PickPocket Foragers are fully washable/tumble dryable fleece feeders in which dogs hunt for treats inside pockets. They are simple to use, easy to launder and bring all the benefits of foraging into your dog’s home.
Each PickPocket crate hanging forager ties to your crate and has horizontal pockets for your dog rummage through to find treats. It is excellent for dogs on crate rest, those needing gentle weight-bearing exercise or those who cannot bend easily to eat, and is perfect distraction when you need your dog to stand for grooming.
Crate foragers are suitable for all ages and all breeds and can be successfully used by brachycephalic (flat faced) dogs. They are ideal mental stimulation for dogs on post-operative care, on restricted exercise or for those with reduced mobility due to arthritic conditions. Eating from the crate forager can provide these dogs with a few minutes gentle weight-bearing exercise. Foraging games are especially beneficial to senior dogs with cognitive dysfunction and ‘golden oldies’ whose other senses may be in decline and who come to rely more on olfaction. The crate forager is especially suited to visually impaired dogs, senior dogs and puppies as the skill level required is easy yet the game is highly rewarding, satisfying and safe.
Small crate forager: 25 pockets, 12cm wide x 6cm deep. Fits a small crate.
Medium crate forager: 25 pockets, 15cm wide x 8cm deep. Fits a medium crate.
Large crate forager: 24 pockets, 20cm wide x 8cm deep. Fits a large crate.
Warning! Some owners are concerned that their dog will chew the fleece, however most dogs find foraging so immensely rewarding that this instinct usually overrides their desire to bite the fabric. Please ALWAYS supervise your dog and follow the instructions for use on the packaging to minimise risk. No dog should be left alone with any of the PickPocket Forager range as ingesting fabric could lead to serious medical issues. If you have any concerns or suspect your dog has swallowed some fabric, please consult your veterinary surgeon immediately.
