Rated 3 out of 5 by BenjiBear Beginners puzzle
I have 3 dogs, all small, all on different "puzzle" levels. They're ages are 5, 5, & 2. We do puzzles often, they enjoy it and we love to watch them go at it. I paid $10 for this puzzle, not the $20 asking price. It was on sale. The orange disc is tough to get out, even for me to fill it with treats. Other than that, they had this figured out in no time! Literally, in less than one minute! This is a beginner puzzle, not for the genius dog. If you're looking for challenging and rewarding dog puzzles, buy Nina Ottosson brand. They are well made, durable, and come in varying ranges of difficulty. I recommend this for beginners.

Rated 2 out of 5 by ZowZow Trading for another stimulating toy
We purchased in hopes that our soon to be 13 year old Terrier Mix would slow down in her eating and keep her busy and challenge her (she is very smart, mixed with poodle), deter her from barking for attention while we eat. She ignored it until she was hungry, but could only figure out the red circle. She'd get frustrated and go to sleep. One day I heard the plastic shut, she was trying to get to her food. It's comical, she is scared when she puts her nose under the yellow to open and then it shuts before she gets the food. I thought since she is very smart, she'd have it all figured out, but I think she is scared of the noise and she gives up. I will be returning and exchanging for another stimulating toy. What works for one dog, doesn't always work for another; doesn't make it a bad toy! It's trial and error. I gave it only 2 stars because while I feel my dog is very smart, this toy scares her and seems too challenging. It states for all ages, but I wonder.

Rated 4 out of 5 by KristenAndPets Good Stimulation
I found it great stimulation for foxes the only downside is it's only plastic so it's easily breakable if your pet decides to try to snap it. All my dogs and foxes had fun figuring it out and it was pretty entertaining to watch them too! Although my youngest German Shepherd (3yrs) figured it out in no time! It's a fun little game and the dogs that aren't as smart (ie: not my German shepherd -the problem solver lol) you can do it like once a month or every other month and they find it just as fun! Worth the money. Better than most of the toys they sell at this price for sure.

Rated 4 out of 5 by DianeT Lots of fun for my dog and myself
I spend time almost every day playing this with my dog. He hasn't mastered 2 of the 4 challenges yet, so I help him. This also gives me many many chances to praise him at doing a good job. I can tell he enjoys it cuz he wants to keep playing, plus when I bring it out each day he gets excited.
2 of the challenges do seem very difficult, fi not impossible for him. I can hardly figure out 1 of them myself- so that is saying something!
Overall, it's a good investment & seems to be made or sturdy material.
