Check out this great Kong recipe!
There are many benefits for giving your dog a food toy including:
1) the act of searching out the food stimulates their brain
2) mental stimulation is tiring
3) licking is a calming behaviour for dogs
4) food toys can keep your dog happy and calm in the presence of something potentially scary, like the vacuum!
You can create your own recipe by layering any of your dog's favourite foods inside the Kong. It is great to include peanut butter or wet dog food as well so that it takes longer for your dog to get through.
