    I saw this on a facebookpage a while ago and finally decided to see if my dogs would like this.
    So what did I use?
    A small plastic bottle(500ml), a piece of string/a small stick/(or in my case) knitting needle, treats small enough to fit into the bottle and easily fall out and ofcourse a dog:D
    We punched two holes in the bottle so the string/stick/knitting needle would fit through it.
    I had some difficulty finding the right balance hight, the first bottle had hole quite high up and it was harder to tip over for the dog, so I put that one aside for when they get the hang of it.
    The holes in the second bottle were too low, so the bottle tipped over by itself, so we taped a small bolt under the bottom.
    And then the fun started! To teach the dogs how to get the treat out of the bottle.
    In the end I want my boyfriend to make a stand for the set up, so I won't have to hold the needle myself and add a plastic cup(one of those hard plastic ones) and maybe another bottle.
    So here is the vid, so you can see what I'm talking about:ROFLMAO:
