    Sorry to hear about Cindy

    There is no psychiatrist in the world like a puppy licking your face.

    Thank you guys for the sympathy received it is really much appreciated.

    on the bright side - Zeus is 2 years old now and we have been giving him more attention from the family
    mostly me and my son whos now 4 years old. We spend a lot of time during the afternoon playing with Zeus
    fetching balls and run around. So a lot of activities happening.

    I want to train him more and make him fit. I have existing Dina Bolts from the side of the house where he stays.
    It used to be where our clothes line is but we moved it closer to the back door. So anyway, I bought triangular
    bracket and bolted that on the wall. Then I added a spring and attached a rope toy at the end of it so he can
    grab it and start playing, my problem is that he just stares on it and do nothing. it has been 3 days now with
    no progress. He tries jump but never bites. In addition, it is not too high - its not like he needs to jump a foot
    high. Any help and advise?

    thanks

    Probably need a photo - to see what it actually looks like. How close is it to the wall of the house ?

    If it has been up for 3 days - he may have had a play - but hurt himself - so would be very reluctant to do that again.

    The best toys like this are attached to a tree branch - where there is a lot of space around it !

    Its about a foot away from the wall - that might be the answer

    but the problem no tree(s) in his area

    Does your pup know how to play ? Do you play with your pup - or is it all just serious stuff ?

    Maybe you need to teach you and your pup how to play !

    Do you play tug with your pup ?

    Maybe he doesn't like the toy that you have put up for him ?

    Just a few thoughts and questions !

    Maybe you need to teach you and your pup how to play ! Yes I think I should start doing this - will check the links you provided - thanks for that

    Do you play tug with your pup ? I use to play tag with Cindy - I cannot remember playing tag with Zeus - like I said more of running and fetching games

    Maybe he doesn't like the toy that you have put up for him ? Hopefully, so its easy fix and buy another..... again he loves playing with balls

    Just a few thoughts and questions !
    I think we made Zeus nature so complaisant and loss "drive"?

    Never truer words said ! We seem to get lost in the training to get our pups perfectly well behaved and forget how much fun it is to actually play with them !

    Riley loves playing this with kids – and he is very good at it ! Bonus – no more whinging kids and they all end up totally pooped – including the pup !

    Find:

    https://www.google.com.au/search?q=h...+find+with+dog

    Riley’s latest ‘find toy’ is a manky tea-towel with a knot tied in the middle of it. I change regularly what he has to find – to keep both of us on our toes !

    The tea-towel has become a problem one – because it is the only one so far – that he seems to have to make a lap of honour whilst throwing it up in the air and catching it again. Problem is when it lands on the fan blades - result - one very upset pup !

    There you are – heaps of fun things to do with your pup – and surprisingly enough – they are all still classed as training your pup !
