Getting a toy for your dog isn’t as simple as going to a store and picking out the first thing you see. It’s a very thought-out process that has to consider a number of factors to ensure that you’re not simply buying a toy for your corgi that it won’t even play with. Here’s a few factors that you’ll have to consider to get that perfect toy your corgi wouldn’t be able to live without.
One of the more important features you have to consider in a toy is the size. Why? Because obviously your corgi will only enjoy toys it can actually get its mouth to bite and chew on. Get a toy too big and you’ll risk wasting money on a toy your dog cannot play with. This is actually the safer route because if you get a toy that’s too small, it becomes a choking hazard and that’ll be problematic and will warrant a trip to your local vet. So for corgis, make sure it’s not too big or too small for that cute little mouth.
To add up to the point previously mentioned, safety should also be a priority when choosing toys for your beloved pet. Prioritizing safety means getting toys that are made with non-toxic materials or painted with non-toxic pigments. Dogs interact with toys mostly through their mouths so it is a must that all their toys must be safe for them to handle. Safety, as mentioned, is also getting a toy that’s not too small because it’s easy for a dog to mistake a toy for a treat. So don’t get a toy that’s small enough to be swallowed.
Check for durability so that you won’t break the bank. Getting one durable toy is infinitely better than getting dozens of toys because they constantly break or tear apart. Dogs just want to have fun and fun means sinking their teeth into it and going crazy. Durability can be checked by understanding the material used for the toys. Did they use rubber? What kind of rubber? Is there any stitching? What kind of stitching? Those are some questions you should look out for when choosing between multiple toys.

This one might be the most important point to consider toy-wise and no one can answer this except you. Every dog is different. Some like to run while others prefer to walk. Some want to play while others prefer to lay around.
It’s important you get a toy that reflects your corgi’s personality because nothing is sadder than forcing your pet to play with something that doesn’t resonate with its own personality.
This means that you have to get to know your pet first and this can mean buying different kinds of toys at first to see what kind of toys your corgi attaches itself with. Does it like balls? Ropes? Stuffed toys? You’d better find out.
Ultimately, it’s all up to your furry little friend. This may be such a frequently-repeated phrase but it’s true: every dog is different. At least with this list, you now have an idea of what different toys are available for your favorite corgi.
You have your typical balls, some toys, and a few treat dispensing tools. You also now know what factors to consider before making your final purchase. It may be just a simple toy but this is actually a serious thing to think about.
Your corgi is there making your life ultimately better so the very least you can do is give it happiness too.
