Interactive Toys

Instead of a thirty second meal, find a toy you can put your dog’s dry kibble in so they must work for it. These are just a few suggestions. Look carefully at the toy. Is it safe for your dog? Will it last or will your dog destroy it in a few minutes?

Soak their dry food in water or meat broth until the kibble is soft and puffed up. Stuff this in the Kong and freeze. Most dogs will enjoy the Kong for a while when stuffed in this manner.
