Description

Who says learning can't be fun? With the Dog Smart Interactive Dog Toy, you can stimulate your pup's brain and have a blast at the same time! This entry-level dog puzzle challenges your dog to uncover treats through problem-solving, while also helping them to develop new learning techniques. You can even switch it up! The bones in this puzzle toy can be arranged to be flush with the board or elevated for different challenge levels. When the bones are flat against the board, your dog will learn to paw and nuzzle at the pieces differently than when the bones are elevated and more easily removable. Plus, it's also paw-fect for treating and feeding your dog’s dry kibble!

Key Benefits
  • Stimulate your pup's brain and have fun with him at the same time.
  • Entry-level dog puzzle challenges your dog to uncover treats through problem-solving.
  • Help him to develop new learning techniques by switching the board to different difficulty levels.
  • Arrange the bones to be flat against the board or elevated for different challenge levels.
  • Excellent for training, plus great for feeding your pup his dry kibble at dinner.

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.

How to Play: Place treats or kibble in compartments of base. Cover treat compartments with bones. The more compartments that are covered, the harder the game will be. Let the games begin! Show your dog where the treats are and watch them find the tasty reward! Dogs are smarter than you think. Sometimes we just need to teach them! Leave some compartments uncovered for your dog to gain interest.

Easy to Clean: To wash your dog’s Dog Smart, simply remove all treats/kibble and hand wash with warm soapy water, rinse clean and dry. Fill again for more fun!

    Good starter for puzzle toys!

    By on

    My 9 year old lab/collie, Kaiser gets bored so easy and tends to get underfoot following me around while I'm doing housework. He does it to let me know he is bored, so I will play with him. I looked into the collie side of his breed and found that puzzle toys could be helpful so I found this one that is meant for getting them into it. At first he didnt understand why we were hiding his precious treats in a contraption. But after we showed him that the pieces come out to reveal his treats he got interested. He loves it! I'm looking to getting him an intermediate one next, because he is getting a little too good at getting the treats out now.

    Interactive Dog Toy

    By on

    My dogs have fun with interactive toys but this one didn't hold their attention - the pieces don't have much to grab onto and they fit somewhat too snuggly so nose pushing didn't work as well either. I would definitely add a string to the pieces to provide the dogs with something to grab onto.

    Nice Concept But Too Easy

    By on

    This puzzle is a nice concept, and may work well for a small breed dog. My GSD figured out where the food was hidden and how to lift the covers off in less than 15 seconds. Don't get me wrong, he enjoys the activity, but it doesn't keep his mind working long enough.

    My dog loves this

    By on

    I wanted to get something for my dog since she is home alone all day that would stimulate her brain, even if just for a few minutes. This works great and after a few tries she has this down. It's great that you can make this easier or more difficult.

    Parts are easy to chew

    By on

    My dog was more interested in chewing up the plastic bone pieces than the treats underneath them. Would probably be better for adult dogs or dogs who aren't big chewers.

    Perfect Beginning Puzzle

    By on

    Domino loves this puzzle and it helped him build confidence. The only catch? He mastered it quickly. We're looking for a new, more challenging puzzle, but will keep this in the rotation.

    Fun but easy

    By on

    My 10-month-old boxer loves scent work so I’d been looking for a puzzle to get her. She loves the process of finding all the treats but she figured it out in under a minute the first time and now that she knows how it works she’ll sometimes get lazy or overly excited (not sure which) and fling the entire puzzle so the bones and treats go flying everywhere. Holding it down with my hand helps but occasionally I get scratched by a wayward paw. I tried putting it on a chair as the instructions suggest but she’ll just push the whole thing to the floor. She gets so excited when I pull this out so I know she enjoys it, but I think she might need something more challenging.

I still like this one and for less excitable pups I think it’s probably perfect. … more

    Perfect to keep your dog busy

    By on

    We have a very active foster girl and I wanted something to keep her busy indoors. Riley loved it and it was fun to see her picking out the right places where the treats were hidden. It obviously requires you to place treats and play with them.

    Not challenging for my beagle

    By on Top 1000 Contributor

    I bought a level one toy because I wasnt sure about my ability to train my beagle how to play. He had it figured out and finished with it by the time I read the first paragraph.
