Although choosing toys for your dogs seems easy, there are several things to be noted before you buy a squeaky toys for dogs.
Squeaky toys are meant to be squeaked so the squeaky sound will comes out. For dogs, the most fun way to make that happen is by chewing it.
Choosing toys for dogs has no different consideration whit choosing toys for toddlers. There are safety issues for injury/accident prevention.
The different is for dogs, they don’t have certain rules or regulation for consumer protection.
In choosing squeaky toys, you probably need to consider these:
1. What kind of material are the toys made of. If it’s from fabrics, how strong are the fabrics? Does it so easy to tear of? Squeaky toys have small thing inside that produce the squeaking sound. Squeaky toys from fabrics are usually safe until they were teared of. Your dogs could swallow small squeaky thing inside. Remove the toy when its already teared of.
If it’s from plastic, how hard or how soft is it? Toys that claim as strong and indestructible are often too hard for the dogs and can harms their gums and teeth. Try to look for toys that soft enough but made from good plastics and thick enough so it won’t be teared of easily.
2. What shape and size are the toys? Are there any accessories that attached to it? Things that too small are choking hazards for you dogs. Pointy shape will harm your dogs if it’s hard enough.
There are no ideal squeaky toys that completely save for dogs. It will be wiser to use the toys under supervision, so when its suddenly break of, you can have it removed immediately.
