What is a stuffed toy, puzzle toy, and a ball? A Lotus Ball! As you know, Madison is doing agility, and we were told a Lotus Ball would be a good thing for her to have as a reward, so Mom ordered her one.
Mom and Madison have awesome instructors for their agility classes. They are always very positive, helpful, and kind. Madison has been using just treats for rewards, but should try to get some play involved. The key to this ball is it holds treats in the middle.
Lotus balls are not easy to find. Mom went online and ordered this one in the larger size they had. It is the right size for Madison, and she did enjoy playing with it after some of her runs the other night at class.
The three leaves are held together with velcro. By peeling them open, you expose the treat area.
Mom then drops some treats in there to make it interesting and pushes the leaves back together.
By teasing Madison a bit with the smells of the ball, she is interested enough to want to play with it. Normally, none of us have any interest in a ball. She pushes her nose into the center and starts to split the leaves open so she can grab the treats.
The only downfall is the velcro seems to stick to her beard furs. It doesn’t hurt, and she can peel it off her beard with a paw swipe or two.
It seems to be a real nice toy to use for rewarding a good agility run, or any training for that matter. It is lightweight too. The only thing we find to be missing is a squeaker!
