    Default FOR SALE - Aussie Dog Toy

    Hi guys,

    I recently bought Jackson a 'Home alone' toy from Aussie Dog Toys. It hangs in a tree or somewhere similar and they can play tug of war with it. The ball also has a hole in it which you can put treats in, and when they flick the ball they come out.

    I am selling it because Jackson doesn't like it He can't destroy it, therefore he doesn't want it. It's only 4 weeks old, and it's been in my bedroom for 3 of those weeks. You can see in the photo that there are no marks on it at all, not even scuff marks. Jackaroo had a little fun with the pamphlet when I dropped it, as you can also see!

    This is from the description in the pamphlet:

    'It's a treat. Hang it out to entertain your dog when you leave and take it in again when you return.'

    This is a medium sized one. The black strap in there has also never even been opened, I occey (sp?) strapped it up because I didn't see the strap when I unpacked it.

    I don't have the original packaging, but it was only a mesh bag with a small tag, nothing significant. I'm letting it go for $80 including postage to wherever, it will definitely fit in a red bag.

    The website is Dog Toys, Zoo Toys, Horse Toys - Aussie Dog Products - Aussie Dog Products if you want to check them out and see how much of a bargain this deal is . They also have the weight requirements there too.

    You can PM me if you like, or ask anything in here. It's a great toy, one a smarter dog than mine would likely enjoy!!

    These things are AWESOME if your dog is in to tug. I highly recommend it... And would buy if I didn't already have three! Villain the destroyer (he chews tractor tyres!!!) has not managed to wreck it!

    Good Luck J :-)

    If I attached that to my clothes line (haven't got any suitable trees), I think my dog would pull the post over.

    Haha Hya, maybe! I put it up in our tree on a sort of rickety branch, I honestly thought Jackson would pull the branch off, but he didn't.

    V+F, they're a great toy!! I was so excited when I got it, apparently moreso than the dog. LOL.

    Maybe you need to train him to play with it.

    Some of us agility nuts have to train our dogs to love tug, so we can train the agility equipment. There's a process, and when you're done, the dog will go nuts for the tug, any tug.

    example. session 1. in front of your dog You play with the toy, faking loads of fun, and then put it away where he can't get it. repeat several times over a couple of days.

    session 2, in front of your dog, you play with toy, and tease him with it. If he will play let him, but put it away way before he's done. Ie couple of tugs, and back in the cupboard. repeat several times over a couple of days...

    session 3, he should be nuts for the toy now, but again, put it away before he's done.

    Not sure how you transfer to on the tree, but my dog enjoys playing with my shoes without me. :S

    Session 4, you hang the toy up, play with it, play with the dog, then stop the dog from playing with the toy - by distracting him or blocking him. Then pretend to forget you left the toy out...

    Is that not teaching the dog to destroy things that you DO unintentionally leave out and have caught the dogs attention previously?

    Thanks for the tips

    I'd rather not turn this into something he has to train for though, or something I have to manipulate him into. Toys are for fun, he has others that he really enjoys, so I'd rather he just plays with them and is happy.

    teaching the dog to destroy things
    My dog does that anyway, this is just taking advantage of the motivation.

    I feel if she rips my ugg boots some more, it's my fault for failing to keep the door shut, ie letting her experience the fun of it...
