It is important that you purchase safe fetch items for your dog. If you dont want to spend the money, you can make good fetch toys, toys such as braided rope items that are too thick or big for the dog to swallow. Individual socks that dont match make wonderful braided ropes, provided that they are tied together into a large enough knot that they can not be swallowed. Another excellent way to make several good throwing toys is to take an old garden hose and cut it into foot long strips. When you are teaching your dog to fetch it is a great training trick to have a whole set of these rubbery "sticks" handy, because you can throw one out and as the dog begins to bring it back to you, you can immediately throw another one...thus he will drop the first one and go after the one that you just threw. This is the first step towards training him to release the object to you.
If you are looking for great toys for dogs home alone, do some research about what has worked for other dog owners. Watch how your dog plays with their toys and see what keeps their attention for a long period of time. If they are more likely to bounce from toy to toy, try giving them a variety to choose from. Do not blame your dog when they find a way to amuse themselves by destroying one of you plants or your curtains. If you find that nothing you try is working, talk to your vet or trainer or consider taking your dog to doggie day care.
