Dogs love to play. Providing dogs with toys to play with is necessary to encourage the overall health and wellness of your puppy. Toys are not a luxury for your dog, but rather a basic need. Playtime is a vital component of their emotional and mental health. Behavioral challenges, such as biting on items, can form when your dog lacks the correct channels to follow their behavioral instinct.
Buying your dog a toy is a great way to help fight boredom when you are not in your home and prevent your pet from forming behavioral issues. Dogs are frequently happy to play with just about anything. Nonetheless, it's highly recommended to give toys that deliver a range of uses and to rotate them once a week to keep things safe and interesting. Educating dogs to differentiate their toys from their humans valuables can prevent them from chewing on things they should not.
How to choose dog toys:
Dog toys need to be safe, fun-filled, and long lasting. Your option for the toys depends on the age, size, and activity level of your pup. The best time to introduce toys into your dog's life is when they are puppies to help them develop their teeth, muscular tissues, and joints. Offer pups with toys to chomp on, chase, bite, and tug as one means of helping them in developing. Pups with baby teeth will need toys with a softer texture.
Another essential factor when buying dog toys is the overall size of the toy in relation to the size of your dog. Too tiny of a toy is especially hazardous with the danger of swallowing and choking. The toy you buy for your dog should be appropriate for your dogs current size. Picking the best dog toy will certainly ensure both a safe and fun playtime. Safety should always come first, followed by enjoyment when choosing toys for your dog.
It's important to monitor your dog while they play with their toys. Visually examine their toys regularly to check that it has not been harmed to present a risk of choking. Get rid of 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
