Oops...I knew I shouldnt play ball in the house...

OK...Aspen has been bringing me his ball all morning. He normally chases it and brings it back. Now I decided to start bouncing it and seeing if he'd catch mid flight.

Well, I think I made an oops. I have been online everyday for 8weeks now...morning til night looking for jobs (I was laid off ) Well, today I stood up to bounce hte ball on the carpet. Aspen launched into the air to catch it...but landed on the love seat that is a dual recliner. The recliner part popped out which scared him and he was launched about 4ft to the side. Now he is jumpy and runs from the ball. Ugh! How to get him back to playing with balls?????

Hopefully he will calm down and go back to playing. Maybe you can leave the ball near him and see if he goes to it after a bit. Poor guy! If it was Wolfie, he would have attacked the recliner. LOL. You're lucky that didn't happen.

He did bring the ball back to me...but if I rolled it to him, he jumed. I will let him settle down a bit and try again. I am glad he didnt attack the sofa. I reclined the loveseat near him afterwards and it didnt seem to bother him, just the ball...

Since my oldest dog doesn't destroy his toys, I used a nerf ball for inside catch games. Well that was until the little white she devil came along, she shredded his nerf ball.
What about just rolling it.
