Kyjen Puzzle Testing

Being a Kyjen toy tester is a great gig.

As my friend Mango would say, my mom person wanted to stimulate my mentals so she chose the Paw Hide Dog Toy Puzzle.


We tried it one time doing it like the dog on the packge, but my mouth isn't quite big enough to get those yellow puzzle pieces out.  Morgan from Kyjen suggested we tie cloth strips through the holes in the pieces and we tried again.


Here's Oskar playing with the puzzle.


And a little video.

A couple of times when Oskar got the yellow piece off, he ran away with that & ignored the treat he was supposed to be digging for!

I think that this is an amazing toy for a more treat motivated pet who needs more mental stimulation to keep them happy.  Oskar just wasn't that interested if we weren't prompting him.

Kyjen is a great company that sells their own brands based out of Colorado.  Check them out for unique new dog products.  You could even end up being a toy tester yourself!

What a great gig. Bailey and Katy love these toys. The challenge is getting them to take turns.

Great toy! We definitely need to keep Finn mentally stimulated - thanks for the review (and video!)

Looks like a great toy, we keep applying but havent been picked yet :(

My pack is definitely treat-motivated. In fact..they are anything edible motivated. Brudder Max (DaOdderWeenie) loves his gumball machine treat dispenser. He dispenses and the rest of us grab the treats!

:o)

My hairy slobbery sister Bob thinks that would be a fun toy! Cinnamon does not think much. Me thinks she has a brain the size of a pea!
Me wonders if there is a toy like that for kitties....
Kisses

Oh, that is a cool gig! Testng out toys seems so fun! We have has quite a few kyjen toys, and while they are now destroyed, they actually have held up the longest, yuki has teeth of steel! Great thing about them is it keeps them entertained longer than a lot of other toys.

Great job, Oskar - you know how to do it, you don't need those strings:) And yes, Frankie, Amber, and Max, we would all be doing the same thing here, grabbing the treat after some one of us revealed it.

Thanks for sharing.

Great idea to be put strings on it!!! Pauley's missing & worn down teeth make it hard for him to work the puzzles, but the string should work perfect!! Glad Oskar likes it :)

Oh we just love being teased with those puzzles

What a cool toy! Funny that Oskar didn't want the treat - he wanted that pesky yellow piece!

Brian said...

That is so cool, they need a smaller one for cats!

Luna said...

That toy looks like fun!

Though I would probably run off with the yellow thing, after scoffing the treat of course :)

:D We like those kinds of toys and have some of the Nina Ottosson ones. Part of the fun is playing together with our mom :). We'll have to check out the Kyjen puzzles- thanks for the great review!

That's a great gig you got there Oskar! We love Kyjen toys at our house. That uzzle looks PAWTASTTIC!

That looks like so much fin. Maybe we out to get one of those puzzles, exercising your dogs brain is so important

Sagira said...

We have that toy here. I let Bokeh take off the pieces and then I grab the treat before he can get to it. :)

Cat Chat With Caren And Cody said...

Dakota is HUGELY treat motivated. He does do what Oscar does though. He takes the top part of his other puzzle toy that he has and "stashes" it in his little hiding area. For a dog that is their prized possession. Then Dakota comes back to continue looking for the treat.
Cute toy!

Mango said...

BAH! Those mentals stimulation toys make me really mad! Why can't they just give us cookies and be done with it?

Slobbers,
Mango

Kyjen Treat Wheel dog toy puzzle will test your dog's problem solving skills. Insert treats under paw print cups and your dog has to remove the cups and remove the treats inside. Thanks a lot for share such type of informative post.
