What kind of toy should I give my dog?

A lot of people have been asking for advice on the best toys for their dogs. I have put together a list of different types we use at daycare. (I don’t receive any commissions for the links.)

Super Chewers: If your dog just wants to chew on something and you don’t want it to be your couch, or wooden fence, this is the way to go. Our chewers love the different shapes they can chew on.

Relaxing/crate time:

Lick mats or Kongs: There are so many different shapes and varieties. These are easily washed off in the sink with hot soapy water. You can freeze these toys too.

Throwing Balls: We use only rubber balls along with the chuck it. No tennis balls, the yellow fluff layer is easily torn off and can be swallowed as well as the pieces of the rubber under it.

Tug of War: Tug of war is a fun game at daycare and dogs like to play with both humans and dogs. Just keep an eye on your dog so they don’t start eating the rope toy.

Balls to chase: Kong jumbler large/medium: These toys come in different sizes and shapes and bounce differently than regular balls.

Extra stimulation: Dogs that herd or need a job do well with this toy. It’s super annoying sounds (don’t say I didn’t warn you) stimulate your dog to chase it. We have continually thrown it on the hard concrete floor, and it hasn’t broken yet.

The links below will take you to the products that we specifically use.

Pet Care Industry Standards

I've started researching pet care industry standards. What I've found may shock you! I'm shocked. I thought there were industry standards and a code of ethics in pet care. I was sorely mistaken.
