Both our 75 lb. shepherd mix and our 11 lb. terrier mix LOVE this toy, and it keeps them focused and occupied for a while--makes them think and work for their treats! This time we bought one for my brother's dog and his family loves watching their dog work at it.
I seriously don’t think of one dog that can figure it out without stress for me and dog
The toy slides all over on both a wood floor and an area rug, so my 30 lb. dog just gives it a whack with her snout or paw, and the drawers open up as it goes flying across the room. Aside from the 2 drawers held in place by the cones, the others slide open much too easily. One little bump and the treats are exposed. It's not much of a challenge for a medium size dog.
I have a very active Doberman and trying to keep him mentally and physically challenged can be difficult. This is one of the better dog puzzles I’ve tried, the treat compartments aren’t too small like others. I just wish the compartments didn’t fully come out of the toy and were attached somehow.
My 6 pound dog had parts of this chewed the first time she had it! The drawers are impossible to get back in without others falling out. Do not recommend
This is a great thinking game for my 6 lb mini poodle mix. She has 2 level one games, and 2 level two games that she has worked through and become proficient in before this one. I got her this level 3 because I wanted to challenge her a little more. It did the trick! It was the first one that I didn’t show her how to tackle (each of the other ones I showed her how to do). She was able to get it solved in about 20-30 minutes the first time. My tiny dog had no major issues with moving any of the parts to get her treat out. I also like that all the parts can be cleaned easily. However, I don’t think this would work super well for a dog 75+ lbs, since they would probably too easily flip it over. Even then, some big dogs might not do that so it might work. If you’re looking for a great next step and your dog does a good job with level 1/2 games, try this one. I can’t wait to get the next one to see her continue to learn.
Finally a puzzle that took him a hot sec to finish. Great complex puzzle with multiple aspects! It has multi direction levers, strings that can only be pulled after the honey comb is removed, and complicated nudging.
I have a cairn terrier that really likes puzzles. This was his first level 3 puzzle and it actually took a little while for him to learn how to solve this one. Very good.
Requires a variety of activities, and challenges them without being “unsolvable “. Both my pups love it and work on it together.
We bought this for our puppy but is a little too advanced. We play with him and he enjoys that
