Tuesday Training Tip: Why dogs love KONGs and you should, too! (I could write a book on this subject but I’ll try to keep this short & sweet.) Dogs get both physical and psychological satisfaction from 🦴chewing. It is a natural, exploratory 🖼 behavior which helps dogs learn about and navigate their environment - puppies start chewing before they even open their eyes! Say what?! 👩🏻💻 One of the many reasons that I love “stuffing” Kongs is that they activate 🤩 areas of the dog’s brain that promote calm and relaxation. ☮️ Pretty cool, eh?
This morning, I’m getting ready to mix some kibble + wet food for a meal. PLUS, I’m stuffing another one for an afternoon snack with 🥜 peanut butter. Lucky dogs! Nom nom! 👅 *Remember the extra ingredients will add extra calories to your dog’s daily diet. So adjust his other mealtime and treat rations accordingly. 👊🏼
