For dogs toys are a necessity. Toys help fight boredom and toys can even help prevent some problem behaviors from developing.
Toys should be appropriate for your dog’s size.
Toys we recommend
Very hard rubber toys, such as Nylabone®-type products and Kong®-type products, are available in a variety of shapes and sizes and are fun for chewing and for carrying. Be sure to choose a Kong-type toy of appropriate size for your dog. “Busy-box” toys are large rubber cubes with hiding places for treats. Only by moving the cube around with his nose, mouth, and paws can your dog get to the goodies.
Get the most out of toys
Rotate your dog’s toys monthly by making only a few toys available at a time and then rotate them with other toys.
