Toys and Fun Stuff
The best toys are designed to engage the dog or cat’s brain.
Puzzle-type toys that the pet has to figure out to get to the treat inside are ideal. The Kong toys are most well known but there are many others that may suit your dog’s needs better. Another great toymaker is Busy Buddy.
The Maze Food Bowl
Made for dogs but cats can play too. They can use their paws to chase the food out of the maze. Similar games have been made at home using different-sized pill bottles glued down to a wood surface.
The food gets sprinkled between the tubes so the cat has to use their paws to dig the food out. Very entertaining, for everyone!
A cat feeding system that they think is a toy. You control how much food they eat and they have to work to get it out. This entertains and stimulates the hunting instinct while taking care of the tummy too.
