I like toys like this for a few reasons. First, a lot of our pets simply bolt all of their food. This kind of toy can help slow them down and put them on a more "mindful" track of eating. Second, pet boredom is pretty big problem considering the indoor lifestyle that most of our pets currently live. I see stress related behavioral problems in both dogs and cats on a regular basis. A multi modal approach to giving our furry kids a good life is important in helping to prevent stress and behavioral problems.
Although I feed my cat a primarily wet food based diet, I actually bought this toy and a cat specific Trixie toy which allows me to add bits of wet food to the wells for my senior cat. He can do both and he gets very excited when they come out. I do not, however, actually add treats to this toy or the cat specific toy as suggested. I add either small amounts of very low-calorie dry food, flakes of dried bonito fish, cat grass leaves, or, in the summer, fresh cat nip leaves to the various compartments.
It doesn't really matter what I put in here, he loves the challenge regardless. In fact, I would recommend things like little frozen dollops of canned food and a different brand of kibble vs. several high calorie treats. Even if your pet is lazy most of them will enjoy engaging in this, particularly if you put it out at meal time Instead of the giant bowl of empty mindless calories known as the food bowl.
The round stand up shapes take my cat a while to bat out of place as they were designed for a dog's mouth, but it doesn't deter him from trying, and succeeding, with this game. He Did manage to hide the red stand up cone under the sofa for a few weeks but I finally found it the other day and our game is up and fully functional once again!
Five stars from this vet!!!!
I chose this one because wood puzzles looked unfriendly for frequent cleaning and many of the cat-specific options looked too easy or boring.
There are hidden compartments that must be reached by sliding lids, lever-controlled doors or cylinders that have to be knocked over.
Saga the Egyptian Mau looked at me with her worried eyes the first time I loaded this up and placed it in front of her. She surveyed the situation and looked at me with a face that said, "You're mean!"
She kept yowling for dinner until I gave her training clicks that she associates with getting treats. There was a definite learning curve, I had to show her how everything slid and opened, and she eventually figured out that her persistence would be rewarded with edible things. She learned how to knock over the cylinders first; it took her a couple days to really get the sliding doors and a few more days to figure out the lever-controlled doors. The puzzle really does help keep her busy and a bit quieter while we wait for her food time. It helped to show her what was hiding behind the doors before closing them.
The only feature that is a bit of a design flaw is the groove alongside the sliding doors. Food/treats can get stuck in it and eventually appear to go inside the puzzle.
It's easy to wipe clean and difficult enough to keep Saga credulously rapt without giving up.
