Bin the Bowl

Part 1 of the #Bin The Bowl Series

Hey guys, it’s me, Karl the Doberman, King of Canine Enrichment. In this first part of our #binthebowl campaign, I’ll be chatting about Food Stuffies. Food Stuffies are, what I class, as any rubber chew toy that can be stuffed with food and have to be chewed or licked to get the good stuff out. Most can even be frozen to make them more difficult.

My Mom gives these to me for a number of reasons. She says that they:

  • Keep me busy and out of her hair for a few minutes peace

  • Help me adjust to new situations and places by giving my brain something positive, productive and reinforcing to do

  • Reduce the likelihood of me chewing on things I’m not supposed to

  • Help me not to worry when she leaves the house to go to the shop or other boring human things

  • Encourage me to relax and lie down to lick and chew the toy, rather than chasing things around the place

There are lots and lots of Food Stuffies out there on the market, and I’ve tried and tested pretty much all of them over the years. I’ve decided to make things a little easier for you to choose by putting together a list of my absolute favourites.

Planet Dog Orbee Tuff Produce Range

Planet Dog Orbee Tuff Raspberry

So, these guys come in a variety of shapes and sizes, that all look like fruit and vegetables. The little raspberry suits tiny little pooches, while the eggplant suits the much heftier beasts, like myself. They are recyclable, which I’m told is pretty important these days. They rinse clean and my Mom also puts them in the dishwasher. They bounce around, which is great fun and they also have a minty smell which encourages me to lick and chew!

Planet Dog Orbee Tuff Carrot

Prices range from €9.90 – €19.90

depending on the size of your doggo, and what fruit or veg tickles their fancy

Ruffwear Gnawt-A-Cone

Gnawt a Cone

These kinda look like a weird pine cone and they come in blue, yellow or red. It’s funny shape means that it bounces funny when I throw it around, and the rubbery edges help massage my gums and clean my teeth as I chew. These are pretty tough, and I know that because even my brother, Nero, hasn’t ruined his (and he loves destroying things).

Prices are €11.99

and suit small to large dogs (the teeny tinies and the super giants might not be so suited to them)

Planet Dog Orbee Tuff Diamond Plate Double Tuff

Planet Dog Orbee Tuff Diamond Plate Double Tuff

This one’s a mouthful in more than one way. Just like the produce range, this has a super tasty, minty smell. It comes in three different sizes, tiny to massive, and three different colours, purple, silver and orange. This one is bouncy too and has really stood the test of time.

Prices range from €5.99 – €19.99

Planet Dog Guru ball

This one’s a little different to the others I wrote about. The Guru ball is pretty cool, because it has five separate openings for treats which means I can get my Mom to put five different food things in just one toy. In the centre opening she’ll usually put my favourite chew, while in the other four, there can be kibble, treats, vegetables or anything else delicious you can think of! These are designed so that the treats only pop out when enough pressure is applied with my gnashers. Check out the cool video aboveto see just a few ideas for how to use the Guru ball. These are a pretty hefty sized toy so are suitable for medium dogs and upwards and available in both blue and purple.

Price €19.99
