Interactive toys for training
Description: : Fun with Fido interactive treat toys feature a treat pod which is shaped like a ball. There are two options - the treat pod which can be thrown like a ball or the tuggy which has the treat pod at the end. A treat is hidden within the treat pod by opening up the three sections. These section then close together like a flower petal and are held in place with Velcro. The dog discovers the treat by opening up the sections. Fun with Fido treat toys can be used for play or training and are very effective for activities such as agility, flyball and scent work.
What was your experience with this product?
Fun with Fido kindly sent me a selection of five toys - Small, Medium and Large Neoprene Pods, Extra Long Fleece Tuggy and Short Fleece Tuggy - so I was able to try them out on all my dogs.What did you like about these products?
These toys proved very popular especially with my nine year old Collie. My dogs were able to catch the ball and return it to me to get the treat from inside.
I liked the fact that the treat was difficult to get out as, for me, I want my dogs to return to me with the toy before getting the reward. My Springer X Collie is a determined dog and he opened the large toy to gain his reward. I shall be using the one with the long tail for Flyball with Izzy, my youngest dog who is just starting out in her Flyball career.
The bright colours were appealing to me as was the choice of material - either fleece or water resistant neoprene.
The different sizes makes the toy suitable for dogs of different sizes. I particularly liked the small toy on a long tuggy. This is very useful in Flyball to gain the dogs focus at a lower level.
All the toys washed very well with no colour loss.
