Top 10 Treats and Toys

 In General, Promotions

One of the questions we get asked most often is, do our dogs ever have time to be just dogs? The answer is a resounding yes! It’s hard work to be an exceptional service dog-in-training, but serving our nation’s Warriors is worth it. Our dogs only work about 10% of the time. The rest of their time is spent taking naps and playing like regular dogs. Check out this list of our dog’s top ten favorite treats and toys.

10. Whimzees

Tasty and good for your dog’s teeth? Who could ask for more? We love Whimzees because they are all-natural and have the Veterinary Oral Health Council’s seal of approval.

9. Tuffy Stuffed Animals

Tuffy Stuffed Animals come in all kinds of varieties, from Hippos to Lobsters to Bananas. These tough stuffed animals hold up to rough play and wash easily, making them a favorite of our dogs and Program Instructors.

A ball and a tug rope? Romp N’ Roll balls are the best of both worlds. When playing in the yard, these toys are a favorite go-to among our pups in training.

3. Kongs

Everyone knows that Kongs filled with peanut butter make a tasty treat. But did you know that licking a Kong teaches dogs how to soothe themselves? If a dog has this ability, they become a stronger candidate for Service Dog Placement.

You can never have enough kongs!

Our Program Instructors use peanut butter for everything. From bath time to filling Kongs, peanut butter is a great treat for our pups! We even use it for social therapy window visits.

1. Nylabones/Benebones

Chewing, chewing, chewing! It’s good for many things. Whether our dogs stay overnight in the kennels or go with their Puppy Parents, we always make sure they have a Nylabone or Benebone!
