Penny loves her new bowl!
I was asked recently to review the PetWeighter dog dish, advertised not to slip and slide across the floor while your dog eats. I was skeptical, but have to say I was pleasantly surprised.

Treat Ball Game

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!
