Most dogs love them.They come highly recommended by all veterinarians .When dogs have a puzzle to eat and enjoy, it helps to keep their mind and body active, slows down the rate of food consumption,thus helping with digestion.Food puzzles also provide  possibly the best alternative  to destructive behavior ,that is often seen in dogs that are bored, have way too much energy or that suffer from separation anxiety.

The most simple food puzzle is a do-it-yourself food puzzle made by who else, but the Kong.Incredibly chewy, study and non-destructible, these food puzzle can be stuffed with treats and will most definitely keep your furry best friend mentally stimulated and busy.

    Litchi loves her Kong (although I don’t put food in it – it’s purely for chewing on. She things it’s her ball). She also loves the treat balls – those work fantastically for her.

    Kongs have definitely been great for Eko. If the material isn’t tough rubber then his “solution” is simply to chew through it!

    Great idea… I am curious however of using these on large breeds. I’ve seen a Bull Mastiff, who ripped a Kong to shreds when he couldn’t get the treat 🙂
