Dogs love to play. Supplying dogs with toys to play with is important to encourage the physical health and wellness of your dog. Toys are not a luxury for your dog, but rather a requirement. Playtime is a vital component of their emotional and mental health and wellness. Behavioral concerns, such as biting on objects, can form when your dog lacks the proper channels to follow their intuition.
Buying your dog a toy is a great way to help fight boredom when you are not in your home and stop your pet from forming behavioral troubles. Dogs are often going to play with just about anything. Nonetheless, it's suggested to give toys that offer a variety of uses and to alternate them once a week to keep things safe and intriguing. Training dogs to differentiate their toys from their humans belongings can prevent them from biting on things they should not.
How to choose dog toys:
Dog toys must be safe, entertaining, and durable. 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 life is when they are puppies to help them form their teeth, muscular tissues, and joints. Offer pups with toys to chew on, chase after, bite, and tug as one method of helping them in thriving. Puppies with baby teeth are going to need toys with a softer composition.
Another crucial factor when purchasing dog toys is the proportions of the toy in relation to the size of your dog. Too tiny of a toy is especially unsafe with the danger of swallowing and choking. The toy you select for your pet should be appropriate for your dogs present size. Picking the very best dog toy will certainly ensure both a safe and enjoyable playtime. Safety must always come first, followed by entertainment when choosing toys for your dog.
It's important to monitor your dog while they have fun with their toys. Visually evaluate their toys occasionally to check that it has not been harmed to pose a threat of choking. Switch out 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
