The Doggytube cannot completely replace traditional chewy treats. It is more of a tool to vary your dog's feeding experience and support specific applications. The Doggytube is a container into which you can fill soft pastes, creams, or semi-solid wet food, which are then dispensed in controlled amounts. This can be useful for:
- Training: You can use the Doggytube to provide rewards during training by dispensing small amounts of treats.
- Distraction and enrichment: The Doggytube can also be used as an enrichment toy to keep your dog occupied and mentally challenged.
- Administering medication: If your dog needs to take medication, you can place it inside the tube to make it more appealing for your dog.
Traditional chewy treats are often solid and help clean and strengthen your dog's teeth. The Doggytube, on the other hand, is better suited for dispensing soft treats in a playful manner. You can use both in combination to fulfill your dog's needs.
You can fill the Doggytube with soft pastes, creams, or semi-solid wet food. Here are some suitable fillings:
- Dog pastes: There are special dog pastes available in various flavors that are suitable for the Doggytube. These pastes are soft and tasty.
- Dog creams: Dog creams are also a good choice. They are soft, easy to dispense, and often come in various flavors.
- Semi-solid wet food: You can fill semi-solid wet food in the Doggytube, especially if it's creamy or finely chopped. Ensure it's not too firm so that it can flow easily through the tube.
- Homemade creations: You can also make your own treat mixtures as long as they have the right consistency. For example, homemade liver sausage mixtures or yogurt with pureed fruits.
Make sure the consistency of the filling is not too runny or too firm to avoid blockages in the Doggytube. Use treats that are safe for dogs and match your dog's individual preferences. Experiment a bit to find out what your dog likes best.
Cleaning the Doggytube is important to ensure hygiene and the longevity of the device. Here's how you can properly clean the Doggytube:
