We talked about play time earlier this week, and I thoroughly enjoyed your feedback on Facebook. Keep it coming! I want to make one final mention on the subject that I think is possibly the most important of all: interactive toys. This is especially important for intelligent dogs with a great deal of energy – a description most of our dogs likely fit. The first interactive toy to hit the streets is the Kong, or as I like to call it, “King Kong.” The granddaddy. The leader in this category. I have included a favorite Kong recipe below for you to try out and share. Let me know what you think!
Another interactive toy I like is one that dispenses food. We tried a few with Dasher and used them as the way we fed him every night. He had to work for his food, which proved to be great fun. That is, until he somehow figured out how to unscrew the tops and chew on them until the toys met their demise. If you try these, make sure you supervise the situation so you can lengthen the life of the toys.
Have you tried interactive toys? Let’s hear some stories!
