Week of Christmas Giveaways Day #2: Cross Slider Review and Giveaway

A Week of Christmas Giveaways!
Today--Cross Slider

















I love Interactive toys. They give your dog a little challenge, while solving a puzzle to win a treat.  Kyjen sent us the Cross Slider toy to review. The toy works by hiding treats in a hollow ball, and placing it in the Cross Slider. The dog has to work the ball out of the tunnels with his paws and mouth.

Different dogs will do differently with this toy, depending upon their patience and puzzle solving skills. Let me just say upfront that Ike is still in puppy Kindergarten when it comes to puzzle solving.


 
Kelly is a quick learner. She used her paws to efficiently get at the toy, and even lifted it and dropped it with her mouth for maximum effect. The Cross Slider is durable, fun, challenging, and great for keeping your dog entertained for extended periods of time. Both dogs enjoyed it, and seemed to understand it. The Cross Slider appeals to all their senses--they can smell the treats, they can see the ball, they can feel the ball, and they can taste the treats. There would be a lot of repeat value in this toy.






Enter to win your choice of either the Cross Slider OR the Tennis Slider (reviewed tomorrow)!

  1. I live in a shoebox of a studio with no place for her to really play so winning this toy would be awesome especially in the winter when I am trying to find things to keep her busy

  6. Drago has so much energy. Toys can keep him busy while the winter weather keeps us inside. Any interactive toy would be great. He likes to use his brain and learn new things.

  10. I have five rescued Treeing Walker Coonhounds, and if you know hounds, they are very food motivated. Anything that makes them "work" for their food or treats is a good thing, especially for my Kyoko. Kyoko was nearly starved before I adopted her and while she is now downright chubby, she still acts likes she's starving when she eats.
