Dogs are very playful and intelligent animals. Channel their energy and curiosity into something positive with TRIXIE's Mad Scientist for Dogs. It's designed for the intermediate canine gamer. Simply place treats inside any of the three beakers and cover with our lids with holes. Once the beakers are correctly flipped and balanced upside down, the treats will be released. We've included two sets of lids, each with a different pattern of holes through which your dog must navigate the treat. Mix and match the lids for varying levels of difficulty. The non-slip rubber feet keep the game in place as your dog explores. We've also included an instructional booklet with tips and tricks for challenging and training dogs of all ages through play. One year warranty. Measures 9 x 7 x 13 inches. Weight 2 lbs.
Style: Mad Scientist for Dogs, Level 2

The only problem is when she doesn't get the kibble out right away she starts gnawing on the plastic cylinders. We haven't been able to use any of the screw-on tops with them for that reason. We just leave the tops open. But it's still a fun game for her that way.
This toy disassembles for very easy cleaning, and I put the cups right into my dishwasher.
For dogs that are not paw oriented, you may need to teach them how to use this. My Saint Bernard is easily frustrated and quickly gave up on this toy, so I had to pull out my clicker and use it to actually teach him to paw target the cups through shaping. My shaping plan worked out to be:
* Click for looking at it
* Click for approaching it
* Click for sniffing
* Click for nosing
(tiny extinction burst when I started waiting for the next criteria)
* Click for any lifting of paw
* Click for paw contact
* Click for any tilting
* Click for tipping
After that, he was tipping it on his own and was largely self-sufficient when playing with this.
I will say that this toy is very lightweight, so it's pretty easy for a dog to knock it over on the side. I would like this a lot better if the bottom were weighted for more stability.
This was the perfect size for my 38 lb Chow mix, but is a little smaller than I'd like for my Saint - I have to fill the cups pretty often for him! I have seen on Facebook some links for DIY toys which are very similar to this one, and I may try one of those to see if I can make this in a larger size more appropriate for a giant breed dog.
