Are rubber toys safe for dogs?
Yes, sure they are. They are great for gums and they are a great gnawing game for your dog to play. Make sure you get the correct size for your dog and make sure that you watch him regularly just to make sure he's not doing anything stupid (you know dogs!). Overall, yes rubber toys are great for dogs and completely safe.
Most dogs I know don't get into Kong toys or rubber toys, I suggest tennis balls and cloth-like materials. Big dogs usually prefer balls and softer toys and little dogs mostly like balls. Unfortunatly, each dog is diffrent so you will have to try a few things. I can already illiminate some for you however. Don't get rubber toys or weak stuffed animals
The common equiment for cats and and dogs is described below: CATS: * Litter box * bed * bowl * litter box scoop * a few safe toys * crate * nail clippers (optional and not for declawed cats) DOGS: * crate * leash * harness * a few safe toys * bowl * shovel (NOT for discipline but for messes in the yard)
Rawhide bones are good. Another answer Rawhide bones are good, our dogs get them but we never leave them alone with them because they can get caught in their throats and they can choke. If, you have a large dog the "kong" chew toys are very good, course medium sized dogs can chew them too, they are very heavy rubber.
