Unstuffed Plush Dog Toys: A Pet Guardians Prayer Answered
How many of you dog guardians have a dog or dogs that love “the kill”?
I am referring to a new toy of course.
While shopping for a surprise to take home for Fido or FeFe, we become almost childlike in our choices. We choose the shape, the color, the fabric, we ooh and ahh over the options until we feel confident in our selection.
We walk in the door with anticipation to hand this new special toy over to our beloved furry companion in hopes of making their day just a little bit better.
As they tenderly take the new toy from your hand, ears up, tail wagging and run off to bond with their new friend, you feel fulfilled. Mission accomplished.
But the moment fades quickly as just minutes later you see a mound of white fuzzy stuffing covering your pets face, and a pile surrounding a now mutilated body of the once known as a toy.
I must add that it is actually unbelievable the amount of stuffing that comes out of this tiny object.
I know because I have one of those dogs.
Rest assured that Fido or FeFe actually did love the moment, for you the task of pulling the stuffing from your dogs mouth, cleaning up and filling a trash can with a substance of foreign matter the disappointment follows from your efforts and the thrill is gone.
Many dogs just have an instinct to act out in this manner, especially when there is a squeaky toy located within the body of the toy, they must kill this alien at all cost. There is no stopping them.
If you are use to the rountine and just go about your ritual, honestly your concern must not be about the destruction of the toy, it needs to be focused on the substance than lurks within the toy.
99% of the materials/fillings used in animal’s toys are toxic substances. The stuffing can wreak havoc on their digestive system if swallowed and there is no way that during the kill your pet is not swallowing some of this waste.
Toys can be harmful to your pets and there is extensive information on this subject available. I am focusing on the stuffing in this article today, but be aware that it is not just the guts of the toy that can be harmful. It is the texture inside and out that make the whole, it is the tags, the attached eyes, nose, plastic squeekers and more.
You must do your homework,learn what to watch out for, read labels, be clear that this toy is in contact with nothing but your pets mouth. Simple solution: animal toys should be made of a natural substance.
Being in a large city like Los Angeles, we have many outlets and options to find all natural, non toxic toys for our animals, unlike many suburban areas. But no matter you live options are available with a simple search on-line.
Dog toys play an important role in your dog’s life from temperament to wellbeing. Since they are always in their mouths, it is important to provide natural, organic, safe toys for play time.Realizing the significance pet toys present to your dog’s overall wellbeing and happiness it is our responsibility as dog owners to provide the safest environment for our dogs.
