The Dog Brick has been designed by Nina Ottosson as an interactive game for you and your dog to play together. You hide the treats in the depression under the sliding discs and then let your dog look for the goodies by trying to push the discs to the side with their paw or nose to expose their treat. You may choose to put treats in one, several or all of the compartments depending on the dog’s experience and enthusiasm for the game.

The Brick has many variables to increase the level of difficulty as the dog’s skills improve. The bones have a small hole to allow the scent of the treat to pass through and encourage your dog to use their extraordinary sense of smell. With a little practice, your dog will soon learn to dislodge the bones and slide the covers to reap the hidden rewards.
Tips: Mix some dog food with water, pour some of the mixture in the hollows, put the game in the freezer and let it set. This is perfect for hot days or when and your dog need some extra activity.
Important: Do not let your dog chew or bite the Brick. Only play with it when you're together with your dog and never leave the Brick unattended. Make sure you put it away and out of reach when the game is over. The Brick is for dogs of all ages and sizes and is NOT a toy for a child.
