Interactive Dog Toys used to Reward Dogs on a Job Well Done.

Working Dog's for Conservation Foundation is a huge supporter with the Bow Wowzer Ball!

Rewarding your dog for good behavior or a job well done becomes easier when a favorite toy is involved. Working Dogs for Conservation Foundation (WDCF) is a non-profit organization comprised of wildlife professionals committed to developing and furthering the training and use of canine-human teams for non-invasive scientific inquiry, conservation, and management.

Alice Whitelaw, a biologist and trainer for the WDCF, rewards her four legged co-worker, Camas, with West Paw's durable dog toy, the Bow Wowzer ball. "The Bow Wowzer ball has been in continous use as my detection dog Camas' primary reward for over three years now. It's perfect for her sensitive mouth but tough enough to endure her very serious tugging," explains Alice while discussing her review in the February 2006 issue of National Geographic where Camas is shown lunging for her Bow Wowzer Ball.

Camas' reward is not sniffing out her objective, but the bright yellow ball she gets to play with when she does! Visit Working Dog's for Conservation Foundation's website for more information.
