How to Buy a Toy for a Puppy

By eHow Pets Editor


several different types of puppy toys so you can rotate them or replace them when your puppy destroys them.

Things You'll Need:

  • Canvas Dog Toys
  • Dog Balls With Handles
  • Dog Bones
  • Dog Toys
  • Dog Treats
  • Fleece Dog Toys
  • Holiday Dog Toys
  • Rawhide Chews For Dogs
  • Rope Dog Toys
  • Vinyl Dog Toys
  • Nylabones


Step 1:

Know that puppies love to chew. If you don't provide a puppy with adequate chew toys, she'll start chewing furniture and shoes.

Step 2:

Choose at least five toys for your puppy, and rotate them so she doesn't get bored.

Step 3:

Select toys that are made specifically for dogs, not for children or cats.

Step 4:

Buy a few vinyl squeak toys, but monitor play to be sure your puppy doesn't chew pieces off and choke.

Step 5:

Look at the fleece toys available. Puppies like these because they're soft and warm. Be sure pieces of fleece don't come off.

Tips & Warnings

  • Buy some holiday toys for your puppy. You'll see a variety, including Santas, candy canes and reindeer.
  • Look for puppy toys in pet stores, grocery stores, discount stores and online.
  • Don't forget that a stick is sometimes the best toy of all!
  • Never leave children's toys where your puppy can reach them. They're a choking hazard.
  • Throw out any dog toys that tear or begin to come apart at all. The pieces could come off and choke your puppy.
