Different Breeds Mean Different Needs - The type of interactive toy you should buy can depend on the breed of your dog. For example, German Shepherd dogs could focus for a long period of time on solving a puzzle. Giving them a puzzle toy that they need to figure out can keep them busy for hours and stimulate their minds. Toys that you can put treats into are a great choice as they will be tempted to keep trying until all of the treats are gone. Smaller dogs such as Chihuahuas, Beagles, and so on may not be able to focus for a long time on one toy. They could do better with a variety of interactive dog toys that they can choose from. My two small dogs love rope toys and squeaky toys.
Families across the world have a dog in their household and treat them like any other human being. With that being said, dog owners should be cautious when purchasing items for their beloved family members. When it comes to dog toys or even treats, make sure to read the ingredients to see what your dog could be potentially eating. You know the saying less is more? Well that is perfectly suitable when it comes to dog toys. If there is a toy that is loaded with add on features such as buttons, feathers, strings, or zippers - stay clear! All those items could be potential choking hazards for your dog. The importance of this last tip is a bit lower but still important - check to see if certain dog toys have been recalled. Follow these tips and the next time you are out buying a dog toy, you will be able to safely pick a toy that is suitable for your dog!
Is Your Dog Destructive - Do you come home after leaving your dogs home alone during the day to find that they have destroyed something? When your dog is bored, they will play with anything interesting to keep them busy. My German Shepherd mix single handedly destroyed several small trees and bushes in my back yard because he did not have anything else to play with. Instead of blaming the dog, I blamed myself. It is unfair to leave your dog home alone without anything to do and expect them to sit around patiently and wait for you. I solved this problem by giving my three dogs a variety of interactive dog toys to play with. This keeps them busy and out of trouble.
