    Second one I’ve purchased and I still love it!

    I wanted something that would challenge my dog and also mentally engage him. I had gotten this for my previous dog years ago and knew this was just the thing I was looking for! I love that it has different stages and teaches him to try different things. I use freeze dried treats and they can be placed under the removable bones, in the red flip panels and then also underneath the slide able red panels as well. Like I said, they’re kinda like levels, so I start him without the bones using the flip panels. Once he gets the hang of that, I put the removable bones in and then move onto under the slide able red panels. He has gotten really good at it and is getting quicker with time. I use this as a fun activity to break up traditional training. I like that each of the elements have small holes in them so that he can figure out where the treats are. In the past, my old black lab would get frustrated and chew on the removable pieces (the white bones and the flippable red panels as well) so be careful of that if you have chewers and definitely don’t leave your pup unsupervised while in use! These are easy easy to clean as they are well made plastic pieces. Overall, I love this and will definitely be getting the level 2 one soon!

    Nice toy, but hard to fill

    This treat ball is excellent for the price point. It is sturdy, holds up well to my dog’s batting and pouncing, and is lightweight enough that it doesn’t damage my walls when he gets overzealous. Although the holes aren’t adjustable, it is difficult enough that my dog takes around 10 minutes to finish his meal in this ball. My only issue with it is that it is difficult to fill. You have to fill it through the small hole, and that takes a bit of time. My dog lets me know his impatience by whining the whole time I’m filling it. Overall though, for the price I would recommend it.

    I am so grateful that I found this company, iv bought a few things from outward hound and NO I AM NOT PAID for this review in any way, shape or form!!!! I just really love their products they focus on mental stimulation and I Love that!! I also love how they have different levels of difficulty and a wide variety to choose from that’s amazing! coming from someone that’s experienced with owning many different breeds of dog and have trained multiple breeds as well. I understand dogs and how they think. I’m an animal lover in general but I CAN’T STRESS ENOUGH HOW IMPORTANT MENTAL STIMULATION is for dog’s or any animal for that matter these are good for rabbits, cats, ferrets, birds, even reptiles and other animals there not just for dogs!!! People often give their pets the physical activity that they need but neglect the mental stimulation they need. Mental stimulation is JUST AS IMPORTANT as physical stimulation!!! Animals are a lot smarter than what people think or give them credit for. They do have feelings, emotions, and need mental stimulation just like humans do. Boredom is one of those emotions! Their brains never stop. If you have a dog that has their physical demands met but still has behavioral issues, especially chewing up things you need to get some mental stimulation going on because they’re really bored or ticked off or both lol. When they’re not mentally stimulated their #1 behavioral issue they resort to is chewing and or destruction FYI that can also be a sign of not enough physical activity as well. If your dogs mental AND physical stimulations are not being met than you have a ticking time bomb on your hands!!! as you can see from the picture my pup Came out from the covers when she heard that rattle from the string toy (shown in the pic) she goes nuts over that one lol she loves doing all of her puzzles (shown in the pic) as well she’s so smart. One that I don’t have pictured here is the ball that you put treats in that’s one of her favorites! she will actually bring that ball to me wanting me to fill it up so she can roll it around on the floor to get the treats out lol I have the over the shoulder carrier as well (shown in the pic) I love thing too i believe it can be worn like a normal back pack AND in the front on the shoulders over your stomach iv only worn it over my shoulders in the front over my stomach it’s awesome very comfortable, sturdy and she sits right in it if I could give this company 100 stars I would!! definitely well worth your money if your undecided about the puzzles buy it!! Sorry for the long review I hope it helped and or educated a little bit

    High Quality Puzzle

    This puzzle has been great for our 1 year old mix breed hound. It is very high quality and would not easily be chewed up or broken (although to be fair Freddie is not a big chewer and likes to keep his toys in good shape mostly). Freddie figured out the theory behind this puzzle fairly quickly, but is still perfecting his technique of spinning the internal circle – I would say this is his favorite puzzle (that we own) as it offers him a challenge but he can complete it with minimal frustration. I recently discovered that the puzzle can be made a bit more challenging by putting the treats in the holes rather than just in the cups – that way the dog will have to move the peg twice in order to reveal a treat. I have not tried freezing treat tidbits in the little cups (as is suggested by manufacturer) – but I think I will try this in the summer.I would recommend this puzzle to people who have dogs that like puzzles and have tried a few easier ones first. Freddie benefited from me showing him and helping him out the first few times with this before I stopped offering him help and he had to finish it on his own (can’t give this to him around my 3 year old who just does the whole thing for him).I just want to add, not all dogs, even smart ones, like puzzles – my dog, who passed away, was really smart and could learn and do tricks like a little circus dog (and loved it), but when i gave her even the most basic puzzle (a ball rolling treat dispenser) she looked at me like I was insane and turned up her nose; that is just to say, as this is not a cheap toy, make sure that your dog actually likes these types of challenges.

    Review of multiple products

    Ball treat dispenser:I specifically bought this ball because it’s diameter is larger than the height from floor to furniture in my apartment – the other ball would get under furniture and I spent a lot of time looking for the ball. I use the ball for feeding my dog his kibble. The problem with this ball is that you cannot twist and open it. So I have to carefully pour in the kibble from the measuring cup. I considered using a funnel but I don’t want the clutter. So you won’t be able to clean this as easily as one you could open. On the bright side, there are less pieces to deal with. Also, I think my dog doesn’t find it as entertaining. There isn’t much challenge – he just nudges it with his nose and the thing spews food. This also means that he isn’t preoccupied for as long. So 3 paws from my dog and 3 stars from me.Worker puzzle:I got it from Amazon for $15. The package was badly damaged and the center piece had a small piece that attaches to the larger and darker piece was broken off. This is what allows the center piece to spin around. I was able to fix it with sugru. I let him at it and I think he figured it out in the time it took for me to put away the dishes. This puzzle was easy for him compared to the Casino and Twister puzzle which are all Advanced/Level 3 puzzles. I think it is also easier for him because it doesn’t have little handles he needs to pull out. So I think we’re on to level 4.The Twister Review:4-5 month update: my dog finally figured out the Twister. It was frustrating for me and my dog. I had him try out the Casino. It had a shorter learning curve and can finish it in around 5-10 minutes. Then, after a week of doing Casino, I gave him the Twister puzzle and he got that done in under 10 minutes. I think he really needed the Casino puzzle to pick up skills so he could apply it to the Twister. What I did previously was akin to giving a child The Little Train That Could followed by a college level General Chemistry text book and expecting a thesis at the end of it. So I’m completely satisfied now with the puzzle and bumped up my rating to 5/5. So tied string and looped it around a triangular piece of cardboard like a pedal, and gave him the command paw. He was able to pull the key and open the lock with my makeshift pedal in a few minutes. I think the challenge of the puzzle is more physical – the handles are small for human fingers and it isn’t something ergonomic or practical for paws. Maybe if you had a pet monkey it would work great. Design-wise I think humans were given preference over dogs. My dog eventually has figured it out and he is able to open it.The Brick Review: This is the first puzzle my dog was exposed to so it took him longer to figure it out. It took maybe 30 minutes for my 12-year-old Jack Russell to figure out the puzzle. No hints for him! The second time, he got it done in 10 minutes. I initially had some apprehension before purchasing, because I wasn’t sure he would be able to figure it out. I had a homemade puzzle made for him that he gave up on.I shared the puzzle with another dog (a samoyed) and it took her a few days. I never had to remove the puzzle from my senior Jack Russel who would just leave the puzzle after he was done, but the 2-year-old samoyed destroyed parts of the brick puzzle.Casino Review: This puzzle took longer to learn. By 3 months he was able to consistently solve the puzzle. I know he’s learned something because it takes him less time to solve the puzzle. He didn’t do puzzles for a month and he was doing the twister puzzle for a while and his time to solve the puzzle increased. So just like humans, dogs have to relearn something they haven’t seen in a while.

    My almost 15 year old Yorkie has fun with this puzzle!

    Boo makes quick work finding his treats even though the puzzle can be tricky. He uses his paw and nose to discover the treats in the nooks and crannies. He is fun to watch. He’ll often go back an hour later to double-check AFTER we have put the puzzle back together. He has 3 puzzles. He spends more time solving this one.

    Fantastic overall!

    Bought this for my very large German Shepherd, so was worried it wouldn’t be big enough but it’s just fine for any of you out there with larger dogs. My girl figured this out pretty quickly but with all the little slides, drawers, and moving parts, it still keeps her busy for several minutes. She gets very excited when I’m “loading” it up for her. I was concerned about the durability (again, big dog with big teeth), but she just gently tugs the lids of some of them, nudges the others open, and there’s been no damage whatsoever except for slobber EVERYWHERE.A fantastic puzzle for your pooch – and don’t worry, because even when they’ve “solved” it and can open it with relative ease, it will STILL keep them busy and happy for at least a little while!

    My dogs love this!

    I bought 2 of these for our dogs. One is a pittie mix that is a super chewer. They love these! Any time I pick them up to get them filled with treats/kibble my 2 go nuts! My pittie is still learning how to work them & has more than one tore the little lids off but the snap right back on & are none worse for wear. They are strong & have held up well to him.

    Intermediate level toy but my beginner dog loves it!

    I saw this on Instagram, and decided to get one for my 10 year old dog. She’s never had a puzzle type toy, but she quickly figured it out. She had a little trouble picking up the white bones. The red compartments open and slide, but they don’t come out. My dog wants them to come all the way out, so I wish they did. I’m glad I bought this; she enjoys it and we have fun watching her do it!

    Good product

    The product is good, kept my15 week old corgi puppy entertained for a little while. Although she did figure it out by the 3rd try on the first day and had it mastered within 5 minutes. After quickly finding all of the treats she then entertained herself by taking all of the lids off and chewing on them. I was surprised how quickly she figured it out. Not sure how entertained she will be with it going forward now. I will try a more advanced one next.

    Keeps my puppy occupied

    So our new puppy likes to play all the time and this toy is perfect.We had treats in the compartments and he just keeps going until he get them all, then looks at us to add more. Perfect toy for an active puppy 🩷 or a picky eater who prefers a challenge to get his food

    Great for a starter

    This is great for a starter for your pup to play with but after awhile they figure it out and it isn’t as much of a challenge for them. I think it took our puppy a few months to play with this before she figured out how to take all the pieces out with ease.Would recommend this for training.

    I like it!

    After buying my first puzzle, I immediately bought 4 more. The only thing I don’t like about this one is the lids easily pop off. They were falling off as I opened the product. However, I do love how I can make this puzzle harder or easier depending on which dog I give it to. For $8 it is worth the flimsy lids but I do wish they were sturdier

    My dog loved the cheese we put inside of it! She was panting after she finished finding all of the treats, which means it was tiring for her! I love how tough it is and how whenever my dog would try to chew on it she wouldn’t even leave a scratch! Overall, 5 star!

    My dachshund love this feeder ball. Although, it is a challenge to limit the space in which they use it. I limit the area to our sunporch or outside on the patio. The challenge when they use it outside on the patio is to keep the crows away. Dachshunds have a huge prey drive, and once the crows figure out there was kibble spread all over they started harassing my dogs -LOL! – which resulted in my dogs chasing the crows and barking incessantly. While it is definitely amusing to watch, I can’t imagine my neighbors appreciate it! nevertheless, they enjoy it, and it stimulates their mind.

    Makes Feeding Fun

    Excellent product. Well made and durable. 4 month old Aussie challenged and works for his dinner keeping him busy and tires him out of his Aussie “I ain’t tired yet” mode. One should add string to the white challenge pieces as my pup had a hard time removing them from the puzzle. All in all, well worth the price.

    My corgi girl is very curious, attention seeking alway and always, asking to play 24-7…kind of dog. But when I put treats into this, she will give me some peace time and she also looks enjoying to have challenge. She stop opening some of them because that is not her favorite treat…..😟but overall I am happy and she is happy. Recommend if you have a super energetic dog who needs something to make them busy.

    Functions well as a slow feeder while also providing mental stimulation.

    This works well as a slow feeder and as a mental stimulation game. My dog sometimes gets distracted by the white covers because he views them as toys and starts chewing them, but other than that, he likes it overall.

    It’s great for the price.

    My do has chewed but most of the pieces, but it took him some time to do. He used it for several months before it got to this point. Even with only the sliders left, it keep him busy for at least a half of an hour.

    I’ve gotten my dog a few toys like this, this one I think let’s too many treats out too easily. It’s emptied too quickly. My dog ends up just moving it around a couple of times and sitting and eating the treats because they all come out so quickly.

    Nice but fragile

    My dog didn’t solve the puzzle, he ate the puzzle. He was busy trying to solve it for about 10 minutes until he realized that he could just tear the whole thing apart to get to the treats inside.

    Bought for sheep

    Bought this for sheep, large red & yellow ball has two 3/4″ holes (about). Put healthy fun treats in it for sheep, they liked knocking it around with there nose & feet to get the food out. It doesn’t unscrew so to clean you have to wash with soap & water, maybe a bottle brush or something. You can look up healthy safe plants in your yard that they like to eat, cut up carrots, apples, veggies, etc. Please make sure sheep can eat everything you put in it!

    Amazing for my active 13 year old chihuahua mix!

    The media could not be loaded.

    I actually received the Tornado puzzle a couple of hours ago and ran to give it a 5 star review. I started her off with the level 1 puzzle pictured in my review, but she figured it out within a couple of minutes and just seems to be inconvenienced with it now lol. I still used it to create a little bit of a buffer with her treats, but it really wasn’t as enriching as I’d like it to be.I love how the Tornado forces her to use her critical thinking. The white cover pieces will block certain layers from its 360° rotation, forcing your pup to figure out they need to remove them top down to get all the treats from every pocket. You can configure the cover pieces in different ways every time to give your dog a new challenge.I think this is a great toy for small to smedium sized dogs. I’ve heard the white pieces are choking hazards for big dogs and I imagine they’d chuck the puzzle around after becoming frustrated 😂

    A lovely toy for all dogs!

    My 55 lbs amstaff enjoyed playing with this! I ended up giving it to the shelter I got her from for her fellow shelter dogs to play with. At first she was interested in the treats but then just wanted the ball itself and scratched it up a bit. Would be great for a dog that won’t chew on it! I decided she might be better off with a wobble she can chew for treats or just a giant ball. Worth the buy!

    This was not a good choice for my Doodle

    My Golden Doodle is very clever, but she can’t manage the white locks that secure the individual compartments . She works to take the lids completely off the compartments. It does keep her busy but it’s not the toy I envisioned

    Great ball overall but treat holes are large making this an easy puzzle

    Easy to fill for the most part and doesn’t get too dirty indoors. Wish the treat holes were adjustable though – this is great for larger kibble or young puppies. Regular kibble comes out FAST, making this barely a challenge for teenage – adult dogs.

    Ciaran gives it two paws up.

    My friends border collie has one, and loves it. (She’s much brighter than my Labrahound). I decided to give it a try when the price dropped. He is having fun and getting good at figuring it out, much faster than I thought he would. Getting some mental exercise with his treats. (Start them out with simple ones, and give a little help at first. )

    As described

    The media could not be loaded.

    We have a 12 yr old 65 lb dog who is showing signs of either anxiety or canine cognitive dysfunction senility). Every night she begins to pant and it last for hours. She already has 2 puzzles that she loves. We wanted more to keep her brain active, to “mentally wear her out” as our vet put it (to decrease anxiety) and for something else fun to do. She knows the word “puzzle” and as soon as I said it, she dug right in! We started with the white governors all pulled out. The more of them that are pulled out, the easier it is to do. Her other puzzles have slide components but not in the side to side direction. Today was the 2nd time she used it (video is 1st day), and she’s getting the hang of how they slide side to side. She’s pawed at it and bitten it and it seems very sturdy. I included the photo w my hand to show the size of the compartments. Big enough for MANY kibbles of food. So I’d think this would also be good to use as a slow feeder. I’d buy it again.

    Lots of ways to win

    This is one of my favorite treat puzzles. Both my Yorkie and my cats love it. It is extremely versatile which keeps them interested enough to learn all the mechanics. There’s pushing and popping and opening.Each mechanic can work alone with this, so you can train each part separately until they work out each part.The easiest part was the push mechanic because her natural sniffing instinct pushes it out of the way very easily.The crate opening was challenging but quickly doable on the first go-around because again, sniffing will accidentally open a few of them, and you can slightly assist the procedure and eventually she catches on.The hardest part for my Yorkie was getting the bones out because it’s hard for her to manipulate it with her paws and she can’t grab onto them with her teeth like bigger dogs might. She would give up early on, so I tried two tactics to help her out: 1) extra special and extra smelly treats 2) place them slightly askew at first so they’re easier to pop out. Now that she has confidence in her ability to open them, she opens them up with normal food and normal placement.You could also buy the easier bone-up puzzle to start with? I didn’t because it looked “too easy” but it is surprisingly the most difficult thing for my pup since she’s not used to using her paws to manipulate to lift things and her mouth is too tiny to grab it with biting.Like I said, this one is my FAVORITE of all the toys. It’s a must have!

    I bought some cheese-favored treats. In no time he found them all. Next time I’m going to time him. I love to watch him entertain my guests.

    He figured it out

    I thought this would be too difficult for my puppy I left for a while to go shopping and I had put treats in the places. when i got back he got all the treats I am sure he was busy for a while to keep him out of trouble. It is very durable.

    Keeps my pup entertained!

    Overall a fine product. Not super durable as my dog was able to chew up parts of it, but still is in working condition.I’d recommend not leaving your dog unattended while using this product.It may be tricky for your pet at first, but it’s pretty easy for them to catch on!

    Simple but fun brain game

    This isn’t overly complicated, but it is a fun brain game that has enough levels to keep my dog entertained for a while.

    Treat ball worth the purchase.

    My pups really love this treat toy. Keeps them entertained as they problem solve obstacles while pushing the toy across the floor. It can be a little noisy if used on hardwood flooring.

    As long as there are treat in it, they like it!

    My standard poodle likes it and figured it out in about 30 minutes. It’s really cute to see her pick up the white bones and look for the treats. My little rescue is still a little wary of it but can handle using it so long as the little white bones aren’t used. She prefers the felt toy that is shaped like a flower where you can hide the treats.

    Good game for the dogs

    Only took one try for the dogs to figure out how to use it. Not durable enough for a German Shepherd but for smaller dogs it lasted longer. A good toy/item

    Great Puzzle for cats

    My 2 ragdoll cats love this puzzle. Lots of places to hide food or treats – keeps them occupied!

    Great toy for older dogs

    I have a 14 yr old mixed hound, often lethargic. This toy keeps her engaged & it seems to stimulate simplest problem-solving (pulling the ball from a corner, looking for kibble, etc.)

    Too Easy for Corgis

    I got this for my senior corgi; his body is slowing down but his mind is sharp as ever, and it’s been difficult to wear him out without long walks. It’s a good toy- it feels durable, the parts slide easily, and I was sure it would be a challenge. Unfortunately he’s still a little TOO sharp, and he had the entire thing figured out in 5 minutes.I should note that the little flaps come off easily by design- some people mark that as a con, but I think it’s perfect. Otherwise my dog would rip them off in an attempt to remove the entire box and get to the treat underneath. When the door came off, he dropped it and went back to the toy. That said, I would never leave him unattended with it.My main gripe with this toy is cleaning it is a headache. There’s a ton of nooks and crannies. My dog has gotten slobbery with age so it’s pretty gross by the time he’s done with it.

    Keeps my dog busy for a while

    I have this large size and the next size down for my extremely intelligent GSD who can solve any normal puzzle toy in 5 minutes or fewer. The good part about this toy is that even though she understands HOW to get the treats out, she has to position the toy correctly to get them to fall out, which is a bit harder for a dog to do. Therefore, it keeps her busy for a good long while, which is great since she recently got spayed and needs to be kept occupied but not running around. She can still get her jaws around the large size, but it’s definitely big enough that she can’t chew it or bite down with any kind of force to damage the toy or her teeth.
