Of all the toys featured at the recent Global Pet Expo in Orlando the one that appealed to me the most was the "Talk To Me" treat ball. This durable plastic toy can be filled with yummy treats that the dog releases by pushing the ball around ... and ball speaks to the dog, too! Owners record a 15-second message that plays when the ball rolls. This is fun for the dog and useful diversion when are away. For dogs with separation anxiety, hearing your dulcet tones may be just what the doctor ordered.
