Bought this due to our new 8Week old Pup being extremely brilliant and bored of normal toys and chews quickly. I started with level 1 because I had her try a sniffle mat and she could care less it was not stimulating enough for her. I thought it was just because it was “too hard” but dang I was wrong, she figured this one out in 10 SECONDS! After pulling all the tubes out she is Mentally Drained and Finally passed out ( THIS in general is a HUGE FRICKEN WIN for us because she is the most RESTLESS puppy I have ever seen or owned and physical exercise is not enough to get her to sleep without screaming for 20minutes to an 1hr, and we can not even crate her for the life of us and let her cry it out because we live in a townhome). With this giving her the Mental stimulation she needs she has been in her crate for 1.5 hours and has not even made a peep!! From Delirious exhausted Dog mom I am saying THANK YOU and recommend this to everyone especially if you are renting and want to ensure you are establishing positive crate training without the worry of noise complaints or worse eviction! Picture showing it being Filled up again for when she wakes up and after potty time!
My dogs mastered this one right away, the first time they have used a toy like this. The little one would hide the pieces and my little larger one would move the pieces away and then go back and eat the treat. It was fun watching them but I have to keep my eyes on them so I know where the put the pieces. LOL
It took our oldest dog awhile to figure out she had to lift the little parts up instead of just knocking it over with her paws. Once she figured it out she flies through this. It’s more challenging for our middle dog. Sturdy little pieces cause she tries to run off and chew them lol. Great way to add a little mental stimulation to feeding time!
Purchased for 6 Mo Lab. Mastered in 3 tries. He still likes to find the treats but definitely ready for more challenges. Probably would not purchase again. Sturdy and high quality materials though if needing a starter puzzle.
My dog really loves this game! I wanted to start with a Level 1 game (this being her first) so she wouldnt feel frustrated figuring it out. She got the hang of it only after a couple of tries. She loves sniffing out which pegs have the treats and has mastered the game. I would highly recommend for any dog to alleviate boredom, and stimulate their senses and mind.
It will entertain your dog for hours. very good toy. would recommendd
I have a senior JRT, and he gets very bored during the day. I thought a toy like this would light up his life and give him something to do. It took all of 1 minute for him to figure out the pieces are easy to knock over and get treats out of. For me, filling the pieces with treats was a pain, and then the cylinders roll away under the furniture once he gets into them. It's a lot of hassle, and not a lot of entertainment for either the dog, or I.
