Dog Trubble

DogTrubble - Wood

A challenging game for the active dog.

The dog is to look for treats by moving several blocks round in a bendy track with only one opening, where the block can be lifted off and sweets will be found under the block…

The idea…

with Dog Trouble is that you and your dog will have a nice and enjoyable time together. The dog is to learn to look for treats by moving blocks around in a bendy track where there is only one opening, which is both start and finish. Treats are hidden under each block, and the treats can only be found when the dog has moved the block to the only opening in the game, where it has reached the goal and receives the treat as a reward. Teach the dog to understand words like: wait, go ahead, back off, find it, sit etc while you are playing. Enrich your relationship with your dog. You show. The dog/cat looks, listens and learns. Praise it when it does things right. Together you will have fun!


The first time you only use one block. Start by putting treats in the round open part at one end of the track, which is both start and finish. Let the dog be present to see when you hide the treat. Put the block over the treat and pull the block just a short distance into the track. Now let the dog try to move the block with its nose or paw back to start/finish where the block can be lifted up so as to reach the treat. If the dog does not understand, lift the block and show the treat and try again. Praise the dog as soon as it does things right. When the dog has understood how this game works, put treats under all the blocks and distribute blocks all over the game.

If the dog tries to bite the game or its parts, put your hand over it and stop the game. When the dog has calmed down you can say “go ahead” and let the dog try again. If the dog repeatedly wants to bite, teach it to work only with its paw. If, on the other hand, the dog wants to throw itself on the game and beat excessively with its paw, then teach it to work with its nose by putting the game on a stool/chair which is adapted to the size of the dog. This is also useful if the dog has an injured paw or is newly operated.

Increase the degree of difficulty…

If you wish to increase the degree of difficulty for the dog, move all blocks to the other side until you come to the stop…


Do not let the dog/cat chew or bite the toy. Play only together with the dog/cat, do not leave the dog/cat unattended. The dog/cat must not play or chew the blocks/parts. Put the game away when you have finished playing. Only for animals, it is not a toy for children.

Suitable for dogs and cats of all ages and sizes.
