  1. Puppy loves chewing on syringe...

    General Dog Forum
    We bought my puppy some toys, rubber, plushie, etc. so there’s a variety he could choose from. But the thing he likes the most is the syringe; the one I use to give him vitamins. He likes his vitamins so much, even the Cetirizine the vet prescribed. I’m guessing he likes they syringe as his toy...
  2. Tough Toys For Small Breeds?

    First Time Dog Owner and Basic Questions
    Finnlee is tearing up all his toys. He's a 15 week old Chihuahua/Papillon mix. He's got toys torn to bits in 30 minutes. Which is normal but are there any that last longer so he and I get our money's worth? Would toys for tough chewers be okay? I was thinking they would be too hard with his...

  4. Increasing Toy Drive?

    Dog Training Forum
    Short version: how do I increase toy drive in a dog who likes toys but is too distracted to play with them much outside of the house? Long version: My dog plays with a variety of toys but once we're out of the house he finds them much less interesting than the ultra aggressive mcdonalds-eating...
  5. Crate toys? How many?

    General Dog Forum
    Hello, I have an 8 week old Goldendoodle who is having a tough time with his crate when we are gone. When we are home he will go in and out of it easily, but won't stay in it. We lock him in there and he flips out while we are walking around for about 15 minutes. Then settles but every time we...
  6. Where do you keep your puppies/dog toys?

    First Time Dog Owner and Basic Questions
    Hello! This is probably a really dumb question,... but we are about to bring our puppy home in 2 weeks, and we have bought a bunch of toys to keep her active, and I am wondering what to put them in? I want something that is still accessible for her to get at them. (We also have three...
  7. Not Sleeping Through the Night (Pup or Owners)

    First Time Dog Owner and Basic Questions
    My boyfriend and I have had our pup, Ruby, for almost a month now and we absolutely adore her; however...I can't remember the last time I had a full night of sleep. This isn't surprising - we totally expected this, but we anticipated the lack of sleep lasting for as long as house training was...

  10. Dangerous Rope Toys

    Dog Health Questions
    We've all heard the horror stories about rope toys and the damage they can do to a dogs GI tract. I've always kept rope toys away from my dog until the other day while at the dog park, a lady presented my dog with a long rope toy. Within 2 seconds, the large rope disappeared down her gullet. She...

    First Time Dog Owner and Basic Questions
    Along with Nylabones and Kong toys for puppy Desi, yesterday I got a softer, natural, small, rope-style toy (no stuffing) for him to chew. He likes it. Is this okay as long as he is supervised...not left alone in his crate with it? Pet store person told me it's not harmful if pup swallows some...
  12. New puppy and resident dog.. Pup has toy guarding issues..

    Dog Training Forum
    Hey guys so I have a rescue, Bailey, that I've had for almost two years. We just got a 13 week old pup last week, and I found out rather quickly that the puppy has a guarding issue with squeaky toys. He does not have a guarding issue with us, only with the resident dog. And he doesn't have a...

    Hi there, I'd like some opinions on the different puzzle toys. I have two different shaped stuffable kong toys. One bone shaped and very open and the other ball shaped with two openings (one very narrow crumb-sized and the other dollar coin (loonie) sized. The ball is useful, the bone is only...

  15. Getting my dog interested in toys?

    Dog Training Forum
    I just adopted a 2 year old dog, probably a lab/pitt mix. He's actually shockingly well behaved and trained for a shelter dog, but there are still some quirks about him I haven't quite figured out. One of them being that I'm not sure how to effectively occupy him while he is alone. So far, it...
  16. New dog, new owners, some questions

    First Time Dog Owner and Basic Questions
    We adopted an 8yo Standard American Eskimo 5 days ago. For the most part, things have been going very well - he is exceptionally well behaved, absolutely adorable, walks well with the exception of some barrier/leash aggression that is already showing improvement. Snowball is not crate trained...
  17. make your own dog toys - safe material

    General Dog Forum
    Seriously, I need to be a dog toy designer. I'm annoyed with the offerings out there. Some are fine, but crazy expensive for something that is so easily destroyed. Ok, so I look at these toys and wonder if they are using special ropes or special fabric. If so, where can I get this tuff...
  18. Destructive Behavior in Crate

    Dog Training Forum
    Hello. I'm asking about my Lab/weim mix today. Need some insight, as I've never had this issue before. Both my lab mixes spend time in their crate. I do let them out to exercise and play, and/or be in the house with us. They are still puppies, though, so it depends on the day and how...
  19. Silly dog...

    General Dog Forum
    I am looking for fun ways to play with my dog and nice activities to keep him busy. The thing is that he doesn't like tennis balls, sticks, squeakies, and generally any other toy that I have presented to him. He plays fetch every now and then because I taught him to do so, but he doesn't seem to...

    Dog Training Forum
    I have a VERY active puppy (9 months) that is a lab/beagle mix. The problem is that he eats (and not just chews actually swallows) everything! I've tried every toy out there, kongs, bones, nyla-bones, etc and he destroys and eats them all in no time.He even eats his crate and any bedding we put...
