How To Get Your Dog To Entertain Themselves & You

Take a cone shaped Kong toy and insert a dog biscuit into the little round hole. Then, sit back and enjoy hours of watching your dog try to get the biscuit out. Gracie has figured out how to get three out in the last few days. I'm still not sure how she does it. Part of her technique includes laying on her back (See photo) like a bear cub and using gravity to her advantage. Smart dog. (Click on photo to enlarge)

I think I know how they do it. I bought a heavy duty Kong, for my friend Debbie's chocolate lab. When I try to squeeze the Kong with my hands, there is no give. But when I place my finger in the Kong and hold it while the dog chews on it, it flexes like crazy! The psi that a dog's bite has is immense. So my theory is the dog crushes the biscuits by chewing on the Kong until the pieces get small enough to fall out.

She can now get them out in about 10-15 minutes - almost takes the fun out of it.
