3/28/2011 The Kong Wobbler – The Perfect Solution for a Restless Pooch!

You don’t have to go to a dog training school to find a clever way to satisfy your dog’s appetite for fun! One of the favorite dog toy companies, Kong, has come out with an excellent and extremely useful new product called the Kong Wobbler. The Kong Wobbler is a toy and dog training tool that can be used to entertain an energetic dog, or simply alleviate the stress of dealing with a fast eater. It is a food / treat dispenser that is bottom-heavy, so your pooch will be able to access the food by tipping it over repeatedly.

Oftentimes, our canine friends become so enthusiastic about their breakfast, lunch, or dinner, that they inhale their food rather than chewing it. Since our pals do not have the ability to reason like we do, they do not realize that eating this way could be harmful or potentially dangerous to them. The Kong Wobbler eliminates this problem, as your pooch will not be able to consume all of the food at once, thus reducing any chance of him choking.

The Wobbler also aids you with occupying a fussy, excitable dog by providing him with a puzzle that is both time consuming, and rewarding to finish. Playing with your pooch is always the best recommended way to relieve excess energy, but not everyone has enough free time to spare each and every day for playtime, so this Kong product allows you to keep your dog busy without making him feel neglected.

This new toy is also great for entertaining your dog while you are gone. You can leave the toy for him while you are at the store or even at work. This will give him something to distract his attention while you are away. Please remember if your dog is an aggressive chewer this toy is best suited while he is being supervised. Please make sure to check with your dog trainer before leaving any toys unsupervised with your pooch.

Here’s how it works: simply unscrew the top of the Wobbler and fill it with a serving of dog food or treats (keep in mind that the Wobbler will not work well if you pack it full of kibble, so leave a little extra space for it to roll around inside) close it up, and set it down in front of your pooch. Be sure to give your dog adequate time to figure out his new toy. Some dogs understand it instantly, but not all of them do, so it is important to let him discover how to use it on his own. After all, solving the puzzle is part of the fun!

The Kong Wobbler can be purchased in almost any pet store, for more information on where to get a Wobbler for your pup consult your dog trainer.
