The popular Puppington Pods I have provided with a throwing band, so these great toys make you and your dog even more fun! Play, fun and surprise now with any reward for your dog. Because the right motivation in training should be in the first place.
Puppingtons Pods are one of my favorite training toys!
– Why? The Puppingtons Pods are just awesome!
The dogs can open the Puppingtons Pods on their own to grab food from inside the toy. This can be beneficial in many ways.
My Border Collies, for example, who with the “normal” ball quickly get into such a euphoric level of playing that this overly high motivation then quickly turns into too much excitement for work and on “clear thinking”, are optimal with the Pods. Because they first take the food from the pod and then retrieve it in peace, they do not go so high and I simply have another great “intermediate level” to reward.
Dogs like my Dalmatian, on the other hand, who are otherwise hard to motivate to play, very quickly find pleasure in dashing after the Puppington Pod to then unpack their own food. Teaching them to retrieve becomes almost a matter of course.
The Pods have a loop on the closed side, to which I have already attached a PPM rope with a hand loop. Through the band with the hand loop, the toys are much better to throw (at least if you’re like me not so great throwing can… 😉 If you want to incorporate a small Zergelspiel times briefly, you can so easily use the band and spare the pod itself. Personally, I love the pods, for example, to reward at a distance, use them extremely happy when hooping and also for anything else where the dogs like to work away from me.
The Puppingtons Pods have a soft neoprene outer shell and a black fabric inner, making them super safe and soft to catch. The material is very sturdy and in our house, despite frequent use, the Pods have proven to be very durable.
approx. 7 cm in diameter, weighs approx. 40-50 g with wrist strap,
the 8 mm strap with wrist loop is 20-30 cm long
approx. 9 cm in diameter,weighs approx. 90-100 g with hand loop.
the 12 mm strap with hand loop is 25-35 cm long
The pods are lightly filled with non-toxic fabric.
The three parts of each pod have a Velcro closure that keeps the pod closed until opened. Even small treats thus remain in place when thrown and do not fall out. For the dogs, it is after a little practice an easy to open the pod to get to the reward.
The Puppingtons Pods are a real enrichment for my personal training!
Tips & Care
The Pods should really be used as a toy to play with your dog. unsupervised and for dogs that like to chew on toys, I would not provide them.
To ensure our dog stays happy and healthy after playing, the Pods should be allowed to dry open after each use. If it gets dirty, it cleans up very well with a damp cloth. The manufacturer advises against machine washing.
I can say from personal experience that 30 ° washes were absolutely no hurdle for my pods, but of course I can not assume liability for this.
