Fun Feeder Friday for Fido
Do you have any pop or water bottles, juice containers or milk jugs ready for the recycle bin? I bet you do! Before tossing them in the trash or bin, try using them to enrich your pup’s mealtime.
This is one of Dolly’s favorite mealtime enrichment “toys”, and it’s so easy for me to prepare. It’s a simple, yet enjoyable, game for her to roll and toss around the bottle to dispense the food. Sometimes, I make it more challenging by stuffing one or two paper towel balls inside so she has to work harder for the food to fall out.
We had a guest dog staying with Smartypaws for a few weeks. This girl loved to snatch and run with things she wasn’t supposed to have. You should’ve seen her face when I handed her a water bottle full of food! The twinkle in her eyes and surprise on her face surpassed the most tickled child on Christmas morning. She had an absolute blast! And that’s what enrichment is all about.
