The Buster Activity Mat Task Mouse Trap allows you and your dog to work interactively and to challenge and stimulate your dog mentally at the same time.
The Mouse Trap task is designed to be used with the basic Buster ActivityMat (not included), and is a task where smaller pockets with a ‘tail’ can be inserted into the bigger pockets from both ends. The task is attached to the mat by means of 4 press studs on the back of the Mouse Trap. You can hide treats in the pockets to reward your dog when they solve the puzzle, and there are 3 ways you can set the task up, depending on how difficult you want to make things:
- The task is attached to the mat with 4 press studs.
- The task is attached to the mat with one small pocket inserted into the bigger pockets from one side.
- The task is attached to the mat with several small pockets inserted into the bigger pockets from one or more sides.
