My Pugs Ate A Dingo!
Well, I’ve been on the prowl for the perfect treat for the pugs during the day. Something that occupies their teeth, something thats tasty to them, affordable and easy. I love the Kong (as I blogged about recently), but I know that they eat it and all the stuff inside it in about an hour. Also, it can be somewhat time consuming to fill it up good in the morning when time is at a premium (since I like to sleep in until the LAST POSSIBLE MOMENT).
Well, I’ve found a solution. Ever since we’ve been giving the pugs these “Dingo Wag’n Wraps”, they haven’t chewed up any furniture or baseboards in the house in about a month! Granted this also coincides with our liberal sprinkling of cayenne pepper all over their favorite chewing spots. AND we’ve been really trying to take them on a long walk every day. But all of this combined seems to be really working!
If you haven’t tried these Dingo things…give them a try for your dogs. They are premium rawhide stuffed with real meat….according to the package they are “healthy and fun to chew”; Dingo rawhide chews help promote clean teeth and gums. A package of 8 costs about $7 (Wal-Mart or Target) and that lasts us a week (one a day). Normally I only give them one a day and let them fight it out for the Dingo, but today I was feeling generous and gave them each a Dingo.
Here are a few fun photos I snapped as I was walking out the door. See, they’re bothing chewing on them, here, except Ruki is sneaking looks over at Poley’s.
Here’s the photo of Ruki stealing’ Po-Po’s Dingo. I love the body language of Poley in this photo. He’s like…looking down at his empty paws…What? Where did my Dingo go!?
For this last photo, I intervened and made sure they each had one…I don’t know how long that lasted, though.
I’m sure they were back to stealing and wreastling once I left the house. However, it doesn’t really matter to me…as long as they stop chewing everything!
What treats do you give your dogs?
