Durability- Unless you're planning to switch up your dog toys every few days, you want toys that will last for a long time or at least until the dog will get bored from it.
Cleaning of the toy- some toys are easier to clean than other. For example, nylon and rubber toys are very easy to clean and can also be thrown into the dishwasher.

How do I determine the size of crate I should buy for my dog?


The crate should be large enough for your pet to lie down comfortably and also turn around with ease. If you are buying a crate for a puppy, try to buy one for the size he/she will grow to fit, rather than the size they are now.

Does it matter what size toy I give to my dog?


Size is important when it comes to dog toys. Dogs need toys that are not too small (for their size) because then they can swallow it. So when picking out a toy for your dog, make sure it is big enough so it cannot get stuck in their throat.
