How to Buy The Right Fetch Toy
Playing with your dog isn't just a great way for your furbaby to get necessary exercise, it's also one of the best ways to bond with each other. A favorite pastime of pups and their people is the classic game of fetch. There's something so satisfying for your canine companion when they can chase their favorite dog toy and bring it back to you. There are so many toys out there to choose from that it can be difficult to know which ones are right for you and your pooch.
Some factors to take into consideration when choosing a fetch toy for your furry friend are age, the durability of the material, and how active his or her play is. This is important because the way a dog plays as a puppy may change as they get older. In some cases, their breed could also determine how durable a toy needs to be.
You'll want to be sure you select a toy that's designed for fetching. While some tugging toys, for example, might double as fetch toys, you'll get the best results when you use toys in the way they were intended to be played with.
Older dogs may not be able to run as far and play as long where as puppies might need something that can withstand their energy. Next you may want to think about if your dog has a specific preference for materials; they may like plush toys more than rubbery ones. As you know, your barking besties have their favorites and keeping that in mind may help you in finding something they won't quickly get tired of.
Last you'll want to consider the needs of the pet parent. Younger dogs are more active and play longer than older dogs. An older pet parent may not have the energy to continually throw a toy, so you may want to consider a launcher to give a great fetch experience, without tiring out the humans. The most important thing is if your dog likes the toy. If you know they'll react positively to a stuffed duck fetch toy versus a rubber ball that launches into the water, go with what they enjoy. You know your pooch better than anyone, and we know toys. By using our reviews to find something that will last forever and meet his or her needs, it's a winning combination!
