Developed to engage natural canine behaviours
After conducting in-depth research on canine behaviour, Flevo Pets has developed a product tailored to meet their needs. This includes factors like breed size, bite angles, and engineering a cone shape that will provide a smooth and challenging experience. As a result, the Bowly effortlessly glides away whenever the dog attempts to grab it.
Combining physical exercise with mental stimulation is crucial for a dog’s well-being. Physical exercise keeps their bodies healthy, prevents obesity, and releases endorphins that improve mood and reduces stress levels. Mental stimulation keeps their minds active and engaged.
“Our research focused on delving into the basic elements of our dogs’ natural instincts and behaviour. This allows us to thoroughly understand what brings real happiness and satisfaction to dogs and serves as a foundation for designing the ultimate game for them. By fulfilling those instincts, Bowly helps fight boredom, anxiety, and destructive behaviour.” – Flevo Pets
Unleash your dog’s full potential with three key drivers, food, play and prey
Engaging in physical and mental activities with dogs and offering them a delicious treat helps keep them entertained. This prevents them from becoming bored and exhibiting negative behaviours. You can keep your dog happy, healthy, and engaged by offering regular exercise and intellectual stimuli.
Food and treats are prime motivators for dogs
Food keeps dogs engaged and mentally stimulated as they work to figure out how to get to the tasty reward. There are numerous advantages to incorporating food into dog toys. It promotes physical and cognitive activity, heightens their sense of smell, and satisfies natural canine instincts while providing a fun and satisfying playtime.
Play helps keep your dog active
Engaging in play is essential for dogs as it provides them with physical activity, promoting their overall well-being and vitality. Furthermore, playtime stimulates their cognitive abilities and encourages them to explore, reducing boredom, stress, and anxiety.
The design of Bowly continuously challenges your dog and improves their coordination, agility, problem-solving, and cognitive skills.
Games encourage dogs to express their natural instincts
Prey drive is a natural behaviour for dogs that is deeply rooted in their evolutionary history. Activities and toys that engage this inherent canine prey drive allow dogs to express natural behaviour and provides mental enrichment. Allowing dogs to express their prey drive productively helps to prevent boredom, anxiety, and destructive behaviour. By embracing and honouring this instinct, we can provide our furry friends with a more balanced and fulfilled life.
Bowly provides dogs with physical and mental enrichment
Combining physical and mental activity provides a more enriching experience for dogs, helping to prevent boredom and destructive behaviour. You can keep your dog happy, healthy, and engaged by offering regular exercise and mental stimulation opportunities.

The importance of playtime for dogs
Not only does playtime benefit dogs physically and mentally, but it also strengthens the bond between dogs and their owners. Engaging in interactive games and activities creates a sense of trust and companionship, as dogs learn to rely on their owners for fun and stimulation. This shared experience fosters a deeper connection and understanding between humans and their canine companions.
Moreover, playtime offers an opportunity for dogs to socialize and interact with other dogs. Whether it’s a game of fetch at the park or a playdate with furry friends, these social interactions are crucial for a dog’s social development. They learn important social cues, such as appropriate play behaviour and communication, which can enhance their overall social skills and confidence.
In addition to the physical and social benefits, playtime also serves as a form of mental exercise for dogs. Puzzle toys, for example, challenge their problem-solving abilities and keep their minds sharp. These toys often require dogs to figure out how to retrieve a treat or solve a puzzle, stimulating their cognitive functions and preventing cognitive decline.
It’s important to note that playtime should be tailored to each individual dog’s needs and preferences. Some dogs may prefer a game of tug-of-war, while others may enjoy chasing a ball. Understanding and catering to their unique preferences ensures that playtime remains enjoyable and fulfilling for both dogs and their owners.
Incorporating playtime into a dog’s daily routine is important for their overall well-being. It provides them with physical exercise, mental stimulation, socialisation opportunities, and strengthens the bond between dogs and their owners. So, let’s grab a toy, and let the games begin!
