Puzzle Toy Review: JW Treat Tower

The JW Pet Treat Tower by Petmate is a bobbing puzzle toy that is wonderfully adjustable and easy to clean. It comes in two different sizes, ours is the smaller one. The top unscrews and all the layers come off for easy cleaning. The opening in each layer can be adjusted to three different sizes, and the openings can be positioned anywhere around the circle.

I had originally passed over this toy because it looked non-adjustable and difficult to clean. I was pleasantly surprised to find that it came completely apart and was quite adjustable. Definitely not as simple as it looks!

Puzzle Toy Rating

Capacity: 3/5
I can fit about a cup of kibble in the smaller of the two sizes, but I have to do it carefully and quite a bit spills out.

Loading Speed: 1/5
Basically one kibble at a time.

Unloading Speed (standard dog): 5/5
It takes Annie forever to get all the treats out, but drops them often enough to keep her interested.

Unloading Speed (superdog): 4/5
The Treat Tower empties out a bit fast for Brisbane, even on the hardest setting.

Size: 4/5
At nearly a foot tall, the big one should be big enough for any dog. The smaller one is small enough for Ru to use

Durability: 4/5
This should hold up to pretty much anything short of a determined chewer.

Noise: 1/5
Hard heavy plastic on hardwood floors is pretty much the worst case scenario.

Locatability: 5/5
It doesn't fit under the couch, and nobody tries to carry it around so it doesn't go far.

Washability: 5/5
Comes completely apart for super easy cleaning.

Versatility: 5/5
The size options and ease of cleaning mean this toy can be used by a variety of species. We borrowed the Treat Tower from our friend Xhuuya the raven.

Total: 37/50
