Friendly Safety Reminders
  • It is always recommended to supervise your pet while playing with any toys.
  • Discontinue use if any part of the toy is broken or damaged beyond moderate wear and tear.
  • Remove all packaging before use.
  • Wash toys regularly to prevent bacteria build up.
  • Always ensure that each toy is suitable for your dog’s size and behavior.
  • No dog toy is indestructible.
  • Chew but don’t eat, no dog toy is intended to be eaten and could cause serious harm if ingested.
Rubber Toys

While rubber dog toys are highly durable and safe, no dog toy is invincible, and these toys are not edible or intended to be ingested. Your dog should always be monitored during play and chew time should be kept to a reasonable time limit.  Some Rubber toys may have specific interactive functionalities, such as a feeder for inserting treats or an internal squeaker. It is recommended that these toys be used in conjunction with their functionalities to extend the life of the toy. If any portion or part of the toy is tearing apart, ripped off, or damaged in any way, discard the toy immediately. DuraPaw sends you new toys every month, so you don’t need to keep the old ones!

Rubber Lick Mat's

Rubber Lick Mat's are intended for intermittent feeding and licking only. Lick Mat's are not intended to be used as a chew toy and should not be left unsupervised. There are many health benefits to using a Lick Mat, when used properly, such as reducing anxiety and stress. Ensure to inspect the Lick Mat before each use to ensure no rubber parts have been chewed or broken loose.

Nylon Toys

Nylon toys are made of very firm plastic materials and can be hard on your dog’s teeth, which could potentially cause cracks or chips and an expensive vet bill!  Although Nylon toys are great for dogs that love to chew, all play must be supervised and should be kept to a reasonable time limit. Be sure to thoroughly inspect the toy before each use to make sure no parts have broken off or cracked.

Nylon toys are not recommended for puppies, or dogs who do not have their full set of adult teeth grown in yet.

Plush Toys

Plush toys come in many different types and qualities of fabrics. Many of our DuraPaw Exclusive toys are designed with ropes involved as well. Our plush toys are intended for many different fun games such as fetch, tug-of-war, hide and seek, and some also have puzzle feeders included. Although your dog may chew these plush toys, chew time must be monitored and if the toy becomes damaged in any way it should be taken away and discarded immediately.

Rope Toys

Rope toys are great for dogs who prefer the feel of a softer toy, however, rope toys are not specifically intended for chewing. Rope toys are meant to be used as tug toys, for games such as tug-of-war, to interact and play with your dog. Any part of the rope that becomes twisted, mangled, or undone should be immediately removed from your dog.
