Chew toys are not only fun for puppies, but they help to clean teeth and relieve pain. Plus, they freshen breath and make your pup’s mouth smell better.
When picking out a chew toy, consider your puppy’s current size and the materials that are safe for their teeth. A toy that is too hard for your dog’s mouth may cause them injury.
Puppies chew a lot, so it’s important to give them appropriate toys during teething. Chewing helps to relieve pain and stimulate their gums, so choosing the right chew toys can help reduce discomfort and keep your furniture safe.
One of the most popular chew toys is Kong, which has a soft puppy rubber formula and flexible grooves that make it easy for dogs to stuff treats inside. The hollow center and flexible ridges can hold wet or dry kibble, squeaky bones, cheese, peanut butter, turkey, or other treats.
The teething stick also has exclusive Denta-Ridges that gently clean the mouth as your pup chews, soothing swollen gums and promoting good oral hygiene while they play. Stuffing a KONG with treats can encourage your puppy to chew on their toy for longer, and you can even freeze them to prolong the fun.
Frozen dog toys can be a great way to relieve swollen gums and soothe sore mouths, but it’s best to choose a toy that’s made specifically for freezing rather than a toy that could get too hard or brittle when frozen.
