“MICE” is a varied dexterity game for dogs or other small animals (such as cats, rabbits or ferrets). With this, you can stimulate their mental activity by providing them with an alternative and appropriate activity. The game has a difficulty grade of 1-3 Paws (on a scale of 1 – easy to 4 – very difficult). The letters are formed of the individual pieces. These cover openings in which the dry treats are hidden as motivation for the pet.
The design of this game features a variety of obstacles that the pet must solve in order to get to the hidden rewards. By placing pieces (cylinders that can be ordered in our webshop) in the openings, parts of the letters are blocked, and the grade of difficulty is increased.
This game trains your pet’s concentration and dexterity, and encourages its natural instincts of curiosity, drive to play and sense of smell. The many varieties of settings this game has means it can be used with beginners as well as advanced players.
How to play
Step 1: Hide as many treats as you like in the openings beneath the movable parts and cover these.
Step 2. Encourage your dog to start searching. For instance, you could show it where a treat is waiting for it.
Step 3. The animal reaches the treats by having pushed the movable parts aside and exposed the openings.
Be patient, show your dog how the game works and encourage the animal to search. This way you can make sure that your darling pet will enjoy playing together with you and solve the task correctly. This strengthens the dog’s confidence.
Never let your pet play unsupervised, and intervene if it starts to chew pieces of the game. Regularly check the pieces for any damage such as splinters. Clean by wiping with a damp cloth, and do not use abrasive cleaners.
“MICE” is made of certified wood covered in a water-based varnish that is not harmful to humans and animals. Please keep the game dry and free of water, as the wooden pieces may swell otherwise. Use only dry treats for playing this game.
Intelligence games significantly contribute to providing a dog with a meaningful and appropriate activity that challenges and improves its natural instincts. They strengthen the bond between a pet and its owner and remove many behavioral problems (such as separation anxiety, aggression or frustration).
“MICE” is not a toy for children!
