Title: lotus balls
Post by: Lisa Schmit In The Zone Agility on August 13, 2014, 01:22:06 PM
Premier pets is discontinuing lotus balls.    I use them at every seminar I give. They have revolutionized dog training !  I am so dishearten they are discontinuing this awesome toy.

I know many of you use them also, so wanted to pass on this info.   

Here is the webpage to email Premier about Lotus balls. Maybe if enough of us contact them, they will rethink their decision to discontinue them.

Email sent.  I just purchased four small ones from another source as Pet Safe is sold out. I recommend these to all my students, so disappointed.

I have never seen these, just curious what makes them special?

Thanks, Kathie

Kathie,   They have three sides that velcro together and you can put treats in the center and throw them  they are wonderful for teaching your dog to go on ahead of you or for teaching them to turn in a certain direction.  the dogs very quickly learn to push the center open for the treat.  here's a link to a YouTube video of some dogs opening them:   https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Zd3_dwSWqFA (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Zd3_dwSWqFA)

I received a reply from Premier Pets.   This is their reason for discontinuing the balls.

We are discontinuing the entire Rip n Tug line of toys due to low sales volume. There is no safety issue with the toys.

So, we need some large line of pet supplies to purchase them.   Any ideas?
