Dogs love to chew on a fun toy. Providing dogs with toys to play with is essential to encourage the overall health and wellness of your dog. Toys are not a luxury for your dog, but rather a necessity. Playtime is an essential element of their emotional and intellectual health and wellness. Behavioral problems, such as biting on things, can develop when your dog lacks the appropriate avenues to follow their impulse.
Buying your dog a toy is a great way to help prevent boredom when you are not in the house and prevent your pet from forming behavioral issues. Dogs are often willing to have fun with just about anything. However, it's strongly recommended to offer toys that provide a variety of uses and to rotate them weekly to try to keep things safe and fascinating. Educating dogs to differentiate their toys from their humans valuables can stop them from biting on things they should not.
How to choose dog toys:
Dog toys should be safe, fun, and sturdy. Your selection for the toys relies on the age, size, and activity level of your pet. The ideal time to introduce toys into your dog's daily life is when they are puppies to help them develop their teeth, muscle mass, and joints. Give pups with toys to chew on, chase, bite, and pull as one way of aiding them in thriving. Pups with baby teeth are going to need toys with a softer texture.
Another vital element when purchasing dog toys is the size of the toy in relation to the overall size of your dog. Too tiny of a toy is especially unsafe with the threat of swallowing and choking. The toy you give your dog should be appropriate for your dogs current size. Selecting the very best dog toy will ensure both a safe and enjoyable playtime. Safety must always come first, followed by fun when picking toys for your dog.
It's important to observe your dog while they have fun with their toys. Visually inspect their toys occasionally to check that it has not been harmed to present a risk of choking. 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
