Dogs really do just love their peanut butter! Make sure that you stick to an organic natural variety that is free from nasty chemicals and sweet additives such as xylito.
Natural greek yogurt is perfect for pups who want a softer snack or to act as a base layer for more chunky treats.
Frozen fruit is an ideal option for summertime enrichment eating. Pop berries, banana and watermelon in the freezer and chop up into small chunks for a refreshing dose of chilled deliciousness.
Cut up carrots, celery and capsicum make great options for adding a healthy dose of crunch to your dog’s enrichment toy. Be sure to cut these up nice and small to make sure that eating veggies is manageable and enjoyable for your dog.
Kibble and treats
This might be an obvious one, but it is obvious for a reason! Adding kibble and treats to yogurt and peanut butter adds an extra layer of crunch, perfect for really stimulating your dog’s taste buds and bringing some unexpected excitement to enrichment play time.
