Your dog has lots of fun gifts and goodies headed his way this Holiday Season! knows this gifting season is another great excuse to spoil your dog with awesome toys. But, do you know if these toys are really good for your dog? December is Safe Toy & Gifts Month and BBS wants to help raise awareness of what makes a truly good dog toy because we know what your four-legged friend means to you. Here are a few tips to remember to ensure the toys you buy you dog this Holiday are safe.

Quick Tips for A Safe Dogs Toy

Parts & Pieces – If a dog toy has small parts or construction that isn’t sturdy, these can quickly become choking hazards for your dog. Less is more—toys devoid of frills and decoration are likely to have fewer parts. Make sure your dog’s toy is durable and can withstand many hours of play.

Squeakers & Filling – Dogs can destruct a toy in a matter of minutes if it isn’t durable or they have a strong desire to play. Squeakers in toys can really get dogs going, but if left unsupervised, these can become dangerous. Filling in stuffed toys, whether beads or fluffy stuffing, can block your dog’s respiratory passages.

Size Matters – A large mouth and a small toy don’t mix. Your dog could inadvertently swallow a toy too small for their size. Match your dog’s size with their “prey,” such as a Labrador Retriever with a duck.

For Dogs Only – Giving your dog a toy that designed for them is important. Most toy makers realize the needs of your dog and the power of their jaws. Children’s toys can potentially be given to dogs if they are safe for children 3-years and older.

Dog Care 101 Tip #192: How To Have a Happier Dog

When your dog wags his tail, you know that he is excited, but is he content? knows that you try to provide your dog with the absolute best, but your dog’s happiness is more than just two meals a day and a belly rub. Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs is a way to look at human motivation by piecing out essential physical, emotional and mental needs. With dogs being highly social creatures, many of these principles can be applied to develop a more complete four-legged best friend. Read on to find out how you really can have a happier dog.

Physiological (Pyhsical Needs)
Fresh Clean Water – Your dog’s water should be refreshed daily and free of debris. If a water bowl is kept outside, make sure it’s not stagnant (this can breed disease), frozen in winter or overheated in summer.

Good Nutrition – Every dog owner will have a different recipe for success with their dog’s food. There is no one right answer, but feeding your dog healthy and nutritious meals is important. Talk to your vet about good feeding options for your dog. Make sure your dog is in a healthy weight range as well; overweight dogs are very unhappy. Treating your dog is something that shouldn’t be hard either. A good bully stick or all-natural chew from BBS will guarantee your dog is getting a healthy, nutritious treat.

Exercise – Is your dog getting enough exercise? For the best health, your dog needs to expend their energy (which they always have plenty of). Exercise will make your dog’s life longer and fuller and prevent compulsive disorders or unwanted behavior. Breeds are different in their exercise needs, but all dogs do need it.

Hygiene – As much as possible, your dog needs to stay clean so they are comfortable in their own body and skin. Little things like dirty ears, long nails or tartar on teeth can lead to very serious and painful problems. Keeping a clean, brushed coat, trimmed nails, clean ears and teeth are one less potential discomfort your dog has to feel.

Chewing – Unlike humans, dogs have a need to chew. Providing the proper toys and chews will help them meet this desire without taking it out on your belongings.

A Place to “Go” – It’s very important for dogs to have a consistent place to use the bathroom away from their “den.” A highly normal dog will eliminate away from where they eat and sleep. Doing otherwise means they feel as if they aren’t given proper time or a place to do so. read more…
