AiKiou: Stimulating Your Pets and Adoptables
AiKiou is building a hot reputation in the industry, picking up accolades from folks like Dr. Marty Becker and others. They sent the team at Embrace HQ a little something for everyone, cats and dogs alike, and we’ve been having a blast putting their pet enrichment products to the test.
Stimulo for Cats
By encouraging cats to get in touch with their innate desire to hunt and dig in burrows for their food, the Stimulo challenges a cat’s mind and body. Laura’s girl, Rocket, is shown here putting the feeder to the test. Notice that you can put the food inside the tunnels or in between them. It took Rocket a moment to get going but she and her sisters have been enjoying it since.
AiKiou 2nd Edition Canine Feeder
Brutus, (80 pounds of insanity in the form of a Labrador Retriever) has been testing the AiKiou large dog stimulation feeder. Normally, his person, Lindsey, feeds him by scattering his kibble on the floor to slow him down. Messy, but effective.
Needless to say, Brutus was very excited to try it...Lindsey mentioned a few things that might help you decide if this is the ideal stimulation feeder.
- “It slid all over my hardwood floor (which, admittedly, did help with slowing down his eating!)” So keep in mind it might be best suited to carpeted areas or outdoor feedings.
- “He also was actually able to snap a couple of pieces off within about 5 minutes.” Well, if you knew Brutus, this would come as no surprise. But, her final verdict: “... it could definitely help out dogs who live in homes with carpet, and maybe one with less destructive tendencies.”
AiKiou Junior Second Edition
Junior Second Edition
Stimulating a dog’s desire to dig and burrow, the AiKiou for smaller dogs, was a better match for Jenna’s new little buddy, Louie, who did his darndest to get every bit out of the Junior AiKiou feeder. It’s rotating top and 6 openings with treat blockers will force a dog to work a little harder for his treat or meal. Or, in Louie’s case: “He just picks it up and throws it around until all the kibble falls out... He may not be a genius, but he gets by…”
Stuff-less Squeaker Toy
Last, but certainly not least, was the real hit from our AiKiou test pack, the stuffing-less squeaker toy, known in our offices as “the fur poof.” Every pet that’s tried it loves it! From Embracer Kyle’s test with his two Havanese:
“They both absolutely love it, I was surprised by how much, actually. It is the only toy they never seem to lose interest in. Indeed, it is one of only a couple toys that my older dog notices at all. It is also a tough product as it has survived quite a bit of torment.”
Rich’s dog, Ginger, has also been enjoying it: “Ginger loves to carry it around with her and chew and lick it. So much that she doesn't even want me to throw it for her.”
Even the resident Doberman and Rottweiler have been getting in on the poof action, so this toy is getting around, all with rave reviews.
