Dogs. Aren’t they just the best?!
There isn’t a time in my life that I don’t ever remember a dog being a part of it. My husband and I have also, always owned dogs throughout our marriage!
Just a little back story on our sweet rat terrier, Pepper. She is blind…caused from glaucoma. She started losing her sight awhile back and ended up having to have one eye removed. Her other eye is deteriorating and so that one will need to be removed as well.
That makes us SO sad, but the thing is…..Pepper is still pretty young, active, and happy! However, since losing her sight she is a lot more skittish and unsure of herself. She loves loves loves herself some treats, though!!! So, when I saw the new Milk-Bone® ActiveTM Toys I was like……
She will love this! These are made of high-quality, durable, non-toxic material made specifically to work with Milk-Bone biscuits!
I mean, what dog doesn’t love treats?! So. Treats inside this ball that bounces and rolls to drive her playful instincts – it keeps her moving and active! AND it rewards her with yummy treats! Win win win!!!
I found the Milk-Bone Active Toy at Meijer in the dog toy aisle! There are 4 different Active Toys to choose from! They come in 2 different styles and 2 different sizes. Each one correlate with different Milk-Bone biscuit sizes.
- Medium Dispensing Ball (recommended for dogs 25 – 49 lbs) – Medium biscuits
- Medium Treat Tumbler (recommended for dogs 25 – 49 lbs) – Minis biscuits
- Small Dispensing Ball (recommended for dogs up to 24 lbs) – Small biscuits
- Small Treat Tumbler (recommended for dogs up to 24 lbs) – Minis biscuits
We got the medium dispensing ball with medium biscuits! The toy came with a small trial sized package of biscuits and they just slid easily right into the holes of the ball. They don’t slide out easily which is great – because it really makes your dog work for that treat!!! We also grabbed a box of the Milk-Bone Peanut Butter flavor variety packs! She loves peanut butter, just like her momma. (me!)
Pepper finally got a nibble of one and kept going back for more! She rolled that ball all over the yard! That was so fun to watch and it kept her moving!! With her vision loss, she’s using her other senses a lot more. We knew that would happen, but it’s been cool to see how she compensates in her normal everyday routine. I love that the Active Toys are a fun way to keep her mentally stimulated as well. I know she can tend to get bored, so this keeps her entertained.
When you head to Meijer to grab your dogs their own Milk-Bone Active Toys, make sure to use this SA-WEEET mPerks offer for $2 off the Small toys and $3 off the Medium toys, valid until 3/17/18!! That’s a huge savings!!! Also….be on the look out because several of the toys I saw, had a peel off coupon for $1 off a box of Milk-Bone biscuits! Yeah!!!
