Treat Ball Game

November 14, 2018

tennismuffintin-850x571We often recommend keeping your dog mentally stimulated during the day if you are away from home. It keeps the dog from engaging in boredom behaviors like chewing, digging, and excessive barking. Here’s an innovative idea to make him or her think about where the next meal is coming from.

Put a few pieces of kibble or treats in some, but not all, of the sections of a muffin tin, then cover every section with a tennis ball. The dog must remove the balls to find the food. S/he can then play with the balls after eating.

Also good for dogs who eat too fast.

Until next time,
Good day, and good dog!

I am currently using the BARF (bones and raw food) diet, only because Penny is allergic to beef, so I can control ingredients better this way.

What do you feed your dog?

Petco logoNo, this post isn’t about smelly cats. (For the Friends fans reading along.)

As a new convert to homemade dog food, I was interested in this new venture by Petco.

As part of their effort to continue to offer pet parents the very best in pet solutions, Petco has partnered with Los Alamitos, CA based JustFoodForDogs to offer fresh, small-batch, human-grade food for dogs in strategic locations across the country.
