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.
Be sure to pick a bone that fits your dogs size and chewing abilities to avoid choking incidents. If your dog does not finish the bone during their chewing session, pick it up and put it away for another day. Comfort toys develop when a dog is young and dealing with separation anxiety from their mother to a new home but many dogs do not outgrow their comfort toys. However, this type of toy still offers benefits to an adult dog. If you have to travel to unfamiliar places, leave them with a sitter, or vet for a few days, they offer your dog a feeling of comfort and have a reassuring effect.
First, make sure you have a good assortment of toys for them to enjoy. They will get bored with the same one or two toys every day so only give them one or two each day and rotate the toys out to keep them interested. Make sure you choose quality toys for your dog to both prevent unnecessary choking hazards and to ensure that they are long lasting. Many people give their dogs old socks or other household items to play with. This is a common mistake, which only confuses your dog and causes you grief later.
They are made of inferior quality materials and they never last. They also often pose potential dangers such as choking hazards because they tend to fall apart easily. Besides, a toy that doesnt last long is just a waste of your time and money and a disappointment to your dog. If you are picking out a dog toy for smaller dogs or a growing puppy, make sure to choose a toy that is soft and easier to chew and of course in the smaller category. Do not buy toys that have small pieces that could come loose or break off. Again, these are choking hazards and remember, puppies are big chewers.
Balls I have yet to see a dog who does not love their ball and it is a great way for you to interact and play with your dog as well. Make sure you have separate inside and outside balls so that they do not drag a dirty ball into the house. Chew Toy Dogs need to chew instinctively so make sure you provide them with good quality chew toys that do not have small parts that could come off or toys that are full of stuffing and noisemakers. The new stuffing free toys are an excellent choice for chewing and having a game of tugowar.
