dog to carry around.

 

Where does your dog spend most of his time?

If your dog spends most of his time outdoors, you'll want to look for dog toys that can stand up to weather and wear and tear. If your dog is an indoor dog, he'll need toys that are softer and won't damage your home.

 

What is your dog's personality like?

Is your dog more playful or timid? Consider this when selecting a toy. Is your dog more likely to play fetch or tug-of-war with their toys? Try to match the personality of the toy with that of your pet. Also consider how much exercise your dog gets on a daily basis as well as their age in order to make sure they have enough mental stimulation.
