Pragya T
Dogs have the habit of making mincemeat of any toy you give to them, and many dogs, if they don't find anything to chew on, will start chewing even the household items. However, most toys available at the supermarket for your pets can't withstand the hardships of your pet's usage, and so have a very short life. But, instead of having to buy toys all the times for your pet, you can actually spend money on the indestructible toys which are very tough and last for a long time.

Shopping Tips
Remember these tips when buying safe and durable pet toys.
  • Ensure that the toys you are going to buy for your dog are big enough, as your dog can choke on small-sized toys.
  • The most popular toys for dogs are balls. So always buy a ball that is larger than a tennis ball. Indestructible dog balls that are larger than tennis balls are safe for your dog to play and chew on.
  • Indestructible plush dog toys are not such a good idea as they are not very durable. Also, your pet might chew on the stuffed toy and break it open and swallow the stuffing. The stuffing might not be made of safe materials, so try to avoid buying plush toys.
  • Try to avoid using any raw hide, animal hooves, or pig ears as dog chew toys. Because these are not appropriate or safe, as your dog might gnaw on these objects and choke on small portions of these objects.
  • A good choice are Rubber Kong toys. They are available in many varieties. Also dogs can't break these toys into smaller parts so the possibility of a dog accidentally swallowing or choking on them is reduced.
