Got this toy for our small-to-medium sized (35 lb) Aussie mix, and she loves it! She is quite smart and so mastered it quickly, but it keeps her entertained and she has to "work" for her food. She quickly learned to hold the blue "test tubes" upside down with her mouth, so the food would just pour in LOL! You will need to invest about 15-30 minutes to teach your dog how to use this. The instructions included which describe how to use are helpful too. Putting on the second test tube cap that is provided made the task a little harder because it limits the amount of kibble that can come out, thus prolonging the game and forcing her to actually spin the test tubes, which I like. Please note that I supervise my dog when playing with this toy, I do not think it would be good to leave your dog alone completely unsupervised as they might try to chew up the test tubes and they are obviously not meant to be durable chew toys. The toy was extremely easy to assemble and use. The only other improvement I could suggest is to glue down the white "legs" of the toy into the wooden base to provide more stability, but this has not affected our enjoyment of the toy thus far.

Please tell us about the quality of the product. Good quality, quite sturdy, easy to assemble. Could use something to hold down the white "legs" of the toy, but doesn't affect usage.
This toy is interesting and I wish my dog were more interested in it than she is in me. There are extensive instructions on how to train your dog to play with it but nothing about how to assemble it. It's fairly self-explanatory and much easier to assemble and less flimsy than its cousin the Gambling Tower (same manufacturer, Trixie.) So far my dog just gets bored with it before she gets any "tasty treats" out of it and just wants to play with me.
