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”.

Love it, but not purple

We LOVE this puzzle, however I have to deduct a star because it doesn't match the color shown in the photo at all. I had gotten it because my super chewer boy had destroyed our similar puzzle that was more of a cork material, and I was looking for purple themed gifts for my girl's birthday. I was pretty disappointed when it arrived and the only thing purple about it was the box. It's a deep blue, nothing like the lilac color shown. That being said, my pups really enjoy it. Yes it is a quick solve as others have said (you can add an extra challenge by putting treats in the holes of the circular pieces), but it's still a great mental stimulation activity! We usually play a few games in a row and they have a lot of fun.

Too Easy for a 5-Month-Old Dobie PERFECT for Cats!

My Dobie puppy has beaten ALL of the Nina Ottosson puzzles in a matter of seconds (the Expert puzzle is our favorite - it took him 28 seconds to empty the first time, but it still slows him down enough to keep him from barring up his kibble!) However, my indoor Bengal cat is OBSESSED with his Hide n’ Slide and is now happily working on his first level 3 puzzle, so I plan to pass the Hide n’ Slide onto my 2.5-year-old parrot. I LOVE that this particular puzzle is all one sturdy piece so it would be hard for any pet to eat the puzzle itself under supervision. Really excellent quality for the price!

Keep your smart dog out of trouble

I have golden retrievers and my nine month old is very smart and at an age where she is sometimes getting into trouble from all the curiosity. We have several puzzles from this manufacturer. My dogs figured this one out immediately, but still love it. I consider this one on the east side. The sliders and rotating pieces move easily and engage them. I have to play a few rounds if I am using about one cup of dog food as the compartments are small on this one. I do recommend it.

He Loves This

This puzzle has been a great way for my high anxiety Boston to burn off nervous energy when the weather is too cold for long walks. Just challenging enough to keep him engaged without being frustrating. The chunky construction is easy for brachy dogs to manipulate. He gets so excited to play with this that after two or three rounds he needs a nap. There are no loose pieces. The only downside is it is a little tricky to clean but definitely worth it.

Reasonably Good Puzzle

My pup is a 4-month-old golden o who makes little games for himself, such as by pulling one toy or a blanket through another toy. This puzzle would have been great if the lily pads didnt spin so freely and the sliders had a little bit of resistance. He was able to get all the hidden treats by randomly hitting things with his nose rather than having to deliberately move them. I read the instructions and learned that you can also drop kibbles into the hole in the top of the sliders so the pet has to slide the knob over the treat cup and then away from the treat cup to get those kibbles. That made him spend a little more time solving the puzzle and doing a little bit of thinking, making the Hide N Slide good for five minutes of play at a time.

easy for smart dogs

My big dogs (pit/boxer & dober/rottie) got this in no time. It is fun, but not a very long game. I started using it as a slow feeder for them, it holds about 1/3 cup of kibble. On the other hand, the two shih tzu’s still have not figured it out. This is a really solidly made toy. Some of the others I have gotten are a cheap plastic and this is heavy and sturdy. Highly recommend!

First Puzzle Purchase

My high energy dog recently had TPLO surgery and I wanted something to stimulate her and keep her occupied. This is her first puzzle toy and she completed the puzzle in less than 2 minutes on her first try. I was a little surprised how quickly she did it, I thought it would be more challenging. It’s been about 2 weeks since my purchase and she loves it! Every day she gets a small portion of her meals in the puzzle and seems excited for it. Looks well made and so far it seems pretty durable. Pretty stable and does not slide around while she tries to get the pieces out. Pieces move really smoothly. A little annoying to clean though.

Fun Game for Dog!

Hi, I got this game for my 13 month old yellow lab and she loves it. I put it on a stool and stabilize it a bit, as she is exuberant with her nose, seeking the treats. It didn't take long for her to understand she needed to move the pieces to get to the treats. The fact that there are no removeable pieces is a plus! I want to get her a more challenging game soon!

Pups love their puzzles

My pups love to see me filling their puzzles. It doesn't keep them busy for very long, but I love watching them figure it out time and time again. Durable material, easy for humans to figure out!

Pretty easy for my 10-week puppy

The product itself is fine quality. However, I purchased this for my 10-week-old puppy, and he had it figured out and emptied within three minutes. I've never had a puppy this young, so I'm not sure what is 'normal'. He does seem very smart, he's already mastered down, stay, watch, and sit in the week we've had him. So if you have a smart dog, I'd go with something more challenging.
