Dog Flower Puzzle Game
The MY INTELLIGENT PET | Dog Flower Game is a demanding a high level of dexterity – “4 Paws” on a scale of 1 (easy) to 4 (very difficult). The game trains your dog’s concentration and dexterity, and boosts its natural instincts of curiosity, drive to play and sense of smell. Thanks to its many variable designs this game can be played with beginners as well as more advanced players.
How to play:
The game consists of a round pedestal and two movable platforms. The top platform holds removable cylinders, while the middle platform is in the shape of a flower with five cut-out “petals” covering openings in which treats can be hidden. The top platform can be turned independently of the middle platform and contains five cylinders under which treats can also be hidden. Your dog can reach these by removing the cylinders.
In the centre of the disk there are additional places for hiding treats underneath a lid. Between the “petals” there are openings for blocking cylinders that your dog has to remove before turning the second platform of the game to get to the dry treats hidden beneath the “petals”. There are also additional (smaller) hiding places for treats which your dog can only get out after appropriate shifting/turning of the disk. Dog Flower comes with 10 pieces (cylinders) and offers up to 21 hiding places for dry treats.
It is recommended you start the game with fewer pieces, as your dog may lose motivation if it is not able to solve the game after a few attempts. Let your dog watch as you hide the treats in the game to stimulate its curiosity. By being patient, showing it how the game works and giving it encouragement, you can ensure your dog will enjoy playing the game with you and will solve the puzzle, boosting its self-confidence.
Never let your dog play unsupervised, and intervene if it starts to chew pieces of the game. Regularly check the pieces for any damage such as splinters. Clean by wiping with a damp cloth, and do not use abrasive cleaners.
