Toys that can have treats put inside, such as the Kong Extreme Dog Toy, that the dog must work at to get out can help eliminate bad behaviors by keeping the dogs' attention on the toy with the treats. If the dog is chewing and working hard to get the food, this means they will not be chewing furniture, barking, or doing other unwanted behaviors. Their primary focus is to get the treat or food out of that toy. In the wild, canines must work to get food. People make it easy for their pets to get food at home, therefore boredom sets in, which can lead to the bad behavioral habits, such as chewing on shoes or furniture. Owners that give their pets treats, or even their regular food, in items like toys that the pet must work at to get to the food, will have a happier and better behaved pet.
