If you think of toys as tools, you'll be better able to choose a few good ones that cater to your Maltipoo's specific needs.
Here's what to consider:
Really a 'must' for any puppy that is teething. This establishes good chewing behaviors and the right teething toy can help quite a bit with itching and discomfort. When these are placed in your Maltipoo's area, he'll be sure to use them to soothe his teething woes.
'Stay busy toys'.
Dogs can be bored just like we can. Be sure to take your Maltipoo for two walks per day, ideally lasting for at least 20 minutes each. Also, take time each day to play one-on-one, and do some command training.
But, no matter how much attention you pay to your puppy or dog, there will be times that you'll need your Maltipoo to keep himself occupied, And of course, this is vital when your dog is home alone.
Good 'stay busy' toys will be engaging. They'll draw a dog in and keep him focused.
The Babbles that we recommend emit funny noises and sayings (20 in all), and are really a blast for dog of any age. One does animal noises (goat, chicken, horse, frog, etc.) and the other does human voices ('Hot diggity-dog', 'Hi, baby!', and more!)
This is a such a great help for dogs that have trouble being alone. A companion toy is as close as you can get to giving your Maltipoo a friend without bringing home another dog.
The one that we recommend is a good-sized quality stuffed animal. It emits a rhythmic heartbeat, which mimics a living creature. And, optionally, it has a setting to emit a comforting warmth. With this, your Maltipoo is no longer alone.
