3 Creative Ways To Hack Your Dog’s Toys

Introducing Super Chewer Play Hacks:

A series where we show you how to take your toys to a whole other level and challenge your dog in new, exciting ways. You can sign up here to get two multi-functional toys, two bags of healthy treats, and two meaty chews delivered to your door each month. Learn how to make your dog’s toys more engaging with our play hacks below!

Please note that every dog is different and that you know your dog better than we do! The great thing about play hacks is that you can tailor each hack to what your dog likes. If a play hack calls for peanut butter but your dog isn’t a fan, try canned pumpkin (not pie-filling) instead! Also, if a play hack recipe calls for an ingredient that your pup hasn’t had before (such as plain greek yogurt), try letting them taste just a little bit first before giving them a toy that’s filled with it! The last thing we want is an upset tummy. <3

1. Peanut Butter + Greek Yogurt + Chews

For this play hack, we used the Lovey Dove toy from our Birds and Bees box!

How to:

  • Remove the nylon wing and place the wingless bird onto a plate or parchment paper (it’s gonna get a little messy!).
  • Using a fork or a butter knife, put a light layer of peanut butter around the perimeter of the inside.
  • Glob in a couple spoonfuls of nonfat plain greek yogurt (or peanut butter! Whatever your dog prefers).
  • Stick a chew or bully stick or your dog’s favorite jerky through the inside.
  • Freeze overnight and enjoy!

This play hack can also be used with the Genius Mike toy, the Jump’N Jack toy, or anything similar!

2. Ice cube tray + Yogurt + Blueberries

For this play hack, we used the Doggle toy from our Game Night box!

How to:

  • Using an ice cube tray, freeze cubes of plain greek yogurt and blueberries (you can also sprinkle any treat crumbles from treat bags that are almost empty!).
  • Freeze overnight.
  • Plop a yogurt cube or two into your Doggle and enjoy!

This play hack can also be used with the Bento Ball, the Zogoflex Tux toy, or anything similar!

3. Freeze Peanut Butter + Chews

For this play hack, we used the Tumbling Treat Tower toy from our Game Night box!

How to:

  • Flip the tower upside-down so that the hole is at the top.
  • Stick a chew, bully stick, or antler straight through the top hole.
  • Place another chew, bully stick, or antler in through the side (the two will intersect!).
  • Glob peanut butter into the holes.
  • Cut off external parts of the chew if needed.
  • Freeze overnight and enjoy!

This play hack can also be used with the Hol-ee Roller ball, or Hol-ee Football, or anything similar!
