Hi Guys, We were at the pet store last night, looking for something for Lady to chew...other than my SHOES! she has figured out how to open the front closet now....not good and totally working on that. if anyone has ideas let me know...but we picked up the KONG WOBBLER
http://www.kongcompany.com/kongwobblervideo.html


Lady just LOVES IT!!! she played with it for an hour straight!
it is heavy on the bottom, but my smart cockapoo figured out how to hook a tooth in the hole and carry it to a blanket so that the whole would keep giving her treats...so if on a plushy carpet not great, but on our Laminate...she was having a great time, attacking it, barking at it, pushing it all around.

just wanted to let everyone know if they were looking for a toy to keep their pups attention for a while.

I have seen these and was thinking about getting Holly one in the hope she will only chew it and not my shoes. Slowly getting things together ready for when my baby comes home and this is on the list. Any other recommendations for toys??

a normal kong is fab, you can fill it with anything, and feezing it is good too. oh and for teathing puppys wet a tea towlering it out, tie a knot in it and freeze it. then let the chew away.

Would there be any reason not to use Origen kibble for treats and toys like this once a dog is on all BARF food?
Probably not. As long as it's not a lot I wouldn't have thought it would cause digestive problems. But I'm only guessing - I'm strictly an amateur, not an expert!!

if you break up the dehydrated liver into little pieces it would probably work in there too

We have the same shaped toy by a different manufacturer, Poppy loves it but the only flaw in it is keeping it clean and the noise as it crashes about, not good for you quiet times.

Going to get the KONG WOBBLER for the new pup as it will be east to keep clean.
This type of toy are great if you want to distract a pup when you leave it for a short time. We also have a ball that works the same way.

The liver idea is a good one , I use liver as my training tit bits, rub the liver with crushed garlic and bake in the oven slowly until dry, then chop up. Been using it as a training aid for 40 years and dogs will do anything for it. But be prepared to be mobbed if you us it at training classes once the dogs get the sent.

Yes, you're absolutely right. I feel like the Pied Piper sometimes when we're out on a walk - I have dogs following me with their noses on my pocket!

Our puppy trainer recommended one of these as Beau doesn't like being left alone so we needed something to distract her (along with the radio). We fill it with natural yoghurt with bits of chopped apple and carrot and then freeze it and just before we give it to her we put a slight amount of peanut butter around the edge. Beau loves it and it is filled with all things that are good for her! :)

As you can see from photo Poppy has a lot of toy's ( this just a small sample as she hides them all over the place). She likes her soft toys and steals them from our grandchildren.
Good quality children's soft toys last longer than pet shop bought one ( get them from charity shops ). Rope raggers are good when teething as are nylon chews. Like children they need lots to play with and it is great to see them play.
But still watch the shoes.:)

Mable would love one of those cos she's a ganit .. Wilfs too idle though dont think he'd be bothered but he could prove me wrong... she likes having to bash stuff out of a small plastic pop bottle x

we have something similar to that for our cat. she eats all of her meals out of it, little bits of dry food in it and she can play with it so she gets some mental stimulation instead of just eating out of her dish (which we dont use at all anymore). She loves it!

I was at the pet store yesterday too:D and bought a thick rope knotted each end with fluffy bits! Harley loves it. He has so many toys but I always pick up another one when I go shopping just can't help myself:smile:
