I got the brick for Cooper and Nina. Only Nina likes it. Unfortuatly she gets all the treats in about 2 minutes.

:luv: thats because she is a very clever girly.

igot them for when we leave bentley on his own, he's got both of this and a treat ball. we alternate between them all so he doesnt get bored.

when you close the door you can hear him going crazy :rolleyes: x

:lol: I think you need to video her doing that!!

Also you can add elements to this -- for example making a dog wait and then teaching left right directions as to which to open -- etc.

I have two of them and do not use them enough. Jaspar is the only one who tends to get them but I need to put the others in crates in another room then focus on an individual dog. :)

I have two of them - the brick and the one where they spin the disk to different levels and grab the treats. It took a few minutes to figure them out the first time but now they just go to it and have all the treats in a minute. I wish I knew people close by that had others so we could trade to mix it up a bit.
