Logic puzzles require you to think. You will have to be logical in your reasoning.


Puzzle ID:#24181

Difficulty:** (1.28)
Submitted By:ragsdaleam****




7 dogs were boarding at the local Pet Lodge. Each dog was in a separate run, all in a single row. One of the employees left the cages unlocked and the dogs have all gotten out of their runs. She needs to put each of them back in the right cage, but this is all she remembers. Help her get them in the right cages, and QUICK!

Dogs: Beau, Duke, Fluffy, Lady, Princess, Rover, and Spike

1. Spike doesn't like other dogs much, so he was on one of the ends.

2. Princess was somewhere to the left of Beau.

3. Rover was in the third run from the right.

4. The only dog between Fluffy and Lady was Princess.

5. Duke was directly to the left of Lady.

seriouslly i had to use pencil and paper cuz im more visual then mental when it comes to pictures go figure
keep these teasers commin it might just raise my brain power
Jul 01, 2005

Nice puzzle. Not too difficult. A good way to waste a couple of minutes.
Jul 02, 2005

Great! My only criticism is how can you figure out which end spike is on? I got all correct except spike.
Jul 02, 2005

fun one to figuere out. i did it on paper.
Jul 02, 2005

Good one. I put it on paper & the pieces fell in place tighter than a chain link fence. Good clues. Good one:
Jul 08, 2005

good job,not 2 hard but not that the others i had to use paper and a pencil
Aug 02, 2005

It's too late in the night for me to drag out the pencil and paper. I just gave up trying and shot straight for the answer.I come back later and figure it out.
cause I already forgot what the answer was.!!!! Good one though. I like teasers that make me think.
Aug 02, 2005

nice one. i too had to use paper and pencil! i liked the clue about princess being in between lady and fluffy.i noticed i could switch the two outside dogs so duke could be next to lady.keep these coming i actually like spending time solving riddles using paper and pencil.
Aug 02, 2005

i'm sorry...did not get this one . You mean you actually needed paper and pencil to figure this one? No wonder i did not get it. oh well good teaser anyway...even tho i am lost
(user deleted)
Aug 02, 2005

fair enough, at least it made me use my mind for a while though, thanks...good job
Aug 02, 2005

nice teaser, it was fun to do
Aug 02, 2005

god, i feel so stupid . . . . i tried to make a logic grid with notepad . . . i just gave up because i didn't have the patience to deal with it! oh well! good teaser, but this should have come with the logic grid solver thing most logic puzzles have . . .
Aug 02, 2005

Gr8 teaser I liked it
Aug 02, 2005

Aug 02, 2005

nice and easy..good job
Aug 02, 2005

kool beanz!!! i finally got 1 rite! lik the others i used pencil and paper i lik the kind of riddles that make me think!! please make more of these!(a lot more)
Aug 02, 2005

These are usually hard because there's not enough info is given but I got this one!!
Aug 02, 2005

I reached for the pencil twice, but held my ground. Then I reached for it again and solved it! Very enjoyable!
Aug 02, 2005

good one
Aug 02, 2005

That was a good one!-I actually got it right!!!!
Aug 02, 2005

that was a good one! it took me a while to figure it out!!!
Aug 02, 2005

You guys who said this one was hard or you had to use paper and pencil have to be kidding. I solved this one in my head in less than one minute. Way too easy.
Aug 02, 2005

I used pencil and paper, so it was easy, but I like it!
Aug 02, 2005

YAY!! Been gone for awhile & this is the 1st one I have been able to completely solve since I got back. Thanks & keep 'em coming.

Aug 02, 2005

Very easy. I think the "Princess is to the loft of Beau" clue is redundant.
Aug 02, 2005

Aug 02, 2005

you guys are dorks
Aug 02, 2005

Yey!!! I did it! Goodone...I enjoyed it because It made me work but it wasn't so hard that I couldn't get it...I enjoy being right!!! Thanx

Aug 02, 2005

I got this one right! YAY~!!
i like this teaser its so0o0o cool
not to eZ not to hard
Aug 02, 2005

Good one.. easy enough if you use paper. I can't hold seven names in my head (ordered or not)
Aug 03, 2005

Yeah I got it, and quick too. This is a great teaser and it made me think, but not to hard. I loved it.
Aug 04, 2005

easy but fun. enjoyed it! Thanks!
Dec 13, 2005

no need 4 hint #2...easy enough even w/out pen n paper...
Aug 03, 2006

Thanx. Kennel madness was very logical.D,L,F,R,P,B,S., all in a row.
Aug 03, 2006

I went with the old P&P (pencil and paper) crowd for this one. Those dogs gave my brain a run for its money. Good teaser.
Aug 03, 2006

I have to agree on clue #2 being totally useless. Still, it is a good teaser for P&P users. I figured it out in my head in just a few minutes...but that is me.
Aug 03, 2006

GOOD CLUES! You didn't make it impossible to solve.
Aug 03, 2006

I don't have the patience for this kind of teaser. Maybe next time.Good teaser, clear directions.Good job.
Aug 03, 2006

I also thought at first: "No, I'm not going to get all riled up trying to figure this one out." Then, I said: "Well, let me give it one real try. I will pretend that I'm a genius, and that I can see all this in my mind instead of writing it down."

And, I GOT IT! yay!!! yay!!! yay!!!

That was a good one, and just easy enough, but not way too easy. Thanks very much!
Aug 03, 2006

I didn;t have enough time and pa tience to do it, sorry
Aug 03, 2006

Good, I got right away (with paper and pencil of course).
Aug 03, 2006

Nice teaser! I can usually figure out these logic problems with pen and paper. Life's logic problems are a different story!
Aug 03, 2006

It should have been in the "Logic-grid" category.
Aug 03, 2006

My ten yearl old helped me. She says this is a fun one tho I did not get it all the way. Thanks for the fun!
Aug 03, 2006

Hey, i'm the 50th comment! woohoo!
I don't like teasers where i have to write stuff down, but maybe i'll do it later, i didn't look at the answer! hahaha!
Aug 03, 2006

good one love it!
Aug 03, 2006

Challenging but not too hard!
Fun! Nice teaser.
Aug 03, 2006

yup, used pencil and paper (it's a test of logic, not memory!)
yup, easy so I didn't have to write much
yup, clue #2 isn't needed
yup, fun, because I like these
(yup, I'm a dork)
Aug 03, 2006

These are my favorite types of puzzles.
Aug 03, 2006

I found clue #2 unnecessary, too.

Sure wish you could have put the METHOD for the solution, as well, just for completeness sake.
Aug 03, 2006

"Yup" some people can do'em in their heads!
Aug 03, 2006

Good puzzle, These are my favorites. got a little confused as to my left or their left, but got the right answer anyway. Thanks!
Aug 03, 2006

Yay, 58th person to comment. Same as above I found clue 2 to be redundant. And for those who have issues with the logic-

The only dog to be between L & is P, which means somewhere along the line there is either LPF or FPL. As D is to the immediate left of L it can't be FP(D)L, so it would need to be DLPF. Knowing that R is 3rd from right, there's only one side of R that has four slots, so we have DLPFR??. S is on the end so it must be DLPFR?S (because if S where on the other end it would then move R). So by process of elimination - borne out by Q2, the correct order has to be DLPFRBS.

Mind you if you've read this far in the comments I'm guessing I'm not telling you anything you didn't already work out.
Aug 03, 2006

I like these. Can do them in my head in the morning, but usually am not seeing them until after 6 P.M. so I rely on paper and pen.
Aug 03, 2006

Easy Peasy. I did it in about 2 minutes. I did use a pen and paper though hehe
Aug 03, 2006

Took a lot of thinking . guess I should try paper. I like this and thought it was fairly hard.
Aug 03, 2006

not bad....was pritty easy
Aug 03, 2006

I got it! Keep these cumming please! I love them!
Aug 03, 2006

That was very cute and fun to do! Hey everyone....get over clue # 2!
Aug 04, 2006

Good one. I love logic puzzles. Being the total geek that I am, I didn't even attempt to work it out in my head but went straight to a classic logic grid whipped up in Excel. In retrospect, it was a little too easy for a grid, but hey, I got to make a grid. Yeah, I know, like I said, I'm a geek. Thanks for endulging my geekiness.
Aug 04, 2006

Nice stuff, quite easy and interesting. All you guys who solved this teaser without pencil and paper, hats off to you. I am getting too old to solve this type of teasers without P and P!
Aug 05, 2006

Not a bad one, no pencil or paper needed, several reads through the clues... but no notes. I did not read all the user comments, only a few, but in response to a some, im pretty sure there was only one answer... as opposed to multiple ones as some suggested.
Aug 05, 2006

Great Teaser Challenging Yet fun at the same time. Good Work!!!!!!!!!!
Aug 08, 2006

Yup, I completely agree with you!!!
Aug 08, 2006

Dog gone - no pun intended, ha ha, I got it with P & P of course, but I got it. Don't know if it was just luck or if my logic is getting better. Good job.
Aug 15, 2006

Good Teaser!
Aug 03, 2009

Nice morning logic teaser. Had to get out pen and paper, got it fairly quickly then.
Aug 03, 2009

Logic is pretty easy for me.
Aug 03, 2009

I love logic problems, and it was an easy one. I almost always use P & P on logic probs, and I don't apologize for that. I would love to see more of these. Thanks for a good start to my morning.
Aug 03, 2012

That was a tail wagger!
Aug 03, 2012

DOGone,I figured this one fairly easy.
Aug 03, 2012

i scetched this one out and it was easy and super fun
Aug 03, 2012

Lady, Princess, and Fluffy all had to be next to each other, with Duke to the left of lady - so that's 4 dogs fixed (heh) together. With Rover locked into the 3rd from the right spot, the only place for 4 consecutive dogs are 1-4.

So if spike were on the left, either Rover couldn't be 3rd from the right, or the duke-lady-princess-fluffy quartet would be broken.
Aug 03, 2012

I'm so confused!!!
Aug 03, 2012

To Riddlerman: If you number the spots 1 thru 7, Third from the right is spot number 5 - you don't place yourself at number 7 and then count back 3, you count spot 7 as number one on the right, spot 6 as number two on the right and spot 5 as number three on the right. Rover would be at spot 5. Now that I've thoroughly confused both of us, I have to say I enjoyed this teaser even though is was easy.
Aug 09, 2014

Am I the only one aside from donfrench who found this way too easy? The fourth and fifth clues alone tell you where four dogs in a row are (relative to each other) and the first and third clues place the rest with ease. As some have stated, the second clue isn't even necessary.
Aug 03, 2015

I do not usually do these and just make a remark and skip it all, but tonight I decided to give it a try and I got them all right. I am so proud of my self. Yaaay me!!
Aug 03, 2015

Pretty easy, but still lots of fun. I am curious how the person who said he only got Spike wrong manged that? If Spike is in the wrong place, than the do that belongs where you put Spike would also be wrong. It i impossible to have only one wrong.
Aug 03, 2015

That's my kind of puzzle! A tad easy, but.. something anyone can figure out it they put their mind to it.
Aug 03, 2015

The main thing is I got it. However also having relied on pen and paper for the solution, I didn't find this teaser as easy as the rating suggests. Worth the effort!
