Enrichment Puzzle Plait Toy

My Puzzle Plait is an interactive toy that you can use to provide your dog with mental stimulation and foraging fun.

This easy-to-play brain game features roomy “treat pockets” along the supersized length of the plait.

Simply insert your dog’s favourite treats into the pockets or between the plait folds and watch them enjoy sniffing out the goodies.

Enrichment Benefits:

This enrichment activity mimics the natural predatory behaviour of “dissecting prey” and provides a satisfying and appropriate outlet for dogs who love to pull stuffing out of toys.

  • Slow Feeding: Fill multiple pockets with treats or dry food to aid slow feeding. The more treats you hide, the longer the foraging experience.
  • Bonding Games: Initiate playtime by dragging, tossing or hiding the plait for chasing, finding and retrieving games.
  • Play: Provide independent playtime for dogs who enjoy pouncing, parading, wrestling and thrashing their soft toys around.
  • Mental Stimulation: Hide different treat types within the to engage your dog in novel smells, tastes and textures. This provides them with extra sniffing opportunities while they work their brain to extract them all.

A versatile toy for your enrichment toolkit!

Size: Approx. 80cm-1m long

Getting Started: It’s best to start with long treats (e.g. sprats, carrot sticks etc.) Poke these out of the pockets so your dog can easily extract them. You can then gradually try a few smaller treats concealed within the pockets. Ensure your dog doesn’t try to chew through the fabric to get to the treats – if they find concealed treats too challenging, revert to the easy extractions.

Handmade

Limited colour batch ~ please allow 2-5 working days for dispatch.

Please note, the dog pattern is less visible on the plait than the snuffle ball. There are multiple breeds featured on the pattern, so hopefully you’ll get to see some cute faces but I can’t guarantee a particular breed being visible.

    My dog absolutely loves her plait. She uses it every night to decompress and runs upstairs to get it for me so I can pop some of her food into it. If I forget she very quickly reminds me that this is a daily part of her bedtime routine. Along with her snuffle ball one of the best toys I bought.

    I received an email from Calm Dog Games and was intrigued by the idea of this Puzzle Plait. I watched the video and KNEW that this would be the type of dog puzzle that my dog might enjoy! Needless to say I bought the Puzzle Plait which arrived very quickly and I can honestly say that my dog absolutely loves this plait! It keeps her very happily occupied as she slowly locates each of the treats hidden around the plait and her tail never stops wagging! I would definitely recommend this Puzzle Plait which genuinly enriches and lengthens my dog’s enjoyment of treats!

    Amazing toy ! It’s a huuuugec, chunky, soft tug toy that also looks aesthetically pleasing. Ollie loves to rest his chin on it when he sleeps and follows me around the house with it to play tug. My fav way to use it though is as enrichment, hiding treats in it. I sometimes add them without him seeing me so it’s a nice surprise for him when he picks it up. Don’t regret this purchase whatsoever, super happy with it.
