If you have a pooch who refuses to chew on any type of hard or medium type of dog toy, you are not alone. Theres a ton of finicky dogs out there who just dont find any sort of chewing satisfaction in chewing on hard chew toys they just dont like the way these type of toys feel on their teeth and gums. But, whats the alternative besides those cheapo, ripemapartinasecond stuffed animals?
Hard wearing toys are advisable or you will end up spending a fortune on toys if your dog keeps destroying them. And toys which make a noise always seem like a good idea until your dog squeaks them continuously. You can give your dog stuffed animals but some destructive dogs will simply destroy them, and if you have children then their toys might be next. Tug toys are great and ideal for pups that want to play with you all of the time as are balls and Frisbees; these are ideal ways for you to be active and play with your dog at the same time.
Its just a different style of play. Some dogs like to nurture and some dogs enjoy playing by exercising their prey drive. Its all fun and nobody gets hurt except the toy. If you have one of the dogs who likes to exercise his jaws and eviscerate toys then you may go through a lot of toys. Most toys are not designed to hold up to these toykillers. Soft rubber toys, squeaky toys and stuffed animals will all come apart fairly quickly when a dog really wants to destroy them.
Always make sure that you buy bigger toys rather than smaller ones. Toys will last longer if your dog cant get the entire toy in his mouth. Just because your dog destroys stuffies and toys with squeakers doesnt mean he doesnt like them. On the contrary. He probably really loves them a lot. Unfortunately, you probably dont enjoy buying them so your dog can rip them apart in a few seconds. Do consider sewing them back up for your dog. He wont mind. You can also buy second hand stuffed animals at your local Goodwill for less than a dollar.
When you are not in the house you know that your canine will be chewing its toy and not your furniture or possessions. By providing your dog with plenty of toys of all different types you are displaying good dog care. Your canine will appreciate the love shown and will learn that good behavior with the toys will provide rewards. Dogs respond well to a reward system and if they see that they will get toys if they leave other items alone then they will strive to do this. Dog Toys are an important part of your dogs happy and healthy lifestyle.
