Dogs love to chew on a fun toy. Supplying dogs with toys to play with is vital to ensure the overall health and well-being of your pet. Toys are not a luxury for your dog, but rather a requirement. Playtime is a critical part of their emotional and cognitive health and well-being. Behavioral problems, such as chewing on objects, can transpire when your pet does not have the correct outlets to follow their impulse.
Getting your dog a toy is a great way to help prevent boredom when you are not in the house and prevent your pet from developing behavioral troubles. Dogs are typically ready to play with nearly anything. However, it's encouraged to offer toys that feature a variety of uses and to alternate them every week to help keep things safe and interesting. Training dogs to differentiate their toys from their humans belongings can stop them from chewing on things they shouldn't.
How to select dog toys:
Dog toys must be safe, entertaining, and long lasting. Your choice for the toys depends on the age, size, and activity level of your pup. The best time to present toys into your dog's daily life is when they are puppies to help them form their teeth, muscular tissues, and joints. Provide puppies with toys to gnaw on, chase after, bite, and pull as one method of assisting them in thriving. Pups with baby teeth will need toys with a softer texture.
Another crucial variable when purchasing dog toys is the overall size of the toy relative to the size of your dog. Too small of a toy is specifically unsafe with the threat of swallowing and choking. The toy you select for your dog needs to be appropriate for your dogs current size. Selecting the best dog toy will ensure both a safe and fun playtime. Safety needs to always come first, followed by enjoyment when picking toys for your dog.
It's important to monitor your dog while they have fun with their toys. Visually inspect their toys occasionally to check that it has not been damaged to present a risk of choking. Remove and replace any toy that is damaged.

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
