If someone told me I had to choose ONE toy that my dog could play with for the rest of her life, I would choose a stuffable treat toy.

Although they’ve been around for many years, stuffable treat toys are all the rage right now. So, what’s the big deal? Ever heard of canine enrichment? Canine enrichment involves providing activities for your dog which are stimulating to the senses and tend to their innate behaviours like digging, sniffing, playing, chasing and scavenging.  By enriching your dog you are mentally, physically and emotionally stimulating them. Stuffable treat toys are the perfect toys for enrichment activities!

Dog’s Life Natural Rubber Toys encourage enrichment by allowing treats and spreads to be stuffed into specifically designed openings.

ROUND UP OF THE DOG’S LIFE NATURAL RUBBER TOYS

There are four designs to choose from: Treat Hider, Africa Ball, Gloop Loop, and Fetchstix.

  • Made from natural, non-toxic rubber. This entire range is biodegradable, and free of any harmful chemicals like BPA, phthalates, latex and vinyl.
  • Dishwasher safe. They’re easy to clean and totally safe to put on the top shelf of the dishwasher!
  • Affordably priced. The toys range from R80 to R215 making them substantially cheaper than International competitors.
  • Eye-catching colours. They come in a range of colours which are easily spotted by your dog’s limited colour vision. Choose from Hot Pink, Turquoise, Grey or Yellow.
  • Floats in water. They make the perfect beach, pool or river play toys!
  • Locally designed. These toys are locally designed and sold which makes them a first for South African stuffable treat toys.

  • Durable for persistent and medium chewers. Each toy is appropriately durable depending on the size of the toy. The bigger the size, the more durable the toy. Although these toys are extremely durable, they are not indestructible to heavy chewers. We recommend the Large Africa Ball and Large Fetchstix for heavy chewers.
  • Ergonomically shaped designs. Each toy is designed to be easily held by eager paws.
  • Hollow in the centre. Aside from the Fetchstix, each Natural Rubber Toy is hollow in the centre to ensure optimal treat stuffing capacity.
  • Safety air vent. The Africa Ball and Treat Hider both have safety air vent holes at the bottom of the toys to prevent suction from occurring which would result in your dog’s tongue getting stuck.
  • Retains its shape. These toys are made from hard but flexible rubber. This means that they’re soft enough on gums and teeth but hard enough to maintain their original form which withstands your dog’s natural chewing impulses.
  • Great for all ages. As mentioned above, the rubber is soft enough for teething pups and sensitive gums for ageing dogs. We recommend the Fetchstix for teething pups and the Gloop Loop for older doggies.
  • Multifunctional. Lastly, I love the fact that these are passive and active toys. Not only do they make play time fun by floating and bouncing around, they make treat and meal times more stimulating. Consider ditching the bowl by stuffing these toys with your dog’s kibble or raw food.

Overall, I can’t recommend these toys enough. They’re designed and sold locally, are natural and free from nasties, and most importantly encourage a healthy mental stimulation for your dog. Head on over to the Dog’s Life website to change your dog’s life!
