Dirty Dog Puzzle


The difficult Dirty Dog Puzzle is the perfect way to challenge the mechanical side of your brain.

The objective is to remove the shuttle.

This difficult puzzle is a bone to worry for even the most rabid puzzle fans. Even a former US president was bitten by this puppy; click through the images to see the solution request that we received from the White House.

The puzzle comes packaged in a cute drawstring bag with information about the design and the goals.


Tavern Puzzles are reproductions of a type of puzzle traditionally forged by blacksmiths to amuse their friends at country taverns and inns. These puzzles are hand-crafted and individually assembled. Each puzzle is mechanical in nature: the object is to remove one piece. Neither force nor tricks are needed; old-fashioned problem solving will do it.
