    Default Finally found something to keep Banks occupied

    Ok -- by now you all know Banks is AMAZINGLY food motivated. Well, her life revolved around making Nitschke miserable and stealing whatever he had (we did not allow, but that did not stop her from trying) and since he past - she is impossible to get engaged in play. Over the last week I have bought four different treat dispensing/interactive toys... all four have worked, but the below is the WINNER... a small hand full of 3 calorie (per treat) treats made of carrots and wheat keeps her busy for about an hour. she gets exercise and mental challenge.

    Call me mean, but I used it to feed her dinner tonight.... hee hee hee

    Now, it still does not get her to play with us, but at least this now gives her some type of interaction.

    It is call the 'Kong Wobbler - food/treat dispenser'

    Oh we have one too and it NEVER gets old. I let Lucy play after dinner and I save about 1/4 cup of her dinner portion and she bats the wobbler around the house. We have a few other "puzzle" games and they are a life saver! Great pictures!

    Dozer used to Love this. Glad you have found something to stimulate her. This is adorable btw. Don't know if you have yet but , you may also wanna try the busy buddy by premier. It was Dozers favorite You can use her kibble in it. I used to feed him his breakfast this way.

    I have the tug-n-treat, but she does not react or engage with it. I tried the 'everlasting treat ball' and had to put my hand done her throat to get the treat disk out... she somehow got the disk out of the ball and tried to swallow it whole. I gave them to my sister and her dogs do well with them

    I don't think I've ever seen all her spots. Love em! My two other boy, Ace & Orion, never liked the kongs so I gave them away. I may have to rethink Kongs on my next purchase.

    @lucysmom, what are puzzlers and wobblers?

    Thanks.. her 'spots' are some what unique and they are all brindle... we call them her freckles.

    Ans, the wobbler is what Banks has, --- it is made by Kong. It is hard plastic that has a small hole in the one side... it twist open and you can put whatever fits through the hole in it. the bottom is filled with , i think sand, which causes it to 'wobble'

    I love her freckles too! And I don't think it's mean at all to put her dinner in it. She gets fed and stimulation at the same time. I think that's great! Also a way to slow down her eating. Most highly food motivated bullies also eat way too fast.
