Outside Toys for Dogs | Dog Care - The Daily Puppy
Jul 21, 2016 - We have four active dogs and a big yard. We found 5 outdoor dog toys that our dogs don't destroy and wear them out in short order.
But what do you do with the dog that likes to dig? Even my shelties like to dig from time to time….not outside (thankfully!) but on the couch, their bed, my bed. I am not talking about the scratching dogs do before they lie down. I am talking about real digging behavior. There are no toys for this. Thankfully, you can easily make one! Take a box that is big enough for your dog to get at least his front paws in and have access room. It should have at least a 4-5” high lip. Fill with scrap fabric, fleece, torn up towels, etc. Burry within toys, treats, etc., and viola! You have a “sand” box that your dog can dig up and re-bury treasures to his heart’s content!
If the weather is too bad to be outside, if you are just looking for something to keep your dog’s nose busy, or if you just want to give your dog some mental stimulation, Kyjen makes a large variety of dog puzzles that are sure to keep them busy and happy. These toys are also a great way for you to bond with your dog because it helps to train your dog to watch and interact with you.

Possessiveness is an entirely natural behavior for dogs and, in the case of dog-dog interactions, a difficult one to modify. From Brutus’s perspective, his behavior works—and every time he successfully steals a toy or defends one from another dog, his obnoxious behavior is rewarded. I know of no way to decrease his interest in toys—I expect that time outs will have the opposite effect—and I don’t want to deprive him of what are obviously a great source of joy in his life. But here are some thoughts on improving his etiquette around other dogs:The same goes for some of the inside dog toys. A few of them are soft and just not meant to be outside. My dogs know the rule and will drop whatever toy they have in their mouths on the deck before we come in the backdoor. Maddie is still learning, so sometimes I have to remind her but Rodeo knows and doesn't even try anymore.We live on a farm/ranch and so I do not allow my dog's inside toys to be taken outside and their outside toys to come inside. For one thing, I often buy things for outside that are intended to be thrown and are harder and would most likely break something in the house.etting some outdoor exercise with your dog is good for both of you, but there also are times when your dog will be outside in the yard by himself or with canine companions. Some dog toys are suited for both scenarios: ones that allow you to share in his playtime, and others that will help him relieve boredom and discourage destructive behaviors. Remember that outdoor time should be used prudently so that dogs learn important social skills.
