Four-legged friends alone at home? A few simple ideas will help your dog keep himself busy when he's out of the house and getting too bored.
Make patience toys yourself: the snack roll
Do you know snack balls for dogs? You can easily make a very similar and even more exciting toy yourself. You need a stable cardboard roll (for example a poster roll) and a few dog treats or some dry food. Drill a few large holes in the roll and seal the dog toy on both sides after filling it with the treats. If the roll cannot be closed with a lid, you can help yourself by closing the toy on the sides with crumpled wrapping paper.
Now the fun can begin: Put your dog on the snack roll, he will quickly understand that he can work out the snacks by rolling back and forth. Tip: If you don't have a cardboard roll, a plastic can or a large, resealable yogurt mug will do the trick.
