i've gotta make this flirt pole! thanks for the suggestions everyone, I'll try to be more patient. It has become apparent that my husband and I really need to train Theo on leave it, drop it, and bite inhibition, because I don't want him breaking skin everytime I try to take something hazardous out of his mouth. He really values those woodchips, ugh!!!

The flirt pole is great, we made ours out of a small hazel branch, binder twine, and a sock. It gets used twice a day sometimes (until something revolting diverts his attention)

One more suggestion. We, just by chance, found a tennisball when we were out walking. Ever since then I take one with me, and I'll just throw it ahead of us, Charlie goes after it and then keeps it for at least a few minutes(then he drops it because something - a ship in the distance, that old man with a stick, a water cockroach... whatever became more interesting). But he does keep it in his mouth probably 50% of the time of our walks(so he wont look for other stuff), which means 50% less digging around in his mouth for me. Doesn't solve it like a proper "leave it" would, but it does make my life easier. Worth a try.

That's something I might try too. Today Raffles picked up and carried a stick (well, more of a branch) for about half his walk, so maybe I'll try one of those fake sticks.
