When Blake our Patterdale terrier was displaying severe signs of separation anxiety, his trainer suggested to get him a treat dispensing ball for dogs, which we ordered for him on Amazon. 

NB – We tried him with it supervised first of course, and then built up the amount of time he was left alone with AND had a dog cam in the kitchen to make sure he was safe (there is always a risk leaving any dog unsupervised with a toy so be aware of this).

What is the Treat Dispensing Ball for Dogs?

It’s kind of an egg shaped ball and you can screw the top off to pop treats inside and then seal it. The treats slowly dispense from one whole when your dog bops or pushes it. Some dogs nudge it with their nose or bop it with their paw. It’s surprising, but they figure it out quickly!

Benefits of using a Food Dispensing Ball for your Dog

A treat dispensing ball is great for terriers because they were originally working breeds and this encourages them to work for their food, diverting some of that energy and giving them mental stimulation at the same time. So while some people using it as a distraction during stressful times such as when there are visitors, fireworks or being left alone, many dog owners use it as a regular way to feed their terriers.
