A bored dog is very dangerous as they will often find something else to chew, which usually means your furniture. If you can try to encourage your dog to play with their toys then they will not notice that you are away from the house. There are several different styles of dog toys and which ones you choose for your dog will depend on your taste and budget. There are several motivational toys available and some that you can fill with treats and your dog has to try to empty the toy to retrieve them; these are good for dogs that bore easily.
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.
These dog toys are specifically designed to be satisfying to chew on but built tough enough to last. One of the most popular type of toys that owners of powerful chewers swear by are chew toys that are manufactured with a material that is hard but soft, durable but bendable. Its difficult for dogs to really enjoy the chewing pleasure of biting on a surface thats hard, like plastic or a stiff rubber. Sure, these types of chew toys are tough and durable but they arent exactly curbing a dogs instinctual desire to chew.
Giggle Stick dog toys make sounds that many dogs love. Betsy advises the Giggling Flamingo; however, we suggest The Chuckle by Busy Buddy. Rubber surrounds this giggle stick, and so it is an extra durable dog toy. Because we do not know this dogs destruction style, it is best to find toys that are likely to last. Grunters are great deep noisemakers. Your dog is sure to love Kyjen Pet Products Furry Marmot. This super furry toy has a protected grunter in its body and a long tail. If your dog loves to shake its toys, it will love that long tail.
Dont forget to choose some outdoor toys too. I make the distinction of outdoor and indoor toys at my house because we live on a farm/ranch and the dogs like to play with tennis balls, golf balls and other flying projectiles that I dont necessarily allow in the house. LOL. I do allow tennis balls in but only clean ones. Truthfully, its not necessarily the dogs that I worry about breaking stuff as it is as much their dad. As I said, the golf balls stay outside...
