While we love buying gifts to family and friends for the holidays, one of our absolute favorite things is shopping for our four-legged friends, especially if a certain present can make our lives a little easier as well.

So, when we first learned about Fable Pet’s new toy, The Game, our interest was immediately piqued. The device is a new way to feed and exercise your dog as an interactive distraction that lasts over thirty minutes. The toy holds up to two cups of food (or just treats, if you prefer) and was created to mimic the experience of hunting prey. Per the website, The Game is also “a great way to help treat anxiety and boredom by providing interactive entertainment.” We could all use some of that right now.

The best part? This toy has a silicone exterior, which means it makes practically no noise when being used by your pet. Yup, that means all of us working from home with furry coworkers or caring for rambunctious kids can enjoy a few moments sans-pet distractions. Oh, and did we mention it’s dishwasher safe?

Of course, we needed to try one out for ourselves. Check out our experience below.

The Game retails for $55 and comes in a variety of colors including green, navy, light grey and purple. It’s important to note, however, that the toy is currently only available for preorder (which isn’t surprising considering one sells every eight minutes).
