KONG Wobbler Treat Dispensing Dog Toy, Large
Wobblers wobble but they don’t fall down
The Wobbler is a KONG-shaped toy and feeder that sits up until your dog pushes it down with their paws or noses. The best part- it then dispenses treats as it wobbles spins and rolls. The unpredictable movement keeps the toy challenging even for the seasoned pooch. Use the Wobbler as an alternative to a dog bowl and help extend meal time and exercise your dog.
The Wobbler is a fabulous toy for playtime providing both mental challenge and physical activity for your dog. The whole family will enjoy watching the Wobbler in action.
Introducing the Wobbler to Your Dog
To start treat dispensing or mealtime feeding unscrew the Wobbler and fill with food or treats. In the beginning make sure your dog observes you filling the Wobbler with food. Screw top on tightly!
Demonstrate the use of the toy to your dog- make it a big event. Let them sniff the Wobbler opening. Push it wobble it and roll it-until some of the food or treats are released. Get excited about the toy- your dog will too! Most dogs will quickly learn to use their nose or paws to move the Wobbler and release the treats. Praise your dog each time a treat is released. Your praise and the treat reward will encourage continued involvement.
It also helps to introduce the Wobbler when your dog is hungry and thus more motivated to work for the treats. Often one demonstration is all that’s needed in order for your dog to catch on. Repeat the process several times if necessary. It’s recommended that you start with a number of high-value small treats for maximum canine motivation and easy dispensing. This method ensures a rapid training period. As your dog gets more comfortable using the Wobbler you can increase the challenge by reducing the number of treats inside using larger treats and/or a combination of large and small treats. However always make sure the treats are not too big to fit through the dispensing hole.
