Why are the Hartz Angry Birds a favorite toy of dog owners and dogs alike? It might have something to do with the fact that not only are they based on the wildly popular game but they are also adorable as well. Since there are several to choose from, in various sizes, it is important to know which is best for your pet. The type of games that you like to play with your dog might also influence your choice of the Angry Bird toy that you choose.
Always Choose a Toy that is Safe for Your Pet
One of the biggest threats to a pet’s safety is choking. To determine if a toy is too small for your dog, look at the size of his mouth. Inspect all toys frequently to make sure that they are not ripped or frayed so that he does not get small bits and pieces off of them. There are several varieties of the Angry Bird toys – in a number of different sizes. Whether you want the pigs or the birds, make sure that you are getting the toy that your dog can pick up but not get completely into his mouth.
The flyer disk which features the Red Angry Bird on the front is a good choice especially if you have a dog that likes to chase these types of toys. Some dogs are very naturally attracted to leaping and catching flying toys others are not. Another toy choice perfect for all sizes of dogs is the two headed toy which has a different Angry Bird character on each end.
Some experts worry that playing games like tug of war with your dog can increase his aggression and may cause potential behavior problems. However, most dogs do like to play this way and do not react negatively. If you are playing tug with your young puppies be aware of his teeth which will start coming out around four months. He might yelp or cry if they are pulled out while playing and may even bleed a little bit, but don’t worry, he will be fine!
Big and Plush Toys for Bigger Dogs
If your dog is on the larger size, the larger size of Angry Birds in plush might be a good idea. They have a sound chip which makes a number of different sounds directly from the game. Those sounds are meant to engage the dog to play and may encourage him to get a little more active. Dogs that are reluctant to play may even be willing to give these a nibble or two. Be careful with dogs that are known to destroy stuffed toys however, they might tear apart and then devour their Hartz Angry Birds toys.
