The reason I'm getting rid of mine is due to LoLa figuring them out in under 30 seconds.

I use the pyramid and wobblers. The tornado does okay but empties pretty quickly. Otherwise they are really just too easy.

Sometimes something as simple as pouring breakfast in a box inside of a box inside of a box is a great time killer for dogs.

Yes, my dogs learned to just pick the whole things up and drop them.

This x1000. Put some food in a box, wrap in in duct tape or packing tape, then that inside another box, repeat until you run out of boxes.

I made the mistake of loading the food into one where Bimmer could see me doing it when he was a pup. After that he'd just look for the load slot and unscrew the plug

It takes some time but I'll buy yoshi those rope toys and then I'll untie them and loosen it up enough to shove kibble into the knots and rope part

The only thing is you do need someone to help to get it back tight.

I'm so sorry about your knee. Hopefully, someone can help you out with walks and such. You've been given some great ideas. I can't really add a thing. But I sure do like the idea of teaching him to bring you things. Good luck with the recovery.
