Not good on hardwood floors due to plastic material will crack and makes a lot of noise. Hard to remove the center piece.
Being that she's a dog that needs a job, she loves the task, and working to get the food out. It's stimulating. Always make sure that the inner piece is definitely closed in tightly, or they might chew on it...I've gotten three for her so far.
But it's a must for smart dogs - she loves it.
I would recommend this item to keep dogs busy. If you have more than one animal, they must be supervised because the excitement of the "hunt" for food will cause them to over react which in turn could result in a fight.
Other than that, this is a good study and long lasting item. Try mixing the pet's regular food with a few bits of treat food for added incentive.
The only drawback is that the hard plastic cube is noisy when the food rolls around in it and when the cube bumps against furniture/the walls.
1. The toy is hard plastic, so if you have hardwood floors and your dog really knows how to push this toy around, it is going to be LOUD and annoying!! Not ideal for them to use while you are at home trying to relax and have some quiet time.
2. My dog somehow figured out how to remove the inside plastic core that appropriately dispenses the food/treats, chewed it up and now i can't put it back in its slot anymore- i think he pulled it so hard it broke the plastic that held it in.
So after just 2 weeks, this toy is already ruined...
Does this mean my aussie is a mensa if he outsmarted the genius cube?? I would ask for a refund, but i doubt that would happen...guess i'll stick with the seemingly indestructible Kong toys.
