NOT SUITABLE FOR GIANT AND LARGE FLAT-FACED BREEDS SUCH AS BULLDOGS
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 pouch set consists of three handy pouches that nest inside each other in which treats are hidden to provide puzzle-solving foraging games.
The highly versatile set of six mini pouches can be tucked inside the large pouch (that is included) or used with other products such as the bean bag forager, caterpillar or floor forager for added enrichment to create a more challenging foraging environment. They can also be filled with treats and hidden separately for your dog to search for. Each mini pouch is 20cm x 20cm square and comes with a large 40cm x 40cm single pouch.
The foraging pouches 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. Playing with the foraging pouches 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. Blind dogs can safely forage in the pouches too.
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.
