A dog treat ball, or IQ ball, is a great way to keep your dog active and mentally stimulated as they figure out ways of getting at the treats inside the ball that comes with varying degrees of difficulty. It’s a great form of entertainment and can keep a dog busy for hours. It is however not to be used as a substitute for master/dog interaction. They still need to burn off energy by running outside and fetching a stick. But on those rainy days, they can have fun inside.
