My Shelties are experienced puzzle solvers, but they still found this puzzle challenging. It allows various levels of difficulty, so even dogs who have not spent years working puzzles could enjoy the puzzle on some level. My guys can now work it in about 5 minutes, but it took many tries before they could do that at the most advanced level. And they still enjoy solving it. Unlike some of the plastic Nina Ottosson puzzles, this one is heavy enough that a dog can't simply pick it up and slam it down upside down and dislodge the locking mechanisms. This Dog Worker and the Twister are the best designed Nina Ottosson puzzles for the skilled dog. But all these puzzles require supervision to make sure the dog doesn't chew excessively on the pieces and ruin the puzzle. You can't simply present these puzzles to a dog and go off to work. A strong chewer can demolish any of them.

This is very interactive and kept my 8 month old labradoodle engaged for 45 minutes in order to get out every peg. She also picked it up and carried it across the room to where she wanted to do it on her own. I set it up in the hardest setting possible to really challenge her and she did great. I used the same treat in each peg, however I will switch it up next time.

The only negative thing I can add is that at 53 pounds Coco is no lightweight and her large teeth and nails did scrape a little bit of the wood along the edges of the circles after she had licked at it for a while. I pushed it back down and let it air dry and you cannot even tell that there was an issue.

The first time I gave this to my Corgi, who had easily mastered a plastic puzzle, she became frustrated with the more difficult pegs and began to chew the wood. I should have kept an eye on her. She wasn't injured, but could have been if she had continued much longer. Megan only had it for 12-15 minutes. It has been sitting in my closet ever since. This is a difficult puzzle, but you can use it at different levels. I recommend watching your dog as he works it.

This was a gift for a friend about a year ago. She has a pomeranian who likes to shred paper and chew on stuff. He loved the toy, but some of the wooden parts took a tooth imposed beating. He did not destroy any of the parts, though, they are just a bit ragged. It took him about a month to figure out the most challenging level, but then it never was a challenge again. I really like the toy and it is great, but once it is learned, it does not occupy for long.

We have a Border Collie / Austrailian Sheppard mix. The word smart doen't even begin to explain the brain on this dog. (She starts 1st grade in the fall :-) We've tried many "toys" to keep her brain engauged...but none seemed to challenge her. Now that we have this "worker" she is really challenged. It took all of two times for her to graduate to the most advanced level. But, now that she has to spin the wheel to line up the slots, she really has to work for it!
We found a jar of semi-soft treats, that look like little steaks, at "the worlds largest retailer". These are just the right size for the wooden blocks to fit around. *Note* They need to be no larger than your finger nail.
Our cat can't stand it...he has to help our dog find the treats. GREAT PRODUCT NINA OTTOSSON!

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
This is a fun toy - I particularly appreciate that it has variable difficulty levels, so our dog can start at the easy level and work his way up.

This is a wooden puzzle, so you really have to work it with your dog, so that he or she doesn't eat it. It has a few different difficulty levels, depending on where you hide the treats.

Easy-1: Hide treats under the 4 outside pegs. The dog has to lift the pegs to get the treats.

Easy-2: Hide treats in the 6 holes under the spinning disk in the middle. The dog turns the disk to get the treats.

Medium. Unscrew the center disk, and hide treats under the 6 sliding pegs around the disk. The dog slides the pegs to the middle, where he or she can pull them out to get the treats.

Genius: Leave the center disk in and hide the treats under the sliding pegs. The dog turns the disk to each peg's track, then slides the peg to the middle to pull it out, then turns the disk to the next track to get that peg.

This is really well made - all the parts fit together well and move smoothly. So far, our dog is still stuck in the first step - about half the time, instead of getting the treat, he runs away with the peg and tries to eat that - but we love that once he masters that, we can introduce something else to keep him interested. Strongly recommended for a dog that likes puzzles, whether easy or hard.

I have an 11 year old jack Russell and a 4 month border terrier. ! own both the dog fighter and the dog worker and feel that these two are the best out of the Nina Ottosson collection. both puzzles are a hit with both dogs and surprisingly the puppy seems to catch on faster than our 11 year old. the puzzle is a little pricey for a dog toy but if you do some research and read other reviews these puzzle toys are one million times better than its competitors. the kyjen puzzle toys are crap compared to this toy.

after a while you can actually see your dog grow smarter and smarter after a few sessions with these puzzles . In fact i have been looking on amazon for another Nina puzzle for my dogs.
