DIFFICULTY LEVEL 3: With 24 hidden treat compartments, the Nina Ottosson Challenge Slider dog treat puzzle is one of our most challenging puzzles yet! Nina Ottosson treat puzzle games are a great way to engage your dog's mind with challenging and rewarding activity. The Challenge Slider will keep your dog´s mind busy with 24 treat compartments. In this game dogs must move each slider, one at a time, in different directions, to reveal hidden treats or food. Slide, treat, and repeat!
HOW TO PLAY: Place your dog's favorite treats or food in the compartments of the removable tray. Slide the tray back into the game. Supervise, show and encourage your dog to move sliders back and forth to seek treats. If your dog is too rough with his paws, place the game in your lap or on a stool, so that your dog can only use his nose to move the sliders. Let the games begin!
IT'S EASY TO FILL: Pull out the tray, fill compartments with treats or food, slide the tray back again. PLAYING RULES: Because it is a challenging game, we recommend that you play together, and teach your dog the rules of the game and how it works FUN FOR ALL DOGS: This puzzle is advanced, so it´s best suited for dogs who have played other games before, and have fine motor skills, regardless of age, size or breed.
FROZEN PUZZLE: Mix a little canned meat with water, pour some of the mixture in the tray´s compartments, or place a small piece of sausage or a tasty treat in each compartment, pour a little water, put the game in the freezer and let it set. This is perfect for dogs who need some extra activity. REDUCES DESTRUCTIVE BEHAVIORS: By keeping your dog's mind busy, treat puzzle toys can help reduce unwanted behaviors.
PLAY AND BOND: The Challenge Slider is a great way to bond with your dog while teaching basic training commands in a fun way.
MAKES FEEDING FUN: This treat puzzle can be used to feed your dog healthy treats or dry kibble – solving the food puzzle creates an engaging, slowed-down mealtime.
BPA, PVC & PHTHALATE FREE: Made with food-safe materials that you can trust for your dog. EASY TO CLEAN: To wash, simply remove all treats/kibble and hand wash with warm soapy water, rinse clean and dry. Fill again for more fun!

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.
