- Look for toys that are indestructible: Hard nylon or hard rubber toys are the best for dogs. Watch the edges as they could be fairly sharp. Make sure there are no large chunks that are broken off. Avoid soft rubber toys as well.
- Keep an eye on tope toys: Toys that are made of hard rubber or nylon that are connected together by a thick rope that can be okay for a while. But, keep your eyes on the tope in order to make sure it remains intact.
- Avoid toys with bells: Squeakers on the inside and toys that have bells on are not really great for dogs as your dog might just rip the bells off or swallow them.
- Watch for rips and tears: Toys that are well constructed with plush and thick fabric should be bought. But if they break or tear at a seam, it's time to throw them away and buy new and better ones.
- Find the right size toy: Sometimes, dog owners end up buying toys that are too large for a small dog or too small for a big dog. Either way, you must avoid buying an inappropriately sized toy for your dog. Buy toys of the right size for your dog so that it doesn't defeat its purpose.
- Dental chews: These kind of toys are very famous and are fairly safe as well. The toy companies have changed the manufacturing process in order to allow these dental chews to dissolve and soften once in contact with saliva. However, stick with the good brands.
