What are you doing with the toys when you try to engage her?

Taking them out. Wiggling them in in front of her. Tossing them. What else can I do.

She has no interest when you are touching her, wiggling soft toys in front of her, dragging them around, etc?

She's does a little bit. But gets bored very quickly. Then turns her attention to the other things.

Just posted about this as well. Someone told me it takes a while that their dogs didn't really play till like 6 months. So you are not the only one with the issue I guess sometimes they are just not interested... My puppy is 4 months and will not play with me no matter how hard I try.

I will say.. just FYI.. Titan is 4 yrs, and has never realy been interested in toys per say. Fetch is it for him. If he has a toy it's expected to be thrown somwhere.. he has never been interested in them and just watned to chews. Which may be somthing to think about with yours. Do you have chews for her? Nylabones?? Marrow bones?? Kongs??

I was thinking of marrow bones. As there is a butcher next to me. Can you give 11wk old them? If so what type?
