1. Here we prefer clarity to agreement. Obviously not everyone is going to agree on a topic; here we prefer to talk out our differences in a respectful manner to ensure mutual understanding and respect. 2. Read the Stickies and Announcements. Each sub-forum may have specific rules which trump the Forum Rules in cases where there may be conflicting information. Read the rules of each board before you post so that you are clear on the expectations of the staff. 3. Respect ALL Staff and Admins. These people volunteer of their time and MUST be respected as well as their word adhered to. They are responsible for maintaining a free, open, clear and organized forum. Anyone found to be openly undermining any official ruling by a staff member will be warned. 4. Signatures: One picture only and no links. Images: To keep the forum looking neat and tidy, we ask that members insert just one picture only in their signatures. The picture should be no more than 200x500 pixels and should be of an appropriate subject, for example, your dogs and their names. Should you need assistance creating an appropriate signature, please PM an Admin and we would be happy to help! This is to ensure that signatures remain a welcome addition to our forum instead of a cumbersome distraction. Links: Hyperlinks in signatures--unless to a personal blog or photo stream of your dogs (like Flckr or Piscasa, for example)--are strictly prohibited. Please PM a staff member with any questions or concerns regarding this rule.
My mother-in-law shared this video on FB or a puzzle toy I may try to build for Kenzi. My only concern is that she might not have the patience for it. I figured I would share it with all of you in case some hadn't seen it before. I never know how far stuff travels on FB.
I think Bode would love this. He absolutely loves his Kong Wobbler, and I think this is the same idea.

I actually saw that and thought I should try to make that for my dogs. I have a puzzle toy and my aussie and aussie husky pick up the "top cover" piece that hides the treat eats the treat and then chews on the cover piece. Now Bourbon he looks at it and does the toy but so fast then looks at me like I am an A$$ for being so lame and then pouts while looking for a chew toy! Let me know if anyone does this and I so want to try. (it will probably come down to if I feel like trying or if I ask my wood worker father to do it for Xmas!)

We don't really drink soda so we don't have those kinds of bottles around the house but we drink lots of bottled water so maybe those would work. My husband dabbles in carpentry and loves to tinker so I'm sure he'd love to make something like this for Layla!

I figured if I made it I would probably do each bottle at a different difficulty level by puting the dowel down farther in the bottle to make an easier one for them to flip just to get their interest since Kenzi is the type if it takes too long she will just give up (and yes, maybe destroy when I'm not looking) so one easy one to get her going then the other a little harder (mounted higher in bottle).

That is a great idea you could also make the hole larger or smaller so that the spin is different or weight the bottom of the bottle a bit would change the difficulty too!

Hey guys, I saw this post on Friday and said I need to make this for Ellie so I grabbed some wood laying around my parents house and put one together. I think it's now become her favorite game since she lays by it once I put it away. She's too smart though so the difficulty needs to be increased. At one point, she laid down, flipped the bottle over with her head where the bottle then rested upside down against her and all the treats came out. I will try and post some pictures later today. Thanks for the awesome idea for the toy.
