HOW TO PROPERLY PICK A TOY FOR YOUR PUP
Posted: Jul 15 2016
Let us help you find the perfect toy for your pet! Here are a few things to consider when searching for a toy...
1. Size Matters.
Pick a toy that your dog will be able to comfortably and safely play with. We have sizing symbols on our site as a little helping hand.
2. Double Whammy.
Consider getting a dog toy that has a dual purpose or provides your pup with more ways to play. Try a toy that’s designed to help with a teething puppy or one that cleans those pearly whites.

As much as we wish they were, no dog toy is indestructible. Make sure to think about whether your dog is a chewer. If so, you may want to avoid plush toys and try something a little more durable.

4. Cuddle Buddy.
If you’ve ruled out that your dog is a chewer, sometimes the best option is a plush toy that they can play, carry or snuggle with. Cuddly toys are also great to have for puppies who may still be missing their litter mates.

5. Triple Threat.
For the pups who seem to lose interest quickly, try choosing toys that combine multiple materials and sounds such as plush, rubber, and squeakers. This will bring triple-the-fun to playtime!
WE RECOMMEND: Super Plush $7.99 - $12.99
6. Location, Location, Location.
Does your dog like to play outside or in the water? If so, choose a dog toy that can easily be cleaned off… or better yet… is waterproof!

7. Quality Time.
Don’t want to feel left out? Pick a toy that you and your dog can play with together. Rope toys are great for games of tug or fetch.

8. For the OG.
If you have a senior dog consider the things above, but also remember that your four-legged may need something a little softer to play with.
WE RECOMMEND: Sprong $7.99 - $10.99
