Dog Toys, the Need for Them

Your dog's toys are super important for mentally and physically stimulating and assist in fulfilling your fur kid's emotional and physical needs. Even though dogs today are primarily bred as companion pets, they still need something to do. In the absence of a “job", they'll look for things to do to occupy their time and fulfill their chewing needs. If you don’t want them to choose their own chew toys, such as your sofa, pillows, or toilet paper rolls, provide them with an adequate toy to sink their teeth into.

Your pup needs a dog toy to provide mental stimulation, allow for the appropriate chewing, and to serve in behaviour modification.

There are hundreds of dog toys on the market and many people fill toy boxes for their pets.The correct dog toys are excellent mental stimulators that encourage active play and minimise periods of boredom. This reduces the risk of destructive or attention seeking behaviours manifesting in your dog.

However, dogs are a lot like children, and they get bored with their chew toys quickly. When this happens, the value of the dog's toy as a mental and physical outlet is lost. Trainers recommend that pup parents select six to eight toys for each pet ensuring that each is different in texture, size and shape.

Toys should be given out a few at a time, then rotated every few days so that your dog always has a different one to play with. Rotating your pups toy lot is the best way to keep your canine sharp & stimulated.

Most people greatly underestimate the intelligence of dogs and are surprised to see how much their pets enjoy a challenge.

"Dog toys are a great way to teach your pet to relax."

Chew bones, antlers, hooves and other long-duration chewing products promote relaxation and focused chewing.  Dogs will lie down with these (behaviour we like) and contently chew.
