? Our dogs love to play with us. Playing with our dogs is also vital for building a good relationship during training. ?
It’s so important to have the right sort of toy for your dog. When considering buying a new toy think about what is right for your dog –
1. Size: the size of toy can have an impact on how appealing it is for your dog. Getting a toy that is too big may be difficult for them to pick up. Likewise if a toy is too small it could be swallowed.
2. Shape: consider your dog’s mouth shape. Try to match a toy to the shape of your dog’s mouth. This is particularly important for tuggy toys as you’ll want a toy that is large enough for both you and your dog to hold.
3. Type: consider your dog’s individual play style. For example, if your dog likes to chase consider a longer toy that can be used as a lure. Also consider which material your dog likes to bite.
The video below shows the ideal toy for this puppy:
– A long toy shape that suits his mouth size.
– A longer toy for him to chase.
– A furry lure that he likes to bite.
When buying a new toy why not buy different types and let your dog choose which is their favourite. Offering your dog a choice can provide additional enrichment and help keep them happy and content.
