One of the puzzles is pulling the jar lid off. I put a smelly treat. I think it was cheese in it and she ate the cheese, but smelt the cheese on the lid and decided to start chewing the lid and swallowing pieces of plastic. Luckily she puked up the chunks of plastic later on in the day, but I didn’t even know that she ate some of it until I found the lid. It’s a fun toy but you just have to monitor your dog.
My Chow/Australian Shepherd is still confounded with this toy, he can get two of the boxes open but the other two he still has trouble with and that's fine by me! I can totally see how some peoples dogs may figure out the puzzles quickly but our dog hasn't been able to get them all with ease yet. If you're thinking of purchasing this for your dog, keep in mind how smart they are. A smarter dog may figure this out quickly. Otherwise it's a great toy and very solid so you don't have to worry about it breaking.
I have 4 dogs, 2 border collie/ McNab and 2 chi , chi mix. I bought this for my border collie puppy as he is the most active dog I’ve had ad seen. His mom was too but not like this. I need things to keep his mind are you busy. Once I started show him my Chi’s wanted in on the action as well. Then his mom saw him getting treats and had to have one as well. I am so happy with this spontaneous purchase I’m about ready to do a happy dance. I will be buying more toys like this
This is her favorite puzzle. She has four others, but this one seems to match her well and it does not take too long to figure out. It took her a while to learn it, but she still loves it after doing it many times. She goes straight for the drawer as she likes puzzles where she has to open something with a string.
Bertie seemed bored of late always coming to me for attention. I wanted something for him that would require he work a bit cuz we all need to do some work. This is enough of a challenge for him and enough to give me some time to get my work done. Rather than come right back to me, he seems satisfied and moves on to things in his own. Worked so well , I bought the next in this set (lol that is a bit more challenging). Hope the company makes more.
I am on auto shipments, which I love. It is easy to add or delete items. If ship date needs changed...that is easy too. So convenient. No more carrying 30 lb. Bags through parking lots. Highly recommend.
Although this could be a great toy, it unfortunately is designed in such a way that the lids can easily get chewed on - and become inoperable. That is exactly what happened the third time I used it with my 10-month-old Belgian Shepherd. Even then, I would have rated this toy much higher if it was possible to buy replacement lids - but, surprise surprise, that's not possible.
I'd noticed my boy enjoys problem solving. This poker box was the missing piece of the puzzle. Two of the drawers were simple enough for him that it kept him wanting to work on the other two. He's getting better and better. Maybe level 3 is next...
Four month old puppy finished this puzzle in three minutes. Plan on using it at meal times for extra simulation. No puzzle board is indestructible so I wouldnt suggest leaving this board with dog unattended.
I like the treat boxes. It's like magic when the treats keep on appearing inside!
