Description

Who says learning can't be fun? With the Dog Twister Plastic Interactive Dog Toy, you can stimulate your pup's brain and have a blast at the same time! This unique toy is a challenging and fun game for you and your active dog. He has to look for treats by moving one block after another in different circles. Increase the degree of difficulty by locking the blocks with bone-shaped pegs, which are placed in the hollows all around the up-side of the game. He has to learn to unplug the blocks by lifting the pegs one by one in order to be able to move the blocks and then find the treats. He'll love the reward of a job well done, and you'll love watching him put on his doggy thinking cap!

Key Benefits
  • Great for dogs looking for a challenge when it comes to treat-dispensing dog games and toys.
  • Combines both challenging mental stimulation and independent play to maximize your dog’s playtime.
  • Treat compartments on this dog game can hold your dog’s dry kibble to make mealtime more exciting!
  • Enhances your relationship with your dog with this fun, interactive game.
  • Easy to clean: simply remove all treats/kibble and handwash with warm soapy water.

Every dog plays differently and, since not all toys are created equal, it’s always best to keep a close watch on your pup in case things get ruff. Supervised play will help toys last longer and most importantly keep your pal safe. No dog toy is truly indestructible, so always remove the toy from playtime if pieces begin to break off.

Caution: Do not let the dog chew or bite the toy, only play with it together with your dog, do not leave the dog unattended, the dog must not play with or chew the blocks. Put away when the game is over. Designed for dogs, it is not a toy for a child.

Instructions

HOW TO PLAY: Pull handles out to unlocked position to slide paw panels. Place treats or kibble in compartments. Line up sliding paw panels and lock them in place by pushing handles in. Let the games begin! Place game on floor and encourage your pet to seek treats. Dogs are smarter than you think. Sometimes we just need to teach them! Leave handles in the unlocked position and offset paw panels so your dog can smell and access treats easier.

FROZEN PUZZLE: Mix some canned/wet dog food or raw food with water, pour some of the mixture in the hollows, or place a small piece of sausage or a tasty treat in each of the hollows, pour a little water, put the game in the freezer and let it set. Perfect for energetic dogs, hot weather, or just extended fun.

EASY TO CLEAN: To wash your dog’s Dog Twister, simply remove all treats/kibble and hand wash with warm soapy water, rinse clean and dry. Fill again for more fun!

    Easily ripped apart, too difficult

    By on

    I tried to ease my dog into this toy, but she just gets frustrated with it so fast and starts pawing at it, the little blue parts come off pretty easily and seems not well made. The dog has to "unlock" the sliding blue parts by pulling the white parts out, so it's very difficult. I thought my dog needed a challenge but this is almost impossible it seems. Absolutely would be a toy that a dog needs supervision with.

    4 month old pup figured it out

    By on

    Loved the idea. Read reviews that it was challenging. Theoretically it is. In practice, not so much. We have a 4 month old pup, and she is quite smart. Thought this would be engaging. So, yes she couldn't pull out the white handles, but circumvented it by picking up the toy and dropping it continuously. This loosened the locks in place enough that she could wiggle the cover to the side and reach the food. Also on the underside are 4 black rubber scratch protectors, for the floor. She lifted those right out and started eating them. Thankfully we noticed and removed them.

    Difficult Puzzle

    By on Top 250 Contributor

    This puzzle is extremely difficult - which is great! Our pups have very small mouths so we tied strings around the handles in order for them to pull them.

    Level is difficult.

    By on

    This would have been great had the dogs needed to just step on the white tabs and the various containers would open, but dogs need to pull the tabs out to get the treats. We just opened all of the tabs and they needed to learn to move the turquoise pieces to the side to get to the treats. It is still engaging their problem solving and rewards. We like it.

    Not for a heavy chewer

    By on

    My dog decided within 15 minutes it was easier to rip the lids off to get to the treats. Had to throw away.

    Big dogs can circumvent

    By on

    A Level 2 Nina Ottoson puzzle was too easily completed by my 70 pound mutt so I decided to try a Level 3. He didn't master pulling out the handles but quickly figured out that he could pop the tray covers off to reach the treats. They are easily reattached but I think will break with repeated popping. I will not be purchasing anymore of these puzzles.

    Keeping her busy!

    By on

    Great puzzle. I was worried that she would figure it out quickly and lose interest but she loves it.

    breaks easily

    By on

    My dog broke it within 10 minutes. He pulled the lock to get to the treat and the lock came right out.

    Poor Design

    By on

    I have several activities boards and I was looking for something a little harder since my dog loves them and flies through them quickly. This one was not a hit. The handles are to be pulled out first so the doors can slide over to reveal the treat. Unfortunately the doors come up slightly without having to pull out the handle. So my dog thought she had to pull up harder. She got some of them, but became frustrated after several attempts even with coaching, etc. I also found the mechanics made it difficult to fill. Not a hit.

    Good puzzle

    By on

    My cats (Singapuras) are extremely intelligent and need to be mentally and physically challenged to keep them entertained. This one was a challenge at first but they quickly got the hang of sliding the sections to expose the treats.
