Dog Toys for Separation Anxiety

Your Source for All Things Dog in Sarasota

For our money, nothing beats a Kong Toy stuffed with creamy peanut butter – and then frozen for a few hours. This cold and yummy treat keeps our dog busy for at least an hour.

There are other neat toys out there too, like the Talk to Me Treatball. This plastic ball has has a chip that lets you record something, like “Good Dog Scout!” or “night night”.
