Izzy is my greyhound and, periodically, I fill her food toy which has been made from plastic drink bottles with some of her dinner. When she’s hungry enough, it’s game on!
With experience, Izzy has become an expert at figuring out this toy. Each of the bottles has a different degree of tightness and spin – and so some are more difficult than others to get food from.
That’s called enrichment – something meaningful and rewarding.
