In my opinion all dogs should have toys. It stimulates their brains because they have something to play with.
If your dog is creative like my dog Sasha, then she will quickly learn to keep herself occupied by creating her own game.
The kind of toy you get must suit your dog. If she is a small breed you will need a toy she can easily hold onto, whereas large breeds need toys that are strong enough to cope with large jaws.
Most dogs love squeaky toys! When we got Chloe her first squeaky toy it took her a while to work out what was making that noise every time she chewed it. It was funny to watch, but she soon worked it out and enjoyed running around chewing it.
But if you can’t stand noise, then you shouldn’t buy your dog a squeaky toy, because she is bound to squeak it. In stead, maybe get a really chewy and bouncy toy.
A kong is also a good toy, because you can put some food in there for your dog to try and get out! It will keep her amused for hours. One suggestion is putting a small amount of spreadable cheese or a type of peanut paste just inside the hole for your dog to lick off
