Some very smart shelties play with toys at Bark & Fitz
I met a couple of very smart smart shelties today at Bark & Fitz down on Doyle Street in Halifax today - Griffin and May May - and they demonstrated an interactive toy that someone had emailed me about just a couple of days ago that I thought was really neat.
There's a whole bunch of toys that come from Europe - made by "Nina Ottosson" - and they really make your dog think, and you sort of have to work with your dog too - the website where you can look at them is at http://www.nina-ottosson.com/index_english.htm - It turns out that Christine Greeening at Bark & Fitz has brought some of them in to sell at her store here in Halifax, which is really neat.
So I took some video of the shelties playing with the toys - Griffin is the first one up, but I've got to say that May May - the 2nd one I video'd - got it almost immediately - maybe it's because she watched Griffin doing it first! haha!
While I was there it was really hard to not buy one of these "on the go" dog bags. I have a serious weakness for purses - and one that is specific for dog owners - now THAT was hard to walk away from. I may have to go back....
