Alaina Halpin, a playgroup coordinator at ACC, spoke of an energetic pit bull mix named Butch who benefitted from the rope toys made by Pillows For Paws. Through learning better behavior and socialization with his toy, Butch was able to find a loving, adoptive family.
“The rope toys were an important part of Butch and his in-shelter enrichment plan,” she said. “He was a young, enthusiastic pup who often chewed and played tug with his leash. We added the fleece rope toys from Pillows For Paws as a necessity for part of his walk. Doing so, we were able to set him up for more successful walks, as he learned to engage with more appropriate items as opposed to mouthing at leashes, hands and clothes.”
