Thread: Playing with Buster...

    Default Playing with Buster...

    As some of you guys know, Buster is my new about 10 week old puppy. I know that they're typically couch potatoes, not very athletic little guys, so I was wondering how you guys play with your dogs?

    I feel bad because I don't want Buster to be bored during the time we're home, but at the same time I don't really know how I can really play with him. What are some good ideas of toys or ways to play with him? and if he's doing his own thing and not bugging me for attention, should I not worry about him being bored? Thanks for the advice!

    It will be good for Buster to play - it will give him exercise and it will be fun!!! (For both of you!)

    Phatty's all-time favorite toy is a bottle buddy. You can get them at Carolina Pet Pantry. It's a cow (or sheep or pig, etc) with a plastic bottle inside (good noise maker). I'll throw that thing (we call it a piggie regardless of what animal I buy) and he'll chase it everytime. I do not leave him unattended with it though because he's a chewer and will tear it up ..

    My Brewer is 11 weeks old today and I wish I had your problem. He is so extremely hyper! Thats all he wants to do is play. Which I don't mind, but nothing gets done anymore around the house.

    Tuggy tuggy and more tuggy!

    Get some old socks, tee shirts, ropes and whatever. Tie a knot in them, wrap one end around your hand and let the bully grab the other and PULLLLLLL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! They love to play tuggy. It helps their teeth agony and it gives them a sense of work and accomplishment, as well as bonding with you.

    Always be sure they do not take the game into other areas and try to chew and pull non toy items.
    Even on the most awful of days, Hambone can get a smile out of me. I don't know what else to say other than, the bond one has with their dog is one of the most special things there is.
