All dogs, no matter what breed or age, will need some form of toys because just as humans get bored easily so do canines. Although we may think that dog toys are not that important to your dogs they are a major part of their lives. Dog toys are a great way to encourage positive play and will bring you closer with your dog. Toys are great to stop your dog from being bored when you are not in the house and hopefully will stop them being destructive. It is an idea to have several different toys for your canine; this will stop them being bored as they are able to select different toys.
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.
Jolly balls or large toy balls for horses can make good toy balls for dogs. These balls are big and they are tough enough for horses to play with so it seems impossible for dogs to destroy them. Hard plastic Nylabones are durable and virtually impossible for a dog to destroy. They can survive nearly anything. These are the nonedible Nylabones as opposed to the edibles. In general, if you are looking for indestructible dog toys, look for hard rubber and hard plastic toys. These toys hold up much better to destructive dogs than toys designed for gentler play.
Puzzle toys keep dogs busy and are a great way to bond with your dog. The Hide A Squirrel by Kyjen Pet Products is the most popular of these dog toys. The Hide A Squirrel is a plush stump with 3 little squirrels that fit in the holes in the stump. You put them in and your dog takes them out. The little squirrels are favorite toys of many dogs because they have a squeaker in the middle and are easy to carry around and squeak. If youre a dog owner then you have probably had the pleasure of buying toys for your dog. Its fun to pick out a great new toy and bring it home.
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.
