Twist ‘n Treat Puzzle Toy

To fill the toy, you simply unscrew the two sides, fill up the middle with treats, dog food, or a stuffer such as peanut butter, then reattach the two sides and give to your dog.

You can adjust the difficulty of the toy by leaving it somewhat loose or tightening as much as possible so your dog has to really work at getting the treats out.TreatBuddy3

The toy rolled this way and that while sporadically dispersing pieces of food.

The ones that move are great as well because then the dog is moving around and actively pursuing its meal. This gives the dog a little bit of physical exercise as well.

While food toys are not a replacement for daily walks, they are a great supplement for tiring out your pup. The puzzle toys are simple to use, fill up, and wash. And it makes meal times more fun for your dog.

The only con was that the toy didn’t fit all of Kronos’s breakfast. Although that just meant he had a variety of toys with different ways to release the food which challenged him to use his nose, teeth, and paws.
