Our Product Review: Thanks to Anipet Animal Supplies for sending this product our way. This is the 3rd or 4th dog food dispensing product we’ve reviewed and this one was definitely the trickiest for Goose. Since he either gets fed outside in the yard with his food thrown everywhere or outside with his Kong Wobbler, he’s gotten very used to smacking that with his face and paws to have it roll and release kibble – so he used that same technique with the dog casino. After the face smacking, casino flipping, and paw slapping didn’t result in any food being dispensed, he resorted to picking the entire thing up in his mouth and flinging it around the room, which did do the trick, but definitely wasn’t how he was supposed to do it. And this was after I tried showing him how it all worked. He did eventually get all the food out and it did take him a good 5 to 10 minutes to do so but I think he quite has the patience to handle this since he loves his food so much. If he was smaller and could smack it around and not flip it around the kitchen it may have worked better. One thing we can say for sure is it’s VERY DURABLE and TRICKY and does actually what it’s supposed to do, challenge your dog! After a few go’s at it he has gotten better but still resorts to putting it in his mouth and flinging it. Maybe he’s not as smart as we all thought…
