I like something softer than the plastic sticks. To me the ball on the string works great...though not a loop because I have had their legs caught in the loop...in my backyard I use the kong on the rope because it doesn't bounce and has a nice throw without having to use the chuckit.

Be careful with that, too.
My dad managed to hit his Cairn Terrier in the eye with a Kong he threw and the poor dog's eye was so damaged that it had to be removed.

maybe we should just put our dogs in a bubble? or is there suffocation danger involved if the oxygen tank runs out?

My dog has grabbed random pieces of board (luckily without nails) when outside and there were no other toys available. Yesterday he was throwing the plastic outside water bowl around, even though there were plenty of toys. My friends says they once caught their boxer mix throwing landscaping bricks in the air for amusement. It's funny what they'll come up with to play.

I understand 100% what your saying. My dog does this, most recently it was the A Frame in agility. She went up/down it fine, but she was cautious at first. Then she decided that it was fun and literally went up and down that thing over and over. That was about a month ago and every week she does this with the A Frame. She now adds the teeter to it.
