[mk_fancy_title size=”54″ font_weight=”300″ margin_top=”60″ font_family=”none” align=”center”]Here’s how it works.[/mk_fancy_title][mk_fancy_title size=”22″ font_weight=”300″ font_family=”none” align=”center”]You just need to hide the food in the 14 different compartments.  your dog will need to use his paws in order to “dig” to find the hidden food.  This will slow your dogs eating speed and have him “work” for his food.  This makes lunch time much more fun for him.[/mk_fancy_title]
