and… a few toys…
my favorite is Kong Quest
It’s a bone shape with a sideways spot for filling so the dog can get all of it where the common Kong is near impossible to get stuff out of the bottom..
Busy Buddy is about everyone’s favorite where I train.. some dogs take forever at it
You can control how hard or easy this is by how tightly you screw it together (see pic to understand)
Rubber tire toys (see them at most pet stores) should be hollow inside the rims.. put something in there and freeze.. lot of work to get frozen food out from in there
Do it yourself ideas:
Use empty egg carton as a slow feeder
Take a pressure curtain rod and a 2ltr bottle.. punch hole in bottom of bottle and slide it through curtain rod.. create some wholes large enough for treats to fall from.. so you can stick this between two walls and the dog can twist it around to try and make the food fall out
stackable cups - like the kid ones?
stack them with a bit of kibble in between each one (or other treat)
take a towel… put treats on it, fold, repeat a few times.. fold as tight or lose as you want for how easy/hard dog needs it to be
Scatter feed - dogs are meant to hunt for breakfast.. why stick it all in a bowl? throw some of it on porch or in house or outside in grass (I don’t do the last as often because what if dogs don’t find it all and bugs come about.. but some love it) .. this is great in giving dog something to do and it seems searching/smelling out food creates a chemical response in a dog that helps them be calm
More ideas out there but I think thats a few nice options? I just recently tried the towel and it worked great. I scatter feed all the time.. they love it and I’m just using normal breakfast kibble
