What It Is
The Buster Activity Mat is a multi-faceted dog puzzle toy. The top mat is made from a tough canvas material with a rubber material on the bottom. The rubber bottom keeps it from slipping when your dog in involved in a task. The snaps that are on top are for the three tasks that come with the set. Additional tasks can be purchased separately. Each task involves placing treats inside various folded and stuffed pieces of the tough canvas, which your dog should eagerly try to get to. The mat comes with a carrying case, which will fit the mat and the tasks. The tasks come in three difficulty levels: easy, medium, and hard.
Is It Fun?
This is a great treat-dispensing puzzle toy that requires your dog to use his muzzle and paws to get at the treats. Since it features multiple tasks, your dog won't get bored as he might with a single-task puzzle toy.
Who It’s For
This is for any size and breed of dog. This type of toy is important to nurture your dog's natural foraging instincts, which is vital for any dog's good mental health.
What To Be Aware Of
The Buster Activity Mat comes with three tasks. Additional tasks with varying levels of difficulty can be purchased separately. Kruuse doesn't suggest allowing more than one dog to play with the activity mat at a time and that may be due to dogs with food aggression. Kruuse also warns that a 15 minute time limit should be enforced so your dog won't get overstimulated.
