Dogs love to play. Supplying dogs with toys to play with is necessary to ensure the health and wellness of your puppy. Toys are not a luxury for your dog, but rather a necessity. Playtime is a vital component of their emotional and cognitive health and well-being. Behavioral troubles, such as gnawing on items, can arise when your pup does not have the appropriate channels to follow their intuition.
Getting your dog a toy is a great way to help fight boredom when you are not at home and avoid your dog from developing behavioral problems. Dogs are frequently going to play with just about anything. Nonetheless, it's highly recommended to give toys that offer a range of uses and to rotate them regularly to keep things safe and fascinating. Training dogs to differentiate their toys from their humans items can stop them from chewing on things they should not.
How to choose dog toys:
Dog toys need to be safe, fun-filled, and long lasting. Your selection for the toys relies on the age, size, and activity level of your dog. The ideal time to introduce toys into your dog's daily life is when they are pups to help them develop their teeth, muscular tissues, and joints. Provide pups with toys to gnaw on, chase after, bite, and tug as one means of helping them in developing. Pups with baby teeth are going to require toys with a softer texture.
Another essential aspect when buying dog toys is the proportions of the toy in regard to the size of your dog. Too small of a toy is especially dangerous with the threat of swallowing and choking. The toy you give your dog needs to be appropriate for your dogs current size. Picking the best dog toy will certainly ensure both a safe and enjoyable playtime. Safety needs to always come first, followed by enjoyment when picking toys for your dog.
It's important to monitor your dog while they play with their toys. Visually inspect their toys occasionally to check that it has not been harmed to present a threat of choking. Remove and replace any toy that is broken.

We recently switched our dog to raw food, and Mark (the owner) was a great help in navigating all the various options. He helped us find the right food when I was struggling to figure it out on my own. Check out the nutrition planning option on their website if you need help. They have all kinds of high quality food options, toys, etc. Everyone at the store is friendly and helpful!
We love The Urban Dog! 🐶 Our Goldendoodle started seeing Shannon when she was 3 months old and we’ve been happy with every visit. She really created a positive grooming experience for our young dog. The staff in the store are always eager to help and friendly 😊
I have no words to express how wonderful this store is. I went in looking for soft treats for our chihuahua, Ollie for his last day on earth with us. I thought I was doing ok but as soon as I got in the store and explained what I was looking for I broke down in tears. The clerk not only helped me pick out the correct treats for our Ollie but then paid for it when I wasn’t looking! I have no words for the compassion and kindness he showed me that day. I will forever be a customer to The Urban Dog. They care about people and our fur families.
Ollie loved the treats too. It was a perfect send off and The Urban Dog helped make an awful experience a little less awful. Thank you so incredibly much. I still have to tell the manager how amazing the staff is.
My doodles have been going to Ashley for 2 years now and we will follow her anywhere! She’s amazing with them! They’re so cute when i pick them up and my boys love her!!
I cannot recommend this place enough! They are a small business that treats you like family while still having extensive resources to help with anything your dog needs. They were even special ordering our cat food for a while! I would still be a regular customer to this day if we hadn't moved so far away... It's one of the things we miss most about the Rochester area!
