Consider your dog's size before buying. Make sure toys are not small enough to swallow.
Avoid toys with loose parts, stuffing or plastic pieces that can break off and choke your dog.
Puppies need softer plush toys. Adults need very durable chew toys made for powerful jaws.
If your dog is an aggressive chewer, choose extra durable rubber or nylon toys that resist damage.
Fetch-loving dogs need exciting chase & retrieve toys like balls, discs & squeakers to keep them occupied.
Prolong play and challenge your dog's brain with treat-dispensing puzzle toys.
Regularly check for damage in dog toys and replace torn, broken or worn toys for your dog's safety.
