Puzzle Dog Toy "Where is the Fruit Alfred the Whippet?"

Puzzle Dog Toy "Where is the Fruit Alfred the Whippet?"

£29.00

New! The beautiful Dogsnug Puzzle Dog Toy will give you hours of fun with your beloved pet. We love playing with our dogs, and this one is perfect to keep our pups occupied. Our new toy is fun to play, but it also helps to develop your hound's intelligence: in order to reach the fruits inside she must work out how to get them out of Alfred the Whippet. Suitable for dogs of all sizes.

The toys is strong and resilient: Alfred is sewn with strong overlocked seams to avoid being ripped apart and the Fruits are hand crocheted which gives stretch to the toy when being grabbed. The filling is encased in an extra pillow of overlocked fabric to give the toy an extra layer of protection.
The materials used to make Alfred and the Fruits are 100% recycled and upcycled, see 'Materials' for more info

We like to help our Kai the whippet solve the puzzle by whispering: "Where's the fruit?"

How to use

 Simply fill up Alfred with the fruits inside and watch your pup try to get them out. The fruits have either a squeaker or crinkle material - your choice. You can start the game again by either filling Alfred up again or by hiding the fruits around your place for your pup to find them. *We like hiding the odd dry treat inside Alfred for a more thorough search by our Kai : )

*Please make sure you supervise your dog when playing with Alfred and the Fruits : )

    Is your shop secure?

    I’m not very good with measurements

    If you click on the size chart you can find the standard measurement charts and an easy to follow diagram showing how to measure your dog for a coat. However, if you still a little unsure, you are most welcome to contact us and we will be happy to arrange a Skype meeting to help you measure your VIP (very important pup).

    How do i know that the colour I see on the screen is the same colour of the product?

    That’s a tricky one, as it depends on your screen calibration. This said, we try to make a vivid description of the colours when we talk about our products. If this still keeps you guessing, we are happy to send you a set of fabric samples so you can make a much more informed choice.

    Will it fit right?

    Our designer and pattern cutter has years of experience in the fashion industry, and is obsessive with getting the fit right. Each size has been tried and tested on lots of dogs of different breeds to make sure that the shape responds to their body peculiarities. This is specially important if you have a sighthound or a dachshund as their body is seriously different to that of other dogs.

    How do I know if the quality is really good?

    Your trust in our products is very important to us, and we think quality is at the core of trust. To guarantee a high level of quality, we test every product in a variety of materials in order to chose the best performing ones. Although this is a costly process, it gives us the piece of mind that you will be receiving a product that will not let you down.

    It’s a bit expensive

    We want you to enjoy a high quality product which is unique and will last, and unfortunately this does not come cheap. All our products are hand-made in England and we pride ourselves of paying a fair retribution to the talented craftsmen we collaborate with. We only work with high quality materials, picked for their high performance and durability. We also make sure that we prototype and test our products until we are satisfied that the quality of material and of finishes is excellent.

    My dog likes to play rough, will the coats be strong enough to last?

    The Dogsnug coats protects the skin of your dog from sharp branches and even teeth marks. We know because we put these to test with our Kai who is quite a rough player. Being a whippet, his favourite game with his other whippet friends is to chew each others bodies whilst running at lightning speed. The outer layer of our coats are made of ripstop, a material designed not to rip if caught on a branch or any other sharp object. To top this up the ripstop is bonded to a 3D spacer mesh which structure is designed to bounce and move when stressed, giving the extra protection you need for your very special pooch.The strap is elastic so it keeps the coat in place whilst allowing mobility and stretch.

    The sizing charts are only a reference, as every dog is beautifully unique. The charts are based on research on different dog shapes, and we have developed three styles of products to suit them all (Classic, Sighthound and Dachshund). The products not only take into account the shape of the dogs but also the way they run and play. For this reason the trims we use for different breeds may vary.

    For most dogs the most important measurement is the back length. However if your dog is a wide chested dog(think Boston Terrier, Bulldog...) then the main measurement should be the Chest Width.

    If you are unsure about how to measure, please scroll down to our 'How to Measure' illustration or Contact us with your query and we will be more than happy to help. 

    Dogsnug now offers a dog measuring service online completely free of charge. A professional dog tailor will meet you on Skype or Facetime (your choice) and help you measure your VIP (very important pup). Get your appointment now!
