There is no question about it. Dogs love to play. They're not picky about toys but you should be, for safety's sake. Here are some helpful tips to help you choose the best toys for your favorite canine friend.
Find toys appropriate to your dog's size now (not what size her will be or was). Very small toys can be dangerous they could be swallowed and lodge in your dogs mouth or throat.
Know your dog's chewing habits. More active chewers should only have tough, durable toys. Average chewers can have toys make of plush, canvas or rope. But be careful; if they start tearing them up remove them immediately. Light chewers can have latex or vinyl toys.
Get rid of broken toys or toys that can be easily ripped apart, especially if your dog is still in the puppy stags or is an active chewer.
Variety, variety, variety. Dogs love to play with all kinds of toys.
To keep his interest in toys longer, make only four or five toys available
at a time and rotate them
