We love these treat dispensing balls for some entertainment. You can use treats or feed a meal with them. They provide mental as well as physical stimulation, teaching your puppy problem solving skills, how to use their nose and can even entice picky dogs to eat. These are great, in addition to other exercise, during cold weather, especially for small dogs and puppies. This game should be supervised, especially if you have a heavy chewer as these balls are not indestructible. Great for times when you are doing things like preparing meals, where you can be there, but don’t have to be directly on top of the dog.
