The Million Dollar Tennis Ball

I am going to tell you a secret about the most amazing toy I have discovered

Now I know what you are thinking. If your dogs are anything like mine they will have probably lost about a million tennis balls over the years.

But then they may have probably found about 950,000 so it evens out I guess

No you read correctly I’m not talking about a million tennis balls, I’m talking about THE Million Dollar Tennis Ball…

So what is the ‘Million Dollar Tennis Ball’?

Well dear reader it is without a doubt THE greatest dog toy in the WHOLE world.

Let me describe it for you in more detail

  • It’s small, about the size of an apple and it fits in my dogs mouth perfectly
  • Its covered in a green fuzzy material that my dogs go bloody nuts over.
  • Its bouncy so it jumps around a lot, and they love catching it.
  • Its light so I can throw it and carry it in my pocket too

I know, sounds pretty cool doesn’t it..

Hang on..

What do you mean it sounds like a regular tennis ball 

Well yes ok, maybe it is similar to a regular tennis ball

I mean your dog could technically chew it up and choke on it but then you would never leave the Million Dollar Tennis Ball with your dog would you?

Why not?

Well the choking issues aside the surest way to get your dog to think something is boring and not very valuable is to leave it lying around the house.

I know I’ve done it myself!

Remember when your dog was a puppy and you said ‘He has all these dog toys on the floor and he still takes my slippers!’

Why does he?

Well because every time he picks them up he gets a reaction from you

So from now on flip the whole thing round.

Do not leave any toys you want your dog to be interested in playing with you with just lying around the house.

Make them special, make them valuable, make them desirable.

Make them come alive, make them your things that you just share with him 

Treat them like they are the greatest things in the world and basically make a big fuss of them just like you did with the slippers.

Treat them like this and your dog will want them. Then you can get him to do some pretty clever things to get what he wants.

Like a sit, or a down, or a spin or a bow. Or an amazing recall. Or ignoring that dog over there.

If you do this your dog too can have his very own ‘Million Dollar Tennis Ball’

Well he can when you share it with him!
