You may love the very cute toy that you see on line or in a pet goods store, but is it really the right toy for your dog? If you have ever made a wrong choice about atoy-and most pet owners have-you probably have adrawer, box or basket with stuff about which your dog could care less. Toys have value, but only if your cat or dog love to play with them. the purpose of toy is is to keep your dogs paws and mind occupied, to channel both physical and mental energy in constructive ways, to distract the dog from illegal items that you do not want to chewed, to act as a stress reducer, to discourage separation anxiety, to provide enrichment when the dog is confined or left alone, and to act ae rwrds for good behavior when you dont always want to use treats.
