Are your new puppy’s toys too small? Here are a few things to consider when searching for the correct toys to help keep your new furry friend entertained and safe.
1. Bigger Is Better
Instead of worrying about when your puppy will outgrow their golf ball-sized toy, simply purchase larger toys that they can grow into. Small toys are a huge choking hazard, particularly those tiny rawhide bones which can be shredded and swallowed easier.
2. Switching Out Toys
Some pet owners purchase smaller toys with the intention of simply switching them out for more appropriate-sized toys once their dog has grown up a bit. However, even if you remember to switch out all the small toys you can find, you never know if your dog has hidden a toy for later use. Save yourself time, money, and worry by just buying the larger toys in the first place.
3. The Bottom Line…
Yes, small toys can be cute, but unless your puppy is a tiny breed like a Chihuahua or a teacup Poodle, it is best to buy larger toys that they can grow into. Otherwise, you may not realize that your pup has outgrown a toy until it is too late.
