dog.com , the premiere source for everything dog, is asking dog owners to look beyond the dog bowl.  Dogs should be encouraged to live a more active and energetic lifestyle that more closely mimics their canine ancestors, who spent their waking hours pursuing prey or scavenging in order to fill their stomachs.  One of the ways that this can be achieved is through the use of dynamic activities in relation to mealtime.

Similar to their human owners, pets suffer both physically and mentally when they are too idle and not challenged.  According to Dr. Marty Becker, the vet from “Good Morning America,” dogs today are  "born retired,’ and this out-of-the-wild lifestyle often means behavioral problems: excess barking, leash pulling or chewing furniture when they need mind and body stimulation they're no longer getting. Too often, these problems put their lives at risk, when fed up pet owners dump them at animal shelters, where they may not find new homes. And it's all so unnecessary, when you can give a dog a food puzzle to work off energy, work their brain, enrich their lives.”

While mealtime typically consists of owners filling their pets’ dog bowls with food, they should be offering them a range of activities that push their pets to earn their food, not just expect it, such as food puzzles. Alex Tabibi, CEO and Founder of  dog.com ’s parent company, TABcom, explains, “‘food puzzles’ are toys designed to be filled with kibble, small treats, even frozen foods that encourage dogs to work to get to the goodies.  Instead of mindlessly wolfing down a bowl of food, the dog has to hunt to find the food and work for a long time to eat what would take a minute or less in a bowl.  Eating out of food puzzles and games takes memory, skill and manipulation, all of which help dogs find healthier, less-destructive ways to release pent-up energy.   dog.com  offers various items that reinforce play with food including the Kong Biscuit Ball, Kong Extreme Goodie Bone, Starmark Everlasting Treat Ball, Natural Filled Bone and a host of others.”   http://www.dog.com/dog-toys/kong-toys/10/

Building upon this philosophy,  dog.com  is also currently offering their largest assortment of dog food brands at competitive prices.  17 new brands have just been added to the site, which currently include Pedigree, Canine Caviar, The GoodLife Recipe, Bil-Jac and Kibbles ‘n Bits.  These brands come in a host of flavors including chicken, beef, duck, assorted and many others.  http://www.dog.com/dog-food/141/    In July,  dog.com  will add an additional 50 brands of foods, including a wide range of organics.
