Does Fido Need Interactive Dog Toys?
Studies have shown that dogs are actually pretty intelligent beings with the intelligence level similar to a two and a half year old human child. We all know what happens when a child of that age is left to his or her own devices, right? With no guidance, that child begins to find ways to entertain himself that are usually not safe or acceptable. A dog is the same way - he will find things to do (usually destructive behaviors) to ward off boredom and loneliness. Interactive dog toys can be used in a variety of ways to reduce boredom and help your pet get through separation anxiety when you're gone. These toys often include some sort of "game" the dog must play in order to reveal a reward (treat) at the end. Dogs may spend several minutes to several hours trying to manipulate the toy to get the treats out, which keeps them occupied, entertained and out of trouble. We especially like The iFetch Dog Ball Machine because it really makes a dog think, work, and get great exercise. The iFetch Dog Ball Machine comes in three different styles. Check them out with the link above! Keep Doggie Safe carries a wide selection of interactive dog toys because we believe a busy dog is a happy dog - and a happy dog makes for a very happy owner. Be sure to check out our selection, especially if your dog is left alone for extended periods of time while you're at work. An interactive dog toy can help him while away the hours until your return.
