Check the Ingredients: That’s right. Just as if you were going to buy a food product and read the ingredients, you would do the same to see what your dog’s toy is made out of. Be sure to look for artificial colorings or even food flavors. The dog’s mouth is constantly in contact with the dog toy and whatever the dog toy is made out of ends up in your dog’s stomach. If you want to make sure your dog will not experience any bad symptoms, either look for the ingredients or do research on the specific dog toy.
Physical maintenance. As much as it is important for humans, exercise is also vital in keeping your dog fit. Toy Poodles are active little dogs who need a daily walk - be it around the block or in the park nearest to you. Behavior problem such as chewing, digging and urine marking inside the house can be avoided with daily as well as playing ball and fetch. But remember not to over exercise your dog, allow exercise that is only appropriate for your dogs age and breed.
Tennis balls are great toys but only for dogs who are small. Bigger dogs have bigger mouths than most folks realize and the tennis ball really can be swallowed or can end up actually choking the dog at the back of the throat. Bigger dogs often get the ball so coated with slime that it becomes really slippery and this will make it even easier to swallow! If you want to use a ball it is better to purchase a larger ball or make a tennis ball that can not be swallowed by putting it into the bottom of a long sock and tying it in place. Having the sock around the ball prevents the slime from building up and also allows for less chance of having it swallowed because of the "tail" of the sock. Avoiding high vet bills and having fun with your dog with safe fetch toys can both be accomplished. A little imagination and keeping safety in mind can go a long way towards providing a safe play time and/or training time for both you and your dog.
