This puzzle toy is my saving grace on rainy days and long days where I just want a glass of wine and fall into the couch.
With a cup full of treats, cheese, bil jac, whatever you prefer, I start by putting treats into each coverable opening. Kinley is placed in down and a few feet away I set the puzzle toy on her dog bed. I say free and she is off. Sniffing, pawing, doing her best to find the treats. When finished, I repeat this process strategically placing less treats so she really searches.
Note: A dog bed is not necessary when using puzzle toys, but if your dog is like mine she will scratch and slide the toy all over your nice hardwoods.
