Three Simple Tests for Suitable Chew Toys or Treats

Ever wonder which toys or treats are good for your dog's teeth and which may not be? Just answer these three easy questions.

1. The Knee Cap Test: If you think you would object if I briskly whacked your knee cap with a toy, it's probably too hard for the dog and could fracture teeth.

2. The Pine Table Test: If you think you would object if I dropped the toy from a good height onto your new pine coffee table, it's too hard for the dog. Find another toy.

3. The Human Dental Test: If you think that a good solid chomp on the toy would break a few of your teeth, pick another. Dog's teeth are not inherently stronger than ours, and hard toys will break their teeth as readily as they will break ours.
