New Interactive Toys

Our trainer recommended that we pick up some new interactive toys to enrich the pups environment. She also recommended that we put away the food bowls and make the pups work for their food. So we went over to Pet People today and picked up two interactive/ feeding toys- The Kong Wobbler and The StarMark Everlasting Fun Ball. We are going to get a few more online (since it's cheaper), maybe the Buster Cube, The Nina Ottosson Brick Puzzle, or IQ Treat Ball. Please let me know if you have any personal favorites!

We also got some new treats the pups go crazy for- the Natural Balance roll in Turkey and ZiwiPeak. The ZiwiPeak is pretty expensive, so it will be saved and used as a high incentive treat. It's an air-dried venison from New Zealand. 

I recently order clickers online too! I really can't wait to get started on clicker training. I really think it will help improve my timing during training. 

I really want to thank everyone for their kind words. Both pups did very well on their walks today. They are both learning Watch, Targeting, and not to bark around the house by focusing on more constructive things to do. 


  1. Oreo loves Nina's brick (and also the tornado). I tried Chewy on the brick the other day, and he had a lot of fun with it. Oreo also likes premier pet's tug a jug.

    Have fun with your clickers! They are the best thing ever.

  2. What smart doggies! We love to watch Murph play, he plays just like Minnie! (kind of like a cat, he he he.)

    Enjoyed the videos!

    Drools and licks,
    Minnie and Mack

  3. Two of you are so clever!!! Those toys look so interesting.

    Have fun! I agree with Sara, clickers are fun!
