I ordered a tug-a-jug dog toy for my sisters to try out this month. They both enjoy puzzle toys that dispense food or treats, which is why I figured they would enjoy this product. I don’t like food or treat puzzles, so it is all for my sisters!

Madison is still too young to read, but she really loved the gift guide as it was full of pictures. I think she might be getting ready to put together her Christmas list to send to everyone she knows, including Santa. In case you are planning on holiday shopping at Chewy.com, they are having a huge Black Friday Sale with some items up to 50% off.
Mom helped Bailie get started with the tug-a-jug. The instructions for setting it up are real simple, but only if you have thumbs.
- Unscrew the bottom of the jug, it is full of holes to let the scent out.
- Load the jug with treats or your dog’s kibble.
- Screw the lid back on and let your dog start playing for food!
We were expecting the crazy twosome to go wild about the tug-a-jug, but instead, they both sat there and studied it. Neither of them knew how to go about getting the treats out of that jug. The aroma has no problem wafting out, but they wanted the actual treats. Why did Mom have to lock the good stuff in the jug they wondered!
Madison thought she might be able to chew her way in. The nubby ball actually works to clean the dog’s teeth when they chew on it, but it didn’t cause the treats to come out.
Bailie was determined to get those treats out of the ball. She was frustrated, but would not give up. She spent a good half hour working to get all the treats out of the jug. No worries, Mom only put about twenty small treats in the jug and those would be eaten by both of my sisters.
Madison says the toy is fun, but she isn’t real food motivated so chewing on it was what she enjoyed. Bailie is pretty food motivated and says it is a good boredom buster for dogs. She smashed it around, tried to bite the tug-a-jug apart to no avail, so it is durable. If your pup enjoys food/treats, and puzzles, this might make the perfect holiday gift!
