|Soooo, are you going to throw the ball or what?!|
Needless to say, this girl doesn't need any lessons on building play drive. She's got it pretty covered. That is, until we introduced her to a new toy this week.
Meet the AEROBIE Pro Ring. A soft rubber frisbee that we picked up at REI for $10.
We specifically bought this frisbee for Athena to play with because as much as we love the ChuckIt! Ball Launcher, Athena is just a tad bit obsessed with it. So, we wanted to find another park toy that would not only allow for some vigorous exercise, but would help to eliminate some of Athena's OCD behaviors towards her ball and launcher. Also, we had seen a dog and handler at the park a couple of weeks ago doing super cool tricks with a frisbee, so B asked about it and we decided that we needed to be that cool too, so we bought the same one.
Athena loves ALL toys and moving objects, why wouldn't she love this super fancy frisbee?
|I like to wear the frisbee as a necklace. I do not like to play with it!|

So, any ideas on how to help Athena learn how to play/retrieve the frisbee? Maybe our choice in frisbee was poor and we need to look for a more "dog friendly" model?
