Interactive Tips for Pets During Busy Schedule
As summer comes to an end (be gone heat!), many households are preparing for back to school. Unfortunately for your dogs and cats, the house becomes a little quiet and lonely. Fight the bark-to-school blues with our interactive tips to keep them entertained while you’re shopping for supplies, meeting new teachers, starting after-school activities, etc.
Interactive ToysInteractive toys are like school, for pets. These toys offer hours of long-lasting, brain-stimulating entertainment for dogs of any size. Depending on the toy, you can stuff in treats, frozen bone broth, or good ol’ fashion peanut butter (xylitol-free, of course) to keep your dog’s attention and incentivize him to keep playing. Interactive toys are meowzing for cats, too. These toys are engaging and satisfy kitty’s natural drive to hunt or search out their food. Team Tomlinson’s recommends:
- Planet Dog Orbee Tuff Snoop (or Lil’ Snoop): The multiple award-winning Orbee-Tuff® Snoop challenges the brain in fun and stimulating ways. Snoop is translucent and squishy with a deep crevice that conceals the treasure. Filled with treats, dogs will pounce, nudge, nose, and nibble to release the hidden reward. And when it gets grimy, just pop it in the dishwasher.
- Coastal Pet Turbo MegaScratcher Cat Toy: The Mega Turbo Cat Toy supports a huge 14" scratch pad (big enough for scratching and sleeping) and a smooth motion track ball. For variety you can turn the toy over for a game of peek a boo with the jingle ball. Catnip included. Non-Skid pads prevent toy from sliding around.
