Dog toys are a great gift for your pup! They do a large number of things, from helping train your dog to distracting him while you cook dinner! There's a wide array of types, with one for every variety of dog. Is he a chewer? He'll appreciate something with thicker rubber! Does your dog get bored quite frequently? Then a toy that makes noises is the one for him! We stock every kind here at Equipet, Ireland's favourite online pet shop.
Chewing rubber or latex dog toys can contribute to a dogs's overall good dental hygiene. Another benefit of toys for dogs is the exercise that they can get from playing and chasing them. You can buy dog toys online that have been designed to provide stimulation for a dog's mind, which helps reduce the risk of the problem behaviour that can arise as a result of boredom. A Kong filled with a treat or treat paste, for example can keep a dog occupied for a long period where the owner may not have the time to provide the stimulation needed. When you're busy, make sure they're busy too!
While dogs may be immediately drawn to some toys, many owners find it a struggle to get them to engage with others. What you think might be the perfect toy could be found forgotten behind the sofa a few hours later! This ties in with reducing boredom, and the best way to make a toy fun for a dog is to play with them! Playing tug of war or fetch with a toy can show them how interesting it is, and highlight features he may have missed like fun textures or a squeak!
Puppies and young dogs can benefit from dog toys that they can chew on, as this chewing action helps relieve gums that have become sore from teething. There are several types of toys that are ideal for pain relief, starting with the famous Kong brand. These toys can hold treats within and are almost indestructible, as well as having special puppy variants created to help sore pup gums. Equally any tough nylon toy will be great at withstanding these puppy pierces!
