Well, I'm happy to say that both Poodles now have a basket full of toys (to share) and they know what to do with them! But it took some teaching...
Teddy, on the other hand, likes to de-stuff things and his preferred stuffies are small and soft. He loves "Chickie" and "Bun-buns" the best. Both Poodles know the names of their stuffies. If you ask them to get one by name, they (almost) always will! Once, I asked Teddy to go find Bun-buns and he ignored me to chew on a nyla bone, so D'Art when and got it out and left it in front of Teddy!
Not only are toys cute, but I believe they are essential to stimulating, as Poirot would say, "the little grey cells". Toys keep dogs minds active, engaged and interested.
What is your dog's favorite toy?
