The rope got in the way and made it a little hard to get biscuits out. I just cut it and left one knot inside and it works a treat. Would recommend this for any pup or adult dog that enjoys a challenge. Mine loves feed time now.
My Labrador LOVES this toy! Keeps him occupied for at least an hour I just put a scoop of his normal kibble inside and acts as his 'lunch' while I'm at work. My dog doesn't seem to be stimulated by the Kong toys where you can't see the treats so the fact he can hear, see and smell the kibble rolling around inside is irresistible to him.
I would definitely recommend this product.
Purdey's new Tug-a-Jug is a replacement for her old one that she has loved with a passion for several years. It is her favourite 'toy' and she regularly finds where I have hidden it, brings it to me and looks so sad that I have to put biscuits in it. She then happily carries it off and spends far too little time extracting the biscuits! It is also great obedience training as she knows 'fetch' and 'give' because I practised first with her jug and now happily retrieves her dumbbell.
It is the best 'toy' that I have ever come across.
We bought the large one for our Border Collie when she was a pup, as the smaller ones weren't available at the time and we were recommended to get the larger one for her to "grow into". The only complaint I have with this is that my dog gets carried away and swings it around wildly! As it is made of hard plastic, I have bruises on my shins and a bit of corner plaster damage from her flinging it about. Consequently, we have relegated it to outdoors; however, that isn't where she needs the entertainment most.
