The Treat Machine Challenge!!!!

My sister and BIL got the pups a treat machine for Christmas. I made this little video a few weeks ago about who figured it out first.

Petey vs Belle! The Treat Machine Challenge! LOL!

And then nothing too exciting, but I'll post them anyway. The girls at Petsmart today after their back to back training classes. Jelly learns a lot faster by walking with Belle, so I've been taking them there as much as possible for leash practice since it's been so cold outside lately. And it's good socialization for Jelly too. She's a little skittish there, but not bad at all! I haven't been brave enough to try walking with all three yet, but that's the next step, LOL!

Lol, I love them and the treat machine! I've been wanting to get one, do you know where they are available to buy? I was thinking that using one for Cody's dinner might slow him down when eating

I love their matching coats as well, too cute

That treat machine is really cool. Did Belle ever get it?
Beautiful dogs by the way

It was a Christmas present, so not sure where they got it from, but it's called The Yuppy Puppy Treat Machine. I googled for it and found it at Target online and a few pet places for $39, but then also saw it at Ebay and here for $27. I'd try googling for it I guess! Petey goes crazy for it and will just keep eating and eating, so I've been keeping it up high and out of reach. So poor Belle hasn't been able to practice it anymore to try to figure it out! I have to shut Petey in another room in order to let Belle play with it.

Rats! I'd like to see the Yuppy Puppy Treat Machine in action.

But I love the stills of Belle and Jelly! That last one, where Jelly is burying her head in her friend's side...I can see Belle and Jelly are really hitting it off!!

Jelly always looks so worried to me...I just wanna sidle up to her and ...

OMG!!!! That is the cutest video ever.

I loved it when you were trying to get their paws to push the lever down. The first time Petey did it I thought maybe it was just an accident but obviously not. How smart of him.

But then again, Belle knows she can have other's do it for her.

for Petey & Belle they're both very clever

I can just imagine my Cally with one of those
