Treat dispensing dog toys cause huge debates in our home…
My husband thinks they’re cruel and he wears a scowl on his face whenever I fill them with treats for the Boys…
I tell him all the time –
Treat dispensing dog toys allow dogs to work for a little sumpin’ special and gain healthy mental and physical stimulation.
But the man of the house is not feeling it!
DO I LIKE THEM? –
If I’m going to be honest – not the ones I used to own.
They were small, round and they rolled all over the place.
For that reason – playing time was limited because I was always crawling on my hands and knees retrieving the thing from under furniture.
One day at the pet store – Jaxson fell in love with a Buster Food Cube Dog Toy – he wouldn’t let it go…
Because he looked so freaking cute cuddling it, like any respectable, irrational, obsessed pet parent – I walked out of there with two!…
- It’s durable, and the large cubed shape prevents it from rolling under stuff!
- The shape makes it difficult to turn over therefore more challenging. #busydoodle
- It doesn’t roll – but it slides. #likeahockeypuck…
This of course reinforced Doodle Dad’s dislike. #morewierdfacialexpressions
Watch Harley playing with his cube…
Until it slid under the table…
It comes with 10 chambers that I can fill with treats.
Using their paws or noses – they learned quickly how to find the hidden treats…
Three tiers of of treats makes plenty of hidden places for both Harley and Jaxson to enjoy together…
They’ve even worked out their own system.
Jaxson does all the work while Harley lays and waits on the other side to reap the benefits.
Together (especially on rainy days) they’re happy Doodles entertaining themselves.
I also like that I can adjust the difficulty knob to make them work a little harder. #quiltypleasures
And here’s the best part –
IT DOESN’T SLIDE!
The last hurdle would be Doodle Dad himself. He hasn’t seen them play with the Star Spinner yet. I’m interested in his facial expression when he does. #inquiringminds
So how do you feel about treat dispensing dog toys?
