My dog was the official recipient of this house with resident Halloween characters. The directions suggested putting a treat in the house to entice the dog to pull out the little toys. Hah! My dog nosed around them to retrieve the treat. On the other hand, she loved the bat and cat when they were thrown down the hall. She retrieved them, shook them til they must have been very dizzy and then returned them to me to throw again. The cats, however, love mouseying their toys out of the house.
