Why Do Puppies Need Teething Toys?
Puppies, just like human babies, go through a teething period. This is when their baby teeth start to fall out and adult teeth begin to grow in.
During this time, puppies may experience discomfort or pain which can lead them to chew on anything they find around the house - from your favourite pair of shoes to furniture corners.
That's where puppy teething toys come into play. These specialty dog toys provide relief from any tooth or gum aches associated with the teething process.
They also keep your furry friend entertained and promote good oral health by scraping plaque off their teeth as they chew.
