Back To School Treat Box For Dogs Ideas

A treat box for dogs is the perfect back-to-school boredom buster. Dogs may get sad or bored when kids head back to school or college. Since dogs are pack animals, they may long for a family member who leaves the home.

One of the best things you can do for your sad or withdrawn dog is maintaining a routine. Every good dog deserves some new toys and goodies to cheer them up. Dogs feel the blues now and then. Cheer them up with a custom treat box of goodies full of games, treats, and more.

Instead of scouring the Internet and pet supply stores for products, we’ve rounded up a collection of some new and exciting goodies to gift your dog (with a bonus for dog moms and dads). Let us know which ones will be your new favorites and tell your dogs we said hello!

P.S. Even if you don’t have kids going back to school, every good doggo deserves a surprise box of fun now and then.

Slow Feeder Dog Bowl

Some puppies and adult dogs devour their food, which can lead to bloat or any number of digestive issues. Slow them down with the Outward Hound Fun Feeder Slo’ Bowl Slow Feeder Dog Bowl. I used this bowl with my 6-month-old Cocker Spaniel puppy, Alvin.

He eats soft food, so I tossed some crunchy treats throughout the Slo’ Bowl. He had a blast searching, scouring, and enjoying each piece. I felt good that he wasn’t scarfing the treats. As a bonus, the whole experience lasted longer, and we had fun bonding together.

Learn about the Slo’ Bowl and how it works for wet, dry, raw, and frozen foods at the Outward Hound website.
