There’s so much open space to enjoy in New Braunfels, and when you have a furry family member, you’ll want to make sure pet safety is on your mind. When you live at The Landmark Lofts & Garden in New Braunfels, Texas, there are many ways to make the most of apartment living with pets. Here are some easy ways to make your pet toys and treats for your furry family member.

Long-Lasting Pet Toys

You might already have a pet, or you could be prepping for pets. Either way, it’s good to have some long-lasting pet toys available for when your dog or cat needs a distraction.

It’s easy enough to make toys that last. For example, an old sock with a knot in it can be a fun toy for your cat, while dogs of all sizes love an old, partially deflated soccer ball to kick around. Both of these handmade toys are pet-friendly and have pet safety in mind.

When choosing cat toys, avoid things with feathers and leather bits; cats can chew these off easily, and it can be dangerous for them. Instead, choose solid, well-made items that won’t tear apart easily.

One of the best toys for dogs that like to chew is Kong toys. These heavy-duty rubber toys can be left by themselves or filled with peanut butter to give your dog hours and hours of enjoyment.

Baking Pet Safe Treats

There are lots of dog treat recipes out there. Make sure you’re aware of your dog’s food allergies before making your pet treats. The best recipes feature peanut butter and/or pumpkin; dogs love the taste of peanut butter, and pumpkin helps keep their digestive systems healthy, so peanut butter and pumpkin treats are a win-win.

Apartment Living With Pets

Whether you’re a cat person or a dog person, apartment living with pets is the best. When you have your furry family member around, life is good. If you’re looking for a great place to take your pup when you want to go on an adventure, try New Braunfels’ Puppy Playland Park, where dogs of all sizes can run around and play safely.
