‘Tis the season for giving and there is no better way to warm the heart of your pet loving friend than a gift that shows appreciation for their furry friends.
When purchasing for a pet, keep in mind the different needs of different animals. The size and age of your friend's pet is important when selecting an appropriate treat. A small ball can be fun for a cat or puppy, but could become a choking hazard for a large adult dog. Besides size, you also need to think about the chewing needs of the pet. If you've played with your friend's dog, you probably know how strong the dog's jaw is. Match the strength of rubber toys to the strength of the dog. The hours of chewing will be the true gift for the pet and your friend!
Soft toys can provide comfort to animals if well chosen. Cats love batting around soft mice while dogs tend to want to destroy noise makers and decorations on their fuzzy toys. Play with soft toys yourself to feel the quality of the material that protects these toy accessories. Pass up toys with embellishments such as eyes and noses that feel easy to remove by hand as well as arms, ears or other body parts that are not sewn on well enough for Fido.
