This had the desired effect and stumped my labrador pup (5.5 mo), getting her thinking and working a bit harder than her other puzzles. I might have stepped it up too quickly with this one and should have started with the tabs all released - she got frustrated and pulled out some of the panels. Despite this it's still in working order and I'm hoping it wil lstand up to regular rotation. Love this whole range - wish there were more level 3 options!
