Mine love a peanut butter flavored tennis ball, and of course their squeaky rubber newspaper and squeaky rubber hot dog, but ABOVE ALL, they go nuts for sticks!

I think they just like whatever the other one has!

He goes crazy for his squishhy cricket ball, but do you have any suggestions as to what to get him as he likes plush toys like teddys but shreds them in seconds??

BUBBLES!!!!! They're cheap and Ollie will chase them around for hours if I kept it up. Aside from that, throwing a tennis ball and chasing lizards are his favorite outdoor games.

Many many dogs are injured, some are even killed from injuries from sticks - often where the stick lands in the ground, and the dog impales itself on the stick. There are some horrific injuries - read this link and you can google yourself for more


A friend has a 7 month old Deerhound, her husband was walking him and despite repeated warnings from her, he threw a stick for the dog, The stick was caught in a gust of wind and landed poking upwards. It impaled the dog through his windpipe, and actually was forced into the dog. Fortuantely it didn't splinter, but the damage was so severe that my vets were unable to sort him, and they had to rush him down to Edinburgh vet school. He had an emergency tracheostomy.

The dog is ok thank goodness, he will never be able to wear a collar again, and they ended up with a bill for several thousand pounds :eek:

I use this inside, but it's great because it has a soft center (Ollie loves soft toys but also chews them up!) and rope on the ring around it. He's had it a while and loves it, plus he hasn't done any damage to it yet, which is a miracle.


These, by the same brand, are also difficult for them to tear apart, but are still soft.


These are Ollie's fave balls...indestructable and really bounce!


He also likes these (but I couldn't find the small ones- these are the large ones shown).


If you're in the states, Petco and Target sell many of these.
