Here are some tips to help make your dog’s playtime as safe as it is entertaining:
  • Don’t choose toys with any small parts
  • Be sure the toy is durable enough for your dog’s chewing strength and level of play
  • If your dog likes to attack squeakers or pull out stuffing, avoid toys that contain these hazards
  • Make sure the toy is made specifically for dogs
  • If your dog tries to tear or shred the toy, replace it with a more durable choice
  • “Dog proof’ the toys by removing any potential choking hazards, such as string, ribbons or buttons
