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!

  • No Training Instruction

    By on

    This toy is sturdy however it came with no training instructions so we've been trying to teach our dog how to operate the toy step by step on our own. He fully understands how to use the sliders, although it seems very difficult for a dog to pull out the white clips. It would be much better if they weren't locked into place so that way when he pulls it out it should slide all the way out and he would understand that he completed that step. Instead it only slides out about an inch and he doesn't understand that he's opened it so he continues to pull, and pull, and pull. Usually either gets frustrated, picks it up and drags it somewhere else, or breaks the toy. There are better toys, don't waste This toy is sturdy however it came with no training instructions so we've been trying to teach our dog how to operate the toy step by step on our own.

    I bought this for my 2 poodles, Ruby and Rex, and schnauzer, Heidi. The dogs really enjoy treat time so I got this as a way for them to work at and stimulate them in the mornings. This is a level 3 puzzle for the dogs, I like the concept but we have not gotten this far yet but the way the puddle are going through the puzzles it will not be long.

  • Nice addition for mental stimulus

    By on

    My dog TJ doesn't go to daycare anymore (too expensive for me right now) but he needs social interaction or some kind of mental stimulation other than our walks. I thought this might be a good thing to add to his day and put his dinner or breakfast in here off and on. At first, he didn't know how to do it, he pawed at it but didn't understand to move the pieces. I showed him how to move them and what was under each one. Before I knew it, he was sniffing like crazy and sliding the pieces by himself. The only negative I have is that he learned it so quickly I don't know how much it stimulates his brain anymore. So, I only do it twice a week.

  • Tricky Puzzle

    By on

    I love all of the Nina Ottosson puzzle and think it’s so fun watching my dog figure these out. The locks on this one are a real challenge for her - I started by putting a bit of peanut butter on them to get her interested.

  • Love These Puzzles

    By on

    Really like the outward hound brand line. This toy is made well in my opinion. Looks like it's made to 'break' or come apart and goes back together very easily after my pup has torn it all apart. Easy to clean. The puzzles are engaging to my ACD. Level of difficulty for her is just hard enough to make her work but she still takes about 5-10 minutes to get all the treats out. I switch puzzle toys throughout the week so she doesn't get bored. Will buy other puzzles of its kind in the future.

  • choking concern

    By on

    Our lab puppy managed to extract one of the white plastic handles on the perimeter of the puzzle. He chewed on it until my husband managed to get it out of his mouth. I don't think that I have ever written a review before, but we have concerns for future purchasers' of this product. We threw out the puzzle the day it arrived.

  • Not for all dogs

    By on

    I have dog friends that have a hard time with this toy, which is why I bought it. However, my pup is very food motivated and very smart. Took her 20 minutes the 1st time, 12 the 2nd, with all keys locked.

  • Gets Stuck Easily.

    By on

    Nice idea but, moves too much for my pup to get a grip. The small doors get stuck on mine very easily. Better for a small pet.

    The game is so cool kept my dog occupied for at least bbn 10 minutes and could figure it out. Except for pulling on the white handles those are hard still.
