Amazing Alternative to the Lotus Ball
The Lotus Ball is one of our most popular treat-dispensing toys, but not all dogs like Velcro. The lily was developed in conjunction with Rachel Evers, an agility instructor in California.
The Lily has extra “petals” and material at the top so that the dog can start opening the ball before his nose touches any Velcro. The Lily also has 4 petals instead of 3 (like the Lotus Ball) so that you have more leeway in how easy or difficult you make the toy to open based on how firmly you attach the Velcro on the 4 petals. Your dog can also pick up the Lily by one of the petals if he prefers rather than putting the whole toy in his mouth.
The base of the Lily, where you put the treats, is 4″ high and 2.75″ wide. The petals are 2″ long. The Lily is made from lightweight and durable Cordura so it can handle dirt and dog slime. Machine wash and line dry.
The Lily is an excellent toy for food-motivated dogs so that you can throw their reward during your agility training, and trainers around the country have come up with some very innovative ideas for using jackpot toys to teach contacts, distance skills, and much more!
