Pet Gadgets You Must Have

Some days Sutton (Chihuahua mix, 8 pounds, 1 year) has so much puppy energy left over from dog-park play that she just runs around the apartment, digs out all of her toys from the toy bin, and squeaks anything she can find for hours on end.

Squeaky bone, dog toys, dog play, handmade, handcrafted dog toys, dog toy, dog stimulate toy, puppy toy, puppy fun, beasty toys, small dog.

Ultra ball is one of the best outdoor dog toys you can find that is made of natural rubber and is completely non-toxic for dogs.

Many dog owners swear by these chews, which can be stuffed into certain interactive toys (like the Qwizl above!) and provide hours of chewing distraction (though some dogs will polish one off in mere minutes!).

Hard rubber toys such as Nylabone® and Kong®-type products come in many shapes and sizes and are fun for chewing and carrying around.

Touted as the "world's tuff-est soft dog toy," these toys can usually stand up to some pretty good chewing and games of tug of war.

Chewing is good for your dog’s mental and physical health, so it’s important that you provide them with plenty of safe and appropriate things to chew on.

And giving this chewing activity to a puppy will help her to ease into life with you; should that be to alleviate boredom, ease her separation anxiety, help clean her teeth, or just prevent her from chewing on your shoes, this one bone could help with all of the above.

Now that you've figured out your dog's "chews-onality," take a look at the general types of chews and toys that are most likely to be safe and entertaining for your pup's chewing style.

This highly durable chew toy is great for the overactive chewing puppy.

It’s made of a durable rubber that will make the fetch games all the more fun for bouncing, and the holes along the sides make it a perfect toy for a bit of tug of war when your pup brings it back.

Just watch out that your dog doesn’t destroy and swallow pieces of their tennis balls, and check regularly to make sure the abrasive felt of the tennis ball isn’t wearing down the enamel on your dog’s teeth (this could expose the tooth root and pulp, necessitating a tooth extraction or root canal).

No matter what toy you select for your puppy, it’s important to watch them when they play, and to check the toys occasionally to make sure your puppy hasn’t bitten off any chunks.

You’ll want to make sure he’s no longer in the teething phase when you give your pup this toy, because its durability is as strong as the Nylabone makes.

The interior ball even squeaks, and the handles on either side of the football make it easier for your dog to pick up and shake or for you to grab to play tug of war.

As a dog owner, you have to make sure that your dog gets the best durable dog toys to take on all that chewing.

Tennis balls make great dog toys for fetching, but don’t stand up to chewing very well.

This fun little teething toy will brush between your pup’s teeth, and popping little treats among the rubber teeth will make sure that she enjoys the process.
