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!

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Challenging Puzzle

    By on

    This one is a good challenge for our dog, who is a little over a year. Eventually though, she destroyed the white locking mechanisms and then they are really hard to put back as a result, but a good challenge and she would take a break and go back laster

    They Mean DIFFICULT

    By on

    When the manufacturer says this one is difficult for your dog, they are right. The white handles are difficult for even humans to pull out. Not nearly as fun for our dog as the other one:(

    Above Average Concept, Below Average Construction

    By on

    I really like the idea of this interactive toy. It offers a unique challenge that I applaud. But.... it is not very well constructed. The white stoppers are too loose and won't stay pulled out if bumped. And, the most unfortunate part... an over-zealous pup can easily dislodge the pie shaped pieces while the white stoppers are in. I'd really love to see this game with a much better construction.

    Not For My Dog

    By on

    This just came in the mail today and I was very excited to try it out and see how my dog liked it. Well, he liked it a lot - he liked it so much that he just started pulling the white pieces out and pulled several blue doors off. The pieces are easily reattached and my dog definitely enjoyed it, but I do not foresee it lasting very long.

    Great Puzzle

    By on

    My dog Lillie works this one with difficulty, I love it because she needs to work her brain. But I know she is going to master it soon! She has only used it twice.

    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.
