8 Factors on Choosing Dog Toys for your Dog
Pay Attention to Your Dog – Your dog’s behavior plays a vital role in what type of toys to choose from. It’s important to observe your dog; determine what he does for fun and how he plays.
Age – Choose an age-appropriate and developmental stage toys for your dog. Young pups like to chew, active dogs enjoy tugging toys and some dogs just love to snuggle up with soft toys.
Size – Make sure to choose toys that are large enough for your dog to carry; not too small that your dog can accidentally swallow and choke.
Purpose – Treat your dog with different types of toys such as chew toys, fetching/tugging toys, interactive toys, and plush toys.
Chewing Preference – Dogs have a natural urge to chew. Chewing can help relieve stress and dog boredom. Some chewing toys provide dental stimulation and help to keep your dog teeth and gums healthy. Chewing is an important activity for your dog to engage in; choose the right size, texture, and kind of chew toy.

Texture – The texture of a toy creates a unique play experience for your dog. Typically, smaller dogs like smooth and soft toys, while bigger ones like the rougher toys.
Noise preference – It can be annoying for pet parents but many dogs love the noise that comes from biting a squeaky toy. Seeing a dog go nuts on a squeaky toy is so much fun to watch. KORU BEAR loves BARK’s toys stuffed with sturdy and multiple squeakers.
