Your dog receives so much love and attention from you, and he enjoys your company. In return, he gives you loyalty and unconditional love. But there are a few things your dog wants you to know. So, let’s hear what he has to say…
1. Educational toys
I love it that you give me toys to play with, and I love all the wonderful things that come out of those shopping bags! The balls and tug toys are great, but only if you are there to play with them with me. It’s really hard to play tug-of-war on your own, and the ball just lies there.
It would be so much nicer for me if you could also get me some toys that you can hide food in. I’ve seen my friends next door chewing away at those funny red things – I think they call them Kongs. Their mom and dad fill them with all sorts of yummy things and then give them to JoJo and Lucky when they go out. That way, they can still have fun if their humans are not around. Getting bits of food out, or even just the yummy taste, is almost as much fun as a game of tug-of-war! I have heard that things like cow hooves and smoked pigs’ ears are also really nice to chew on. But, hang on, then I overheard JoJo and Lucky’s mom telling them that hooves can be dangerous for us dogs – we could choke on little bits or make our gums bleed while chewing on them – let’s maybe rather avoid those. So, to sum up, can we have two types of toys in our house, please – the ones that you can play with, with me, and the ones that I can play with and enjoy on my own?
