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

My girls love it. They took a little time to figure out how to remove them, but they love it now. My pittie will remove one bone, take it across the room, and then come back to eat that section of food. She repeats until finished with her food. Hilarious!!! Of course there are many pieces, so keep that in mind if you dont want to clean a bunch of items. This brand has other toys with less pieces as well!

Puzzle time is fun time

my Elkhound mix and pitbull both love this game as is and I can get them to take turns. my Chihuahua is less motivated, but I have found that he'll play with just the white bones on the floor (I'm hoping that he might upgrade one day, but he's happy now. even my cat (who thinks she's a dog) will play with the bones on the floor. supervision is a must, especially if you have multiple pets and don't want pieces to get chewed up.

Amazing toy

I really like this one, keeps my pup distracted and I really love to see him trying to open it to get his food or treats. This is a great introduction to this kind of mental toys.

seems fun!

My 9 week old puppy finds this game fun. I put his food in it, a bit in each section and let him have his dinner this way. It takes him about 10 minutes to eat and even though he has figured it out, he still seems to enjoy the game. I will get some tougher ones for when he is a bit older.

Great game for treats

We have an older girl and she is VERY cautious and careful - and a little jumpy. This game works for her if we put the bone lids on sideways so she can slide them off - sometimes the plastic sound of them sliding spooks her. :D She will never be so aggressive as to push the bones out if placed securely - just not in her nature. But it's a good game in our rotation none the less and we regularly use it.

great puzzle but be warned

i've gotten two of these because with the first one I wasn't really watching my dog while they did it and they ended up chewing up most of the bone pieces to become unusable. my older dog (11, cookie) has already mastered this though and can clear it in less then a minute so I decided to upgrade her and give this one to my younger dog (3, daisy). Daisy is having trouble with it but has only been using it for three days or so, i'm excited to see her countine to think through things and will be so proud once she gets the hang of it. definetly recommend, just make sure you watch your dog(s).

great starter puzzle

Bought this for my dog to giver her extra stimulation on the days that I can’t take her on an actual walk. She never done a puzzle for so I bought this one because it was rated easy. It took her about 15 minutes to figure it out and now, since she knows how to do it, she can do the puzzle very quickly. The puzzle itself is nice, it occupies her, and helps boredom.

Not ideal for a larger chewer

My dog likes this toy - she's able to figure out the puzzle very quickly and nudges the little bones within a matter of minutes. Once the treats are gone, she then has an instinct to start chewing on the little white bone pieces. I have to watch her while she's playing this and IMMEDIATELY take it away once she's done. Would probably be better for a smaller dog with less of a chewing instinct.

Trying to keep puppy boredom low

I, like all moms, think my puppy is not only cute but also, smart. Disappointed that she hasn't figured this toy out unless how to chew the pieces counts!!
