Hi, yes I have several wooden games both Molly and Dougall love.....Dotty is still
puzzled :confused:

These are photos taken when Molly was younger. Molly and Dougall are not very active so we try and find things
to keep them stimulated, they both featured in a book "Brain Games".

I have the tornado and the game with the pegs. I do like them but find that once they figure it out -it's no longer a challenge so I put them away and only bring them out once in awhile. I wish I knew people with others close by so we could swap.

Her games are fantastic and you can do all sorts of variations with them depending on the dog's ability.

Tania thanks so much for posting as I wanted to order the book and was trying to remember the name. :D

Am checking some out now as a way to help keep Gracie occupied when I am too busy to play but still with her. I have seen a few related products here in the USA at Petsmart but do not look as interesting as these. Thanks for sharing!

Have you tried treat balls, you can fill them with dried carrot, sweet potato, also filled kongs can keep them busy. If you have time playing with treats on paws is great fun!

Dougall is also in the book, he was supposed to do the Tunnel Rush but didn't do the "Rush" bit.

We don't have as many great options here for treat balls as I would like. But keep looking! Gracie can suck and lick anything out of a Kong item way too fast. I have noticed that while she likes carrots, they seem to disagree with her. Very odd but sticking to bits of apple and sweet potato.

Dougall is such a Cutie. I asked Tania if he would be ellas boyfriend but he may be taken by one of Brian's beautiful girls.

I want to find a toy that is like a squirrel that moves. That would be something Ella would love

I bought the wooden dogbrick for Leo. It took him a while to get the hang of it but now he's quite quick:-p

You can create your own toys, the Brain games book has lots of suggestions - now available from the Gift Shop :-D

You can also get the Dog Magic game http://cavalier-gift-shop.org/wellbeing/fun-interactive-game/prod_153.html


It would be helpful if those who have these toys could say which ones they have and which are the most challenging for their Cavaliers...


We have the Tornado - and true to its name, mine go through it like mini tornadoes raiding the sections for their treats!! Kayleigh can remove the plastic bones, I put string through the holes to make it easier for Cavaliers to pick up.


Nina is obviously really good at the Brick game, we are thinking of that one next :-D

Frozen sweetcorn is popular here [the individual kernels], I also slow bake chicken and liver, rabbit and heart etc in the oven until hard in tiny pieces, and they really like that!

I posted in the review section about how Sonny loves his Busy Buddy Mushroom. It came highly recommended to us and it really keeps him busy. It isn't really a brain game as much as a treat dispenser, but we think it's great!

We have the dog brick.

Ruby slides the compartments open with her tongue by licking them and Charlie frantically scratches at it until something moves lol
