We've Been Shopping!
Here’s what we love…
This month we decided to just have fun and try out some toys!
by Busy Buddy
- A smart, food-motivated dog will love it, and it will keep him busy for a little while.
- Great way to feed a dog who wolfs down his food.
- You can put most any treat/food in it; for larger treats just break them into pieces.
- Some dogs might give up before they get it.
- Could be destroyed by a chewer (put it away when not in use).
Our foster Border Collie figured it out pretty quickly but it still took him awhile to get the treats/dog food out because they dispense a few at a time. A Lab friend just kept taking it to his humans to open it for him!
Three Paws for the right dog.
The Dog Casino
by Nina Ottosson
- A ton of fun to watch your dog (or cat!) learn to do and play with.
- Makes use of a dog’s natural foraging instinct and desire to work for his food.
- An online reviewer said it made a great toy for a laid-up dog (post ACL surgery) who needed something stimulating to do during her recovery.
- You will have to train your dog how to use it (not a lengthy process).
- Like most “interactive” dog games/toys on the market, it’s a little pricey (around $45), but will last longer than little squeaky toys, and poses a fun challenge for the dog.
Our foster Beagle, a middle-aged guy with a voracious appetite, learned how to do this fairly easily, and he gets extremely excited when he sees it.
Four Paws because it’s such a fun experience for you and your dog!
