Dobby loves his treats. Sometimes we use them as rewards, sometimes as incentives. We’ve been using treats to get him to learn how to shake, for example. But the thing bout treats is, they”re gone pretty quickly. You obviously don’t want to give your dog an unlimited supply of treats for a couple of reasons – because they’re not food and because that would make them less special. So how can you “extend the life” of a treat? By sticking it into a Buster DogMaze.
The Buster DogMaze Buster Dog Maze is a food maze. The phthalate-free molded one-piece product is made of food-grade PP and can be used indoors or outdoors.  Anything you put in it your dog has to work to get out. The product was designed with the intent of making your dog use his intelligence and senses of sight, smell and touch to get the food. It’s easy to use. Just put a treat into an area of the deep, curved tracks and let your dog go to work. In order to get the food the dog must get it to one of the two exits in the maze.
Here’s a brief video showing how it works.

We use it as a dog toy. The first time Dobby used it he was pretty young and impatient and got frustrated and gave up. He’s a little older and more patient now and gets excited when he sees us get the maze out.  If your dog eats too fast, you could also consider using it as a dog bowl, since it would slow down the amount of time they ate their meal in considerably. You can adjust the level of difficulty by changing the size of treats or the amount of treats you put in. Because the dog can work to get the food out in a number of ways (using their tongue or paw, for example), the product is suitable for almost all dog breeds and sizes.

The Buster DogMaze is available for purchase online from Amazon, currently retailing for $30.

We just got our dog in December. He was a 2 year old rescue dog, so he was sort of trained when we got him -although not completely. We give him treats when he does his business outside, but that is it.

Very interesting idea. Depending on the size of the treat, it could give a dog something to do for hours, of course rewarding him with treats on the side. I usually just give a treat, no special way but I do find this bowl intriguing. I’d like to try it with a dog, seems like he’d enjoy it.

What a fantastic idea – I wonder what Sally would think of one, I might have to get one to see what she thinks 🙂 x

My dog is so lazy that she’d give up on this in a second lol, she’s a piggy.

Once or twice a day usually after they have been out.

I don’t have any pets but this dogmaze video made me laugh. Poor dog, kept going the wrong way. I actually cheered when he finally got his treat!!

I don’t have pets but I love this concept. My siblings and parents have dogs, so I will be sure to tell them about this really neat product!

That was super fun to watch! I’m not sure this would work on my little dog, though. It looks like they need to be tall.

This is so cute because it makes getting a treat kind of like a game for the dog. My Labrador would love this.

Ashley Gill April 28, 2014 - 11:56 am

I think my dogs would love this!!! I’d have to get 2 though. They don’t do well with taking turns when it comes to treats.

That is interesting. I have never heard of this thing before.
