Some dogs love soft toys while others prefer hard toys, some love to gnaw on our favorite pair of shoes (dogs just somehow know which ones they are), and some love to sniff around the yard all day. It really depends on our fur buddy\u0026#39;s varying personalities but there is one major thing all these adorable furballs have in common; they all love to play! This is why dog parents must provide toys for their fur babies (Unless you want another pair of your cool sneakers to be a part of the gnawed-out pile) and apart from that one perk owners gain when they provide toys for their doggies, those furry tails will sure wag like crazy out of happiness and gratitude towards you! Here are a few dog toys your doggie will absolutely love! Interactive toys - Textured rubber balls, tug toys, and a whole lot of interactive dog toys will not only keep your fur buddy happy but can also dramatically decrease your dog\u0026#39;s anxiety and boredom with the physical and mental stimulation these toys provide. Squeaky toys - Squeaky ball toys are very ideal for toning down your dog\u0026#39;s initial instinct to bite down hard because the slight bite your dogs make on a squeaky toy can immediately create a sound that triggers its gratifying auditory reward and when your dog bites down on other things after then it\u0026#39;ll instinctively bit down lightly. Sniff mats - The use of sniff mats is actually more of a calming exercise for your dog rather than a vigorous and playful activity, it can help them relax if they are stressed or had a stressful event and by putting a few surprises treats in it then your buddy can have a gratifying effect that can make your pet happy. Toys do not only preoccupy your pet but they can even do as much as alleviating stress and aggressive behavior. They are absolute essentials in providing mental and physical stimulation to keep your furry buddy healthy and happy!
