About Outward Hound Puzzle Toys for Dogs

Healthy Playtime Problem Solving

Did you know that 15 minutes of mental exercise can have a similar effect on your dog’s emotional well-being as 30 minutes of physical exercise? Dogs love to explore and problem solve and will use their noses and paws as tools. Each Nina Ottoson puzzle toy game is designed with your dog’s natural behaviors, senses and safety in mind.

Reduce Unwanted Behaviors

Setting your dog to work on a puzzle or game helps focus his attention and energy. This mental redirection can help reduce boredom, anxiety and destructive behaviors, too. Try using puzzle toys to distract your dog from fireworks, thunderstorms and other stressful situations.

Four Levels of Play

All dogs are different. That’s why each treat puzzle toy was designed with a different level of difficulty—to please dogs of all skill levels, whether they are beginners or puzzle-solving pros. Start by choosing a level that suits your pup’s skill set and level up as he learns!

Level 1

Perfect for beginners, these puzzles help gain interest and prepare dogs for puzzles to come.

Level 2

Features added obstacles, requiring your dog to combine actions to retrieve each tasty reward.

Level 3

These advanced puzzles challenge your dog to complete several steps in order to reach the hidden treats.

Level 4

This is the hardest level and requires multiple steps and problem-solving skills to solve!

For Bonding and Training

Nina Ottosson puzzle games are a great way to build your relationship with a newly adopted dog or help a shy dog come out of his shell. You can also use puzzles to help train your dog and practice basic commands like “sit” and “stay”.

Questions & Answers

Is this a good choice for a 75lb Goldendoodle or is it likely to be too small?
Answer by HalfPintJan 25, 2023
My 30lb 8mo-old Mix tore off the red lids. He's a puppy, still aggressive.

Will a senior dog with no teeth able to enjoy this toy?
Answer by ChewyJan 07, 2020
A pet with no teeth could possibly use just their paws and tongue however, this may be more difficult. We recommend the Nina Ottosson by Outward Hound Treat Maze Interactive Dog Toy or the Nina Ottosson by Outward Hound Dog Smart Composite Puzzle Dog Toy, which may be easier.

Lots of compartments to hide treats

I just got this for my toy Australian Shepherd and he figured it out very quickly. I'm giving 4 stars because he's only 11 pounds and was able to take the flaps off the hinges. Other than that it's good when you need a few minutes of peace and I love that it has so many places to hide the treats so he'll have to take off the bone and slide the little red box to get the treat from under it. Definitely recommend as a nice brain game but not for strong chewers because they'll for sure chew up the removable white bones and possibly the flaps to the little red boxes if they're able to get it off its hinges. Picture of me and the little guy for reference and also because he's just so cute

Great puzzle

I have a three and a half month old Doberman and she needed something a little bit more challenging. She did figure out this puzzle very quickly and is now able to get all the drawers open and under about 15 minutes but it really works her mind and keeps her busy. I would definitely recommend it even for a dog that has never used a puzzle before. Since she went straight from a very basic puppy puzzle to this one, we will have to order a harder one next time.

Surprise Suprise

First thing, the pictured item is not what I purchased. I have the light blue and yellow bone shaped Tornado from Ottosson, I wish my dog would let us watch her play with the toy, but Layla doesn't like to have anyone watch her eat. Layla had little trouble learning how to open the different levels of the puzzle and empty it of food. I consider the included small white bones too much of a chew hazard and will never use them. Layla definitely approves.

Too many loose parts ……..

Our 3 mth old Australian Shepard was ripping the covers off the tray and removing the removable trays and making chew toys out of them within 5 minutes of being given this puzzle. Buyer beware depending on your dog, I suppose. We bought the circle puzzle by same designer with detachable pieces and she loves it and has not destroyed it.

Pinching Hazard

This is the second puzzle I’ve gotten from the outward hound collection and I have to say I’m slightly disappointed. It is a challenging puzzle for my dog, she hasn’t figured out the locks. I think it’s mostly from where they are placed. She just scratches at the top of it and then the sliding pieces sometimes fly out. She is never quite able to get her paw on the locks…. I’ve tried elevating it so she would go for those first and I’ve tied rope to them too but she still not able to work it out. Any other tips to help with that part? She’s about 45lbs. When I don’t have it locked though, she flies through the puzzle. There have been some occasions where it seems like it’s pinched her tongue which is why I am giving it 3 stars. She doesn’t see too discouraged by it because she gets very excited when she knows she is going to get food from it. But something to keep an eye on when your dog uses the puzzle

Good at first

It’s a nice puzzle toy to have my dog and puppy think but the pieces are very loose and come off super easily that I can’t leave the room for anything longer than five minutes because the dogs start chewing on the plastic pieces and I’m Afraid they will swallow them.

Treat Puzzle

What fun to watch Daisy catch on so quickly and then look at me as if to say, what's next? She learned this level two puzzle within a few minutes. It took three days for her to become proficient and then on day four it was like watching a whizz kid do a rubrics cube. Definitely entertainment for both beast and human! I wish I had purchased it sooner. Daisy is 14 and obviously is not suffering from dementia.

Love the Brick Puzzle

This is a favorite for 2 of my cats that love puzzle toys and kibble as treats. I put Cat Man Doo chicken treats on the bottom under the red sliders and it takes some work to get to those good treats. I also like that the red container lids come off/on.

Choking hazard!

This toy was wonderful for my puppy, until I discovered her chewing on small rubber round pieces (about the size of a gumball) and I had no idea where they came from. I would take one away, and find her chewing on another one. Turns out, the little rubber padding pieces on the underside of the toy are easily removable, which was highly concerning to me. Great toy otherwise, but not worth the risks involved.

Chanoni loves it

I bought 2 puzzle games fir Chanoni. She'd seemed bored, wasn't interacting much after losing her 22 year old kitty companion. I thought working on puzzles with her might help. She quickly learned the puppy puzzle, but I'd also purchased this one which she's figuring out more and more each time we play. She wants her dinner in the puzzles nightly now. We all look forward to puzzle time.
