How many different types of toys do they have? (Kong’s, ropes, balls, stuffed) What are their favorite ones?
Red has A LOT of toys... let's see, he has:
- Plush stuffed animals with squeakies
- Tug-of-war rope
- Tennis balls
- Bad Cuz (those squeaky rubber balls with feet)
- Holee Roller
- Kong frisbee
His favorite are the stuffed squeaky animals, the Bad Cuz, and the Kong frisbee. He doesn't play with the other listed toys at all, unless I initiate the game.
Are they destructive with their toys? How long do they last?
Even with the stuffed animals being his favorite (therefore they take quite a beating), he has never shredded one yet (in the 7 weeks he's been palying with them). He shakes them and chews them, but he has never ripped one yet. He hasn't "killed" any of his toys yet, thankfully
Do you have a “Serial Stuffie Killer”? (Stuffed toys that are shredded beyond recognition) or do they play with them nicely?
Nope, as I mentioned above, Red doesn't shred any of his "stuffies". He shakes and chews them constantly but he hasn't disemboweled one yet!
Do they with the toys by themselves or do they play with you or other dogs? If you play with them, What games do you play?
Red plays with the toys himself a lot, but his preference is to play with us. He'll bring a sodden stuffie over and lay it in our laps so we'll throw it for him. And he lays down and squeaks his Bad Cuz NON-STOP until we take it away, LOL
He doesn't have any other dogs to play with on a regular basis, but he has tried to offer his toys to the cats to play with, but they are not interested, haha
Have you seen any toy aggressive behaviors with all toys or only with certain ones?
Nope, no toy aggression at all. He knows that if he gives it to us, the game of fetch will continue so he's happy with that!
