The Dog Brick has been designed by Nina Ottosson as an interactive
game for you and your dog to play together. To ensure safety, the
durable plastic has no sharp edges, is non-toxic and dishwasher safe.
The idea behind the Dog Brick is for the dog to dislodge the removable
bones, then push the sliding covers to reveal hidden treats. You may
choose to put treats in one, several or all of the compartments,
depending upon the dog’s experience and enthusiasm for the game. The
Brick has many variables to increase the level of difficulty as the dog’s
skills improve. The bones have a small hole to allow the scent of the
treat to pass through and encourage him to use his extraordinary sense
of smell. With a little practice, he will soon learn to dislodge the bones
and slide the covers to reap the hidden rewards. If the dog has difficulty
lifting the bones, thread a short section of knotted string through the
hole, which he can then grasp. By gradually reducing the number of
treats, you can encourage him to work harder for rewards.
A past time that both the dog and human can enjoy together, the Brick helps relieve boredom, is a great "anxiety reducer" and increases your dog's problem solving skills. Easy to clean plastic finish.
