|Has anyone used this? You place kibble in the hard plastic cube and the dog rolls it around the floor to get pieces to fall out.
I have had intermittent but very scary experiences with Joey chewing and swallowing cloth, so I'm looking at things to do to stop this. I don't know if it's behavioral or if something else(for example, a toothache) is causing it, but I'm kind of at wit's end. He also licks his paws a lot. I know I should walk him more to keep him entertained, but I'm finding that it's hard for me to find the time and energy to do so. (I'm almost 62, and while I'm retired, I have a long "To Do" list and time is a bit precious to me.)
Joey is not a young dog - he's about 8. Generally, the chewing will be on the quilt that I placed on his pet bed, but he has also attacked a couch, too. He seems to love cloth - won't chew on a Kong. I'm a little afraid to give him bones, and giving him bully sticks and things like that gets expensive, as they're done in minutes.
The vet has not been too helpful with this problem, so I keep limping along.....
comments/suggestions welcome, particularly on the "Buster Food Cube." At least PetMeds will let me return it if it's useless - but since Joey is very food motivated, I might give it a try.
