Dogs love to play. Presenting dogs with toys to play with is necessary to encourage the physical health and well-being of your dog. Toys are not a luxury for your dog, but rather a necessity. Playtime is an essential component of their emotional and mental health and wellness. Behavioral problems, such as biting on items, can arise when your dog lacks the correct outlets to follow their intuition.
Buying your dog a toy is a great way to help prevent boredom when you are not at home and prevent your dog from forming behavioral issues. Dogs are typically ready to play with nearly anything. Nevertheless, it's highly recommended to offer toys that offer a variety of uses and to rotate them every week to keep things safe and interesting. Educating dogs to distinguish their toys from their humans personal belongings can stop them from gnawing on things they shouldn't.
How to select dog toys:
Dog toys should be safe, entertaining, and durable. Your choice for the toys depends on the age, size, and activity level of your dog. The ideal time to introduce toys into your dog's life is when they are pups to help them form their teeth, muscle mass, and joints. Give pups with toys to chew on, chase, bite, and pull as one method of assisting them in flourishing. Pups with baby teeth are going to need toys with a softer composition.
Another important factor when buying dog toys is the size of the toy relative to the size of your dog. Too small of a toy is specifically dangerous with the danger of swallowing and choking. The toy you give your pet must be appropriate for your dogs current size. Choosing the best dog toy will ensure both a safe and enjoyable playtime. Safety should always come first, followed by enjoyment when selecting toys for your dog.
It's important to observe your dog while they play with their toys. Visually evaluate their toys occasionally to check that it has not been harmed to present a threat of choking. Get rid of any toy that is broken.

What Our Customers Say
The folks who work here are always friendly and very helpful.
I only go here if I need a pet store great quality food treats and supplies. I really appreciate the pet stylist I had Sara Hurd. She really did an AMAZING job on my girls cuts and trim as you can see and they loved it. Also the cherry on top she put this fall themed collar bows on them after was just better than I could of asked for. Will be going back whenever they need their spa day and feel confident it will be done well. For only 50 plus tips each very reasonably priced.
Every item is high quality. My dogs are especially fond of the small treats on the left. Personal is well trained and friendly. I very highly recommend this place
This is the best local pet supply store. This ain’t no fancy pet boutique with inflated prices… just great products at reasonable prices. They offer case discounts and loyalty rewards such as free bag of dog food after X number of bags bought. Sometimes we are given free treats or other goodies.
We have also used their grooming/nail trim services— very reasonable prices and often able to accommodate short notice. I have even received walk in service though I would not expect it.
The staff is super friendly and will even bring the heavy bags out to your car if you ask or they often will offer. That’s what it’s all about — SERVICE! Love this place and go back for anything I need.
Amazing pet store! They have a huge assortment of treats for my Mom's dog, Tobey! Highly recommend
