The other thing to consider when buying a dog toy is safety: The things which are usually the most attractive are sometimes the most dangerous to them. Dog proofing involves removing string, rubber bands, children’s toys and anything that could be considered a swallowing hazard. Toys should be appropriate to the size of the dog. Toys which are too small can be easily swallowed and could become lodged in the dog’s throat.

It is advisable to rotate the weekly routine of play by making only a few toys available at a time. If the dog has a favorite one, then you may want to leave it out all the time. For the young and untrained dogs, interactive play also offers the opportunity for socialization by teaching them how to behave.
