Why do dogs need squeaky toys?
Squeak toys can stimulate a dog’s natural prey drive helps them just ‘be a dog’. Also, squeaky toys also make effective training tools for getting your dog’s attention and rewarding good behavior.
As we know dogs are descendants of wolves. The noise from a squeaky toy, like the sound from injured prey, will ignite their innate wolflike behavior. So a squeaky toy can help your dogs to keep their hunting instincts.
Another reason drive dogs to bite squeaky toys constantly is they regard such noise as a reward. The feedback from squeaky dog toys makes them realize the bite is effective and they can’t resist the immediate reward that comes from the sound.
