You can have a lot of fun picking out dog toys and its ok to indulge yourself. Just be sure that you only choose safe, sturdy toys and always supervise your precious pup’s playtime to make sure no accidents happen.
Dogs and puppies have very short attention spans, and if they're surrounded by toys they'll most likely play with each for 10 seconds and then decide the leg of the coffee table looks more interesting!
To help avoid boredom and sensory overload it's a good idea to rotate the toys that Max has available to play with each day. For example if you have a dozen dog toys, give Max 4 toys one day and keep the rest in a toybox (where he can't get at them) or in a cupboard. The next day pick up those toys, put them away and replace them with a different 4. Then just keep repeating that sequence.
Well, now you know all about choosing dog toys, off you go and have fun. You may want to set a budget though - just so as you don't blow next week’s grocery money, those dog toys can be irresistible!
