Why is enrichment good for your dog?

Dog enrichment is a tool in your arsenal to entertain your dog, to slow down their eating, to avoid things like bloat, occupy them whilst you go out or to work and to stimulate their brain - yes dogs need brain stimulation too. It's great for their health and well-being. Meal time for most pooches is over within seconds or a minute, using enrichment slows this down and makes it a more enjoyable experience.

Please feed your dog a balanced diet. We typically use Raw4Paws in our bases and feed this daily. Use real eats in proportion and consult a nutritionist.


Below we break down foods into the following enrichment groups; Spreadables - this will form the base of your enrichment. Snacks & Superfood Additions - what you can add to your dog's enrichment!

Spreadables (your base)

Spreadables are your typical base level or "filler". Depending on the enrichment tool you're using, whether this be an eMat, Can Toy or similar - these will typically make up a portion of what you're using. Note, when using enrichment for full meals, this is where Raw or Kibble will be utilised.

Greek Yoghurt - any brand. Ensure Greek and not a flavour / sweetened.

Cottage Cheese - any brand

Raw Dog Food - our preference is Raw4Paws

Eggs - Chicken, Quail and Duck Eggs are our choice

Doggy Peanut Butter - not the human type. Avoid anything with Xylotal - poisonous to dogs.

Banana - mashed up

Cucumbers - shredded and mixed with Cottage Cheese is a favourite

Carrot - shredded and mixed with Greek Yoghurt is a favourite

Pumpkin - cooked and pureed

Sweet Potato - cooked and pureed

Snacks & Superfood Additions

Meat:

There are so many proteins that dog's can eat. Mixing it up is ideal for your dog's well being, ensuring they get a mixture of essential vitamins and nutrients. We do not recommend in any capacity feeding dogs a vegan diet. These are the common proteins we use:

Beef

Lamb

Chicken

Kangaroo

Turkey

Goat

Venison

Seafood:

Seafood dog's can eat - there is a lot! Probably a lot more than you were thinking. Here's a list of our favourites:

Squid (raw or cooked)

Scallops (cooked only)

Lobster (cooked)

Prawns (cooked)

Salmon - (raw or cooked). If feeding raw, freeze for 6 weeks prior. This kills any parasites. Remove any bones.

Crab (cooked)

Oysters - (cook, remove shell)

Sardines - (raw or cooked)

Flounder - Grill fillets for your dog

Whilst this is a great list of healthy seafood, avoid anything with long lifespans - such as Tuna or Swordfish. These are more likely to contain amounts of heavy metal due to polution which can have serious negative benefits.

Vegetables:

Veggies and fruit are a dog's best friend too! Who would have thought? Dog's are omnivores and have eaten both meat and plants for thousands of years. In fact, they would eat the tastiest part of most animals (the stomach), which would included various vegetables and fruit in different stages of the fermented process.

Kale - mixed into your meal or pureed

Spinach - mixed into your meal or pureed

Beetroot - grated

Carrots - grated or cut into small pieces

Green Beans - cut in half

Celery - cut into small pieces

Broccoli - cut into small pieces

Brussel Sprouts - (cook - boil)

Sweet Corn - small amounts

Cauliflower - grated or cut into small pieces

Fruit:

Pears - cut into small pieces

Oranges - cut into small pieces

Apples - cut into small pieces

Blueberries - added on top or pressed into grooves

Raspberries - added on top or pressed into grooves

Blackberries - added on top or pressed into grooves

Watermelon - remove all seeds, cut into pieces

Mango - no skin and no pit. Serious choking hazard. Cut into pieces

Papaya - absolutely no seeds. Cut into pieces

Strawberries - added on top or pressed into grooves

Rockmelon - absolutely no seeds. Cut into pieces

Superfoods:

Doggy Jelly - prepare in different moulds

Goji Berries - serving size already (sprinkle over or mix in)
