Andrew Taylor of New Zealand’s South Island grew frustrated with the local dog park’s lack of good throwing sticks, so the 59-year-old decided to take matter in his own hands and create a ‘Stick Library’ for all the local pups to enjoy.

Taylor came up with the idea when he was trimming trees by his house and asked himself what he could do with all of the leftover branches.

He pruned and smoothed each branch into the perfect sized dog stick and put them all into a crate. The box’s engraving reads: “Stick Library – please return.”

‘While trimming the trees, my dad found himself with a lot of dead branches, and knowing from experience how hard it can be to find a good stick, and that the new dog park was opening soon, he had the idea that he would save them and put them in some kind of box.

‘When the park opened on November 30, mum and dad took Bella and sure enough there were no good sticks.

‘Dad is the type of guy that is always thinking of things to make, so the next day he found a suitable crate and made the sign for the top. ‘He decided to call it the stick library because it implied that you return the stick once you’re finished with it.’
