Lastly, be sure to look for the dog toy’s manufacturing location: Sounds a bit odd, huh? Even though is not probably the most important tip, it is still vital to your dog’s health. Seems like every day there is a new story about toxins and chemicals getting into food, toys, and many other things. Since dog toys are not closely regulated as human products are, some infected toys can be passed out into the market. Do your research by checking to see if certain dog toy companies have issued any recalls. Also, talk to friends and neighbors to find out if they had issues with their dog toys.
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.
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.
