hit up stillwater. i just got my hides from them 3 days ago. they are awesome. they smell really heinous because they are cured not tanned, but my doig went nuts. she will usually play with her flirtpole for 10 or 15 minutes before getting bored, but with these hides she will go all out for like 45 minutes or more if i let her.

Hiya All- :)

I just received my box of hides yesterday, and I was suprised how heavy the box was roflmao

As Roxie mentioned, I would probably open the box in the garage or outside, because it does come with a unique odor :yucky:

I can understand why most of the dogs hear go crazy over them, they are thick, big and juicy lookin lol

I've contacted Shane from Stillwater Kennel on how to store the remaining hides and recommendations on how to attach the hides to a springpole and flirtpole. I will relay is reply here.

For those of you who already have them, how are you folks dealing with this? Also, do you cut the hide down to size?

I won't be able to do anything till tomorrow due to my job :tongue:

Jammin636-

You might want to call or email Shane at Stillwater Kennel and ask him if there is anything that you could do to your hides that will entice Steel to bite it.

Have Fun Everyone :peace:

Hey All-

Shane from Stillwater Kennel, has replied back regarding the storage and the best way to attach the cow hide.

Here is what he wrote:

"I would store them in cool dry place.

The best way to attach them is to take a razor and cut a hole about 12" in one end, about 3" from the end, and run a rope through it and tie it.

Thanks,

Shane "

I hope this helps.

Yup, Jake loves his new flirtpole bait.

Unfortunately for Jake and I, it is currently raining here in Portland so we had only about 15 minutes of play time till the rain came down harder. But he thoroughly loved hitting the cow hide.

Can't wait till the weather lets up where I can give him a realy good workout.

The Northwest is beautiful, but I sure hate the rain :crybaby:

Have fun everyone :thumbsup:
