My 5 month old pup won't play with any of his toys, he barely shows interest in them, unless your waving it in front of him, he won't chase after it. He is still a happy dog though. Doesn't care about the soft toy, tennis balls, or tug rope, I can't really play with him... He is a spaniel mix, might be a beagle. Though he tries to chew on my laptop charger lead, i only just got him a few days ago, he has gotten quite confident since then.
