    Fun for both of us

    By Sara on Apr 11, 2021

    Watching my 12 week old learn this puzzle has been fun. At first I didn’t think she would be able to do it, she chewed the pegs instead of lifting them up. Then she lifted them, but couldn’t figure out how to put them down. Then she ran away with each peg leaving the the puzzle behind entirely and I had to retrieve the peg myself to get her to resume the puzzle. It took my puppy several days to start doing the puzzle “correctly” but it is now a delight watching her pick up the peg, place it down, find her treat, then move on to the next. It was remarkable how much better she did each day. This puzzle is durable enough for chewers but definitely do not leave a dog unattended with this because Watching my 12 week old learn this puzzle has been fun.

    Took a few attempts to figure out but worth it!

    By Joanna on Mar 24, 2021

    Initially, this puzzle did not seem to be the right fit for my dog due to his dental issues (cannot grasp onto objects) and he's quite gentle. I set it aside for a while and decided to give it another shot. With extra encouragement, a higher value treat and some re-modification, he was able to engage with this puzzle the intended way! I'd set the cylinders upside down so it's easier to knock over and then when he was used to that, I'd tilt them a little bit on the right side up and finally, in its normal position. My small, toothless dog is a pro at this now! It's not difficult to clean and I like the beige color way.

    Senior, mostly toothless chihuahua loves it!

    By RoseLeigh on Mar 16, 2021

    My little 7lb chihuahua mix isn’t usually into playing but I try to encourage her, especially since she’s not getting as much activity/stimulation due to the pandemic. She’s given up pretty quickly in the past if something seems too hard, but this was perfect! I did a trial run with just two smelly soft treats at first, and had one of the cylinders slightly ajar to make it even easier. She was able to figure out how to remove the cylinders with her mouth, even though she only has a few teeth left. She seemed to really enjoy it—it was enough of a challenge to be interesting but not so hard she gave up. I’m excited to have found something that works for her!

    Great toy for dogs

    By Cathy on Feb 24, 2021

    My Piper loved this toy, BUT she figured out how to find the treats after about 10 total minutes of playing with it. She does love removing the tubes to get to the treats, but it isn’t going to work as a boredom buster for us. Another positive, this toy did prove to us that our dog really is super smart - she is just a stubborn, stubborn coonhound haha. I would give the toy 5 stars as she does enjoy it, but I am taking one away as it doesn’t work as long as I had hoped.

    Perfect Busy Toy

    By BinkTam on Mar 22, 2021

    Great busy toy for our 4month old pup. She had fun turning the cubes over and getting her kibble or Cheerioes. She Went thru it so quick I was wondering if I should have gotten the next level toy, but we enjoy watching her play with it. So far we don't see any bite marks on it and she loves to chew on things. This seems to be pretty durable.

    Nicely made

    By gardener on Feb 20, 2021

    This is a well made game - the bits are thick enough that I think it will stand up over time. My sweet boy (goldendoodle) is a bit too gentle, though. He knows the treats are there, and he pushes at the cylinders, but he won't pick them up yet. I need to slightly tip them so he can push them over. (He doesn't push open doors, either - even if they are ajar. I tell myself he is being super polite)

    Too simple for a smart dog...

    By Bill on Jan 14, 2021

    My 7-month old Corgi puppy figured this out in about a minute and was bored with it after that. He played with it as there was food in it - Corgis are super food-driven, but it was way too easy. If the pegs were harder to get out, he might have still worked with it, but he would just knock them over with his paw and eat the treat if there was one there. The other part that he really liked was pulling the rubber feet out of the bottom and chewing on them. They came out much too easily and were the size of his treats, so he just chewed them up. I ended up returning this item. Of course Chewy was super understanding and customer-driven and processed a return right away.

    Too easy for 6 month golden retriever

    By Jeff on Jan 26, 2021

    The product seems to be of decent quality. It only kept our dog entertained for about a minute since she figured out how to move the pegs and get the treats immediately. Depending on your breed, you may want to skip straight to a level 2 or level 3 game.

    Challenging Puzzle!

    By steph on Dec 19, 2020

    This is advertised as level one, but oh golly my dog has a hard time figuring it. It is definitely a steep learning curve for some dogs, but if you're willing to be patient with your dog I am sure it will work out. As for the quality, it's well made and you can feel it. Overall, it's an okay addition to my dog's collection and I'll continue working with him to figure it out! If you'd like to try it, I'd suggest you do!

    Keeps my pups thinking and busy

    By Kimber on Jan 28, 2021

    My pups all LOVE this puzzle toy. Each day I put their supplement chews in here as well as some kibble and let them each have a turn. Material is solid and easy to clean off!
