What Are The Most Popular Types Of Dog Toy?

Just like small children, dogs love to play and toys are not luxuries to them but a necessity. They are important in ensuring that your dog is well exercised with healthy teeth. In addition to health, toys help in fighting boredom and provide something to keep him/her occupied when the dog is left alone at home. There are certain problem behaviors that a dog can develop especially when it is idle and toys help in ensuring that the dog does not develop this type of behavior.

Unlike cats which are quite picky in the toys they play around with, dogs are easy and can play with almost any object so long as they can get their paws on them. It is therefore important to monitor your dog during playtime to avoid a result of any form of unscheduled activities. There are several types of dog toys and below are some of the three main types of dog toys, the toughest of which you can get from durable toy specialists which have proven themselves among the best

The active toys.

These products often come in many shapes and sizes. They are fun to play around with, chew as well as carry around. If you have dogs that like games revolving around tug-of-war or chewing interesting textures, there are many active toys that you can get. These usually come in the form of woven toys that are bone-shaped with the ends knotted.

In addition to woven toys, the tennis ball is another example of active toys. They are basically the most basic example of fetching toys and some dogs may try to bite the ball. In such a case, it is recommended that you replace the chewed ball before it gets too fragmented as it may result to your dog choking.

Distraction toy types.

If your dog experiences unfulfilled treats, these types of toys can keep your dog busy for a long time. For instance, if your veterinarian recommends peanut butter for your dog, you can add it to the crushed-up treats for a tastier treat that will at the same time keep your pet engaged.Feeder toys are usually large rubber shapes that can be filled with dog treats. Basically, the dog moves the cube around using its nose, paws or even mouth. This way, the dog is busy and distracted.

The comfort toys.

These toys are advantageous in several ways. However, there are not appropriate for all dogs. Below are some of the tips that you should use when selecting the best comfort toy for your dog.

  • There are dogs that would want to shake their toys, in such a case, it is important to choose a toy that is large enough to prevent any accidental swallowing. It should also be sturdy enough to withstand stronger chewing attacks from your mischievous canine scallywag.
  • If you have a dog that likes carrying around soft toys, you should go for the one that is both small enough and preferably stuffing-less so they don’t get ripped apart and leave a mess and potential choking hazard.
  • You can also use old clothing such as unwanted slippers on the dogs as they are very comforting and even more so if they smell like you.
