"Found" objects dogs love to play with

  • Mar 11, 2010
I'd love to hear everyone's stories about the amazing objects dogs find and play with.  I thought I'd share a couple of them here that my two have come up with.  The inventiveness of dogs always amazes me - and the things they find to play with sometimes have me rolling with laughter.

My dogs go to the local park at least once a day, and often find a treasure that becomes the favored toy of the day.  This is particularly true of my black lab who is fulfilled in life just carrying around a treasure she's found.

This morning, she found a piece of plastic tubing that was, at one time, the supporting ring from a soft flying disk.  She pranced proudly during our 2 mile walk with this 3 foot long piece of plastic hanging out of her mouth.

Other fabulous finds include:
  • popped soccer balls - the flatter it is, the better because it makes a great shaking toy
  • any piece of dirty and frayed rope - these apparently are great because she can chew on them, shake them, play tug with them and, and when she convinces someone to throw it for her, it flies through the air in exciting ways
  • long sticks are another great favorite - both dogs can tug on it, break it half, try to get it away from each other and they also make nice snacks - accordingly to my border collie mix, anyway
There are a couple of dogs that go to the local park who go crazy when they score an empty plastic bottle.  There are a couple of people I know who make it a point bring empties with them simply because it's so much watching these play with them.

This is one the things about dogs I love - they're so good at finding at objects and turning them into sources of fun.

Ah, this is why I love dogs -- they're so easily entertained and so easy to please! Thanks for these suggestions, Hollie :)

Betsy and Norman love big sticks. They play with them just like your dogs. Their vet credits them chewing on sticks for the reason they have never had to have dental work, even though they are almost eight years old. Betsy's favorite "found" toy is her daddy's work gloves. (You would think that he would learn to keep them out of her reach.) She waits patiently while he works in the yard...the minute he takes them off she keeps them safe for him...prancing and shaking them around the yard. At least he always know where to find them.

Yup! It's funny how much dogs love sticks. My border collie mix has a little ritual where every night when I take them out for their final evening pee, she looks and looks for stick to chomp on. she only does this at night - but she does it every night. It's so funny!

My boy loves water bottles.. He even has favorite brands that fit best in his mouth. Recycling day is a hoot. Each house has a toybox of oppurtunities...

Squeaky Toy and Tug Toy for Dogs I Just Love
I love trying out new toys for dogs before I decide whether or not to offer them on Camping Dog Supplies.  One of the coolest toys I've seen recently is from Kyjen   It is a squeaky toy and tug toy combination that's really cool and clever.  Both of my dogs (who have very different taste in toys) love them!  When I brought it out this morning, it got serious attention for hours before I took the girls out for their morning walk.      It's …
