Canine Enrichment

ideas and equipment to help keep your dog entertained while on restricted exercise and to mentally stimulate and tire rather than physically tire.

TRIXIE Memory trainer – slow feeding – dog learns to dispense dry food/treats itself – a good way to feed dinner so it takes longer   https://www.amazon.co.uk/Trixie-Activity-Trainer-Strategy-Diameter/dp/B01075JA9Y/ref=cm_cr_arp_d_product_top?ie=UTF8

facebook pages with lots of ideas of mental games https://www.facebook.com/groups/canineenrichment/

Snuffle mats – sold many places online – local supplier http://www.activepawsfitness.co.uk/

other suggestions include the KONG range of toys that you can stuff (and freeze if like) food into such as KONG wobbler and LONG stuff a ball.

Other games for dogs to work the brain are made by Nina Ottosson  or by Trixie or by Outward Hound (all available on Amazon and other places)
