How to choose a toy for a dog?

In one of our articles, we talked about why dogs need toys. The more toys a pet has, the happier it is. However, it is not enough to purchase a few different models. It is important to choose the right ones! Our tips will help determine which toy to buy a dog.
Why are special toys needed?
“My dog ​​enjoys playing with street sticks and rolls a children’s ball. She does not need special toys! ”, – such a statement can be heard from the newcomer owner. But experienced dog breeders and specialists from the zoosphere will answer in chorus that you only need to purchase toys from pet stores and only from trusted manufacturers.

Children’s toys and other items not intended for playing with the dog are dangerous to its health. Sticks from the street can be infected with parasites, pathogens and contain reagents. The balls, for example, are coated with paint and made of a material that should never be bitten or swallowed.

What are the dog training courses?

A trained dog is not only a reason for pride, but also a guarantee of safety for both the pet itself and everyone around it. But that is not all. For centuries, people have been selecting dogs with various inclinations and abilities – they made different breeds that can be conditionally divided into shepherds, hunting (gundogs, hounds), security, service and companion dogs. These dogs, like humans, need to exercise their abilities in order to be happy. And the right training technique allows you to discover and develop their natural talents. This, you see, is much nicer and more useful than raising a “sofa” pet.
You can do the training yourself. But this requires experience and a lot of time, especially when it comes to medium and large breeds. In any case, the result of “home” training loses to specialized courses.

That is why special courses are in such demand. In our article we will talk about the five most popular programs. Continue reading
