Brain training intelligence toys are flying off the shelves this year and comfort toys are also in big demand,” said Alice Cross, Executive Director of Maxi Zoo.“Our biggest seller is the Kong Wobbler brain training intelligence toy. It is great for teaching dogs to slow down while eating, which helps to reduce pet obesity. You load it with your pet’s favourite treats and they learn how to roll it around to dispense the treats,” said Alice.“Our Cat Scratching Board is popular with cat owners. It is shaped like a block of cheese with a board that cats love to scratch. Pet owners who have had their furniture destroyed by scratching cats also consider the €16.99 cost as a great investment in protecting their furniture,” she added.“We have a range of similar toys for dogs who like to chew things and the big seller is a steak shaped toy. These become comfort toys for dogs just like children have their ‘security blanket’. The steak toy is a huger seller and something of a festive tradition,” Alice continued.Cat owners are also demanding toys t

Maxi Zoo stocks similar toys for dogs who like to chew things and the big seller is a steak shaped toy. These become comfort toys for dogs, just like children with their ‘security blanket’.

Cat owners are also looking for toys which pander to their pet’s natural instinct to hunt.
