How to teach an old dog new tricks and the rest

Home made dog stuff

on November 28, 2013

So I just made home made kongs – you know those things you put treats in and the dogs keep themselves busy by trying to figure out how to get the treats out??

So I grabbed two water bottles, removed the labels and ring… cut holes into the bottle, then put treats in and replaced the lid.. and WALA home made kongs…

So I give one to each and Busta is so NOT interested – i dont understand. Milli has devoured all the treats out of one and now shes onto the other – mmmm maybe i made it too easy? 

Shes panting so im guessing its stimulating her some how, shes already had a run around the back yard with the hose so now shes a wet smelly dog lol my poor old Busta just doesnt seem to be interested in ANYTHING except his early xmas present stuffed squeaky toy – which he has almost killed… 

How do I get this dog interested in anything?

Suggestions please

  1. Cool. Your description of making your dogs DIY kongs.

    So your Busta likes squeaky toys? Have you played tug, or hide and seek with a favorite squeaky?

    What about scent trails of interesting stuff? I like to set up a few items in the house or yard that my dog loves. Now Sydney is a food nut, so pieces of cheese, chicken, carrot and snap peas ring his bell.

    Your dog could be much more interested (as Sydney is) in what we consider rotten bad smells. For those kinds of hunts we keep his harness on a leash and let him take us to them, but not eat or roll in them.

    Good for you, wanting to find out what motivates your dog. That makes Busta, one lucky dog!
