Koda's become ridiculous in how quickly he gobbles down his kibble, so we thought we'd try a new method of feeding him...Dispensing it to him slowly. This is his first experience with a treat ball, but he seems to be getting the hang of it. At first all he wanted to do was pick it up in his mouth and walk around with it, now he's getting the concept that he needs to nose it around and food will be dispensed for him to eat. Once he got that concept (Within about 5 minutes), I was working on teaching him to keep it within a certain radius because he was dispensing food all over the living room, haha. He knows "pick it up, bring it, and drop it", so I just implemented them in regards to the ball. If it got too far, I told him to pick it up, bring it to a reasonable spot, drop it, and start rolling it around again.
He's catching on. Anyway...It's obviously slowing his eating down, and I find it rather funny. Thought you guys might like to see him in action. P.S. - Ignore the phone conversation in the background, sorry!
