Love this quote from the article:"Dogs that are unemployed, become self-employed...With all that free time on his paws, your dog may also engage in other behaviours that become a problem for you such as barking, digging, escaping, jumping up, being obnoxious."

That's a pretty interesting article, Dave. I really didn't realize all this before. I just plop a bowl down when it's time to feed. I'm going to get a small kong and start freezing the food in it like mentioned in another post. I just didn't think it was fair for Willow to have to go to so much effort just to eat! I thought putting food in a kong was just for treats or special occasions!

Those are wonderful videos. Thanks.

One technique that I use that wasn't shown in the video is to put the dry kibble in the kong, top with pumpkin or yogurt and then turn the kong upside down quickly onto a plate or container. Then I pour water or no-sodium chicken stock through the small hole at the other end of the kong which is now facing up. Then into the freezer. I find the kongs are very stable and don't leak any liquid with this method.

great stuff. The key is to make it easy at first and then more labour intensive . with more interesting food . Limitless in possibilities.

Nowhere, however, have I found anyone address a dog like my older monster, who "solves" the Kong problem by just chewing the end off. Kongs get expensive when you have to view them as one-use disposable items! ...And WHOES dog is the ?

I believe that there is a 30 day satisfaction guarantee on all KONG rubber chew toys. Assuming of course that the dog does its aggressive chewing within that time frame.
