There's really no need to constantly buy new dog toys when you know just how to make the most of the ones you have!
Let's get to it: 1. Rotate your dog’s toys by keeping them stored away, keeping only 1 or 2 out and available for your dog. This will help keep your dog's toys interesting and avoid having to constantly buy new ones. Bringing out a toy from where they’re stored will also help get your dog’s attention as needed.
2. The toys that have little crevices and crannies like tug-and-pull toys can be used to hide kibble and treats inside of them, turning them into a mentally stimulating exercise as well.
3. Bring one or two toys with you out on your walks. There are so many distracting things going on during walks that a toy can help redirect your dog’s focus as well as give them an outlet should they ever feel tired, frustrated, or just in need of a fun break.
4. Have 2-3 Kongs lined up in the freezer, all with different flavours so you can take one out when it’s time for your puppy or dog to relax, take a break, and soothe as they lick and chew it.
5. Jam a small-sized toy or Kong through the bars of your dog’s crate and lightly line it with the flavour of a tasty treat or healthy peanut butter option. This will incentivize them to go inside their crate (do not close the door though) and spend time there in an enjoyable way.
