Think of your Maltipoo's toys as being tools. Each should serve a specific purpose. Depending on the age of your dog, a dog toy will be: a comforting item, a chewing object to help with teething, a focus item to prevent boredom, a soothing sense of security when left home alone or a way for you and your Maltipoo to bond.
Teething is a difficult time for both puppy and owners. It brings about intense itching and a need to chew. If you have the right toys, it can be a lot easier to get through the teething phase. Having the right chew toys will help your Maltipoo concentrate on his own belongings and not chew on household items.
For teething toys, you'll want one of an appropriate size, that is durable, and importantly is designed with soft nubs and/or a variety of textures. In this way, a puppy can maneuver the toy to the areas in his mouth that are itchy at any one particular time.
Nylabones often work great, as do small rope toys. You may also find that offering ice cubes (plain or flavored) can help with the discomfort that comes along with teething.
