Understimulated dogs have a greater chance of developing bad habits, such as biting shoes, table legs and other available objects in the home. With an activation toy, the dog is stimulated, activated and challenged both mentally and physically. A well-activated dog also sleeps better at night and wants to have an easier time finding peace in the home in the evenings. Always have the dog's toys with you if you're going on holiday, so you can't avoid being able to activate your dog.
High quality materials
The dog gets the toy in its mouth, so it is important to choose materials carefully and avoid unnecessary and harmful substances. At PetLux you will find products from, among others, UpDogToys and Hevea that are made of natural rubber, without latex, phthalates, petroleum, PVC and heavy metals. They are soft and flexible with a textured surface that provides a durable bite. The products are made of materials that can also be used outside in the sea, but remember to bring the toys inside during the winter.
Choose the right toy for the dog
Your dog's toy should be large enough to not be swallowed, but light enough for the dog to push it around. Not all dogs like the same toy, so it is important to find just the right one for your dog. Some activity toys require you to be there with the dog and supervise, so it's also about finding something that fits you and your home. The degree of difficulty should also match your dog. Dogs with a high level of activation and intelligence can handle more difficult tasks and therefore need more stimulation.
