Home for Irish Setter Lovers Around the World
Has anyone any suggestions for indistructable toys for Saffy our Irish who has just passed 12 months?
We have had doggie chew ropes which have been disintegrated in a few dsys, tennis balls are stripped of their covering (and eaten if we don't get them off her in time!!)
Squeaky toys, Doggie teddies etc., Rubber Rings, Rubber Bones, have all gone the same way, they never last more than a week!!! She has a Kong, but hey! she's an Irish Setter and it's far too much trouble to fiddle and try and get titbits out, so she expects us to do it for her!!!!
Nyla Bones last but she gets fed up with them very quickly.
She likes to play and we need to find something suitable for her as she needs to be kept occupied.. She has destroyed the garden, digging holes in the lawn and chewing plants so any suggestions please !!
If I was younger yes I agree but being the wrong side of 65 don't think I'd survive! LOL!!
we used to have 3 but that was over 10 years ago!
My dogs love a kong stuffed with something tasty.
Sounds like she has loads of toys, but they are not a substitute for owner interaction and plenty of exercise. Destructive dogs are usually bored dogs and no amount of toys will compensate for lack of mental and physical stimulation.
How much exercise does she get daily and do you invent interesting games to work her mind as well as her body?
I can whole-heartedly recommend the
Fat Cat Inc Incredible Strapping Yankers Fish Dog Toy
After 3 weeks of continuous chewing, yanking, slapping and chucking about the thing is still as it was when I bought it (if a little more dirty but I'm convinced a full spin in my washing machine will be a walk in the park by comparison).
It has a very gentle squeek, too, so is easy on your (!) ears.
not sure where you are but if not in Aus. may be worth getting some of these toys set over.
check out the site they are fatastic." Aussie Dog Products "guaranteed for years they also make toys for zoo animals.
