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.
