Tristan, Greg and Fred of TGiF Design along with the assistance of Dr. Sophia Yin, have designed The Foobler (food + tumbler), an automatic self-reloading puzzle feeder for dogs. They are looking to take things to the next level with their Kickstarter project.
A dog’s natural instinct is to hunt and forage for food. It keeps their brain and body active and engaged. Puzzle feeders are designed for that purpose but they must be refilled after every single use. The Foobler is an automatic self-reloading puzzle feeder with 6 timer activated pods. Its like having 6 puzzle toys in one, that deliver a full day’s worth of regular kibble or treats for them to enjoy. There are many pet puzzle toys and time release feeders available, however, nothing has filled the product gap between the two. The Foobler enables controlled feeding because it eliminates overfeeding in a single meal, or worse, over-filled bowls left out for continuous snacking.
Additionally, the designers hope to add Bluetooth capability into the Foobler experience with a new stretch goal.
The campaign runs through Jan 27, 2014 and delivery is estimated for April 2014.
