If you need a little extra time to yourself when you get home from work, consider buying your dog a food dispensing toy like the Canine Genius - Leo. Food dispensing toys provide great mental stimulation for your pooch by making them work for their supper.
Cat owners, these toys are also fun for your chubby, active and/or young cat. Check out SlimCat Cat Food Dispenser.
