Dogs love to chew on a fun toy. Presenting dogs with toys to play with is essential to promote the physical health and well-being of your dog. Toys are not a luxury for your dog, but rather a basic need. Playtime is a vital element of their emotional and cognitive health and well-being. Behavioral challenges, such as biting on items, can form when your pup lacks the suitable avenues to follow their behavioral instinct.
Buying your dog a toy is a great way to help fight boredom when you are not in the house and prevent your dog from forming behavioral troubles. Dogs are typically willing to play with just about anything. However, it's recommended to provide toys that provide a range of uses and to rotate them weekly to help keep things safe and intriguing. Training dogs to distinguish their toys from their humans personal belongings can stop them from chewing on things they shouldn't.
How to choose dog toys:
Dog toys must be safe, entertaining, and sturdy. Your option for the toys relies on the age, size, and activity level of your pet. The best time to present toys into your dog's daily life is when they are pups to help them form their teeth, muscle mass, and joints. Offer puppies with toys to gnaw on, chase, bite, and tug as one method of assisting them in growing. Puppies with baby teeth will need toys with a softer texture.
Another essential element when buying dog toys is the size of the toy in regard to the size of your dog. Too small of a toy is particularly dangerous with the threat of swallowing and choking. The toy you buy for your dog must be appropriate for your dogs current size. Picking the very best dog toy will certainly ensure both a safe and fun playtime. Safety needs to always come first, followed by excitement when picking toys for your dog.
It's important to keep an eye on your dog while they play with their toys. Visually evaluate their toys occasionally to check that it has not been damaged to pose a threat of choking. Replace 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
