A challenging and fun game for
you and your active pet
You and your cat or dog will
love playing with the Dog/Cat Twister by Nina Ottosson.
The Dog Twister was
designed for you and your dog or cat to have an enjoyable and fun time
together. Your dog or cat will learn to look for treats by moving one
block after another around in a circle in different directions. There are
hollows under the blocks where treats can be hidden. Once they understand the
game, the level of difficulty can be increased by locking the blocks in
position with pegs in holes around the upside of the game. Your dog or cat will
learn to lift these pegs in order to be able to move the blocks and find the
treats. You can also hide treats under all the pegs. Start by locking some of
the blocks. Later when your pet has understood how it works, you can lock all
the blocks. The pegs can also be placed sideways in order to make it easier for
your dog or cat to get hold of them.
It is possible to teach your dog
or cat words like: wait, go ahead, go back, find it, sit etc. while you are
playing. Enriches your relationship with your pet and together you will have
plenty of fun!
The first time you place treats in all the hollows, let your pet be present and
watch. Place the blocks so that some treats can be seen between some blocks.
Tell your dog or cat to "go ahead" and allow them to try and find the
treats by themselves. If your pet does not understand, point with your finger
to a treat in a hollow. Praise your pet immediately when they do things right. When
your pet has understood what to do, you can hide a different number of treats
each round, and it depends on your cat or dog how many rounds you manage to do
in a certain time.
If your pet tries to bite the game or the pieces, then put your hand over it
and stop the game. When your pet has calmed down you can tell it to go ahead
and let them try again. If your pet repeatedly wants to bite, then teach them
to work only with their paws.
As with the Dog Spinny, for a variation with the game, mix some meaty dog or
cat food with water, pour some of the mixture in the hollows, put the game in
the freezer and let it set. Perfect for hot days or when your pet needs
some extra activity. Strict supervision is required.
Do not let the dog or cat chew or bite the toy, only play with it together with
your dog/cat, do not leave the dog or cat unattended, the dog or cat must not
play with or chew the blocks. Put away when the game is over. Designed for dogs
and cats, and not for children.
