Chew City

After a couple plays my dogs completely tore up the plastic around the side holes and the yellow plastic lining, had to throw it out unfortunately. It's a great concept but if your dog is a chewer I wouldn't recommend, and also the treats fall out really easily so the game of it all doesn't last very long. Bark shop does have some good ones with hardier materials that make it harder for getting treats, but this one just didn't hold up unfortunately. Two stars for a good concept, just could use a little more work.

Great in concept..

We have a 3 year old Golden Retriever. She didn’t find it too much of a puzzle but she found it worth of a chase around the house as long as it was spitting kibble at her! However, one it stopped & the house was quiet, we found that she had gnawed the sides of the toy & it no longer fit together properly nor would hold/dispense treats. It lasted us an entire 15 minutes.

Almost edible

My 4mo old puppy Willie loves his treats! So I thought a game to 'earn' them would be fun. I ordered this 'maze' and find he doesn't hold the patience needed to enjoy looking for the treat. He would rather chew the top off or the 'hole' ends. Good for a few minutes of play but have to put it up immediately to preserve the potential destruction about to ensue. It fits very snugly in the box so it is a puzzle for us humans to remove and restore back in it. Willie will need to learn patience before he gets to play. Interesting treat dispenser though.

Great diversion for at least 5 minutes

Zoey, our Corgi, really had fun with this toy, but it only took her about 5 minutes to get all the goodies out.

Fun and engaging

My 3 month old was able to master this maze in just a few minutes, I was so proud! She picked it up and flung it across the room. It's easy enough to keep her interested but also difficult enough that she won't get all the treats at once. It'll last her a good half hour. Once I pick up the maze to drop treats in, she's already preparing herself for what's coming and she completely ignores the world around her.
