DOG TOYS

Toys can be as important to a dogs development as they are for children. Toys can do more than keep pets entertained and occupied. Properly selected, they can assist dogs with social and emotional development. Games with toys helps strengthen social bonds, and exercise both minds and bodies.

I recommend every dog have three sets of toys:

  1. One set that they have access to all the time to satisfy the need to chew.
  2. Interactive treat dispensing toys to entertain and keep them busy.
  3. A set of toys that they only have access to when they are playing with their owners.

Variety is important to many dogs. Leave a number of safe toys out for your dog each day to play with and chew on, but rotate the toys daily so they do not become bored with them.

 CHEW TOYS

CHEW TOYS

No toy is indestructible.

  • Anything the dog considers fun can be a toy.
  • Toys must be nontoxic, large enough that they cannot be swallowed, destroyed or ingested.
  • Rotate the toys your dog has access to at least every few days so they do not get bored with them.
  • Supervisor your dog with any new toy to be sure it is safe for your dog.

 TREAT DISPENSING TOYS

TREAT DISPENSING TOYS

  • A quality chew toy will satisfy your dog’s need to chew and provide a constructive and safe way to occupy his time.
  • Chew toys may also help with gentle cleaning of the teeth and gums.
  • Many can be stuffed and/or frozen with their food, applesauce/blueberries, grated carrots/chicken, etc...

 Treat Dispensing Toys

 TOYS FOR PLAY

TOYS FOR PLAY

  • Start by using a small treat so that they come out easily when the toy is rolled or moved
  • Nurture your dog′s natural curiosity by providing encouragement as he explores the toy
  • Slowly roll or move the toy so treats fall out, then encourage your dog to eat the treats
  • The toy can be used to feed your dog a part of his daily meal if you use kibble

 Toys For Play

  • Control the toys and keep them out of sight of the dog
  • If you are a good playmate your dog will be interested in playing with these with you
  • All dogs should be taught to play with toys with their owner, specifically retrieving games, a.k.a. ″sharing″
  • None of these toys hold any magical value. You will need to make playing with your dog fun for your dog. If you have any challenges read Chapter 19 of "The Dog Vinci Code" by John Rogerson.
