Dog Training Product Review: Halo Bottle Treat Dispenser

July 18, 2012 – 07:05 am

It’s another rainy day in Park Slope, Brooklyn… which means no trip to Prospect Park today. In her older age, Lucy hates even a light drizzle. Thus, it’s the perfect opportunity to test out a new dog training product.

I cannot tell you how much I love food puzzles for dogs. I really regard them more as dog training tools than just toys. Our pups need more excitement in their lives than just spending hours lying on the couch while the humans are out making money all day. My clients have heard me say time and time again, “Food projects are a great way to mentally and physically stimulate your dog.” That’s why I get so excited when new products come on the market!

Today we introduce to you the “Halo Bottle Treat Dispenser” by a company called Contempo. I recently learned about this puzzle from a dog training colleague who works for PetSmart where this item is being sold (maybe even exclusively, I’m not sure). The concept is ingenious. It’s a rubber attachment that fits on any average water bottle thereby turning it into a fun treat dispenser. Some dogs already love crunching on discarded plastic bottles, so I have a feeling it’s going to be a big hit with a lot of pooches out there.

The injury

Well you are doing all of the right things. there might be some kind of fabric brace that would help but this is all out of my area. what i can help you with is food.
i have always fed my dogs scraps. no sweets or spicy food but stews and soups and leftovers. i supplement with dry dog food. so i never bought any of the gravy foods that are being recalled.
all this being said, every d...og and do that much. it is very sad what some owners do to their dogs. the chow i'm fostering was so abused that it breaks my heart to even think about it. i am happy to give him love and a peaceful home for as long as i am alive and kicking. but huge vet bills, well, i am a poor artist and can't afford them so i have to deal with those kinds of issues differently.
take care and good luck
