Keeping your dog entertained is no mean feat. Dogs are notorious for having lots of energy, especially puppies and finding ways to keep them occupied can be hard. Dogs need a lot of entertaining and most don’t like being left alone for long periods of time, however sometimes you just don’t have the choice but to leave your pup to fend for itself. Many dogs will start showing destructive tendencies when left on their own so you might come home one day to find your favorite pair of shoes chewed to within an inch of their lives or your new sofa with bite marks in the arms.

If you do have to leave your dog home alone for extended periods of time or just want to treat your pooch with something fun to play with then a dog toy is the perfect solution. There are many different types to choose from which is great in terms of choice but it does make it difficult to work out which one your pet will really enjoy playing with. Dog toys are all designed to be enjoyed in different ways and it is up to you to think about the preference of your dog when choosing an ideal dog toy. Here are just a few to think about: chew toys, fetch toys, plush and stuffed toys, rope toys, interactive toys and even ones designed to keep your pooch’s mouth healthy. When choosing a dog toy for your beloved pet it is important to bear in mind his or her preferences first and foremost but you also need to think about safety. Some dog toys can present safety hazards so you do need to be aware of this.

Active dog toys are the products that are designed to keep your dog both mentally and physically active. These tend to be very tough and durable so will last forever and won’t easily get destroyed by your pet. These comes in all shapes and sizes, a favorite of most dogs is the rope toy as these are great for playtime with a willing owner. Active toys tend to come in bone shapes and are the sort of dog toy that you and your canine companion can enjoy for many years to come.

Distraction dog toys are different to active toys as these are filled with food treats to keep your pet occupied for long periods of time. Your dog will love the challenge of having to chew through the toy to reach the treat at the center and will feel rewarded when they do so. Most dogs love these sorts of dog toys because they enjoy the challenge and the treat at the end of it; it’s like a mini treasure hunt for them!

Comfort toys are the sort of fluffy, plush toys that your dog just loves to cuddle up to in bed. These are designed to keep your pet cozy when sleeping and provide them with comfort. These soft dog toys are available in many different shapes and sizes and most friendly dogs will just love snuggling up to their new best friend when bedtime comes round.

When you set out to treat your pet to a new dog toy the most important thing to bear in mind is his or her size. You don’t want anything that is too small and could be a choking hazard; on the other hand you don’t want anything too big for a small breed as it could intimidate them. As long as the toy is safe and well constructed then you should have no problems and your pet will love you for their new toy.
