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!
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.
