Useful Tips on Using Dog Toys For Training Your Dog

>> 1/31/09

Dog training is an important aspect of growing up for dogs. Most of the dog trainings are basically behavioral training and can improve the temperament of your dog immensely.

There are many people who don’t understand the importance of dog training, which can be translated as play sessions especially when you have a young dog or a puppy at home. There are different types of games that can be played by you and your dog and in the process, you will learn to understand each other and respect the other.

Dog training will not only ensure that your puppy grows up to find pleasure, happiness and enjoyment with you and other humans as well but it will also help build a stronger bond of mutual trust between you and your dog. This will also lay the foundations for any future dog training. First things first, you need to understand when and how can you make your dog play more often and what dog toys can be used for playing or dog training.

Types of dog toys that you can use:

There are different types of dog toys available in a pet supply store but you can use them all. There are several types of dog toys that are instrumental for effective dog training. Here is a guide to some of the dog toys that are available and can be used:

Activity Dog Toys: These dog toys include babble balls, rainbow balls etc and are intended to provide encouragement to your dog towards playing and especially help them to play on their own when you are not available. Some of these dog toys can even hold dog treats. Some of the dog toys have been created in such a way that they will need your dog to use their intelligence and they will learn to experiment too in order to get the treat. One such toy is Kongs, which are flexible rubber products. They have a small hole within them from where you can fill treats into them. Such dog toys are well suited for your dog when he is left alone or even for those dogs that are highly under-stimulated.

Dog Chew Toys: Chewing is a habit for dogs especially for pups. It is essential for your dog to chew so that their teeth and jaws can be healthy. These dog toys can also be used as a distraction especially when they are bored. Hence, these dog toys are used for increasing the concentration of your dog and at the same time provide him with excess energy. Dog chew toys will focus mostly on the natural chewing instinct of your dog.

Play Toys: These are dog toys that are used to help your dog play with themselves as well as with other dogs and even with you. Different dog breeds are good at different activities like fetching etc. These dog toys can help your dog to focus on their specific activity and in turn hone their skills.
