Enrichment ideas

Dogs are natural hunters and scavengers – they’re problem-solvers! When we bring dogs into our homes and feed them out of bowls, we’re asking them to do something that goes against what they are programmed to do…they need an enriched environment!Food is a valuable resource – sure, it sustains life, but it can also enrich environments, create positive associations, reinforce desired behaviours, and be the source of a lot of fun. Every kibble in a bowl is the tragic loss of an opportunity for one of these things above.Get rid of that food bowl and start enriching your dog’s environment! Give them something to DO. A mentally stimulated dog is a good dog. Here is a list of commonly found food dispensing toys that will keep your pet busy for much longer, utilise their brains and eliminate boredom-based issues, reduce anxiety and nuisance behaviours such as excessive barking and chewing of inappropriate items (non-anxiety related).
