Orka Alternative Dog Chew Toy, Bone

Petstages Orka Mini Bone Dog Chew Toy provides your pup with an appropriate option for instinctive satisfaction, while helping to reduce boredom and destructive behavior. The unique Orka TPE rubber material keeps these toys durable through hard chewing while keeping dogs interested. The flat shape of the mini Orka bone helps exercise jaw muscles while the string pieces support good dental hygiene… develop stress and anxiety related issues. Don’t force your dog to accept new people if they aren’t interested.

  • Tell your visitors not to reach your dog; let the dog come to visitors of its own accord.
  • If they don’t go to the new person, the new person should just ignore the dog.
  • After the dog has met and sniffed the visitor, suggest that the visitor gently touch the side of the dog’s neck or the side of the shoulder, rather than the top of the head.
  • Stroking the top of the dog’s head can cause stress in some dogs as this gesture may feel like an attempt at dominance. It can be challenging for some dogs and scary for others.
