As dog lovers, we all want to spoil our pups. Toys are great, but can be expensive and easily destroyed. Why not use a few items you’ve got around the house and DIY not just a toy, but an engaging activity for your beloved pooch? Introducing … busy boxes!

Busy boxes are an exciting and easy way to mentally exercise your dog’s mind as well as give him some yummy treats! Not only do dogs love receiving these boxes, but they provide an appropriate opportunity for your dog to think, chew and enjoy. Busy boxes are simple to make, inexpensive and entertaining to watch!

Materials Needed:



Step 1- Prepare The Box


Step 2 – Freeze The Box



Step 3- Give The Box



Remember, mental stimulation for your dog can be just as beneficial as physical exercise. Busy boxes are just one way to exercise your dog’s brain. They are great in summer months, when taking an hour long walk just isn’t possible in the heat. Providing your dog with fun and engaging ways to use his mind is great for your dog, and fun to watch!
