You can teach young children pet responsibility by making them in charge of the water bowl. Teach them to check to see how full it is and to report to you. But its an adult’s responsibility to top up the water level. If your kid can carry a full water bowl without spilling, then they are older enough to do this too.
Distraction toys such as a Kong can provide additional hours of fun if you stuff it with Ultramix sweet potato or pumpkin puree and freeze the toy until the puree is solid. Be sure to give the stuffed Kong to your dog outside or somewhere where you won’t mind cleaning up the mess – if he doesn’t lick up everything for you! Peanut butter is another great option.
