(RENTAL) MENTAL ENRICHMENT PRODUCTS

Whether you have a dog, cat, hamster, or bird, having multiple and different enrichment options available at home for them can become a bit pricey, but it also uses up quite a bit of storage space!

On the other hand, it's important that we provide our little ones with new and different mental enrichment options regularly. And so we've now made it possible for you to rent different food puzzles, as you need.

Any discounts currently available will apply automatically when you add items to your cart. You can reserve the item(s) you want and pick it up/drop it off close to Square One

Ph.D. Food Puzzle #1 (Max 3 Wks Rental)

Ph.D. Food Puzzle #1 (Max 3 Wks Rental)

This is probably one of my favourite go-to food puzzles! Mainly because its level of difficulty is one you can play around with and make it super easy for your pooch, and through time make it as challenging as it's meant to be.

That's why we think it belongs in our top Ph.D. level! 3 weeks may not be long enough for most dogs, but it's a good start before swapping for another (to give your dog a break, let them miss it a little) and renting it again later on!

At its highest difficulty, you would lock as many of the white pieces as you want and your dog will need to first unlock them in order to move the green pieces with their paw or nose to get to the piece.

The unlocking mechanism is what's going to really put your dog's brain to the test, as not every dog will have enough strength in their paw to pull on them to unlock (you can semi-lock each piece for easier pulling).

Moderate Food Puzzle #4 (Max 3 Wks Rental)

Push to start! This is one of those food puzzles that I might recommend leaving out, for your dog to let you know that they're good and ready for some enrichment fun. You can use the button as a cue from your dog that they're hungry, or that they feel like engaging with you.

You can always take a break from it by putting the puzzle away, and hiding some treats in it for next time!

Challenging Food Puzzle #7 (Max 3 Wks Rental)

Challenging Food Puzzle #7 (Max 3 Wks Rental)

Your dog will have to move pieces aside to find where you've hidden their favourite treats. They can even use the buzzer button to let you know that they're ready to start, or that they're done finding the last piece you hid inside.

Break this puzzle into two activities. Before they get to figure it out on their own, present it to them as a prompting game, where they have to paw the button to get you to begin putting pieces inside the puzzle. Do this by rewarding them with a treat each and every time they touch the buzzer button.

Moderate Food Puzzle #10 (Max 3 Wks Rental)

This puzzle is also super light, and with few treats needed to make it fun, it makes for a very travel-friendly activity.
