Which Type of Dog Toys Should I Get For My Puppy?
Anyone with a new puppy knows full well that they will sink their teeth into anything they possibly can. Dogs have a natural instinct to chew so it is important to provide appropriate toys - especially if you want to spare your best pair of socks!
Puppies are curious about their environment and - as they don't have hands - picking things up with their mouth and chewing is their way of exploring the new world around them.
Providing a variety of toys for your puppy is an outlet for chewing, eating and exploring. These puppy toys should help your pet explore their natural instincts.
