    Default How do you keep you bully occupied?

    So our guys will not play unless one of us is engaged in play with them!! How do you keep them playing without you being involved? I've seem some of you mention favorite toys, bears, or bones, but will they play without you? For us, no matter the toy unless food is in it... one of us must be engaged - UGH!! Nitschke actually will 'talk' to us -- kind of like asking 'lets play'?

    Do Nitschke and Banks play together? Mine are either playing or fighting together, sleeping, or chewing on something very interesting...usually a toy but often something they're not supposed to be chewing . Do they get daily exercise? I find this helps since-this will get a lot of their energy out so when they're home, they nap and sleep well. When i do play with them it's usually a chasing game when we run around the house, me chasing one of them trying to steal their toy in their mouth(s). So again, they get pooped out (so do I), and then rest...and this way I can rest as well!

    LOL... Yeah, either get another bully or you can play fetch... just throw a toy clear across the room - do some work/chore/watch tv - then throw it again when he comes back with it... works for Bullie.

    I got Bullied and loving it!

    My dogs don't actually play much. They just want me to rub them. Louie and BabyGirl might run a few figure eights in the back yard. I have to walk them everyday so that they can get a good nights sleep.

    Whenever I'm too tired to play with Stig, I break out his Jolly egg toy. That'll usually keep him preoccupied, running, barking, chasing, etc, for a good 40 mins. Of course, I wait at least 1.5 hours before and after he eats because he can get really rambunctious with it.

    Jackson is the same way! He won't play with a toy unless we are involved by either chasing after him for it, or playing fetch with it. Once we walk away he drops whatever it is and follows us. He is even this way with toys w/ goodies/treats inside! One time my husband caught him chewing on my slipper so we bought him a fuzzy toy that looks like my slipper and thought "ok, this is it! We KNOW he likes soft/fuzzy stuff"....yeah right, he pays it no mind.

    I think my Jacks favorite toy is the Nylobone .. He chews on it, throws it aways, pounces on it and chews it some more. But mostly he likes to grab and chew whatever clothes or towels are left hanging on chair backs...

    It happens to the best of us. Wilsons pretty good about keeping himself occupied. He'll play or chew on his nlyas and he loves his stuffed animals. He's really fond of playing with an empty gallon water jug. As far as chasing a toy though that requires us.
