Has anyone bought a toy their dog hated?

I was dead certain my girl would love one of those balls that make noises when they are touched and rolled around - but nooooo!

She's not exactly frightened of it (I don't think I've found anything she is frightened of yet, still at 'that age' ;)) but she just walks around it and barks at it sometimes. She runs away if I roll it towards her.

Will stick to the silent toys from now on!

I make my dogs soft, fleece tugger toys to play with, they love them and they don't hurt when they hit you with them. :lol:

The problem with squeaky toys is they all want the same one and then there could be problems. :roll:

Bella got several ones for christmas from different people, she just looks at it then looks at me as if to say "you honestly expect me to play with that". She is much happier with the 99p squeeks she got instead.
