Playtime is your pup’s favorite time. Your dog needs play for his overall health and happiness. Dogs are pack animals, requiring physical play with you and other dogs. One of the most important benefits of doggie play is that it’s a bonding opportunity for you and your canine companion. Another benefit of pup play is exercise. Dogs require exercise – whether it’s walking or running – to stay in physical shape. Staying physically active can keep your dog from gaining weight, and the pressure that puts on puppy joints at bay.
Playtime is also a great opportunity for puppy teaching moments. You can train your dog through play, and with dog toys.

Frequently Asked Questions about Dog Toys
What are the best dog toys?
The best dog toys will vary depending on life stage, personality, habits, preference and even health considerations. Chew toys work well for puppies and adult dogs alike, but some dogs are tough chewers and may require extra-strong construction. Fetch toys encourage exercise and interaction with you, while interactive toys help stimulate canines mentally and keep them interested.
What are the safest dog toys?
The safest dog toys for dogs who like to chew are chew-resistant and squeak-less toys, as regular toys can sometimes break down into small pieces and pose a choking hazard. All the toys we offer are made to be safe, but you should always supervise your dog during play.
How do you clean dog toys?
Clean dog toys by handwashing them with soap and warm water, or follow care directions on the packaging if they’re included. Some rubber and nylon toys can even go in the dishwasher for easy and thorough cleaning. Avoid using cleaning wipes and sprays on dog toys, as some contain toxic chemicals that may be hazardous for your pup to ingest.
