Cuddly toys for dogs in need for a lot of love

Hugs and cuddling are by humans appreciated body contact that is sometimes unwanted by the dog. When the four-legged is ready to snuggle, this strengthens the bond between owner and dog in addition to common tossing games. If he sends a hostile stance, he may not want to cuddle or is bored. Maybe he will be interested in cuddly toys for dogs.

Non-toxic Plush Dog Toys

If the dog accepts the plush toy offered to him and nibbles and sleeks at it, dog toy tested for harmful substances is advantageous. Toxic plasticizers and other dangerous to health and environmentally harmful chemicals are just as little in dog toys as in children's toys. Also non-toxic are toys and baby articles that have a concentration of less than 0.1 mass percent of softening phthalates DEHP (diethylhexyl phthalate), DBP (dibutyl phthalate) and BBP (benzyl butyl phthalate) in accordance with the EU chemicals regulation REACH. Thus, the indications for baby toys provide a good benchmark for dog-friendly squeaky and water toys as well as for cuddly and tossing toys.

For eco cuddly dog toys, for example, GOTS (Global Organic Textile Standard) certified organic cotton, recycled and vegan leather, organic nettle, biodegradable viscose for yarns and recycled padding are used. Conventional cotton should have been tested for at least by Standard 100 by Oeko-Tex® on carcinogenic chemicals. If the dog cuddly toy is vegan, it can carry the Peta Approved Vegan seal. Thus, with the corresponding product any animal suffering is excluded.

Fair produced Dog Toys to cuddle and snuggle

In addition to ecological standards, Fairtrade also plays a role in dog products. Fairtrade certified plush toy for dogs means that the materials are purchased at a fair trade price so that farmers can live on their crops bearably. The same applies to the further processing such as cutting, sewing, etc., in which the workers must be adequately remunerated.

The more important it is to achieve the freedom of trade responsibly. The Foreign Trade Association (FTA) creates more transparency with regard to working conditions in international supply chains with the BSCI (Business Social Compliance Initiative). Long-term improvements include socially acceptable production conditions, regular advanced training and political work.

Alternative profession of sympathy

All of these sustainability criteria mean maximum ecological quality and fair working conditions in the supplier countries for commercial products, including dogs cuddly toys that are not Made in Germany (MIG) and produced in a European or international country.

The appropriate affection for the dog can consist to pet him, to tell him something nice, to give him one (!) goodie and, if necessary, to make him happy with an eco plush toy. The organic dog shops at Greenpicks deliver all cuddly toys for dogs in pollutant-tested quality. The dog owner recognizes that with valid worldwide eco seals, also summarized in the Greenpicks sustainability criteria.
Tip: If the four-legged friend is unapproachable, be patient. Basically, like humans dogs need physical touch to be happy. Maybe to lie close with the dog is the right method to give the beloved pet security and warmth.
