Hi, what's the best way to introduce arnie to the kong. We want him to have it whilst we are not there so he doesn't see us leaving him a bad thing. Trouble is we just can't get him to understand what to do with it! Any tips and advice?

Thanks xx

If you fill it with treats he will smell and try to eat it, there comes the beauty of trying, spending some time to take the treats out.

We have filled it with his favourite treats which he will go nuts for if we bury them under blankets but is just interested in working out how to get them out of the kong!

You need to start with the challenge being super easy. Put 3 or 4 small treats in there so even a light bump will make them fall out. Once Arnie's getting those treats out with confidence, gradually make it more and more difficult. If you start with the kong totally stuffed so the dog really has to work, the first time, to get anything out, many will give up.
