Air Kong Fetch Stick   Leave a comment

Super puppy toy

 

I discovered this toy years ago when I had German Shepherd pups.  Using positive reinforcement training methods I needed a dog toy that could replace food rewards in training, partly because food only works up to a point to keep a dog’s attention and also because training for Schutzhund (IPO working trials) we want high drive and energy.  So a toy on a rope was called for but young dogs struggle to catch a ball easily.  There are various other ‘sausage’ type toys on the market, but not many of them have the rope attached for playing ‘tug of peace’ as a reward for correct heeling or recalls.

The Air Kong Fetch Stick works really well and I recommend them to my puppy school clients as they make great park toys to get a good recall.  This toy fits into the interactive toy category and should not be left lying around for dogs to chew on by themselves, or play tug with each other. It’s meant for human-dog interaction and should be put away after play.  It should retail at under R100.00.
