[quote=JessicaM]What if they only eat kibble? How do you transition to them eating out of a bowl? Do I just need to read further? Thanks for any advice. Like I said, total newbie here. Had dogs before, just older ones when they came to live with us.
Lots of treat toys use kibble. I have a buster cube, a tug-a-jug, and orbee ball, a squirrel dude, and some sort of football thing that all use kibble in them. I don't think it's that much of a transition. It's food; they'll eat it.
But I also don't think you ever need to transition them. My 9 and 7 year old eat out of treat toys at least 4 days a week because it's more fun for them, keeps them busy, and gives their brains some activity instead of just gulping down food.
