    Default Xmas wish list

    I was at the pet store today and spent ages trying to find a Xmas present for Banjo! I looked at some of the interactive toys, but just wasn't sure if she would get them or get them too easily or like them...

    I decided I want to get another kibble dispenser. We have a Kong Wobbler and I put all her kibble in that. We have a treat ball, but that's really too small for kibble. I was thinking maybe a Tug-a-Jug. Any opinions anyone?

    And interactive toys. Boy, there's so many out there! And I don't know if you are supposed to get an easy one first and then work your way to advanced? Which is a bloody expensive affair as some of these cost $59 at the store. Who uses them and what do you recommend? I like the look of the Tornado...

    And does anyone know the best place to buy toys online? Don't mind ordering from the US if postage is reasonable...

    H i Beloz....

    Cant help much with the info you need but i just wanted to say that i bought Bronx his Xmas pressy and he's using it already. A brand new steele frame bed (welded).
    His 3rd bed in just a few weeks. $100 later !!!

    If he breaks this one he'd better buy me some extra thick and soft uggs for chrissy, because i'll be tempted to kick him in the arse !!

    I recall someone talking about the tug jugs a while back....might be worth a forum search and see what comes up ??

    The Tug-A-Jug is fantastic. Misha is an 18 month old 8 kilo Cavalier X Min Poodle and it takes her at least 20 minutes to get about a third of a cup of kibble. If I remember correctly hers is the small size Tug-A-Jug. It seems pretty tough, I guess it depends on the dog.

    I bought her the small Bob-A-Lot at the same time and it took her about 10 minutes to work out how to enlarge the opening to make the kibble come out quickly!!

    She loves her Crackle Head Ball, and she loves her small dinosaur whose tail is stuffed with the crackle stuff ('go Dogs' brand I bought from Cleanrun in US when they had free shipping).

    For Christmas I have bought her a few things from the RSPCA on-line store.

    Sorry, I can't comment on any of the interactive toys.
    I think most toys are designed for dry food? I have Misha on a raw diet so her fun with the tug-a-jug is occasional.

    I wish I could remember where I saw a bubble maker for dogs, I didn't take much notice at the time but recently saw a dog at the local park having a ball chasing the coloured bubbles, and the bubble making machine went on and on. I should have asked the hoomans who were picnicking with the dog!

    I tend to compare prices after googling the item I want, but I don't think there is one site which is consistently cheaper than any other.
    Happy hunting!

    The Kong Wobbler is like the Bob a Lot but you cannot adjust the hole. The one we have is a bit big for Banjo really, but it does slow her down a bit. The downside is that she cannot lift it herself so if it gets stuck in a corner or under something, I need to come to the rescue.

    I am about to order the Tug a Jug, Busy Buddy Waggle and a crackle head monkey from the RSPCA store. Their prices seem ok.

    And I'm going to put my daughter to work to create 'puzzle toys'! Just wrapping treats in boxes and paper bags and stuff. It'll generate a lot of mess, but we're used to that.
