I wanted to share our experiences with Finn's new toy. I bought this IQube after some of you fine folks suggested Finn's brain needed a little stimulating while we were at work. My one concern about buying it was that some of the reviewers said it was too easy for their dogs, but I figured we'd give it a try...
We introduced Finn to the game, showed her each ball, that they all squeaked and that we were putting them in the cube. We did this about three times.
So, at first, Finn just brought it around from room to room.
Then she gnawed at the openings where she was supposed to be
digging for the squeaky balls.
Then she tried to push the balls out of the slots instead of trying to pull them out.
Then she almost gave up.
Then at last, a small victory! One of the balls is out. I can't really foresee Finn ever trying to get the other balls free while she can squeak and play with one. I even started to hide the one ball she got out so she would go dig for the others, but she caught on to me. She loves the munching and the digging in something new though and she hasn't destroyed it yet, so everyone is pleased!
