Channel your dog’s playful and intelligent side with the Trixie Mad Scientist Turn Around Interactive Dog Toy. Designed for the intermediate canine gamers, this toy works by placing treats inside any of the three beakers, and then covering with the lid with holes. The treat will be released once your dog figures out how to flip the beakers and balance them upside down—a tasty challenge he will be happy to take on! There’s two sets of lids that you can mix and match for varying levels of difficulty, and the non-slip rubber feet keeps the game in place as your dog explores. It even includes an instructional booklet with tips and tricks for challenging and training dogs of all ages.

  • Great To Watch Their Brain Work!

    By on Top 250 Contributor

    I really enjoy giving this particular toy to my dogs at meal time. It's really interesting to watch your dogs' brain work to solve a problem. My only complaint about this toy is the green stand. You see, mine (others may be different though, because I haven't seen this complaint in other reviews) doesn't secure well to the base. The four legs of the green stand just kind of sit in the holes in the base and it is very easy for my dogs to knock over. Luckily, my two females are very gentle. My male however, he flips the whole thing over and drags it around until food falls out.

  • My Aussie's favorite way to eat.

    By on

    My 40lb Aussie loved figuring out this toy. We now give him his kibble meals this way and he enjoys using his nose to spill out the food. I like this because even though is takes a few min to load, it stays where I put it. We have a large kong wobbler that we sometimes put his food in but he carries it off and it gets stuck under furniture. The small 3 hole lid is too small for the kibble, but the other 1 hole lid works fine. He has figured out how to get the food out with his nose and does not use his paw. It is well made and durable, but we pick it up after he's finished so he won't chew on it...just in case.

  • Great Puzzle

    By on

    This is an excellent puzzle. The border collie loves figuring it out. The cat also enjoys trying to solve it. The only drawback is, there are no assembly instructions, so the human cannot figure out how to install those metal bars and the plastic boxes. Lots of training instructions are included (unnecessary - he is a border collie) but no assembly directions.

  • I guess I have the world's only dumb Min Pin

    By on

    My dog can't get the hang of even one of these tubes, with no lid on. He sticks his tongue in it, and if the snack level is below that which he can reach, he loses interest. This is despite me showing him repeatedly and in slow-mo how it works, and even using his paw. Sigh. I'm that mom who just realized her kid isn't very smart, but dang it, I'll love him through it. If your dog is actually bright, there are increasing difficulty levels. The base is a bit lacking in strength where the legs attach, and I'm not sure I'd leave this out while at work.

  • Awesome toy

    By on

    I got this a couple of weeks ago for my little Coton. He wasn't interested in it at all. Then, all of a sudden tonight he discovered it and has been playing with it for an hour. At first he just bumped the canisters with his nose so they would dump out some kibble - didn't take too long for him to start using his paws and getting them to really spin. My 6 month old pup just sits there waiting for the rewards of the older dogs work. Highly recommend this toy if you have a dog that likes interactive toys and is getting bored with the more traditional ones.

  • Lots of fun

    By on

    Bought this for my 85lb American Staffordshire and she loves it. We followed the instructions on how to teach your dog to use it and she caught on very quickly. It isn't the type of toy you can leave unsupervised but it's fun watching them figure it out so I don't consider that a problem.

  • Fun for You and Your Dog

    By on

    I wasn't sure about this item at first, as my dog is small; and I thought it might be too difficult for her to reach, and the height cannot be adjusted. But the training instructions included were great, and she picked up on it right away and easily progressed to the most difficult level. Now she entertains us by spinning the beakers to get treats. And the size worked out well because she is small enough to walk under the beakers to retrieve her treats.

  • Works great

    By on

    This one of the better so called Toys for dogs my Yorkie just loved it. He spent several minutes going slowly around it, checking it out so to speak. It was actually pretty funny, just watching him. When he finally got it he was so excited, just like any kid would be. My grandchildren and I enjoyed watching him.

  • Dogs ignore it

    By on

    It’s a fine product for a different dog. We have 3 dogs all different breeds, all 3 ignore it. Thought they would love it. I was wrong. It works as advertised, it’s sturdy and well made. Our dogs just have no desire to play with it.

  • Used For Training

    By on

    I love these dog puzzle toys from Trixie and I use them to teach problem solving to dogs in my indoor agility classes. They have a lot of fun figuring out how to get the treats out of the puzzle toys.
