    Challenging Puzzle

    By AKEmma on May 22, 2021

    I bought this puzzle for our cur-pointer mix. She is very smart and can usually finish these puzzles in less than 5 minutes. Finally, a puzzle that lasts longer! It took my dog almost 20 minutes just to work through the outside edge. The puzzle is sturdy, but as my dog became frustrated with how long I bought this puzzle for our cur-pointer mix. She is very smart and can usually finish these puzzles in less than 5 minutes. Finally, a puzzle that lasts longer! It took my dog almost 20 minutes just to work through the outside edge. The puzzle is sturdy, but as my dog became frustrated with how long it was taking, she figured out how to pop the outside sliding pieces off to get the treats. I did not try the inside circle yet. Moving pieces in and out of the circle with her foot will be challenging for my dog. She prefers to use her mouth when opening puzzles, so it will take some coaching before she can advance to the circle level. Overall a this is a good product. To make it better, I would add little handles to the center pieces for dogs to move with their mouths. … more

    Didn't work for our dog

    By LizzySD on Dec 12, 2021

    Our dog was very excited about this puzzle, but in less than a day, figured out he could pull out the lime green squares with his mouth to get the treats. Instead of figuring out how to move the pieces, he just pulled out multiple pieces with his mouth. Also, it needs to have a weighted bottom or suction Our dog was very excited about this puzzle, but in less than a day, figured out he could pull out the lime green squares with his mouth to get the treats.

    Meh. Try something else

    My dog wants to eat this toy. Or at least chew on it. She pulls the sliding pieces off and munches on those rather than the treats underneath

    My dog "solved" this with brute force due to a design flaw.

    By on

    My 40 lb Border Collie Lab mix used her nose to push the orange pieces underneath the green disc in the middle, exposing the treats underneath and lodging the orange bit under the disc. That's not how it's supposed to work. It was a pain to get them back out. The sliding squares around the edge function fine, but I think most dogs could figure that "puzzle" out very quickly. Unfortunately we only used it a few times before it became pointless -- when your dog only takes 45 seconds to get all the treats out of a puzzle, you might as well just hand them the treats. Despite the design flaw with the orange parts, the materials are pretty durable and withstood a lot of scratching the first 1-2 times My 40 lb Border Collie Lab mix used her nose to push the orange pieces underneath the green disc in the middle, exposing the treats underneath and lodging the orange bit under the disc.

Cricket also is a highly curious problem solver with a lot of paw dexterity; other dogs might take longer to paw the squares and circles around. … more

    Not for super chewing pups

    I didn’t realize with this design how easily the little squares came out of this puzzle. She was also able to move the central square completely and the little orange pieces.

    A Bit of Both

    The outside is super easy for my pupper but the middle has him stumped. I wish it was a little heavier because he slams it around a LOT which is super noisy

    Multi puzzle Dog Toy

    By on

    This seemed like a good idea, our seemingly especially clever English springer spaniel likes to learn new things. I was excited to get it, we had two other less challenging Outward Hound puzzles which she mastered quickly and without damage. But this one was hardly challenging. I filled the toy with some kibble and turned on iPhone video to see how long it would take her to get the prizes. It took her 27 seconds to figure out the tiles could be popped out to reach the kibble, no need to slide anything. If I did not take it away from her, she would have finished the kibble and then gone on to chew up the green tiles. I hope others have more luck with it.

    Lots of fun!

    By on

    This item is huge! Which I love, lots of places to hide treats or kibble. The green pieces are easy to move, so my german shepherd/husky mix finds the treats at a decent speed. It takes her a while to figure out how to work it out to get to them though. The orange circles are a lot more harder for her to figure out. She gets frustrated quick and stratus to scratch and bite at it and she ended up shoving 2 underneath, but it wasn’t too hard to take them out. Somedays she understands how to get to the treats, others not so much. Overall, amazing puzzle. Keeps my girl busy, just keep a close eye if your dog gets frustrated like my dog, they can possibly break it if they are too rough.
