As anticipated - the original tough soft toys were disemboweled within seconds.

I like the idea of the fleece plaits - I don't own any fleeces, so will scour the charity shops for some!!

Thanks guys.

Thanks, Kez.

I guess that makes a lot of sense!!! I have ordered 2 of the ones that I have mentioned above. I'll see how they go, and let you know.

But what you say makes sense. The dog that I was brought up with (rescued dogs separated from her mother too young) used to love sucking on the heads of soft toys - my mother used to buy her teddies from charity shops - because 'they don't make them like the old ones'.

I like your logic and will give kids toys a try if these don't work

Thanks.

Thanks, Dottie.

Yes, we have Nylabones and antlers. But Mili loves soft toys so so much, I feel like I'm short changing her by not allowing her to have any.

They're not badly priced, so may give one a try, and see how they get on.

Hi guys

Does anybody have any experience with these soft toys?

I have a destructive chewer of a sprollie, but she loves soft toys. Unfortunately they rarely last more than a few days.

Just wondering if these live up to the hype of being 'tough'.

Thanks in advance

Owen

EDIT: It seems I can't post a link. But if you search for 'goDog Hear Doggy Plush Whale Ultrasonic Dog Toy, Large, Blue
' on Amazon, it should come up.

Thanks, Dottie.

I've deliberately steared clear of the tomato sauce ones. Mine are very susceptible to having runny tummies if they have anything too rich. But good to know that sardines are ok to give as a treat. Thabks

Thanks, David.

It's good to know that it will do no harm. I guess the intention isn't to supplement, but simply as a treat for them. Perhaps I will treat them once a month rather than weekly.

Again, thanks for your help. Good to know I needn't drain the oil too!!

Hi all.

I have 2 Sprollie bitches that I have recently switched from Wainwrights to Akela. When they were on Wainwrights I would give them a tin of sardines every Saturday morning instead.

Now that I have switched them to Akela - I'm wondering if a tin of sardines is actually beneficial to them or not. Don't get me wrong, as a treat, they love it - but not sure if health wise it's good/bad/indifferent for them.

The tinned sardines I usually buy are in sunflower oil, that i rinse off under the tap before mashing it up for them. My mother always fed our dogs a tin of fish once a week when I was growing up - claiming it was good for their coats. Google seems to return mixed advice on the health benefits/detrements of a tin a week for the hounds. So any advice from you knowledgeable lot would be much appreciated.

Thanks.

Owen
