Dog Toys to Keep Your Four-Legged Friend Amused
Puzzles and playthings for the pooch in your life!
Whether your pet needs mental stimulation, something to exhaust them, or just something to chew that won’t get them into trouble, there’s a toy to suit their needs. Take a look at what’s on offer...
Dogs are a lot like humans in that nothing incentivises them to play like an edible treat. So if you want your pooch’s play to exercise their brain—and to get them into the habit of realising that they have to work for their treats—a puzzle-style toy that they have to solve before being automatically rewarded by a snack is ideal. Just look for one that allows you to step up the difficulty, or change the predictability so that it has more longevity.
Chew toys don’t just help to create a bond between you and your pet as you play tug-o-war, or protect your soft furnishings and shoes from getting chomped. They can also improve your dog’s dental health as they help to massage their gums and clean their teeth.
Let’s be honest, even the toughest toys are going to give up the ghost after a daily chewing. Think about buying a set of several so that when the odd one gets lost in the park, or loved to death, you have a replacement to hand. It usually brings down the cost per toy as well.
