Choosing the Right Toy for Your Dog

How to Choose the Right Toy For Your Dog

The key to choosing the right toy for your dog, revolves around three things:

  1. The mechanics of a dog’s jaw - Hard-core chewing happens in the back of a dog’s jaw. An appropriately-sized, round, hollow ball is less susceptible to destruction because dogs cannot get it to the back of their jaw. Plus, being hollow, coupled with pliability, a toy will have ‘give’ which pleases those dogs who love to squish. And squish. And squish. If you have an aggressive chewer, you should look for a perfectly round, one-color toy.
  2. Size – Make sure you are buying appropriately-sized toys for your dog. It will ensure a longer-lasting toy and a more enjoyable experience. Selecting the right size minimizes the risk and hazards of unwanted choking.
  3. Know your pup – Check each toy for a durability rating or scale. Know how your dog chews and how aggressive of a chewer they are. Know if your dog enjoys picking with his front teeth or really likes trying to get toys back into their jowls.
