For dogs and other pets, toys are not just luxury, but a necessity. Toys are important to your dog’s well-being. Toys help fight boredom when you have to leave your dogs at home, and provide comfort when they’re feeling nervous. Toys can even help prevent your dog from developing certain problem behaviors. During the holidays, its natural for us to want to spoil our fur babies with plenty of new toys and treats, but not all toys and treats are safe for them.
