Twist ‘n Treat is another food or treat dispensing toy. Not only is it a great way to make your dog work for a treat, it can be a good way to slow down a dog that bolts its food. It doesn’t hold as much as the Tricky Treat Ball or the Brake Fast Bowl, both of which I’ve written about before. With the Twist ‘n Treat, you screw the two pieces together making it easy to fill and easy to clean. You make it harder or easier to knock treats or kibble out depending on how tightly you screw it. If your dog doesn’t know what to do with it at first, make it easy for the food to fall out. Your pup will catch on quickly. They come in three different sizes. When we fill it, we hide it somewhere in the house for Saffron to find giving her a little more work to do. She loves it.
