Our staff are experienced and will help you find what is right for your dog!
Food & Treat Dispensing Toys:
To make your dogs life more enjoyable, gives him fun work to do when he's home alone or when you can't play with them!
A dog's natural instinct is to scavenge and work for their food – not to have it delivered for free in a bowl. One reason dogs develop behavior problems is sheer boredom, resulting from a lack of physical exercise, problem-solving and outdoor exploration. Food puzzle toys gives dogs a chance to work for their food. These toys are sturdy containers which hold and dispenses food or treats. The dog must work to get food out by shaking, pawing, rolling, nibbling and licking a puzzle toy. The effort dogs make to get their food from these toys eases boredom, reduces destructive behavior and burns energy.
Jollytails carries some of our favorite food delivery toys from the Busy Buddy, KONG and Nina Ottoson line. We suggest feeding at least one cup of your dogs regular food through interactive toys to give your dog entertainment and mental stimulation.

About Dog Food:
A good dog food is critical to the health of your dog. We sell only quality food with your best friend's health in mind. We offer limited ingredients diets, high meat content and grain free products.
Grain Free Dog Foods: Grains (such as corn) are not an essential part of a canine’s diet and can be difficult for your dog to digest. Many dog food brands tend to use grains as low-cost filler, so avoid foods that place grains on the top of the ingredient list. Dogs are (by their genetic pedigree) carnivores, not herbivores. Their teeth, their digestive systems and their behavior clearly confirm this fact. Dogs must also be given credit for their notable omnivorous ability, too. After all, even though they do have the ability to eat a remarkably diverse diet, it’s wrong to ignore the fact that their bodies are clearly optimized for eating meat.
Dogs can eat a variety of foods but they naturally prefer meat. Their bodies are not designed to consume grain day after day for their whole lives.

Corn is one of the most problematic ingredients in dog foods. In addition to having little nutritional value, it can lead to all sorts of problems such as allergies, excessive shedding or dandruff, loose stools, gassiness and flatulence, itchy skin, and irritability are just a few examples. Corn diets have been linked to low serotonin uptake in animals, which can promote aggression, lack of impulse control and even increased sexual behavior. You might never think to associate these problems with the grain in your dog's diet, but that is often the case. Insects — and their droppings and corpses — can even be found in cheap, low-quality grains. Unfortunately, it is one of the most popular fillers in many dog food brands. Be sure to read the labels and avoid corn in dog food. Why is corn found in dog food? Because it’s cheap and maximizes company profits!
“Lots of concentrated grains are not good for dogs or people, and will cause lots of massive health problems in the next fifty years.” – Dr Ian Dunbar
While there good quality foods that use healthier grains, we recommend a grain-free diet whenever possible because ultimately grains are an unnatural food source for canines. Dogs do not have the long, winding digestive tract required to digest grains. Dogs have a short straight digestive tract designed to digest meat. Their teeth are also designed for meat consumption (all their teeth are sharpened and not flat like humans and other omnivores). They also lack a special enzyme needed to break down starchy carbohydrates.
We strongly recommend a meat based diet for all dogs. The ideal dog food should be:
- Higher in meat-based protein (no corn)
- Higher in natural fats and oils
- Lower in carbohydrates
- Formulated from a named (non-generic) animal source
- Free of animal or vegetable by-products (cheap left over product not fit for humans)
- No artificial flavoring, coloring or preservatives (A dog should want to eat the food naturally!)
