Through the training process, we've befriended a powerful ally - the Kong. When we first purchased it, Eddie didn't show too much interest. We'd throw it and he would watch with his cute head tilt, as if to say - " Ok, now what do you want me to do?". Of course, once we filled it up with treats, his interest level jumped. Now when we throw the Kong, he will chase after it, grab it, shake it, chew it and run around with his prize. We put his kibble in the Kong with a pinch of peanut butter, freeze it and serve it to the dog with the waggly tail. It's perfect for an active dog and an active chewer like Eddie!
