where to find those nifty food hiding toys?

I think that's a great 'exercise' tool. But I've never seen them in stores here in the states. Anyone know?

I just love those toys that the dog has to turn and play with to get food out.

I love Victoria's suggestion to give them ice cubes as a way of limiting water intake. My understanding was to take away the water and give them ice cubes instead :? It works GREAT for us. At about 8 at night we switch over to ice cubes as many as she wants to munch. We pee her for the last time aro...

I make my big puppy :shock: (she's huge for 16 weeks) sit before she gets a treat. This is assuming that your problem like mine may be more when she is excited. For example I have a bigger problem with the back yard. Come with a treat in my hand turns into attack and eat the mommy for the treat. So ...

Is what you all call the halti the same as the gentle leader

Sorry. I'm not sure if it's because I'm in the U.S.A. Is this a different item or is it just a different name?

Thanks :D :D
