    I've tried a couple of these with Otto.

    In my experience they are too expensive for the amount of time it takes Otto to figure them out.

    Even the most difficult ones were solved within a few days and once he knew what to do the challenge was gone and he lost interest.

    We have the bone shaped spinning one (tornado?)....took Koda about 5 mins to work out, and he knows that if he picks it up and shakes/drops it the treats will come out faster!

    I prefer to hide treats round the house for the boys to find (cheap, uses their brains and there are endless hiding places to use).

    You can also get the inner tube from a loo roll, put a smelly treat eg dried liver in the middle, stuff tissue (or flannels if your dog eats tissue like mine does!) in the ends then put the whole tube under a box.

    You can make it easier at first then harder by putting other things on top of the box, using dummy boxes etc. That way you can constantly change it and challenge your dog instead of being limited by the toy.
