A food puzzle dispenser is an ideal way to engage your baby dog's brain, encourage her to think, and keep her targeting something legal instead of your shoes. A number of products are available. Most of them, though, are designed with adult dogs in mind.
The Orbee-Tuff Mazee design, though, seems ideal for the smaller mouths and less aggressive chewers like puppies. I particularly liked the design because it's a soft, flexible clear "ball" shell that makes virtually no noise even on a hard surface! It comes from Planet Dog--and as a bonus, the company sent me some of the Planet Dog "eats" treats to test with the Mazee. Magical-Dawg gave the treats all-paws-up (although he tried to EAT the whole treat ball toy!). See more information in my latest review of the Orbee-Tuff Mazee.
