My Lady is all about this thing called “enrichment” for us. Now, I couldn’t tell ya what the heck that is WOOF! But, here is what I do know. ‘Round here, we don’t like goin’ outside without my Lady. And, well, ya guessed it. My Lady can’t just stop everything and spend the day outside. Unfortunately, she has to do a lot more typin’ on that computer than I do. Problem is, while she is a typin’ we are all just layin’ there lookin’ at her. That’s when she starts a talkin’ ’bout enrichment activities and mental stimulation. Say what? I’m not gonna pretend that I can decipher them big words. All I know is it comes down to us gettin’ fun PAW5 Rock ‘N Bowl Puzzle Feeders! Now that, I can understand WOOF!

PAW5 Rock 'N Bowl

Us pups love our PAW5 Rock ‘N Bowl Puzzle Feeders! It’s fun to paw and make it rock. The more it rocks, the more food it spits out! I s’pose it’s a little like workin’ for your food. What all that has to do with enrichment and mental stimulation, I don’t know. But, I’m just a dog so what do I know? WOOF! Lemme get my Lady to tell ya more about it.

Here’s what my Lady says about the PAW5 Rock ‘N Bowl Puzzle Feeder

Our dogs are our best friends and always by our side. And, if your dogs are like mine – they are Velcro dogs. Mine won’t leave my side long enough to go outside to play by themselves! Even though they are probably bored silly, they would rather lay at my feet and watch me type away. It is the reason I search out puzzle bowls and toys for them. Providing enrichment activities like dog puzzles allows them to use their problem solving abilities and keeps their minds stimulated.

PAW5 has been a favorite company of mine for a long while now and you may remember our series on enrichment activities brought to us by PAW5. But, just in case you haven’t been introduced and before I tell you about the PAW5 Rock ‘N Bowl Puzzle Feeder, let me introduce you to them.

You may be thinking “what is the point of a bowl with holes in it”, right? It may seem strange to us to get a nugget of food at a time out of a bowl, but our dogs love it! I love that it makes them put their thinking cap on and use their problem-solving skills in order to get the food. It adds an enrichment activity to their meal times. Instead of eating the same old food, out of the same old bowl, then laying there bored – mealtime becomes an awarding and enriching challenge for them. The PAW5 Rock ‘N Bowl puzzle feeder brings fun and excitement to their meal time!

Paw5 Rock ‘N Bowl is Easy to Use?

The PAW5 Rock ‘N Bowl is easy to use. Simply fill the bowl with your regular dog food like you would a normal bowl. Pour the food on the top and it will settle into the compartment below. When your dog paws or nudges the bowl, the nuggets will come out of the holes on the bottom.

There is  no training at all! One small wobble of the bowl and a nugget coming out encourages them and they go to work. Dogs love the challenge and playing their way through mealtime! It brings a whole new meaning to playing with your food huh?

Providing mental stimulation and enrichment activities for our dogs makes them happy dogs. It also uses pent-up energy that might otherwise turn into destructive behavior! So, if you are having behavior problems related to boredom, perhaps a PAW5 Rock ‘N Bowl is just what you need! It will give your dog an activity to do and use their problem-solving abilities, while working off pent up energy! You can’t go wrong with that!

Check out this fun PAW5 Puzzle Feeder video to see how it works!

I am always torn between needing to be doing one thing and knowing my dogs need to be doing another. While I spend quality time with my dogs, I often feel guilty when I am on the computer for long hours at a time. Dogs NEED mental stimulation and enrichment activities daily to stay healthy and happy! Dogs love using their problem-solving abilities! I imagine it is a little like it is for us. We tackle a problem and when we solve the problem, we get a satisfying feeling from it.

Just as it is good for our minds to do puzzles and stay active, it probably is for theirs too. Good product.

That's cute about your dogs not liking to go outside without you. I won't let my cat go outside without me. Too dangerous. My cat, like your dogs, sits beside me while I'm on here typing wondering why I am doing that instead of throwing him a ball for him to run after. They're great, aren't they?

My dog would get so much enjoyment from this. He's a terrier and loves to be mentally challenged.
