Labrador Retrievers are known for being silly, playful, and loving pets. There’s nothing they prefer more than running around the park, chewing anything they can get their paws on and playing with their favorite toys. And of course, as a loving devoted doggie owner, you want to make sure you’re buying them the best toys for labs. But which ones are they?
What to look for when buying Labrador toys?
Actually, this doesn’t have to be specific to dog toys for labs. When buying dog toys for any pup it’s important you look at its durability and how it’s made. If your pup is a particular chewer, rubber and rope are great options that will withstand playtime. It’s also worth considering whether the materials are machine or dishwashable. That’s particularly necessary after a muddy park session.
The size of the toy is also really important. Small objects aimed as a game for a puppy could be a choking hazard for a larger pup. Likewise, large toys won’t be as fun for smaller dogs as they won’t really be able to pick them up or give them a good chew!
You also need to think about the type of games you will be doing with your dog. Where will you play? What will you be playing to? Who else will you be playing with? If you want some ideas, we recommend this article about 9 backyard dog training games.
