Borg Ship Dog Toy

We were near a Pet Smart and Old Mother Hubbard’s Cupboard was bare. We always peruse the store for bargins. The boys really like large balls like volley and soccer size balls, but they pop them quite quickly. The fun isn’t completely over, as the ‘ball bowl’ is now just easier to grab onto. However, no more kicking, rolling or chasing. I checked into the cost for a durable dog product of that size.. Ouch $45. My boys can get through things both cheap and well-made. That is 5 cheap volley balls. I then spied a large square ‘ball’ – It’s a Chuckit Kick Cube. Hmmm. $12.50 clearance. How bad can this be? They could easily bite the edges instead of having to bite a round surface.Β  There is a rubber part in the square’s centers that make kicking it a breeze, however it’s very unpredictable.

As a Star Trek fan, I immediately dubbed it the Dorg Ship (Borg).

Oreo figured out how to pick it up first. Breck learned how to head-butt it out of Oreo’s mouth first!

    • Border Collies are a blast!! So intelligent and curious. Yours will learn very fast how to push your buttons to get that they want. Be aware that mine have learned to open doors, hide very well during storms and work a begging look like no other. Keeping them busy and worn out (chasing things!!) is your only chance for survival!!!
