If your Dog is energetic and always on the go or destructive in the home these toys are great. They mentally stimulate your Dog. Slow feeders have come along way from being a moulded maze bowl. Diesel has one just for play. He also has a puzzle game out friend kindly brought him. A snuffle mat handmade by our friends (and there are more on sale if wanted). And the cup is for demonstration purposes. I fill plastic cups with treats and then top with Dog gravy and water and then freeze it. Once it's frozen I just run it under the cold tap and give it to Diesel. It keeps him entertained for ages. And as the plastic is removed he doesn't need to be supervised. There is alot of controversy around snuffle mats and interactive toys. However if your Dog is destructive there is nothing stopping you giving these items to your Dog half an hour before you leave to stimulate them and help them to be tired for when you do go. Obviously I cannot speak for every Dog but whenever Diesel does either scentwork or plays with the toys in the photo he will have a deep sleep for at the very least an hour depending on how active I am as he tends to follow me as many of you know. But this has also helped him to relax and continue to sleep without having to follow me. So personally these items really work for us. Why not give them a try yourself. All available on Amazon. Snuffle mats also or Muttsnmischief have them available to purchase.
For the frozen cup. All you need is...
Disposable plastic cup
Dog Gravy or water or Dog ice cream/ yoghurt
Dog treats (be it dry or raw foods)
I always put a chew in (Natures menu do some amazing freezable chews)
Or another option is frozen chicken wings, duck necks or the other Natures Menu frozen range of Dog chews which as well as being mentally stimulating helps keep your Dog cool in the Summer as well as helping your Dog to relax away from the heat ☀️🐶☀️
