What if you make the toys part of something you do together. Maybe he just doesnt really know what they are for...Sort of like how you might add animation to a toy you've bought for your Kittie to show it the potential fun it can have.

I wouldnt recommend it....but our dogs were always raised to play with socks. You can imagine the number of socks that were pulled off our feet because of that dumb idea, but Im sure you could do the same thing with a designated Doggie toy. We would get power excited the Socks and Tennis balls, once the Dog was interested in what we were so dang interested in, she'd want to play. We'd play together as a family, taking turns throwing or tugging while everyone else paid special attention to the dog and how well she played the game. Eventaully, if you looked at the dog and said "Where is your Ball/Sock" shed go nuts and go find it. We could toss it a few times or play a round or two of tug and then she'd wander off with it and play with it on her own for hours.

Maybe your pooch just needs to learn how to play. And that it is Super Power Fun.



Cheers
