Start simple. Fill a couple of treat compartments and leave one or two open. Smear a little peanut butter on the game dog dogs that aren't initially interested.
Removable blocks can be used to increase or decrease difficulty level. Tie a string through the holes in the blocks to make it easier for your dog to remove. This is especially helpful for bulldogs and other short-nosed canines.
