TRAINING WITH TREATS: The Nina Ottosson Dog Smart is an entry level dog game that challenges your dog to discover treats through problem solving and exciting hidden rewards! MIXING IT UP: The bones in this dog puzzle can be arranged to be flush with the board or elevated for different levels of challenges. When the bones (puzzle pieces) on the Dog Smart are flush with the board, your dog will learn to paw and nuzzle at the pieces differently than when the bones are elevated and more easily removeable. LEVEL 1 CHALLENGE: Great for introducing your dog to treat training games, this Level 1 dog game gets your dog interested in games and prepares your pup for more exciting and challenging puzzles to come. HOW TO PLAY: Place treats or kibble in compartments of base. Cover treat compartments with bones. The more compartments that are covered, the harder the game will be. Let the games begin! Show your dog where the treats are and watch them find the tasty reward! Dogs are smarter than you think. Sometimes we just need to teach them! Leave some compartments uncovered for your dog to gain interest. EASY TO CLEAN: To wash your dog?s DogSmart, simply remove all treats/kibble and hand wash with warm soapy water, rinse clean and dry. Fill again for more fun!
