Tips on Dog Toys

DOGOTYNot all dog treats and dog toys are safe for your dog. There’s a debate on whether or not you should give your dog rawhide to chew. I did once in awhile but didn’t make it a steady diet. Dog chews are a better choice. Your vet can tell you which ones are best.

Here are some things to avoid when it comes to dog toys
• Avoid the following!

  • balls with single air holes, which can create a deadly suction trap;
  • sticks and stones;
  • heavily dyed toys;
  • toys treated with fire retardants or stain guard;
  • soft plastics.
    • Always supervise your dog’s play time.
    • Choose toys to fit your dog’s size and avoid those he can work to the back of his mouth.
    • Select toys that match your dog’s play style.
    • Keep a variety of dog toy types on hand; rotate to spark your dog’s interest.
    • Don’t use toys as a substitute for interaction.
