Good challenge, could use some tweaks

The item on its own is pretty good, the food stays clean and doesn’t touch the floor, the price is good, it provides a good challenge for my cattle dog mix. The idea of just pulling out the rings is nice and does not create a mess, although they do tend to go back to the closed position easily and this makes it frustrating for the dog and mine ends up just pulling them completely out. The sliders are fine for a gentler Dog or approach but even my dog at first just slid some of the flaps over the rings, it can be done but I don’t think all dogs would do it all the time, I no longer see this happen when I feed my dog.

Now as compared to the previous model....
it holds much less food, I can fit about half a cup into it which isn’t very impressive. It does take up less storage space though which is nice, and I prefer the rings to the bones becuse they make less of a mess and are easier to store in the toy without becoming chew toys. Since my dog was used to putting out chewed on hard to dislodge bones, she likes to pull out the rings as well which makes it a bit annoying but with training I think it could be avoided.

Overall I wish it could hold more food and that the rings stayed out once pulled out.

Great For An Old, Smart Poodle

My Standard Poodle mix who is 10, loves this puzzle. He is difficult to buy for, since almost every puzzle toy I've bought for him is too easy to keep him entertained. This puzzle was challenging for him when I first got it out of the box (I didn't show him how to work the drawers and locks at all as an extra challenge), and it quickly became one of his favorites. This is also durable, as it was tested a few times during his frustrations when he would pick it up and throw it or try to dig the locks apart. I bought this back in February and I've waited to write a review until he finally mastered it to see if it would survive. Overall, a well-made, difficult puzzle for a wicked-smart old man!

There are ways to make this more challenging if you think about it

My standard poodle "beat it" right away by pawing it like crazy, flipping it over, etc so that everything was uncovered and/or fell out quickly. The frenzy was probably because I made the mistake of filling all the compartments at once with special treats (or the first try). My mistake. Since then, I've trained him to be more civilized about it ... one to three treats at a time, and not letting him flip it. Now he's spinning it with his nose or occasionally a paw, spending a lot more time and being kind of systematic (that's my flattering interpretation). He has also learned to detect when there are no more treats in it, and he leaves it. He'll mess around with it (me refilling it over and over) for a half hour, and he's equally eager now if the hidden contents are just bits of his daily kibble.

The bone inserts are going to be the next challenge level and I look forward to him learning about them gradually. I wish it had adjustable friction though. I'm going to disassemble it and add some kind of shim between levels so it doesn't spin easily. I think he'll then get more of an idea of how it's constructed. That's what I would do if the user were a human baby - it has to be slowed down a bit to grasp its mechanics.

I would say that this works for big dogs and smart dogs if the the owner thinks about the dog learning process. Definitely a good purchase.

Navi LOVES it

My poodle pup loves this, I needed something to help her expend energy while I work on art and when I take her places like conventions. She loves this thing. She figured it out pretty quickly but it still takes her a good amount of time to move everything around n get everything out. Shes LOUD though, its probably just her cuz she even picked it up and tipped it over XD
She likes to bang it around and make a lot of noise with it but it doesn't bother me so much at home, but ill probably have to find another puzzle toy that she cant throw around n make such loud noises for public spaces.
When shes finished she comes over and barks to let me know, guess she wants to play againXD

Loved by pup. Use under supervision only!

My dog (10yo 17lb Jack Russell/poodle mix, light chewer, food motivated, smart enough to figure out kitchen cabinets) is a huge fan of every food puzzle I have gotten him, because, well, food! This one has kept his interest even after he figured out how to solve it, because now I only put kibbles in some of the compartments so he has to sniff out the right ones to open.

I set some ground rules for puzzles like this, and the dog figured them out quickly with consistent enforcement:

1) The puzzle starts when I say "all right", and not a moment sooner (so I can fill puzzles where he can watch me doing it). If he tries to go for the puzzle before I give him the go-ahead, he gets physically blocked and told to "stay" (he knows stay).

2) No tipping the puzzle. If he tries to flip or tip any of these puzzle boards I immediately pick it up and keep it out of his reach for five minutes.

3) No chewing the puzzle. All removable parts of the puzzle are picked up as soon as he removes them. Mouthing the puzzle and using teeth to pick pieces up is okay, but if he tries to settle down for a chewing session with a piece, both the piece and the puzzle are picked up for five minutes. (He always has rubber toys and nylon bones available to him.)

After he has revealed almost all of the compartments (I don't count or pay close attention now that he plays with puzzles gently), I say "all done!", flip the puzzle upside down and shake to make sure it is emptied (usually one or two stray bits of food or treat fall out and are promptly eaten), and put it away out of reach.
