Hol-ee Ball Treat Puzzle
This game is perfect for those dogs that like to "disembowel" stuffed toys. We've all been there, bought lovely cuddly soft toy for our dogs only for it to be totally destroyed and in pieces within a matter of minuets. What a mess. After cleaning up many a stuffed toy I've come up with an activity that works with the same general principle (tearing out stuffing!), but is re-usable and easy to clean up.
What You’ll Need:
- Rubber Ball with holes
- Old t-shirts, tea towel, fleece any fabric scraps would work
How to play Holl-ee Ball:
Method 1 - single tea towel
Step 1 -Scatter the food on the tea towel
Step 2 - Scrunch it up
Step 3 - Stuff it inside the ball.
Step 4 - Play Time
Method 2 - fabric strips
Step 1 - Cut up the old t-shirts or fabric into small strips and place dog treats inside them.
Step 2 - Place the strips inside the ball
Step 3 0 Give to your dog to figure out how to remove the strips to get the food.
This is not an activity you want to give to a dog that is prone to swallowing pieces of fabric (or other things they shouldn't be eating for that matter!). This is an activity I would never give to a dog unattended. Remember that it's always a good idea to supervise your dog when it's playing with toys (especially when its playing with pieces of fabric).
