5 Tips for Choosing the Right Kind of Dog Chew Toy

You’ve probably heard that dogs like to chew and that is something we probably all benefit from. After all, it helps them relieve stress, and can also help lower their risk of developing dental disease. So what are the benefits of dog chews toys? I’m not going to go into too much detail here, but I do want to share some helpful tips with you on the subject.

What is a chew toy?

It is a type of toy which is specially designed to be chewed by animals for purposes of stress relief. In this blog post, we’re going to talk about dog chewing toys.

Tips for choosing the right toys for dog that chew

There are many tips you will find online regarding the dog chews toys but we have curated 5 tips that are most essentials to look into while choosing the toy:

  1. The toys should be soft enough to chew them with no teeth at risk of breaking, but durable enough so they don’t easily break into small pieces.

  2. The toys should be appropriate for your dog’s current size. As your dog grows from pup to adult, you have to change the size & durability of the dog chewing toys.

  3. The toys should not be coated or treated with flavorings that can cause digestive upset.

  4. The toys should have to be washable because they should be cleaned & disinfected now and then.

  5. Last but not the least, avoid rawhide chew toys. Well, some say, rawhide bones are good for a dog’s teeth but some rawhide bones can pose choking and blockage risks.

How do you know if your dog likes a chew toy?

It is really a difficult question to answer but I will try my best. So, I have Snowy, my little Labrador with me for the past 4 years but it’s really hard to understand which particular toy she likes or dislikes. But once I gifted her this Nylabone Extreme Wishbone, & occasionally she used to put down that toy just in front of me with the eyes of affection. So according to me, you will understand whether your dog likes the chew toy or not by judging the fact whether they share it with you or not. Often they tease you with their toy when they want to play but in a true gesture of affection, they’ll present it as a gift.

Best Dog Chew Toys

Well, in the matter of toys there is nothing which is best or worst, well every toy is best at some time. I mean think of it as your childhood days, sometimes you like Pikachu Plush Toy, or, sometimes you like spinning Beyblade. But we have still selected some chew toys categorically:

  1. Small Dog Chew Toys: For small dogs, we have selected one particular toy which is we think the best & it is Kong Extreme Dog Toy – Medium.
  2. Best Large Dog Chew Toys: For large dogs, we have selected two toys that we think are perfect.
    1. Kong Classic Dog Toy Extra Large & 2. Nylabone Dura Chew Extreme Wishbone, Original Flavor.
