Many people ask this question regarding dog toys. Squeaky toys are a great way to get the play out of your dog. We always like to recommend soft squeak toys for small dogs with the exception of round rubber squishy squeak balls that are the size of a golf ball or less as they can get lodged in your dogs throat or digestive tract. This is especially important for medium to large size dogs. We have seen and heard of so many cases with dogs at home that accidentally swallow the slippery squishy balls and they can't breath or they have a digestive tract issue. Kong toys, always a great toy and if you get a hallow kong, you can put peanut butter in it and freeze it. On a day you decide to go out for a few hours or at night trying to sleep you can entertain your dog with hours of jaw chewing and licking activity while he or she try's to get the peanut butter out of the Kong. Great way to tire your pup out.
