Dog enrichment toys help with mental stimulation. These can be interactive, treat-dispensing, puzzles, or engaging in other ways. Dog enrichment toys are a great addition to your dog’s daily routine, especially during crates or downtimes. These are our favorites.
Kongs for Food Stuffing (small to large)
Kong is one of the largest dog toy manufacturers and most of their products are of high quality. These are toys you can stuff with food. The dog will try to get the food stuffing out of the toy. This can be very long lasting. Especially when the Kongs with their stuffing sit in the freezer for a while. Mix your dogs favorite treat, food or special snack. Mash it up, stuff your Kong and freeze it. Your dog will have fun for a while.
