Our dogs love dog treat toys. Treat dispensing dog toys are a great way to keep your pet engaged, entertained, and full of energy. Just fill the toy with goodies and watch your dog play.

Researchers are also recommending treat toys as a way to slow down pets that “wolf down” their food too fast. One of our favorite dog treat toys, the Canine Genius Leo Dog Toy recently received kudos from Dr. Marty Becker, the veterinary contributor to Good Morning America. In an article on the Spokesman Review, Dr. Becker writes:

“My wife Teresa gave a Canine Genius to her friend, Betsy Schmeckpeper, who owns our dog’s half brother, Griffie, a 11/2-year-old, papillon/toy poodle cross. Schmeckpeper says that since she started using the product, Griffie refuses to eat out of a bowl, preferring to take the Canine Genius and shake it, spin it and flip it end over end. Rather than wolfing down his meal, he grazes throughout the day.”

If you are looking for a new treat toy to add to your dog’s toybox, we highly recommend the Canine Genius Leo toy. Your dog will love it, and you will have a blast watching them play with their food!
