    What keeps your puppy occupied at home?
    Mine likes chewing milk cartons....anything plastic including water bottles.
    she's not too bothered about the kong bones and other rubber bones.
    sometimes i put treats in plastic containers which you get fruit and veg in from the supermarket and that takes her a while to get the treats out.
    Any other top tips for keeping puppy entertained? :)

    The Yaker's Himalayan chews are good, it keeps mine occupied for about 15 mins at a time and then I take it away from her for a while. Mine doesn't care about plastic bones either!

    Sometimes I put her outside the living room, hide treats around the room, and then let her in and say 'find it'! She eventually learned that that meant there were treats and she had to sniff them out.

    The Licki Mat is also great and will keep her busy for 10-15 mins.

    A snuffle mat is a good idea too.

    Someone on here suggested I join the Facebook group called Canine Enrichment and I'm so glad they did! I've got so many ideas from there in order to keep my pup occupied and entertained.

    The plastic bottles and cardboard boxes are always good for puppies to chew on and destroy. Much cheaper and a lot more entertaining than expensive shop bought toys and chews.

    Thank you so much both.
    My puppy does love chewing cardboard, though I get a bit concerned as I'm sure she eats a bit too much of it during the chewing.
    Off to google licki mat and snuffle mat :)

    I put some baby food, mashed banana, bit of soft cheese, etc on the licki mat and then freeze it. It lasts ages :)

    Our puppy loves just about any of the toys from the pet shop so we're getting good value for money from those, but she also loves any sort of cardboard tubes and twigs.

    Unfortunately she also loves brightly-coloured rubber crocs.
