I have a homemade flirt stick that Alfred enjoys a lot. Trouble is that he's gotten used to it. It's become too routine because he will play for 10 minutes or so and then start veering toward the gate, ready to go for a run. So I have to get his attention and rope him back into playing just so I can decide it's time to stop instead of him. That got me thinking...what else could I use to play that will get the job done similar to a flirt stick? I'm open to most anything-even better if I can make it myself. Thanks all!
