We believe that dogs may be as discerning as humans when it comes to musical preference.
Pet's Piano presents your pet with a new challenge. Unlike in the flat board puzzles where the dog or cat moves tiles with its nose or paw to get the reward, it is required to work vertically and horizontally to get the treats in this new game. The game trains concentration and skill and boosts its natural instincts of curiosity, a drive to play and a sense of smell.
Eight wooden pipes in which the treats can be hidden will drop off their content as a reward to the pet when pushed down. At the exact moment on the xylophone, the sound will be generated. The pet is "playing" its song! The puzzle can be varied in regards to the difficulty level. To make it more challenging for your dog, place pegs in the row below the pipes, and the player needs to remove them first so the tubes can be pushed down.
How to play:
Step 1: Place a number of treats in pipes
Step 2: Encourage your pet to push pipes down
Step 3: Praise your furry friend each time it manages to get the treats
Step 4: Place treats in the row below tubes and cover them with respective pegs. Encourage your pet to remove the pegs to get the rewards.

Never let your dog play with puzzle toys unsupervised, especially if your dog has a history of excessive power chewing. Intervene when your dog starts to chew on pieces of the game. Check regularly for damage such as splinters and chips. Swallowing of any foreign object can be a choking hazard or form an obstruction in their bowel. Supervised play will help toys last longer, and most importantly, keep your dog safe. Always remove the toy from playtime if pieces begin to break off.
Use only dry treats when playing. If your puzzle has wood components, please keep game dry and free of water as the wooden parts may swell otherwise. You may do a simple wipe with antibacterial wet wipes. For non-wood puzzles, hand wash with pet-safe detergent, rinse clean and air dry.
