This is a nice game for our dogs... with a little modification. Our rescues did not have great dental care before we got them. Our smaller dog has no teeth left and our bigger fellow has 4 teeth. So it is almost impossible for them to remove the cap that hid the treats. I modified them by sanding the bottoms to about a 45 degree angle so a little tap would get them moving out of position.

my dog loved the beginner puzzles so i decided to go up a level and get this one. he LOVES it. i made it too easy the first time he did it until i saw how if you position some of the flaps a certain way it can stop other ones from opening and vice versa. i love how you can drop pieces of kibble in the sliders so they have to be moved twice to get the treats. super high quality too!
This is my puppy's first puzzle. I went all in on the hardest setting and it took her less than 10 minutes to work it out. I'd rate it lower because it was too easy but she kept going back to it and playing with the sliders. She really enjoys sliding each one back and forth with her nose or paw. She's not sniffing for food, just examining the sliding function. She went back three or four times and played for a while without snacks over the course of an hour. I'll update if it doesn't hold her attention past day one, but thus far I'm content that she's enjoying it. I think it's more to slow her down then to actually provide a challenge.
This has survived through two foster dogs that would destroy anything they could with their teeth, and a dog that I have now adopted that loves to slam it with her paws when it's taking her too long. It's not too hard to keep clean, either, and the dogs tend to figure it out but it still gives them a challenge when they've nailed it. If you're looking for a good brain game, this is it. It is surprisingly durable and an all around great purchase.
Our doxie absolutely loves this. She mastered it in a matter of minutes. Openings are just the right size for her kibble. I like it because there are no loose parts. She likes to chew on things she shouldn't and this toy is perfect for her. Would highly recommend.
Our dog LOVES this. She was having stomach issues and we were trying to get her to transition into her new dog food. This worked great! She continues to eat part of her food everyday from the puzzle game and has come to expect it!
With an active pup, it's important to challenge them mentally. Feeding time is a great option to keep them 'working' for their reward/meal. This Outward Hound brick puzzle is a great product to hide treats and portions of the meal. It stimulates a pets natural curiosity and helps keep them mentally sharp. I would highly recommend this product without hesitation!
My corgi loves doing this puzzle! Great enrichment for him, we started putting a few pieces of his food in with treats and he loves it. This isn't super difficult or advanced.
As soon as the toy came out of the box, put a treat in and dog immediately broke the flipper off in under 5 seconds.
This item was supposed to be a hard puzzle and a challenge. My dog bested it in less than 1 minute. Not worth the money. I threw it away the first day. Sorry I wasted mine! And she was only 4 month old!
