Like most Goldies, Polly loves her grub and tends to wolf her dinner quickly, so when I saw the 'Tornado' dog toy by Nina Ottosson, I couldn't resist ordering.
Fun with Nina Ottosson's 'Tornado' training toy
It's a fun, durable, doggie puzzle made from tough plastic ... you simply pop food treats into the sections, then pup has to work out how to swivel them to find her treats ... Polly absolutely loves having her breakfast in it!
Puppy crate training
By the way, for those of you wondering about crate training, all I can say is we started well, but abandoned it after the first few months. One poorly overnight tummy episode in a closed crate was enough to convince me it wasn't fair to put Polly through that again, so I started to leave her crate door open at night and bought her a nice squishy dog bed, thinking she would probably tiptoe out of her crate and sleep in it the moment I left the room, but would still be able to hide in her crate if she ever felt insecure ...
Night night Polly!
Silly me, I forgot there was a couch in that room too! Polly isn't allowed on our living room couch and I am happy to say she does respect that rule, but we've had to give in and let her sleep on our other couch - there's just no other option as it's in her bedroom! We throw over a large snuggly fleece blanket and that's where her ladyship settles for the night ... it's a dog's life eh?!
