Pit bulls aggressively chew due to their strong jaws and they love to chew on things. They need a toy in which to channel or direct that aggressive chewing upon. With dogs that are geared to please their humans’ pit bulls don’t want to make you mad at them for chewing on something that they should have not chewed on. However, they do need something to channel and release all that energy upon; and having their very own pit bull toy is the best thing for them. One of the best types of pit bull toys are bouncy toys or toys with a lot of movement. Toys with erratic movement seam to really get them excited. Toys of this nature really seams to trigger a pit bulls’ hunt, prey drive instinct witch needs to be satisfied to have a happy dog. A toy that gets a dog excited will cause him to become more active making him exercise more, and exercise more intense. A great exercise for pit bulls is to play fetch and to chew, exercising those jaw muscles.

Toys will help keep your pit bull pacified when you are not home. Pit bull love to be around people but if people are not around toys will help compensate for the loneliness that a pit bull feels when nobody is around. Many pit bulls want their masters company so much that they will follow their masters around from room to room when ever they walked around the house always keeping their human in their sight. I’m sure many of you have experienced this. When you leave the house without your dog they must have felt like they are in solitary confinement. Having their toys around will give them company, comfort and something to do that they would not get in trouble for.
