It’s been a long time since I published a blog post. I just haven’t felt moved to share anything lately. Recently I bought a puzzle toy for Frankie, and so I’m doing a product review.
This puzzle is the Outward Hound Paw Flapper. It has 8 treat cups and 4 flapper doors, with scent holes between the doors. The idea is for the dog to smell and find the treats and use his nose to lift the appropriate door to get the treat. Frankie caught on very quickly and was able to lift the doors almost right away. He hasn’t used the scent holes to sniff out the treats yet. This toy needs a human to supervise because you need to put the doors back down. Frankie got scared of it when a door attacked him. He needs to learn to rotate the toy to position the doors over the treat cups.
I like this toy and I think Frankie likes it.
