But, do you know if these toys are really good for your dog? December is Safe Toy & Gifts Month and BBS wants to help raise awareness of what makes a truly good dog toy because we know what your four-legged friend means to you. Here are a few tips to remember to ensure the toys you buy you dog this Holiday are safe.
Quick Tips for A Safe Dogs Toy
Parts & Pieces – If a dog toy has small parts or construction that isn’t sturdy, these can quickly become choking hazards for your dog. Less is more—toys devoid of frills and decoration are likely to have fewer parts. Make sure your dog’s toy is durable and can withstand many hours of play.
Squeakers & Filling – Dogs can destruct a toy in a matter of minutes if it isn’t durable or they have a strong desire to play. Squeakers in toys can really get dogs going, but if left unsupervised, these can become dangerous. Filling in stuffed toys, whether beads or fluffy stuffing, can block your dog’s respiratory passages.
Size Matters – A large mouth and a small toy don’t mix. Your dog could inadvertently swallow a toy too small for their size. Match your dog’s size with their “prey,” such as a Labrador Retriever with a duck.
For Dogs Only – Giving your dog a toy that designed for them is important. Most toy makers realize the needs of your dog and the power of their jaws. Children’s toys can potentially be given to dogs if they are safe for children 3-years and older.
