Give your dog some mental exercise and fun with a treat dispenser toy - put your dog's food or tasty treats in a toy and your dog works to get to the food. Especially for puppies, it's a great way to keep dogs entertained.
By nature, dogs are made to hunt, scavenge and work for their food. So these treat dispenser toys will give your dog some work and opportunity to use their problem solving skills. They are especially helpful for puppies as they can keep them entertain for long periods of time and as a result they are less likely to destroy other things in your home. They're also great for dogs that have behavior problems which might be a result of sheer boredom, often due to a lack of physical exercise, problem solving opportunities and outdoor exploration. We're sure you'd prefer him chewing on a food toy rather than your shoes.
Food Stuffed Bone
You can get something as simple as a food stuffed bone to an interactive dog puzzle such as a Star Spinner or Kibble Drop Treat Dog Toy. Some dog trainers even recommend that you give up feeding your dog from a bowl and instead use these interactive dog food and treat dispenser toys to give your dog more mental challenges.
If your dog is quick to figure these toys out, an excellent way to keep them busy for a long time is to get a food stuffed bone or classic Kong, fill it with the treat (e.g. peanut butter or wet dog food) and then freeze it. Since the treat is frozen, it's going to take much longer for your puppy or dog to finish it. Another tip - if the food is stuck in the toy, I use a strong, plastic chopstick to get it out.

There is something special about medium breeds that most people cannot ignore. After all, when comparing dog sizes, they are usually more physically active than small pooches. They are also more portable than big dogs. In this respect, we have some popular suggestions for you if you are open to adopting one!
Dogs that stay small are adorable, easy to carry and don’t eat much. This means they are easier to take care of, even on a budget! The thing about them is that they don’t always have a good reputation, primarily due to certain misinformed stereotypes. Chances are, you may also be having some of these misgivings.
Crate training is crucial because it ensures that your dog ends up with a good sense of security and comfort when you bring home one of these crates. They have to feel comfortable enough to enter the crate without feeling scared or forced.
Small dogs are adorable, cuddly, and they suit any home or apartment. They make the best companions for kids too! So, if you find yourself trying to decide which dog to adopt, we’ve got a few ideas on which ones should be at the top of your list.
