For the Love of Pits’™ dogs love puzzle toys. The food cube is one of our favorite ways to feed our dogs’ meals. Mental stimulation is important to tire our dogs and helps prevent mischevious behavior. Puzzle toys work the dog’s brains and helps tire them out. We interchange puzzle toys often, especially during the winter time when dogs are less active, to help keep dogs interested. Interactive toys help beat boredom, give dogs a task, and tire out dogs.
The Buster Food Cube is made of durable plastic and stands up to a lot of abuse (however, we recommend that cubes are picked up after meals to prevent the dog from chewing on the toy and damaging the removable part where food is inserted or splitting the toy (which can happen if teeth dig into the “seam”).
The Food Cube is made to be used with kibble or other similar sized treats. We recommend for feedings. Our experience is that if you have hardwood floors, this can be noisy and can scare some dogs. There is a “soft” food cube but it is for beginners – although we use for expert dogs when hardwood floors are involved.
The Buster Cubes are made to be used with kibble or other similar sized treats and I will generally just fill them with the girl’s daily meals and let them have them. It can take them anywhere between 15 and 30 minutes to get all the food out. he Food Cube, generally, is not for beginners. Please see other interactive toys for getting beginners interested in puzzle toys.
