Easy to clean, the Dog Casino by Nina Ottosson is an activating, ingenious game for you and your dog or cat.
The dog looks for treats by pulling out the flaps in different directions. In each flap there is a compartment where the treat can be hidden. Increase the degree of difficulty by locking the flaps using the bone-shaped pegs on top.
Begin by placing treats in all the flaps that can be pulled out. Allow the dog to watch as you put in the treats. The first few times you can make it a little easier for your dog by not pushing the flaps all the way in, so that the dog can smell and see a little of the treat. Try to get the dog to push the flap with its nose or paw in order to pull it out.
Once the dog has begun to understand how the flaps work, you can make it more difficult by pushing the flaps all the way in before the dog begins looking for the treats.
Increase the degree of difficulty... The next step is to lock some of the flaps using the pegs on the top. The dog then has to learn how to lift up the pegs in order to pull out the flaps. A tip is to place a treat under a peg. Once the dog has understood how the pegs works all the flaps can be locked.
If the dog tries to bite the game or the pegs, place your hand over it and stop the game. Once the dog has calmed down, allow it to try again. If the dog wants to bite repeatedly, teach it how to work using only its paw. If the dog instead wants to jump on the game and use its paw too violently, teach it to work with its nose. A good tip is to place the Dog Casino on a stool which is adapted to the size of the dog and attach a piece of string to the flaps which the dog then needs to pull in order to open the flaps.
The idea is for you and your dog/cat to have a pleasant and rewarding time together, which enhances your relationship. You show. The dog/cat looks, listens and learns. Praise it when it does things right. Together you will have fun!
