No Longer Wants To Play With Flirt Pole

I hope this section is okay..

Allie has always been fond of her flirt pole. She loves it. She loves letting me sling her around. It's the only form of exercise she gets, ever. She will play all day. I've played with her alot with it today, but we usually play more. We've played with it for about 4 hours today. She rested for a while. Then she's usually ready to play again right after. Well, I went out to play with her, she didn't even move. She just stared at it and watched it go by. At first I thought she wasn't feeling well, but then she ran up a tree trying to chase a squirell, she chased a tennis ball, and she even spazzed out and ran around the house.

Do you think she's getting tired of it?

I attached a new toy to the end, it didn't make a difference.

Maybe hide the flirt pole for a couple of days and bring it out again later. I know my dogs occasionally burn out on their toys. I try to rotate so it doesn't happen.

Sounds good to me. She's going to be pretty bored for a few days. Any ideas on what I can do with her?

Every day we play with the flirt pole, then we play with tennis balls and sticks.

On Wed. and Fri. we go and run agility.

Hmm, maybe instead of the flirtpole go to the park, or do some extra training?

Ah, there are other dogs at the park. And Allie and other dogs don't mix well. So, we try to stay on our property. XD I'll see if I can find some things to train her. Do you have any cool, favorite tricks you have taught your dogs?

Hmm. I really like "bow" which I cue as "curtsey" or "tadaaa!"
Also the shame/hide your eyes trick is cute

Oh oh you could play 101 Things to do with a box with her! Then she can make up her own tricks

Ohh! She does to a play bow on command. She also knows "Say your prayers". I'll try to see if she'll hide her eyes. Sounds fun. How did you teach yours to do it?
