The benefits of dog toys
Dog toys are of course fun, but did you know that they can also help you educate your dog? Toys promote healthy exercise, provide a mental challenge and also strengthen the bond between you and your faithful companion. Let us give you an overview of the benefits of a challenging toy for your dog:
- Physical exercise
- Mental challenge
- Rest and balance
- Natural needs
- Healthy teeth
- Promote a strong bond between pet and pet parent
- Different kinds and materials of dog toys
Is your dog a passionate ball chaser, does he love tug-of-war, does he like to cuddle or is he always up for a challenge? To find out which toy is right for you and your four-legged friend, it’s important to know what makes your dog's tail work overtime. Below you’ll find an overview of the different types of flamingo dog toys:
- Fetch toys
- Treat toys
- Intelligence and interactive toys
- Hunting toys
- Dental care and chewing toys
- Training Toys
- Tug and toss toys
- Swimming and water toys
- Special puppy toys
Discovering things is one of your little rascal's favourite pastimes. That’s why it’s important to offer your puppy different types of toys. The different shapes, materials, scents and colours accelerate a puppy's learning process. The right puppy toys can also help with other aspects of education. For example, teach your puppy the right chewing behaviour by offering him chewing toys. Or turn the dog crate into a cosy sleeping place with the help of a soft cuddly toy. Puppy toys can help you educate your pup in many ways.
The sniffing mat and other search games
Did you know that sniffing has a stress-reducing effect on dogs? The part of the brain that controls emotions is directly connected to the nasal organ. Regular sniffing has a positive effect on this part of the brain and reduces stress. A good example of this is the sniffing mat for dogs. This play mat can be filled with treats or various small dog snacks. As your dog sniffs around looking for treats, his brain automatically works in a positive way. This makes search and sniff toys not only fun and challenging, but also contributes to your dog’s mental balance and good mood.
TIP: Does your puppy have trouble calming down or is your adult dog easily overstimulated? Using a sniffing mat or lick pad for your dog can really help. The mental challenge and stress relief will ensure that your little friend is satisfied more quickly and therefore calms down more easily.
Challenging mind games for dogs
Is your dog the ‘smartest kid in class’ and do dog toys often only provide short-lived pleasure? In our dog shop you’ll find challenging brain games in a variety of different levels. There are special puppy puzzle games for beginners, but also dog puzzles with sufficient challenge for advanced players. Do you want more action during play? Then the interactive dog games from our range are a good choice for both you and your four-legged friend.
