the nina ottosson dog casino

It seemed a good time to try out our new Nina Ottosson toy today, as Penny was having kibble for her breakfast - boring stuff!
So we got the box out.

It's one of the hardest puzzles, level three, so we knew we'd have to take it in stages.

First I put the puzzle on the floor, taking out the little bones on top that stop the drawers underneath from moving in and out.

I let Penny see the drawers pulled fully out.

She watched with interest as I placed a piece of food in each little drawer.

And, last of all, I pushed the drawers in part-way, so she could see and smell the food.

I have a video clip of her trying it out, but it's very long and probably boring, to be quite honest. But I'm going to upload it here as a separate blog post, because I think it's worthwhile for anyone thinking of buying this toy. It's a warts-and -all look at how a dog approaches the task for the first time.
