Treat Bobber

Mongo has a rubber orange Treat Ball.  It is a hollow ball with an opening to the inside that allows Dad to put kibble into the middle of ball.  As Mongo rolls the ball around, the ball meters out treats.  Mongo LOVES Treat Ball.

However, Mongo is way to good at the treat ball game.  This means Mongo eats way too much kibble, and Dad spends all his time filling up treat ball.

So Dad bought Mongo a Treat Bobber for his birthday.  (Dad got Mongo’s at A DOG’S DREAM in Georgetown, WA)

Treat Bobber has adjustments to slow down the number of treats it issues.  And since it doesn’t roll as easily as a ball, it takes longer for Mongo to empty the Treat Bobber, theoretically at least.

That theory does not assume that Mongo will learn how to make Treat Bobber roll down the driveway, thereby spewing treats all along its path.  One or two trips down the driveway and Treat Bobber is empty. And then,when Mongo is done cleaning up after Treat Bobber, all he has to do is bring it back in to Dad for a refill.

After filling Mongo’s Treat Bobber repeatedly one day, Dad was heard to mutter to himself, “If only he would use his powers for good, instead of for appetizers.”

    Mongo is very smart… when it comes to things he wants! I had a tube Kong thing similar idea to ball and bobber… Breck learned to throw it in the air and they would fall out. Smarty pants dogs!
