I've went through almost every toy in the store. He chews up bones and toys in a heartbeat. He hates kong toys for some reason and will never play with them. What toys do you guys like. Do any of you guys use a flirt pole to play with your dog.

What are you stuffing in the kong? Deacon never played with it until i stuffed it with good stuff. I dont know how i survived with out it. Also soup bones form the meat department at the grocery store are great too.


What is a flirt pole!?!?!?

You have to give the Kong some value....start throwing it and have your dog retreive it, or stuff it with something. Without any "value" to it, its kinda a boring toy. They take to long to tear apart...dont squeak... Mine used to ignore it too. They always want what they think they cant have.

Flirt Pole

A flirt pole reminds me of the cat toys that has a pole with a string and like a mouse on the end. Here is a site with a flirt pole. There is a couple way you can do it. Such as with a pvc pipe with a rope running through it with a knot at the end ( so the rope don't get pulled through ) and on the other end you can put a dog toy of some sort. I heard these are good for like tug-o-war and stuff like that.

Not a Doberman site, But I'm sure the concept will work.

That's fine if you want to spend all your time "dog fishing". Personally, I would want some toys he enjoyed playing with by himself, giving me a break!

We used those when Rommel was a puppy, I made one with PVC, rope, and a rag...just like you said. But even at 4 months old Rommel could pull the rope off of the pole, I doubt it would last very long with a 1 year old doberman. I would suggest maybe a tug made of jute, or the firehose toys. There arent many toys that a determined doberman cant destroy....good luck :D

BackinBlack: Did it work well for you?
Like I said, it worked well for a short time, but at about 4 months old he could rip the rope out of the stick in a very short time of playing tug. The teaser stick helps to build prey drive, but I dont think it would last more than about 2 minutes with a 1 year old doberman. Try getting a tug and attaching a leash to the handle that way you can play tug with him and not run the risk of missing fingers when he decides to re-grip on it. www.fordogtrainers.com has good prices and so does www.hallmarkk9.com
the ball on a rope is also a good toy. Good Luck, let us know how it turns out :)
