Really good game but the design of it isn't great. Easily fixed if it was painted with non toxic paint. Its not going to last long as its the type of wood that goes soft when wet but my puppy (maltipoo) will be bored of it by then. All in all, I would recommend. She has great fun with it. Would be a good idea to make it bigger with more slots. I wouldn't mind paying more for an upgrade
Took my pup about 30 seconds to get the treats out but he still loves it. It's not as challenging as some of the other puzzle toys we have, but this one is his favourite. Added bonus is that he slows down when eating his food. Would recommend this as it's great value for two puzzles.
My staffie x spaniel loves this toy.
She knows how to find the treats, but still loves to play it. She would destroy it if we just left it out, so we put it away in between games. Good if she hasn't felt challenged enough in the day for tiring her little brain a bit!
My Dobermans absolutely love this game. You are buying two in one as the games are completely different using both sides of the board. What a great idea! The product is sturdy and very safe. Will guarantee lots of game times for my dogs. Thank you.
My German Shepherd had this toy for a total of 2yrs before her teeth brought an end to it. She enjoyed the tasks and and I have to say she was too intelligent for it. It was too easy for her but she loved playing it again and again. She used her paws to slide the pieces of wood and her nose. And knocked over the egg cups to get the treats.
I left my dog alone on one occasion and that is all it took for her to destroy the toy. Always supervise your dog and never leave them alone with this game.
Bought for our young Patterdale, she mastered both sides in a few days but she absolutely loves it - insists on having a go every morning before breakfast!
Fantastic value for 2 puzzles, with quick delivery
We bought a few Intelligence toys because our lively boxer had an operation on his cruciate and was housebound for weeks and very bored. Even though he worked them out quickly he loves doing them - or is that just because of the cheese and treats he finds!
Bought this for my miniature schnauzer's first birthday this week, he just loves it! In fact he was barking at it today to use it for his breakfast!! What a fun way to have your daily intake!! Great value for money, we will have this for a long time!
We tend to get this out if its a rainy day and not very often as our dog does the sliders pretty quick as for the other side she picked up the plugs the other side of the puzzle straight away and ran away with them and chewed them , much too easy for her, but saying that she does enjoy doing the puzzle and receiving the treats hidden in it.
Melian, my 3 year old Lurcher, and Viggo, my 3 month old Bearded Collie, already had two brain training games. However none of them were teaching them to use their mouths. With this one they had no option but to pick up the wood cylinders which fit snuggly in the holes with their mouths as using their paws did not work or at least it took too much frantic effort to get them out. I had to do 2 or 3 demonstrations, picking up the cylinders with my mouth, and that was it, they got the hint; Melian carefully picks up the cylinders with her mouth and deposite them gently on the floor; Viggo grabs the cylinders with his mouth and throws them away.
My Jack Russell hates the normal dog toys, she was always bored until I purchased for Christmas this amazing intelligence toy. She hasnt left it alone and her tail wags constantly while finding the treats. Great toy, would recommend this to all dog owners.
We just got this today, meant to be for christmas but i couldn't wait. My Jack Russell loves it and got the hang of it quickly, i'm now going to try to teach him to put the little wooden cups in a tub when he takes them out. No interest from our lab though, lol.
My Jack Russell cross loves using her brain to work things out so I thought this might suit her. However, she just claws at it till the 'hats' fall over or the sliders slide the right way, she's not very gentle, especially when excited! However, it seems well able to withstand this treatment! She might calm down and get the hang of finding where the treats are instead of just going for the nearest or whatever gets in the way though ....
Having said that, she really loves it. I put it on a shelf and she keeps going and looking up at it as much to say, Can't we play the games again? And when she has got it her tail is going 19 to the dozen! Just for that it was worth the money, I was afraid she would either be totally disinterested or get bored after a couple of goes!
