smell

SMELL Stimulation Toys

Why smell stimulation?
Dogs love to follow their noses! Dogs are extraordinary among mammals when we consider their abilities in both reception and discrimination of odorants. And, while humans possess about five million scent receptors, our large breeds evidence over 200 million more than half of the canine nose committed to olfaction.

Top smells include wild animal smells like squirrels and raccoons, different and unusual smells, and of course food scents. Anything that excites a dog’s nose can be used to train and stimulate dogs to run fast and perform his best.

Smell stimulation toys are for which dogs?
Dogs love to smell two kinds of things more than any other, food and critters. So, tug toys that use both food items or real animal furs are going to excite your dog to his best performance.

How do I use smell stimulation toys to my advantage?
Use these toys the same way you would any other tug toy, the smell adds an extra level of excitement and stimulates your dog. Just being near a smell stimulation toy may get your dog excited.

Don’t some of these scent toys incorporate more than smell stimulation?
Yes! That’s because the more exciting our dog toys are the better they can motivate your dogs to perform. The more stimulators there are in a toy, the harder your dog will work to gain access to play time with it. The best toys out there stimulate more than one sense and some stimulate three senses at once.

bite

BITE Stimulation Toys

Why bite stimulation?
Bite stimulation is so universal that it’s special for us too. How much chewing gum do you suppose Americans consume each year? We don’t need special insight to appreciate that biting down on toys is really cool for dogs. Most dog toys are chew toys or bones of some sort, because all dogs are bite stimulated. Giving your dog a toy designed specifically to be safe and appeal to his desire to bite and grip will stimulate him to perform his best for the opportunity to play with that toy.

How do I use bite stimulation toys to my advantage?
An excited game of tug can get pretty physical with these toys because the dogs enjoy the tugging so much. It’s the biting and the tugging that they enjoy, so the game is all about hanging on and pulling as hard as you can.  Trainers use the tugging game to reward the behaviors they want, to gain their dogs attention, and to get their dogs to come to them at top speed. They reward the desired behaviors with a short game of tug.

Why not just put one attractor into each toy?
For toys to be highly attractive, it is beneficial to put more than one type of stimulator or attractor in each toy. Toys can have a tassel for visual excitement, sheepskin stuffing for scent (smell) excitement, AND be stuffed to just the right firmness to appeal to most dogs' bite pressure. If one attractor is good, then three is great! The more attractive a tug toy is the harder the dog learns to work to gain access to his dog toy and earn the privilege of playing with you.

How do I play with a bite stimulation toy?
Reward your dog with a good game of tug. Just by gripping the toy with his teeth he’ll enjoy the pleasant sensation of the toy flexing between his jaws. It happens automatically! You don’t have to do anything extra, just hang onto the toy and watch your dog get happy.
