When shopping for chew toys for your dog, there are certain things you should avoid. Chew toys are meant to please your dogs' natural tendency to chew but should be safe.

Avoid chew toys with strings, buttons, small parts or loose fabric. Stuffed toys and rope toys are not recommended because puppies can chew through them ingesting the fabric or chew off parts like the eyes causing a life threatening intestinal obstruction or a choking hazard.

Bones are not recommended for dogs or puppies. They do not break down easily which means your puppy may have to pass them through his stool causing serious impaction and constipation.

Don't buy too many toys at first but have enough to distract your puppy from chewing on your furniture, shoes and other items.
