Tip of the Month

10/25/2007 Squeaky Toys

Any dog trainer, or even just an experienced dog owner, will tell you that one of the most popular and attention-grabbing types of squeaky toys are the brightly colored, latex toys that have a high-pitched “squeaky” sound. The appearance of the toy and the sound it makes when squeezed (or chewed, in a dog’s case) are what usually capture a dog’s attention. These toys are great tools to use during obedience classes when teaching new behaviors such as the “down” or “focus,” as smaller squeaky toys are easily hidden in your pocket.

• Most are easily washable and dogs love the high-pitched sound.

• They can be used during dog training sessions for a dog who finds toys rewarding.

• They are small and easy to transport, so you can take them wherever you take your dog.

• These are not to be used as chew toys because they tear easily and parts of the toy (including the squeaker) can be swallowed, causing intestinal damage and blockages. Never leave a dog unattended with a squeaky toy.

• Unlike other rubber toys, squeaky toys are not the best toys to use as chewing deterrents because of their imminent danger. Ask your animal trainer for suggestions regarding suitable chew toys.
