Looking for a toy to keep our dog entertained.

Recommended Posts

We have a 2.5 year old Miniature Dachshund named Ollie. Poor thing just seems SO bored!!! I've been sick for awhile now so most of the time I just lay on the couch. He is starting to annoy me... in a funny, cute sorta way cheesy.gif He just follows me EVERYWHERE! And when his Dad comes home he won't even pay attention to him! He is like my little shadow. Argh!! lol All day he just gives me these puppy dog eyes that are horrible little guilt trips, and then he grunts at me in a very pathetic manner.

 

Needless to say, Dachshunds are pretty demanding little guys. They are an awesome breed though - Ollie is just the BEST! We had to give away his "brother" a couple months ago, and he is doing SO well at my Grandparents being the only dog. But Ollie just REALLY needs/wants another companion, and it breaks my heart! sad.gif The good news is we do have plans to get him one, but the bad news is that it won't be until AFTER the wedding - so next Summer.

 

Meanwhile, I need some good toy ideas for him!!! He is a STRONG chewer! So anything with squeekies he just tears them up. Kongs don't interest him in the least... Right now I just gave him a "bone" (it's really an all-natural cow penis tendon rofl.gif but don't tell him that! rofl.gif). That will last him a little while, but I need something that I can give him everyday to help keep him entertained. I don't like to give him these bones too often because he needs to be on a diet (he weighs 14 lbs and the vet says he should be 10-12)... plus, at $4 a pop it's hard to keep him in supply! lol

 

OK so all you dog lovers/owners out there - what keeps YOUR little guy/girl entertained?!? We need HELP! STAT! pinkie.gif

I have the same problem with my yellow lab, she chews through everything I give her, and then some, including my shoes, except the kong and again not much interest there. So anyone with good advise, help us out

My little pug Obi is major OCD about his toys. He spends all day rearranging them around various parts of the house. It's really adorable to watch! Just yesterday he was moving his rhino to different rooms and kept going up and down the stairs. It was too cute because he couldn't see around the gigantic rhino in his mouth so he kept knocking into things! When I would call his name he would turn his little head and look at me with that huge rhino in his mouth. Ahhhhh painfully cute :).

 

My advice is to make sure to rotate his toys and never leave the same ones out for too long. Same thing with chews/bones, don't let him finish it in one sitting. Then he'll be excited to get it back another day! Kong was going to be my other suggestion but sounds like you've tried that. What about a plain tennis ball? For some reason Obi loves them!

LOL - Obi sounds adorable!!! Good advice about switching the toys. I try and do that when I think of it, but you're right - I should do that more often. If I had something else to give him, then I'd take away his "bone" but right now I just can't bare to do that, he's going nuts over it!!

 

As for the tennis ball - he just chews the fuzz off and then poops it out! DOH!

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
    • I think you should approach the dentist. That would be the best idea as of now.
