The KONG Dispenser now comes in a variety of shapes and sizes. Or rather one true KONG Dispenser and a few of the classic KONG rubber dog toys that can be stuffed. The difference between the KONG Dispenser and the classic rubber dog toys is that the KONG Dispenser can be used to provide a good amount of kibble to ensure your Doberman has to work for his food – a good thing. While the original KONG rubber toys are great for playtime, a reward or as a training treat, they aren’t a vehicle for providing all the food a growing Doberman needs.
Being able to put a cup of dog kibble into the KONG Dispenser slows your Doberman from eating too quickly, entertains and challenges him and exercises his brain. Dogs get bored just like we do and as with us, the smarter your dog is the more stimulation he will need. Dobermans are one of the smartest breeds of dog so have a tendency to get bored quickly and suffer anxiety. These states of mind quickly turn to destructive or anti-social behaviour, such as destroying property or problem barking.
By keeping your Doberman entertained, making him work for his food, providing him with mental challenges or giving your ‘Velcro dog’ something to do so he doesn’t notice you having time to yourself, are all excellent reasons to invest in a KONG Dispenser.
The KONG Dispenser is also an invaluable crate training aid that can be kept in the crate as a special ‘only in the crate’ toy or to keep puppy busy so he loses track of time.
KONG Wobbler Food Dispensing Dog Toy
The Wobbler is a KONG-shaped toy and food dispenser. The Wobbler sits upright until pushed with a dog’s paw or nose, then dispenses treats as it wobbles, spins and rolls. Your Doberman will quickly learn that motion causes treats to fall out, but a little like the bounce of a rugby ball the unpredictable movement keeps the toy challenging for even the smartest Dobie.
Made in the USA of durable, FDA food-approved, high-strength polymer the Wobbler KONG Dispenser is a sturdy, economical choice for challenging puppies and keeping a bored Doberman entertained. It also offers portable entertainment for vacations or when your dog must be put into boarding kennels.
The Wobbler KONG Dispenser has a weighted bottom that holds it upright, if you’re old enough to remember the weebles (Weebles Wobble but They Don’t Fall Down) you’ll be familiar with the concept. The top half unscrews, and is large enough to hold one cup of kibble or a mix of treats. When screwed back together, the single hole opening at the top dispenses the kibble when your Dobie rolls the Wobbler onto its side.
Don’t let your Doberman see you unscrew the top portion to fill the KONG Dispenser with treats. He will learn to unscrew the toy to get all the treats at once. Seriously.
