How To Select The Best And Safest Dog Toys
For puppies and other pets, toys aren't a luxury, but a requirement. Toys are important for your dog's well-being. Toys help combat boredom when you have to leave your pet at home, and provide comfort when they are feeling anxious. Toys can help prevent your dog from developing certain problem behaviors. Although cats can be quite picky about dogs dogs are often more than happy to play with any object they can get their paws on. This means you ought to be particularly careful when tracking your dog's playtime to prevent any"unscheduled" activities.
Several elements lead to the safety or danger of a toy, and a variety of these rely upon your own pet's size, activity level and preferences.

Dog-proof your home by removing string, ribbon, rubber bands, children's toys, pantyhose and other inedible items which can be swallowed. Be sure to get toys of appropriate size for your puppy. Toys that are too small can easily be swallowed or become lodged in your dog's throat. Supervise your dog's play with squeaky toys: your dog may believe that they must locate and destroy the source of the squeaking, so they can ingest it if left unwatched.
Avoid or alter any toys that aren't"dog-proof" by removing ribbons, strings, eyes or other parts which can be chewed off and off. Discard toys when they begin to split into bits or are torn. Check labels on stuffed toys to see that they are labeled as safe for children under three decades old and that they don't contain any hazardous fillings. Remember that soft toys aren't indestructible, but some are sturdier than others. Soft toys should be machine washable.

If your puppy sees their toy for a companion, then select one that is small enough to take. Many dogs want to shake or"kill" their possessions, so choose one that's big enough to prevent accidental swallowing and sturdy enough to withstand the dog's attacks.
