★★★★☆ Four StarsAs you can tell, my girl LOVES this toy. The Paw Flapper is challenging enough that it takes her some time to get all the treats (or her dinner!) from it yet not so challenging that she'll give up. It's one she sits up and begs for when I'm pulling toys off the shelf. http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B006ZTTSOE/ref=cm_cr_rev_prod_title
★★★★★ Five StarsMy dog has NEVER wanted to play with any sort of dog toy, she won't even play fetch (she's kind of a weird dog in that way). However, I do know how much she loves her treats. Our dog is 14 years old, she can not hear at all anymore her vision is going, but she is still very playful with us. My dad thought it was a silly idea for me to waste my money on this item as our dog can't even eat hard food anymore. However, I know my dog and had faith that she would love this item. We broke it out on Christmas day...put a treat in it and the dog went to town. Our dog loved it. She might be deaf, her sight might be going, we will probably even have to put her down soon, but she still has a great since of smell. My dad even said "Well, I guess you can teach old dogs new tricks". Thank you for letting me see my dog SO excited over something again!
★★★★★ Five StarsWe have a Lab/Boarder Collie mix and a miniture dachshund and they both love this item. Often we use this item to feed them just to give them something more to do. Now that they know how best to open it, it only takes them about 5 min to get all the food out of it if it is full. Still fun to watch and holds up well.
★★★★★ Five StarsOkay, so, maybe it's that she's half Aussie Cattle Dog and therefore one of the smartest breeds but my dog DID figure this out extremely rapidly, like other reviews are saying. But you know what, I don't mind. She still LOVES this toy and even gets excited when she sees me pick it up (even when I'm just trying to wash it! XD) Could be good for a dog of any size or age because it's easy to learn. If you want to slow down your dogs eating this is a great way to do it, not only will it keep them from scarfing down too quickly but it's FUN for them, too, and makes them use their brain! People know they need to walk their dogs but they don't realize that mental stimulation is essential, as well! Puzzle toys like these are a super easy and fun way to make your dog work to earn their meals which they LOVE, having a sense of purpose. Why not turn feeding time into a game? :)
★★★★★ Five StarsThis is a good product and I can't believe how cheap it was! As far as "puzzles" go, it is really not the most complicated thing for your dog to figure out. I see it as more of a way to keep the dog from wolfing down her meal so quickly that she gets indigestion or gas. It does do a great job of slowing down mealtime to a reasonable pace. My mixed breed dog weighs 55 pounds and this has stood up to her attentions well, but my dog has not ever tried to chew on it. She leaves it alone as soon as she gets all of her food out. It does not require much strength (or cleverness) to figure the toy out, but my dog gets significantly more excited when I use this for her food than when I give it to her in a bowl. Like many dogs, she does enjoy "working" for anything she can and I think perhaps it is satisfying for her to have to take a little bit more effort to get her food out of the bowl.
★★★★☆ Four StarsMy dog is crazy about treats and he is always trying to do "tricks" to get more and more.This treat toy is a easy solution for you to be able to give your dog treats but make them work for it.Now he has it all figured out but at the beginning he used to smell the toy while looking at us like "what am I supposed to do?". We opened one of the compartments and closed it quickly and then he started trying on his own.I have a pug, and they have no nose... so he really had to fight to open this toy to get the treats.It's a little big for his size but he still plays with it.Recommended!
