What do you do to entertain your super smart and busy Belgium Malinois? You build them a bottle game, of course.
Bella the Belgium Malinois is a super energetic, intelligent dog. She has loads of energy and loves to play and please her owner.
Belgium Malinois are herding dogs that love to work. They form super close bonds with their owners but are not content to be couch potatoes. They need to have a job with plenty to do to burn off all their tons of energy.
They excel at all sorts of jobs including dog sports and obedience. They love people but their need for activity and plenty of action is the key to their happiness. For these dogs, keeping them busy is very important for their physical and mental well-being.
Behavior problems happen in this breed when they don’t get to spend enough time with their owners, training, getting lots of exercises, playing, and challenging their minds. Malinois owners are very devoted and spend a lot of time working with and playing with their dogs, every single day.
So, it’s no surprise that Malinois owners also spend a lot of time thinking up ways to keep their dogs busy and entertained. Eveline Poot is one such owner who came up with this great toy idea for her dog, Bella.
She wrote, “I've had this toy made for Bella because she has a lot of energy, her breed is extremely intelligent, has a big will to please and she wants to play all the time!”
Since she posted this video, it’s been viewed an amazing five million times! Bella is a true star, and she loves her bottle game. Most important, it keeps her occupied and mentally stimulated while she plays it.
Like other food puzzle games, when Bella plays, she gets to use her mind, problem-solving skills, and nose and is rewarded with food. That’s a win in any Malinois book. Plus, it’s also a win for her mom who came up with something her clever dog enjoys that also keeps her busy for a little while.
Would your dog enjoy a bottle game of their own? We think so! We hope you enjoyed this fun video. As always, please feel free to share with your friends.
