Dogs love to chew on a fun toy. Providing dogs with toys to play with is necessary to encourage the overall health and well-being of your family pet. Toys are not a luxury for your dog, but rather a basic need. Playtime is an important part of their emotional and cognitive health and well-being. Behavioral problems, such as gnawing on things, can arise when your pet does not have the suitable avenues to follow their impulse.
Getting your dog a toy is a great way to help fight boredom when you are not at home and stop your pet from forming behavioral issues. Dogs are frequently willing to play with just about anything. Nevertheless, it's recommended to give toys that offer a range of uses and to alternate them every week to try to keep things safe and interesting. Training dogs to discern their toys from their humans possessions can stop them from biting on things they should not.
How to select dog toys:
Dog toys must be safe, entertaining, and long lasting. Your selection 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 puppies to help them develop their teeth, muscular tissues, and joints. Give pups with toys to chew on, chase after, bite, and tug as one means of helping them in growing. Pups with baby teeth are going to require toys with a softer structure.
Another vital factor when buying dog toys is the proportions of the toy relative to the size of your dog. Too tiny of a toy is specifically dangerous with the danger of swallowing and choking. The toy you select for your dog needs to be appropriate for your dogs present size. Selecting the very best dog toy will ensure both a safe and fun playtime. Safety must always come first, followed by enjoyment when picking toys for your dog.
It's important to observe your dog while they have fun with their toys. Visually evaluate their toys periodically to check that it has not been damaged to pose a danger 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
