HOW TO PICK THE BEST AND SAFEST DOG TOYS

06 Mar 2024

If you’ve ever come home to see the dog toy you bought yesterday in pieces all over your house, you know how frustrating it can be. Not only is choosing the right toys for your dog is tricky, but when they don’t last more than a day, it can also be expensive! 

At Happy Staffy Co., we take your dog's chewing experience seriously. This is why we offer a variety of different toys to choose from, so you can find the perfect toy for your dog's individual needs.

But how do you know what your dog really needs?

1. Know Your Pup's Preferences:
Just like humans, every dog has its unique preferences when it comes to play. Some dogs love to chew, while others prefer interactive toys or plushies for cuddle time. Observe your pup's behavior and tailor your toy choices to match their play style. Once you know what your dog’s chewing preference is, it will be easier to choose a set of toys!

You can refer to our Toy Durability Scale to help you choose which toy box is the best for your pup.

2. Choose Toys Size-Appropriately:
Safety is paramount, and selecting toys that match your dog's size is crucial. A small toy may pose a choking hazard for larger breeds, while larger toys may be challenging for smaller dogs to handle. Happy Staffy Co. provides toys in different sizes so you can find which one suits your bestie best.

3. Opt for Durable Materials:
Dogs can be quite enthusiastic during playtime, and their toys should be able to withstand the excitement. Look for toys made from durable materials such as rubber, nylon, or tough fabric. Our Chewzilla Certified Toys are made from 100% Nylon, making them ultra tough and ideal for dogs who are known to destroy toys. 


Our toys are tried and tested by our own Staffies, making sure that each toy gives the best without compromising its purpose and fun!

4. Check for Non-Toxic Materials:
Safety extends beyond durability; it also involves choosing toys made from non-toxic materials. Dogs have a natural instinct to chew, and ensuring that the toys they interact with are free from harmful chemicals is vital. Happy Staffy Co. prioritises the use of pet-safe materials, giving you peace of mind that your dog's playtime is toxin-free.

5. Explore Interactive Options:
Stimulate your dog's mind by incorporating interactive toys into their play routine. Puzzle toys, treat-dispensing toys, and interactive fetch toys engage your pup mentally and physically, providing both entertainment and mental stimulation.`

6. Pick Toys With a Guarantee
If your dog has teeth like Jaws, you’ll not only need to choose tough toys, but you'll need to keep an eye out for products that have a guarantee. This will ensure you’re opting for the toughest toys available. Our Chewzilla Certified range comes with a 30-Day guarantee so if your dog manages to break any of the toys, we’ll replace them for free or give you your money back. 

Aside from the best chew toy range, we also have puzzle toys that can help them stay mentally active and smart!

Choosing the best and safest dog toys is an investment in your dog's happiness and well-being. By considering your pup's preferences, selecting size-appropriate and durable toys made from non-toxic materials, and incorporating interactive options, you're creating an enriching playtime experience for your furry friend.
