A dog's mental age is approximately the same as a 5 year old child, thus games are also essential to their physical and mental developments. Selecting the most suitable toys can keep them happy and make them feel safe, and is therefore something that owners need to learn to do. So how do we choose the right toys?

The toys currently on the market are sold by their functions and materials in the following categories:


1. Stuffed toys

This type of toy is more suitable for more gentle dogs that do not bite and tear. Note that before giving your dog this type of toy, it's important to remove small accessories such as the eyes, nose, buttons and etc that could potentially endanger your dog by accidentally ingesting. Even the inside of the toy should be inspected to make sure nothing could be swallowed by accident.

You can give the toy to your precious dog after the toy's eyes have been removed and it's been sewed up.


2. Educational toys / Anti-depressant toys

Meals or snacks can be put inside this type of toy so that your dog would have to use their brains to get to the food. This is most often used when the owner isn't home and can help the dog exert excess energy and avoid separation anxiety leading to them damaging household items.

When choosing this type of toy, please pay special attention to see if there are two small holes in the back to avoid a "vacuum phenomenon" that can cause your dog's tongue to get stuck during licking.

There was an unfortunately incident in the US once where a Golden Retriever's tongue got stuck on a badly designed toy and had to have it cut off!
