The K9 Connectables are a regular part of the stuffable enrichment rotation here at Your Whole Dog, and they also can work well with dried food and treats inside.
Everyone knows dogs need lots of walks and outside time in nature but it can be hard to get all the mental enrichment a dog requires... this is where K9 Connectables are a great addition to an active dogs lifestyle!
K9 Connectables are dog toys designed to engage, stimulate and entertain your canine friend for longer than your average dog toys! They utilize your dog’s natural instincts to hunt and work for food, challenging them to unlock the treats inside.
Made from durable non-toxic plastic, K9 Connectables can be stuffed with treats and connected together, the dog can smell the food but cannot get at the treats, they have to work to break the connection and get their rewards!
Exercise alone is never enough for a dog – they need stimulation and to be mentally engaged, K9 Connectables requires dogs to use their brain, satisfies their instincts to break things apart and burns energy. Increase the challenge by connecting more toys or freezing!
These interactive toys can prevent unwanted behaviours forming, they teach dog-appropriate chew items and teach dogs how to settle, how to handle controlled frustration and how to problem-solve.
The Puzzle Pack comes in three sizes: mini, medium and large.
As a rough guide, mini toys are aimed at dogs under 10KG, medium toys are aimed at dogs 8KG – 35KG and the large toys aimed at dogs 25-45KG. If your dog is very high energy, enthusiastic and food motivated it is probably best to get a size up.
