The toy hospital: My dog ruins all of his dog toys
Stuffed toys can be quite expensive, so I do not throw them out for minor tears. I stitch them up with thread and a heavy-duty needle. And when I have stitched up the same toy more than three times, out into the trash it goes.
This is extremely rare: Liam often loses interest in destroying the toy once it has no eyes, ears, toes or tails.
It is important to check your dog's toys for rips and tears. The filling inside toys can clog up a dog's digestive system if he or she eats it, and surgery to remove this obstruction can be incredibly expensive. Tears can also be small and hard to see, unless you are specifically searching each toy carefully.
