    Is soft toys advisable for dogs?

    I saw this video that was shared by a friend a mine a few days ago and I'm just wondering if fluffy toys are actually advisable for puppies/dog like this one? I have chewing toys which I bought at pet street mall and I guess this are much more durable than a cute stuff toy. I hope that the baby terrier won't destroy it because that is a cute unicorn.

    I would think that such a toy would be OK, but the dog would need to be supervised when playing, to ensure that nothing is eaten or swallowed. That is extremely unlikely to happen, but it is best to be on the safe side.

    Re: Is soft toys advisable for dogs?

    I agree with what LPC said. It's so easy for a dog to end up eating some part of the toy and even if it's soft and fluffy it could cause a terrible intestinal blockage.
    I had a terrier once who used to rip apart any toy he was given. I daren't leave him alone with any toy, or rawhide chew either. I told people never to buy him those things.
    But the last dog I had never ripped up anything. Instead, she would 'mother' any toys she was given, and put them all in our bed! haha
    (Nothing quite like getting into bed in the pitch dark very late silence....and lying down on top of three squeaky toys!)

    Now! You can find lots different type of soft toy in market on which your dog feels comfortable. But according to my experience Nandog Pet Gear provide good product and soft toy with affordable prices.

    I agree with everything said above but I just want to add that if you keep stuffed toys as collections or have kids that have stuffed toys a soft toy like this for the dog may not be wise. Remember the dog can't tell the difference, if you give him this kind of time then ALL stuffed toys are game :P Just keep that in mind

    I agree that these toys are Okay for your dog but you must be careful and have to keep an eye on the dog so that your dog may not eat or swallow that toy.

    Dogs should technically be supervised with any toy. That being said, most dogs are fine with anything you give them....and others eat underwear! Who knows what they are thinking!

    Stuffed toys can cause intestinal blockages if too much stuffing is eaten at once, but it is more often the cloth part of the toy that the dogs eat that is the problem. I've seen my fair share of dogs who come into the clinic for foreign body surgery because they ate nerf bullets, nails, rocks, socks, toys, underwear, etc...

    Dogs are silly!

    I think it's really okay if your dog play with those soft or fluffy toys it will improve them.

    I think it's fine to let your dog play with soft toys, just keep it away from her when you are not around since there is a tendency that the dog will swallow the toy and you wouldn't want that.
