If you’ve got a dog, chances are you’re going through way too many toys, way too quickly. Trust me, it’s pretty much the same for most of us, especially with hyperactive dogs. They just chew through so many toys that sometimes we think if we should even get them any new ones since they’re going to chew through those as well. Honestly, I can say from experience that toys for dogs can actually be more useful than you think. And here’s why:
SOURCE OF EXERCISE
It’s 2022. Everyone is hustling one way or the other in order to make a decent living. Oftentimes this means we barely have enough time to give ourselves let alone our dogs. Most dogs, especially high-class breeds like Labradors, really require constant exercise. This is because their bones and joints are not as strong as the rest due to constant in-breeding leading to poor genetical formations. Therefore, toys for dogs serve to be the best way for your dog to still get some movement even when you’re not able to provide it yourself. A good quality toy can be the best investment you can make for your dog’s health.
Most of us have definitely come across at least one dog in our lifetime who would just hate brushing its teeth. I can say from experience that I’ve probably risked having my face getting bit off one too many times from attempting to brush a dog’s teeth. And it was all for nothing once I realized that there are actually toys for dogs that literally do the job for you. These toys are meant to be chewed on and your dog will actually enjoy doing so because apparently, they’re super tasty. This is a great way into tricking your dog to keep their teeth clean.
Some dogs suffer from major separation anxiety, especially if you’re gone for quite a long time. They’re so attached to us that they just can’t cope when they don’t see us around for a while. We all have seen that chart that shows time passes by much slower for dogs. You could be gone for a couple of hours and to dogs, that could feel like a couple of days. I’d probably go insane if I had to be without my dog for that long. Toys for dogs can really help keep them company when you know you’re going to be out for a while with work or other errands.
Toys for dogs can be a great way to keep their brain constantly in action so theydon’t lose their ability to perform and remember different actions and commands. A dog that is constantly just lying around and not doing much is at risk of brain degeneration due to the brain not being used much often to do anything. Playing with dog toys can help them stay active and have their brain constantly performing an activity so it is never either.
If you’ve got dogs, you know they can be such a handful to train. They pretend that they don’t even hear what you’re telling them to do. In situations like these, toys for dogs can act as treats and motivate your dog to perform those activities without you having to tell them to do it twice. All you have to do is show your dog the toy and tell them to perform the command if they want to play with it. Chances are your dog will finally listen to you if it’s a toy they like.
