Dogs are very energetic animals. They need to spend a lot of time: walking, training, playing. To ensure that your personal belongings and furniture are not "involved" in dog entertainment, you need to buy toys for your pet. In the pet stores there is a wide range of products for animals, including many different bones, ropes, balls - all these are toys for dogs. You can buy them without problems, they are always available. However, they are not very cheap. If you like to make different things, then you can easily make toys for dogs with your own hands.
For sure the dog will like a toy made of wood. That the entertainment object does not become dangerous, it is necessary to observe some rules. To make toys for dogs, you need to choose hardwood. Excellent beech, maple, birch, poplar, walnut or ash. Coniferous trees are best not to use, because they contain resin, which can get to the dog on the coat. Do not use a soft tree - the puppy can crack such a thing and get hurt with chips. To completely protect a wooden bauble for your pet, you need to sew it with dense skin or some rough cloth. Also worth thinking about the size of the future toys for dogs. It must be longer than the distance from the ground to the muzzle of the animal to avoid injury.
Of course, all dogs love bones. This is one of their favorite treats. Choose a bone that the puppy can not gnaw, otherwise sharp debris can injure the esophagus or intestine of the animal. Do not give the dog bones of mutton or poultry. Pigs are also best avoided because of the high fat content, which can trigger upset stomach. It is best for a dog to fit bones of a cow or a horse, scapula, horns and hooves.
A very affordable and fascinating toy for a dog is an ordinary plastic bottle. Bottles roll well on the floor, they make interesting sounds that puppies like very much. In addition, you can put a bone in, which will for a long time attract the attention of your "baby", but he will not be able to gnaw it.

Before you give the bottle to the dog, do not forget to remove the lid and plastic ring from it.
