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.

sound

SOUND Stimulation Toys


Why sound stimulation?
Dog’s brains are hard-wired to orient to certain types of sounds. That’s why high-pitched and intermittent sounds are especially good at grabbing your dog’s attention. These brain connections help wild canines, like wolves, find distant or small prey by noticing sounds in their environment.  Our dogs retain these same brain connections. Noisemakers in dog toys grab our dog’s mental ‘attention’ centers, and we can benefit from that genetic gift. It’s a part of their natural responses to their world. Their brains guarantee us that they will notice a noisy toy.

How do I use sound stimulation toys to my advantage?
The Bottle Rapper Tug toy is a great sound stimulation toy for tugging and interactive play. A sound stimulated dog will love the crunchy noise made by the plastic bottle inside the ‘Rapper’.

Use the Bottle Rapper the same way you would any tug and interactive dog toy to stimulate play and reward behavior. You may need to compress the bottle inside the toy for the dog to understand the toy is inside the wrapper. Once he knows the bottle is inside the toy, the two nylon handles will allow you to retain possession and control of the toy.

When your water bottle wears out, just put a new bottle into the toy and you’re ready to continue your training!

Sound stimulation toys are for which dogs?
Some fearful dogs that are afraid of noises, don’t like noisy toys, but most dogs do. If your dog is sound stimulated, you’ve probably already noticed that he likes squeakers and clickers. Many dogs seem to enjoy their ability to make the sounds themselves by biting down on the toy.
