If your dog has the habit of destroying his toys, this may be a perfect toy for him. He can dig the stuffed toys out of the base repeatedly rather than dig the stuffing out of a traditional stuffed animal. These toys have built in squeakers, making it easy to get your dog worked up about finding the toys. These are great toys for smaller dogs (under forty pounds), especially terriers. Terriers, named for their digging, will love digging the toys out. These dog toys will also make your dog smarter by encouraging him to figure out how to get the dog toys out of their hiding place.
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.
However, dog toys made with a material that is both durable but still soft, are the perfect alternative. A good example of this type of material is West Paw Designs exclusive material Zogoflex. The material is non toxic, earth friendly and their dog toys are made in the U.S.A. Many canine owners say that toys made with Zogoflex are more durable and longer lasting than Kong dog toys. What About Powerful Chewers Who Only Like to Chew on Soft Dog Toys?
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.
As many small dog owners can tell you, some small dogs have an extremely powerful jaw and so you will need to compensate for that by purchasing a little bit bigger dog toy for them than their size would indicate. Otherwise, they will obliterate a toy that does not suite their needs. If you have any experience with a dog and their dog toys, you will know that most dogs tend to have one particular toy that they favor. Let me just say, if this is the case at your house, go buy three more just like it and put them away for future use.
