When it comes to dog toys, there is so much choice on the market, and I can say there is so much cool stuff you can get for your dogs from interactive dog toys to dog puzzle and chewy toys. While this is really cool, it can be such a difficult task to pick one (or two). We have added a selection of Best dog toys to consider trying.
But before starting, it is important to consider the benefits of playing with dog toys. Dogs are like humans – they get stressed out and this affects both their physical and mental health.
Playing can ensure your dog is kept active and healthy. Keeping your dog active means preventing your dog from becoming overweight or to help lose weight for those that are already overweight. Make sure though the amount of exercise you need can vary depending on dog breeds. I mean, pugs will not require massive amounts of exercise, and you will need to make sure they do not become overheated!
And of course, we love watching dogs playing with toys, it can be very calming and relaxing. It is also true that pet owners are less likely to suffer from depression according to this article. So overall, everyone wins!
So here it is, we have selected some of the coolest and best dog toys that are currently on the market. Some of these are also recommended by PetStruggles who specializes in providing unbiased pet product reviews so we can trust us on this!
