2 Towers Dog Treat Puzzle Game
“2 Towers” is a game demanding a high level of dexterity. The game can be set from easy (difficulty level 1 Paw) to very difficult (4 Paws). It features a variety of puzzles your dog has to solve in order to find the hidden rewards. This 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 levels this game can be used with beginners as well as more advanced players.
“2 Towers” stand on a pedestal and are linked by a bridge. The towers feature cylinders, hats and drawers, and the pedestal contains a trapdoor. The standard version of “2 Towers” contains 8 cylinders, 8 hats and 6 drawers, but you can order additional cylinders and hats. With these additions the game offers up to 33 variations for hiding the dry treats that will motivate your dog to play this game.
How to Play:
- Step 1: Hide the treats in a number of places (underneath the hats, cylinders and trapdoor, and/or in the drawers).
- Step 2: Encourage your dog to start searching, for instance by showing it where the treat is waiting.
- Step 3: The dog can only reach the treat by first moving the cylinders and the hats. If it pulls out the drawers or lifts the trapdoor it may find extra treats as a reward.
Tip: We recommend that 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.
“2 Towers” is made of certified wood covered in a water-based varnish that is not harmful to humans and animals. Please keep the game dry and free of water, as the wooden pieces may swell otherwise. Use only dry treats for playing “2 Towers”.
