Dog Blog: Toy Benefits
Layla’s Dog Blog
Hello! I am “doggy Layla”, your four-pawed friend talking to you. Here I share my photo with you.
This time I would like to give you some tips when buying a “dog toy” for your pet.
Firstly, Why do we need a Dog Toy?
As you know, we love to be with humans. We like that our owners pay attention to us and give us time going for a walk, play and pet.
For this reason, playing with us with different toys we will get a high level of bonding with you and you will make us very very happy.
Besides, if you have more dogs, toys might help us to bond, have fun, be happy and become little-friends 🙂
As well as humans, doggies also need to be healthy, so, exercise is the most important for us too. Running trying to catch our toys is really healthy for us. Each time that you throw any toy you dare us to catch it in the air or go and look for it, as a result, we run and jump keeping us active which prevent us from being obese and ill. Furthermore, you and me get fun playing together 🙂
As humans are quite busy, you can not be brushing our teeth each time that we eat or bite something, for this reason, toys that provide dental health improvement and cleaning are a good invest.
There are toys that help to encourage chewing, which stimulates saliva and diminishes plaque and tartar, as a result they prevent us from teeth infections.
As you know, intellectual stimulation can keep us distractive because we are intrigued with our toy and all our attention is on it in order to get what we want. Additionally, intellectual stimulation also helps puppies to be trained, consequently we don’t destroy your stuff, we learn to be obedient and easy going. Moreover, after playing we spent so much energy and then we can relax better.
As a dog, I can tell you that it’s important to understand the benefits of each toy.
Toys can be helpful to exercise us or train us intellectually because they stimulate us when we interact with them.
Additionally, when we play with humans, we create and we strengthen our ties with our owners.
It is crucial that you often check our toys in order to see if they are still safe for us and in good conditions.
Moreover, materials are important in order to avoid any damage to us. There are certain harmful components that are dangerous for us, therefore please read that packaging instructions and elements they have.

Unfortunately for humans, we “dogs” tend to be destructive and chew shoes, socks. furnitures and much more 🙁 so, a good solution for you would be to provide us with teething-chew-toys that could avoid us to destroy your personal things. At the same time that this type of toys will be fun for us, it helps us to clean our beautiful teeth controlling tartar and plaque buildop. These toys usually are non-toxic cotton and rubber and there is a vast options like ropes, balls, chewing toys, plush, stuffed and squeaky toys. Please don’t forget to read the pack in order to see if the toy is non-toxic.
This toy can help like a training aid because we spent our time chewing it and you can throw it for us and we will try to catch it in the air. While we do this, barking and whining can be avoided It can be fun and we spent hours enjoying it. Additionally, these toys might help us to relax and reduce anxiety. Some toys produce noises that draw our attention and the good news for you is that you can wash them whenever you consider it is already very dirty.
It helps us to be active running behind the ball trying to catch it when humans throw them. It stimulates exercise and fun at the same time because due to its material it has high-bounce and buoyant. Moreover, it is easy to clean and there are different sizes which give you the opportunity to choose the right ball for your doggy.
It is also a good option for us because it is fun due to its bouncing and at the same time it helps us to exercise our jaws. Likewise, humans can fill it with croquettes or little cookies (any training treat) and we have to find the way to take them out from the toy. That is really so much fun for us. We enjoy it a lot!
It is usually rubber made which is strong, so it lasts so much time. Although it is strong it is also flexible and pretty safe for us.
This toy is amazing for us because we can play tug of war, fetch and chew it. It comes in different sizes, so any dog can get what suits it better. With it’s fibers our teeth can be cleaned as well.
Beef/Chicken/Bacon Flavored Chew Toy
It is delicious for us because it has real bacon flavor
This ball is really amazing for us because we can interact with a toy which keeps our delicious treats, cookies or kibbles. We play with it and at the same time we make an effort to get the treats inside. It’s so much fun. Humans can dare us and intrigate us by changing the level of diffiulty to obtain our treats hehe 🙂
This toy is made by hard plastic and it is kinda loud but if you don’t want us to make any noise, you can get a mat for us and we will play in silence.
These toys are a challenge for us, therefore they help us to stimulate our brain. Some toys that might help are puzzles, dispensers, catching toys, sticky toys and obstacle games.
Now that you know why we need toys, the benefits and the different type of toys that exist, you can choose the right one for your dog.
Good luck and keep your doggy safe please!
Thank you so much for taking care of your dog and for your time reading me 🙂
