Dogs easily become bored when they are stuck inside by cold weather and without the proper dog toys and chew toy stimulation, they can quickly become destructive. With winter quickly approaching, you may already be dreading those long, cold days stuck in the house with your precious pets. The good news is that there are many tools available to keep your dog entertained, happy and most of all keep them from destroying your home and possessions. First, you need to understand why a dogs behavior can become so destructive.
The problem actually lays with us humans. Initially dogs were born and survived in the wild where they were naturally active and kept busy hunting for food and protecting themselves. Unfortunately, when we domesticated them, their lifestyles gradually became sedentary as they were brought into our homes and fed out of bowls instead of hunting for their food. To compensate for their lack of natural activities, it is necessary to provide plenty of dog toys and chew toys to keep them entertained and properly stimulated.
How can we pick just one talkingrealsound dog toy? There are so many great ones. Norman, The Sound Loving Dog decided on the Look Whos Talking Loofa Chimp by Multipet. This toy has a screaming Chimp sound and a cawer squeaker too...so it has two great sounds in one toy. We love Dr Noys Dog Toys by Kong. These plush dog toys have little or no stuffing, plus they have replaceable squeakers. They even come with extra squeakers. We love them all but are suggesting the Extra Long Snake. This snake is great for tugging, shaking, and squeaking.
An example is a plastic cube with treats inside which the dog must find a way to get out of the cube. The cube is also adjustable, so as your dog figures out how to get the treats out, you can make it harder so he wont get bored. Another example of this type of dog toys is a rubber ball that helps clean your pets teeth when he plays with it. Your dog bites the slits in the ball. His teeth sink into the grooves. The grooves stimulate the gums and clean the teeth, and dispense treats or kibble for your pet.
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.
