The point is for them to be busy rolling it around to get the treats out rather than chewing it to bits, so once they realize chewing doesn't get the treats they usually stop trying and play the game
I have something similar to this that I bought for my dog at my parent's house.. but it's a giant rubber ball. I need to find it!! lol

Here's the buster cube website: Buster Cube - Home

If you go to the dealers page there's a map for you to find where the nearest place that sells them is. Or you can buy them online, both PetSmart and Dr. Fosters sell them from their websites. Its a pretty inexpensive toy considering how long they usually last.

Yeah, I will definetely have to look into one of those. He has two dogs, though, would it be wise to get more than one so there's no jealousy?? lol

Yep, having two so there's no arguments over it is a good idea. Plus, if one dog is emptying the cube really fast while the other is "slower" at it then having two lets both dogs get their fair share. Well, until they start swapping cubes halfway through

anti depressants will not "drug" him, as in, make him dull and drowsy. They will simply remove the anxiety


As far as the behavior on walks, does he like food? I would carry food with you (hidden) and when he whines, back up (literally) until you can gain his attention, and then reward him for looking at you. Since you are already walking him anyway, this wont add much time to your day

We could definetely try that.. but isn't there a possibility he'd think we're giving him the treat as a result of his whining?? Ugh.. I should know this, I did obedience training with my dog at home.. lol

haha, its a daily dose, so it would go in with his food. The drug suggestion is of course, after all other things have been tried. I would really recommend the following

Amazon.com: DAP Dog Appeasing Pheromone Electric Diffuser (48 mL): Kitchen & Dining Amazon.com: DAP Dog Appeasing Pheromone Electric Diffuser (48 mL): Kitchen & Dining

to be used in conjunction with training.


Bustercubes are awesome BTW. Its hard plastic, he shouldn't be able to destroy it....I would separate the the dogs when its in use.

I also like this one

Amazon.com: StarMark Bob-A-Lot Interactive Pet Toy: Home & Garden Amazon.com: StarMark Bob-A-Lot Interactive Pet Toy: Home & Garden

its a bit easier to figure out for the dog.
