What is the level of difficulty?
Answer by ChewyJan 14, 2019
This is ideal for dogs experienced with more advanced puzzle toys. Due to the unique design, the cones cannot be knocked over and must be lifted straight up to be removed for an added challenge. Vary the number and placement of treats to increase the level of difficulty.

Do they sell replacement pieces? My pups chewed up the orange cones!

not for heavy chewers

My dog chewed the cones so they don’t fit in holes anymore.

Great toy for curious dogs!

Our puggle LOVES this new toy! She searches for each piece of food and is so happy to find each and every one! Great puzzle toy for curious dogs!

TRIXIE chess activity strategy game dog toy is a good buy.

The toy is well-made and comes with detailed instructions on how best to have your dog use it. Our four-year old Jack Russell is definitely stimulated by it and fairly quickly caught on as to how to play the game; in fact, it could have been even a little more challenging.

Big disappointment

Really disappointed in this toy. I was looking for more level 3 toys to challenge my two dogs, but this is not a level 3 despite being labeled one. Its way too easy. There are lots of compartments to hide food or treats but only two of the cone things. So you end up with a lot of open compartments and the food/treats aren't even hidden. Maybe if you have extra cones from another Trixie toy you can make this harder. Otherwise, its somewhere between a level 1 and 2 toy. Also, this toy is really small. It's fine for my little guy, but difficult for my Dobie to retrieve food/treats from the compartments.

Not a big fan

I bought two Trixie puzzles for our new puppy. The other one we love! This one? Not so much. It just seems really pointless. There are two basic activities: one activity the dog simply knocks the post out of place and slides the little thing over and there’s a treat. Then there is another activity where the dog has to slide these thin drawers out to get the treats and it’s just such a different level of difficulty that it doesn’t really make sense. On the one hand, the one activity is way too easy and on the other hand, the other activity is too hard! The plastic seems good, however, and even though my pup chews on the posts, it doesn’t seem to damage them too badly. I wish I had passed on this puzzle and gone with a different one.

My dogs love this

This is a great way to feed a meal; each of the upright pieces can be filled with kibble. It gives the dog something to think about while he's eating. Please don't leave the dog unsupervised,; he may decide to chew on the upright pieces as soon as he empties them

Not my favorite.

I use interactive toys like this with my Sphynx cats, who are incredibly smart. They love the treat puzzles. Their favorite is a set of boxes that need to be opened in different ways. This one, however, didn’t appeal to them. I think maybe bc it’s mostly by sliding mechanism? It’s not really a “chess” activity IMO.

Good entertainment but not super challenging

I bought this puzzle for my very smart, very food-motivated vizsla, hoping it would be challenging. I like that you can mix up the configuration of the cones and the sliding pieces. The description says that the cones cannot be knocked over and must be pulled straight up to be released. That is not true. My dog can very easily knock them out with her nose. She can find the treats in a few minutes or less. It is very sturdy and seems like it will hold up well even though she paws at it a lot. I would say this toy does require supervision unless your dog is very gentle with it. Mine will just start scratching at it unless I stop her. My ridgeback is much slower with it and gentle. He is not quite as smart though.

Sophie Loves Her Puzzle

This is my Wheaten Terrier's favorite toy! There is some difficulty to the toy, and it is so funny to watch her pull the stoppers out. Those are the easy ones. Then she has to slide the pieces to get the other treats out.
