a great toy!!

Once upon a time, Lucy shared a cool toy with Mr Darcy and now Mr Darcy has kindly shared the toy with Lilly. It is the grandest toy:
the Buster Cube :

It is a great way to provide mental stimulation for a dog and seems like a super way to reinforce scent work. (and a good way to let an energectic pup burn up some extra energy!)

a small amount of food is place in the 'core' of the cube. there is a small opening thru which the dog can 'sniff' the kibbles and thru which the food will come out, given proper rotations of the cube. so, the dog is 'rewarded' for playing. Lilly rolls the cube all over the yard - using her nose and her paws - and as small kibbles fall out, she stops to sniff for them in the grass.

THANKS, LUCY!!!!! And, Stacy, you might as well go ahead and get one of these if Dee likes it, 'cos Lilly LOVES it!!

Mr Darcy loves the Buster Cube as well! It took him a while to figure it out but now he is really good at it.

Darcy will roll it around in our back yard for about ten minutes and then he will back track and find all of the treats. Then every time we go outside after that he follows the path that the buster cube went hoping to find more treats!!

Thanks Valerie!
