Exercise is the primary reason why many dog owners are buying toys. Throwing a ball helps keep activity rigorous and fun for both you and your dog. Exercise is a crucial part of having a healthy dog because, without adequate activity, a dog can become obese and fall prey to many illnesses.
2. Intellectual Stimulation
Despite being “domesticated,” dogs can quickly become bored. There is a saying that a “tired dog is a good dog,” and this is particularly true for working breeds such as border collies.
Without adequate intellectual stimulation, dogs can become destructive, disobedient, and downright impossible to handle. However, with a combination of exercise and mental stimulation, even the most high energy dog can relax.
A great way to bond with your dog is to engage in playtime with their favorite toys. Toys also promote bonding in multiple-dog households by helping dogs bond with each other and understand their place in your home’s hierarchy.
4. Dental Health
A fun way to improve dental health and reduce the need for surgical cleanings is to invest in toys designed to clean teeth as your dog plays. These toys encourage chewing, which stimulates saliva and diminishes plaque, reduces its recurrence, and helps prevent a tooth infection.
