FAQs

Why do dogs like squeaky toys?

Many dogs go wild for squeaky dog toys, and the reason is quite simple — these dog chew toys satisfy your dog’s instinct to hunt and capture prey. It lets them play while fulfilling that feeling of hunting too. Plus, in general, pups just love that squeaky sound they hear every time they bite down.


Keep in mind dog toys with squeakers can sometimes be dangerous if you don’t buy the right size depending on your dog’s own size. You don’t want them to swallow the squeakers, so make sure to keep a good eye on them when they’re with the toy if you’re not sure which indestructible dog toys to buy.


Why does my cat bring me toys?

First things first — cats are super territorial animals, so their cat toys are their toys. If your pet is bringing you cat toys, and their best cat toys at that, it means they love you very much. They are trying to show you affection by bringing you a toy of theirs. They are using the toy to show you they trust you, love you, and feel safe with you — it’s pretty much one of the coolest things you can receive from your cat because it’ means so much more than just a cat toy.


If you’ve got a fellow feline lover in your social group and are looking for gifts for cat owners, try this The Foggy Doggy Good Kitty Toy Duo or these Shameless Pets Naughty and Nice Cat Treats. Plus, you can shop our entire list of the best gifts for pet owners above.


What items should every pet owner have?

There are plenty of things a pet needs from its owner, aside from love and care, of course. If you don’t already know the things every pet owner should own for their pet, here’s a list of what we recommend:

  • Pet food, wet,dry, or both
  • Food and water bowls
  • Grooming supplies
  • Potty products like a litter box and litter for a cat or doggie poop bags for dogs
  • A collar
  • A dog (or cat) tag
  • A leash
  • A bed
  • The best dog treats or best cat treats
  • Scratching posts for cats
