Is It Fun?
Puzzle Toys like the Jigsaw Glider are a great tool to keep your dog from eating too much too fast, which can cause digestion issues. It's also good for their mental well being. Before becoming domesticated, dogs were primarily foragers. The Jigsaw Glider gives them a simulation of scavenging or searching and winning their own food. For pet parents the fun is simply watching your dog figure out a way to get to the treat chambers.
Who It’s For
The Jigsaw Glider can be used will all dogs but we think this one is ideal for small- to medium-sized dogs.
What To Be Aware Of
The sliding parts separate from the base easily. We found that you can snap them back into place with very little effort. The rubber pads slow down the puzzle on hardwood surfaces but it still slides a bit. This product is made with food-grade plastic and is BPA and Phthalate free. Unlike other Outward Hound Puzzle Toys this one cannot be adjusted to make the puzzle more difficult.
