Beads as enrichment.
« on: October 12, 2014, 10:25:08 AM »

Hi everyone. Only me again. Smokey seems to love playing with my bracelet which has beads on it he spends ages trying to get the beads. Are they safe to use as enrichment and if yes what do I put them on to stop him from pulling them off.
Thank you.xxxx

Ozzy's a sucker for beads too, luckily I use them in my job so the ones I have found best are the pony beads, lots of different colours for interest.  I thread a few onto a piece of nylon cord tyeing plenty of knots (they all seem to like to undo knots) - make sure its not long enough that it could get tangled around his neck.

In wilkinsons they do a pot of wooden beads that are different colours and shapes. They're big beads so can't be swallowed. That's what i use for Jack x
