As I write this, I just finished a bowl of Mint Chip ice cream and I am considering a second. Or maybe I should just eat the whole carton? The fact that I am even stopping to think about it shows some impulse control. Though if I fail to resist the temptation to grab that whole carton and finish it right now, that would definitely show a lack of impulse control. We all experience impulse control (or a lack there of) on a daily basis, and so do our dogs!
‘Tis the season … to justify spending all your money on your pups! If you’re anything like me, you’ve already dressed them in ugly Christmas sweaters, baked them doggy-safe holiday biscuits, and danced with them to “Let it Snow.” Are you wondering what you can get them to make their holiday season even more magical? You’re in luck! We’ve done the work for you and put together this awesome holiday gift guide for dogs and dog lovers alike, guaranteed to make your darling jump for joy!
One recommendation I make to most of my clients is to find a way to incorporate puzzle toys into their dogs daily life. Ideally, every dog owner should have a few different types of puzzle toys, and for their dogs to only be fed via these delightful little enrichment devices. Why? It's like free training! All you have to do it fill it up, give it to your dog, and like magic your dog gets mental enrichment and physical stimulation without you having to do anything but watch and be entertained. As a trainer, I am very thankful so many companies have developed so many types of puzzle toys.
