We noticed our senior dog was having some critical thinking issues. For example, he walks as straight as the crow flies, totally ignoring what might be in his path to get to his destination. So, we thought he needed a brain boost! We started with a treat releasing flip toy. He quickly learned that toy and is now bored with it. We decided to get him something for more brain stimulation, which resulted in the purchase of this "poker box" game. All A's for this one! Very durable, challenging, and many different configurations can be used to defeat boredom. He learned how to get the treats quickly, but we are working on consistency without prompting. Once he accomplishes this, we will change the box configuration. It has helped him to pay more attention....even walking around barriers v. stopping at the barriers claiming helplessness. He ain't the sharpest tool in the shed, but we are working on it with slight progress every day! The only drawback is he needs to be watched while using it due to removable pieces.
My 1 year old boxer enjoyed this puzzle. She has several puzzles so she is fairly familiar with the different mechanisms. I like it for the size, ability to clean and change up the order of the boxes. I would recommend supervising your dog as they can take the lids off and chew on them.
Such a waste of money. My 3 month old Great Dane figured it out in less than 3 minutes. She did enjoy running off with the parts and chewing on them. Very disappointed with this "puzzle" toy.
This is a well-built, intriguing amusement for an intelligent pup.
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.
