This week, Tamsin at Dedicated to Dogs shows us how to create an enrichment activity for our dogs using an egg box… We’ve tried it with Bob and it was a smash hit!
You know when you’re stood in a shop holding onto a treat but you just can’t quite work out what on earth to do with it, or if your dog will actually like it? This Pure Chicken Pate can be quite a headscratcher at first; its so unusual in shape and texture it’s really easy to look at it and be a bit thrown!
Dog agility training has many benefits that aren’t outwardly apparent; we cover why you should consider giving it a go, along with tips on getting started!
As a dog trainer, I’m often getting calls to help solve problems around destructive chewing. Chewing is a natural activity for dogs; its fun, it acts as a stress reliever and it busts some serious boredom!
Unfortunately, if we don’t supply enough fun things to chew on our dogs can very easily go ‘self employed’ and start looking for their own amusement!
Kongs. They’re found in almost every pet shop, these weird rubbery things with holes in the middle. If we’re being honest they sort of look like a poo shape. Unlike most toys these guys take a bit of working out… what on earth are they meant to do?! I absolutely adore Kongs for so many …
There are so many enrichment toys out there it can give you a headache trying to figure out how they work and if your dog will enjoy them. This blog post looks at one of Bob’s favourite toys, the Trixie Activity Snack Ball, and explains what it is, how it works, how to fill it and the all important how to clean it.
Bob’s a Labrador so by very nature he’ll pretty much eat anything I give to him. Except parsnips. They’re gross, apparently. As a result I can mess around with flavours and textures and pretty much get it right every time, but this recipe? Well, by jove his eyes light up like the local town hall at Christmas and he struggles to focus when this fishy treat comes out!
