Dogs love to play. Supplying dogs with toys to play with is necessary to ensure the health and wellness of your pup. Toys are not a luxury for your dog, but rather a requirement. Playtime is a crucial part of their emotional and intellectual health. Behavioral troubles, such as biting on items, can form when your pup does not have the appropriate channels to follow their impulse.
Buying your dog a toy is a great way to help prevent boredom when you are not at home and prevent your dog from forming behavioral issues. Dogs are often going to play with practically anything. Nevertheless, it's encouraged to provide toys that feature a variety of uses and to alternate them each week to help keep things safe and fascinating. Training dogs to differentiate their toys from their humans possessions can stop them from biting on things they shouldn't.
How to choose dog toys:
Dog toys must be safe, fun, and sturdy. Your choice for the toys depends on the age, size, and activity level of your pet. The best time to introduce toys into your dog's daily life is when they are puppies to help them develop their teeth, muscle mass, and joints. Give puppies with toys to chomp on, chase after, bite, and pull as one method of helping them in thriving. Puppies with baby teeth are going to require toys with a softer composition.
Another essential aspect when purchasing dog toys is the overall size of the toy in relation to the size of your dog. Too little of a toy is especially unsafe with the danger of swallowing and choking. The toy you choose for your pet must be appropriate for your dogs current size. Picking the best dog toy will certainly ensure both a safe and enjoyable playtime. Safety needs to always come first, followed by entertainment when picking toys for your dog.
It's important to observe your dog while they have fun with their toys. Visually examine their toys regularly to check that it has not been harmed to pose a danger of choking. Get rid of any toy that is damaged.

So impressed and happy with happy pooch! My dog came home looking absolutely adorable and happy to boot with her haircut. The whole process was straightforward and so positive. Very happy to have found this place and will definitely be back.
I cannot tell you how much I appreciate Melissa at Happy Pooch. We adopted Oscar from the Whatcom Humane Society in September and he is very reactive to new people because he is partially blind.
I really needed to get his nails trimmed and the vet recommended Happy Pooch. I was able to make an appointment very easily. I had explained about Oscar’s reactivity so she gave us an appointment at the end of the day when there wouldn’t be a bunch of clients or dogs around.
I brought Oscar in, and as predicted, he barked at Melissa and her assistant, Madelyn. Melissa was very very patient with Oscar, giving him treats and speaking to him calmly and gently. She knew exactly how to work with him!!
She led us to a back room where it was quiet and we wouldn’t encounter any other “triggers”. She really took her time letting Oscar relax and we were eventually able to get his nails clipped with lots of treats and encouragement!
I am so grateful for Melissa. She is very experienced and very kind! We bought a punchcard and Oscar will return for regular “PETicures”!
They are always friendly and good with my little pooch, he has a lot of anxiety problems.
Happy Pooch is always making my fur baby look her best! They are timely, professional and super helpful!
Very reasonable prices, great selection of toys, treats, and food, and fantastic staff.
