Toys to keep your puppy entertained are important for any puppy’s development whatever their breed or size. The size that your puppy will grow to, or the breed of your puppy, are irrelevant factors to puppy’s needs.
All dogs develop well in both mind and body when they are provided with suitable dog toys that they can really enjoy playing with, together with their normal routine of daily behavior training.
Toys to Help Puppy Overcome Separation Anxiety
Some puppies and adult dogs suffer from separation anxiety when they are left at home alone all day long. It is a real problem for an owner knowing that their pet is suffering anxiety and also knowing that there is not a lot that can done about providing companionship for the pet. However, providing suitable dog toys can help to ease puppy’s or dog’s anxiety by having something that he/she knows. That familiar toy helps to take the animals mind of being alone and anxious.
Keep Puppy Entertained with Toys to Stop Boredom
Puppies, as well as adult dogs, become bored when they don’t have enough daily activity and this is where having enough toys to keep your puppy entertained comes in. Boredom can cause problems if a puppy or dog decides that some of the possessions in your home are inviting enough to have a ‘good old chew’ at, such as cushions, mats, or even a table leg or the leg of a chair. It makes no difference to your puppy that you value your possession. All puppy is interested in is amusing himself.
Maybe it is that your puppy is cutting teeth and needs something to chew on. So, whether it’s cutting teeth, or simply boredom, it appropriate to provide toys to keep your puppy entertained and, therefore, out of trouble.
Puppies and Dogs Take Pride in their Toys
Some puppies and dogs really love their toys and enjoy showing them off to anyone or everyone who will look and admire their toy/s.
I’ve owned a little dog who believed it was his role to entertain visitors with showing them his toys. After tossing each toy in the air for all to see, he would consider his ‘hosting’ done and leave us all in peace. Anyone revisiting knew what to expect when they arrived. It was lovely to watch him, and sad when he passed on.
So that proves there are all sorts of aspects for providing our puppies with toys for them to really enjoy, whether the toys are to stop destruction of homely possessions, entertain your puppy or dog, or for them to entertain others.
Choosing the Right Toys for Your Puppy or Adult Dog
When choosing a toy be sure that it is the right size for your pet, that it doesn’t have any sharp pieces on it that could harm your puppy. Also be sure to check that the material the toy is made from is suitable to withstand the wear and tear it will receive from your puppy or older dog.
From a hygiene point of view – when choosing a toy made from fabric be sure to check that the fabric toy is washable.
Don’t Forget the Toy box
To help to keep your puppy’s toys in good order, you might like to consider purchasing a toy box a suitable size for your puppy’s toys unless, of course, you already have a toy box available.
