10 Best Indestructible Dog Toys For Heavy Chewers and Rough Play
Importance Of Toys For Your Dog
Young dogs in particular enjoy playing, keeping active and discovering and exploring their new environment. The right toys can help your furry friend on this exciting mission of discovery and keep him physically, and dentally fit.
While as a puppy you can get toys that can help him with exercising his jaw muscles while chewing and as he grows the ones that clean his teeth and keeps him active. The chewing helps in removing tartar and plaque.
Toys are a great incentive for your dog to perfect his grabbing technique when playing fetch at the park. During your bonding time you can dangle an enticing toy within his reach to catch it. This is particularly good for your dog’s developing shoulder, back and neck muscles as he is able to stretch even his hind legs.
Features you should look for when choosing a Toy:
- Bright colours and high-contrast patterns. Your dog will be attracted and might love brightly coloured toys or toys with different shapes as they are appealing to his sight and will be challenging to play with. In contrast to popular belief, dogs do see in colour, just not in the same way as humans.
- Dangling toys. Toys dangling from above can help in his exercise activities. Reaching for toys will help develop his grasping skills too and stretch his back, neck, shoulder and hind legs keeping him fit.
- Strong material. Dogs are very destructive and you wouldn’t want to keep on buying toys, they love chewing hence an indestructible toy will be ideal for his chewing instincts. The chewing help to clean his teeth and remove tartar.
- Appealing toys. Dogs are aggressive hence you need a toy with different textures which are great for exploring. Feeling the difference between rough and crunchy will stimulate your dog’s senses. The squeakier and noisier the toy, the more excited and playful he will be! It is good to stimulate all his senses.
