Why Dogs Love Bubbles
Do dogs really like dog bubbles?
It must be instinctual because every dog, no matter size, shape, breed or age, seems to get excited once they see some colorful dog bubbles floating through the air. All of a sudden, the bone a once-content dog was chewing falls to the ground and the new, immediate goal is to pop each and every one of those floating treats. Of course, what makes this fun bubble-popping game even more irresistible is when the dog bubbles are scented with bacon or chicken scents.
Good thing all that bubble popping is actually good for dogs. You'll see your dog chasing, jumping and chomping to get at those bubbles. And that all adds up to some great exercise - so encourage your dog to run after those bubbles and try to pop each and every last one of them! If you're not the bubble-blowing type, that's okay too. Luckily there are plenty of bubble blowers designed especially for dogs. There are dog bubble machines that blow giant bubbles or bubble shooters that blow mini bubbles, and lots of fun bubble scents like bacon or chicken.
Dog toy manufacturers are catching on to the fact that, plain and simple, dogs love bubbles and just can't seem to get enough of them. So dog owners can look forwards to lots of new and interesting dog bubble machines, blowers, shooters, guns all designed to blow scented bubbles to your dog - and giving him or her some great exercise at the same time!
