Toys and Games to Keep your Dog Mentally Stimulated
Interactive dog toys can provide mental stimulation, physical exercise, and entertainment for your furry friend. You can find most of these toys and more at your local Hollywood Feed store. We love the folks at the New Albany and Westerville locations.
Here are five interactive dog toys you might consider:
Kong Classic Dog Toy: This versatile toy that can be stuffed with treats or peanut butter, keeping your dog engaged as they try to extract the goodies. It's durable and can withstand a lot of chewing.
Outward Hound Hide-A-Squirrel Puzzle Toy: This is a plush puzzle toy where the goal is for your dog to find and remove squeaky stuffed squirrels from the tree trunk. It engages your dog's natural hunting instincts and provides mental stimulation.
Nina Ottosson Dog Brick Puzzle Toy: This is a puzzle toy that requires your dog to slide, flip, and lift compartments to find treats hidden inside. It's a great way to challenge your dog's problem-solving skills.
iFetch Interactive Ball Launcher: If your dog loves to play fetch, this toy can keep them entertained for hours. It automatically launches balls for your dog to chase and retrieve, providing both physical activity and mental engagement.
Tug-A-Jug Dispensing Toy: This toy dispenses treats as your dog interacts with it. Dogs need to figure out how to manipulate the toy to get the treats to come out, which keeps them mentally and physically active.
Remember, the best interactive toy for your dog depends on their size, breed, personality, and preferences. Always supervise your dog while they're playing with interactive toys to ensure they're using them safely.
