Hi,

looking at getting one of those mental training aids like a box the dog has to work out how to get into it to get at the treat. Are they are waste of time and money?

If you're talking about the hinge we call treat balls they are great. In my opinion a much better way of feeding a puppy or dog than out of a bowl as they actually have to work for their food. And it keeps them busy and quiet! Merc has a few different ones and he gets one each morning with his kibble for the day. It did take a while for him to work out that there was food involved. You might find you need to spend some time teaching him what to do - but worth it in the long run.

We have a buster cube for Darwin and he loves it! You can change the "difficulty" to let out more or less pieces of kibble.

The one I've seen is a wooden box with 4 different doors to it, one you have to open like a musical box, one has to be slid, the other pawed so that it flips. etc £20.00 doesn't seem too bad if it occupies his brain for a while..
