We wanted to share our top 5 tips for choosing a dog toy

Size of dog Vs size of the Dog toy

If you have a St Bernard you don’t want to buy a small chew toy. Make sure the size of the dog toy is suitable to the size of the dog you have.
If the size of the toy is not suitable to the size of the animal. Then they can lose interest pretty quickly.

If they lose interest, then can start getting up to mischief.  Think of holes in your garden.

Type of dog toy

This can be a little tricky. What type of dog toy should you get for your pet?

Well, I have to be truthful here. I bought a squeaky dog toy for my Boxer.  The boxer loved it, but when watching TV it proved annoying that it squeaked every time right in the important parts of the TV show I was watching.

Squeaky toys are fine for outside dogs, but if you treat your dog like a part of your family and bring them inside. You might want to buy something suitable for inside.

A healthy toy for your dog

Yes, you certainly get a treat that is healthy. If it’s a hot day, you can freeze a large bottle of water and give it to your dog to chew on throughout the day.
Also, there are plenty of toys that you can put treats in and let your dog play with them till they a rewarded with the treat.

These types of toys can be a great way to entertain your dog for hours at a time.

A durable dog toy

This one can be a little tough. Dogs’ average bit strength is 269 pounds, so buying a dog toy that is tough and durable can be tough. Don’t be put off by Dog toys that are made in China.

Look for durable plastic dog toys.  Stuffed dog toys can be great but generally, they won’t last too long.


Just like children, a dog’s upkeep can cost a bit. If they are the playful type and chew their toys to death, you don’t want to be shelling out a lot of money for something that your dog will destroy in minutes.

Investing a small amount of money in the right way can help keep your dog engaged and occupied when you are not there.

Spend wisely, and make sure you get something that is durable and sized right for your dog. And you should never have a problem choosing a dog toy that is right for your pet.

The one free thing you can give your dog is your time. You need to spend time with your dog playing with them. Keeping your pet happy is a great way to make sure that they like the toy you got them.
