Dogs love to chew on a fun toy. Presenting dogs with toys to play with is essential to encourage the overall health and wellness of your pup. Toys are not a luxury for your dog, but rather a basic need. Playtime is a critical element of their emotional and intellectual health and well-being. Behavioral issues, such as chewing on things, can form when your pet does not have the suitable avenues to follow their instinct.
Buying your dog a toy is a great way to help prevent boredom when you are not in the house and stop your pet from forming behavioral problems. Dogs are often ready to play with practically anything. Nonetheless, it's strongly recommended to offer toys that feature a range of uses and to alternate them regularly to try to keep things safe and fascinating. Training dogs to differentiate their toys from their humans belongings can prevent them from biting on things they shouldn't.
How to select dog toys:
Dog toys must be safe, interesting, and long lasting. Your selection for the toys depends on the age, size, and activity level of your dog. The best time to introduce toys into your dog's life is when they are pups to help them form their teeth, muscular tissues, and joints. Offer pups with toys to chomp on, go after, bite, and pull as one method of assisting them in thriving. Puppies with baby teeth are going to require toys with a softer composition.
Another important variable when buying dog toys is the proportions of the toy in regard to the size of your dog. Too tiny of a toy is particularly unsafe with the danger of swallowing and choking. The toy you choose for your dog needs to be appropriate for your dogs present size. Picking the very best dog toy will ensure both a safe and enjoyable playtime. Safety should always come first, followed by excitement when choosing toys for your dog.
It's important to observe your dog while they play with their toys. Visually inspect their toys periodically to check that it has not been harmed to pose a danger of choking. Replace any toy that is damaged.

I have a bag of Southern Barker healthy treats for our grand puppy at her parent’s home our ours. I’m a grandparent and it is hard not to give treats! I feel so much better giving the healthy treats and she LOVES them!
This place is amazing! The staff is so friendly and takes the time to listen to your concerns and answer any questions. Most importantly…my boy Goldendoodle has been loved on! He is happy when he leaves and excited to go back! Day play at Barker University left him worn out. 😊
Great products! Wonderful staff. Very knowledgeable and helpful!
Love this place!!!
I reached out to the Southern Barker to see what clothing they had in stock to fit our new pup. They were incredibly helpful and responsive. When they learned we were shopping because our dog needs to wear clothes due to scars from past abuse, they even put together a huge gift bag for her. Not only is the store adorable with tons of cute items and treats, but it’s clear to me the owner truly cares about animals and has heart for what she does. We will absolutely be back to support this local business. ❤️
