People are always saying, “I wish I could live a dog’s life”, but what do dogs do all day long? What is your dog’s hobby, how do they keep busy and exactly what occupies their time? Your dog’s hobby is toys. Dog toys are your dog’s life. That is why it is important to get your dog toys that are interesting, challenging, and enjoyable and will keep their attention.
There are many dog toys on the market today, but you want a toy that is fun for your dog and safe. Make sure that there are no small parts sewed onto the toy that could be chewed off and swallowed. Balls and other dog toys should be large enough that your dog cannot swallow them.
A dog food or treat dispensing toy will challenge your dog as your dog works to remove it. This is a good dog toy for overweight dogs as it slows down the mealtime process. Stuffed squeaky toys will keep your dog enthused for hours. Make sure it has bright colors and embroidered detail or eyes. Embroidery will stay put and can’t be swallowed. Reinforced stitching is important to add to the longevity of the dog toy. Real antlers naturally shed by wild deer are collected, cut, cleaned and packaged as dog chew toys. These antlers make great dog chew toys because they are nonsplintering and dogs love them.
Dogs need people time to reduce stress and feel loved. Interactive dog toys enhance the bond between you and your pet. Try playing catch with a frisbee or ball, or play hide and seek with your dog and a dog toy.
Everyone is going green and that goes for the dogs too. There are many dog toys on the market today that are packaged in and made of recyclable material. A toy dog bone made out of megalastomer in an environmentally friendly solar powered facility and is recyclable will make your dog feel like he’s doing his part to help our environment. There are also dog toys made out of 85% recycled IntelliLoft fibers and stuffed with IntelliLoft fiber fill. This stuffed dog toy is created from soda pop bottles.
Give your dog only a few toys at a time and rotate them weekly. This will keep your dog interested in all of his toys. If your dog has a favorite toy you’ll want to leave it out all the time.
Your dog should have one toy to carry, one to “kill”, one to roll and one as a “baby”. Just like people dogs need variety and have a variety of needs.There are many pet stores that allow you take your dog into the store with you. Taking your dog to the pet store makes a great outing and your dog can pick out their own toy.
Dog toys are fun for dogs and can be fun for the humans that play with the dog and their toy. Get interested in your dogs hobby and fetch your dog a toy.
