Looking for Aussie Toy

by Peggy Humbert
(Pensacola, FL)


Our Aussie is 1 year old and full of energy. We have a fenced yard. When I take him out to play, he may chase a ball two or three times but then decides to wander around and dig or something else. So he isn't using up the energy he has and winds up doing bad things. We have tried frisbee, different balls, kong, etc. Does anyone have a suggestion of a toy that he will love so much that he will run and play?

I have all sorts of balls and a couple of soft frisbees. My Aussie also gets bored with them. I switch from one type toy to another during play. But the ones that she plays with the longest are empty plastic water bottles. The thin, noisy, crinkly ones are best. Also gallon size water or milk bottles work. She will chase and crunch and zoom around with any of these far longer than any toy I've purchased. The bigger, heavier ones are easier to throw, but all work well. You can even use a rope to tie two gallon size ones together for a different type toy.

A flirt pole is a great way to engage your dog, you can make one or buy one. We also have a jolly pet soccer ball that ours likes to herd around the yard. They are practically indestructible, and the only ball she can't destroy. Even with holes in The ball, it holds the ball shape. We also put out a kiddie pool for after play cool down.

Wobbly Ball

I bought my 6 month old Aussie a wobbly ball (amazon $10) and it keeps him occupied for at least an hour.
