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”.

There’s a clear plastic piece inside the toy. Is it supposed to stay there or do I have to remove it

How do you take this apart to clean it and get old treats out?
Answer by ChewySep 12, 2019
To wash your dog’s Treat Maze, simply remove all treats/kibble and hand wash with warm soapy water, rinse clean and dry. This toy does not come apart.

Plastic broke into pieces

Terrible product- after puppies played with a handful of times , their nails scratched the plastic and it broke into pieces! One of our puppies swallowed a piece. Poor product, poor craftsmanship

Not the best option available

I have several enrichment feeders, but this one just didn't do it for us. The design ambition is there, but the execution not so much. There is no way to remove the top, that I am aware of, to give this a good cleaning. I suppose you could run it through the dishwasher, but we aren't lucky to have those. Food also tends to get stuck pretty easily and it takes even myself an extensive period of time to get it dislodged. We still use this on occasion, but I wouldn't buy it again.

Could work for some dogs

We chose this puzzle because I thought we would need to advance through stages 1 through 4 sequentially. I didn't want to buy a level 3 and have it be too complicated but this is really more like a level 1, it's just harder to get the treats out. It's so hard to get the treats out unfortunately that once he gives up, they go stale and I have to stand over the trash can shaking it vigorously to remove them. It is time consuming. I believe there is a treat currently stuck inside somehow as I put in 2 and only 1 came out but no idea what it's stuck on or how. I don't believe it comes apart and am afraid to break it. We will try other puzzles, probably from this brand, but this particular puzzle was not a good fit. If your dog will violently shake it until they come out, this would be great for you.

Cool shape, poor design

Designed for dogs, this feeder is on several cat lists. And has a cool shape! And doesn't dispense easily. At all. I understand why frustrated dogs rip into the opening. However my cat just walks away with an indignant pout. Frankly, I couldn't shake all the kibble out when I went to retire it. And how would anyone wash this? Nope. Nina Ottosson makes many great puzzles, but this is not one of them.

Not good for a chewer

When I first gave this to my 10 pound micodoodle he had a blast and played with it for about 20 minutes. But the second time I gave it to him while I was on a conference call and he completely destroyed it. In general he is not a chewer but the temptation of the treats did the toy in. Probably a great toy if your dog isn't a chewer!

Not sturdy

The first time I let my dog try it out he made it about 15 minutes before getting frustrated and tried chewing on it (which seems like a reasonable reaction for a dog struggling to get at a treat). I took it away before he did damage, but based on the thin plastic material it would not last long if I tried it again.

Puzzles? Not this one!

This looks like a great puzzle toy, but if your dog is a chewer (at all), this is not a good toy. I filled it, and gave it to me girl. She threw it around, then promptly started chewing on it. Before I could even get it from her, she had already chewed the edge. If your doggo doesn’t chew on things this toy would probably be fine. Just not for doggos that chew.

Not so good

I tried every which way to get my dog and cats to try and play with it but they only sniffed it once and didn't try it. Now it just sits on the floor.

Great toy for dogs

My German Pinscher figured it out within minutes. I loved watching her tap on it. A variety of treats would be good for a change.

Minutes of entertainment

I bought this for my 20 lbs. Terrier mix and she loves it. It takes her a few minutes to get all the food out. She flips it around with her nose and feet. She does not chew on these types of toys. The outside of the toy has a rubbery coating on it. It is challenging to fill this with food as the holes on the top and bottom are small. I can only get about 1/4 cup of food into it, using both holes. There isn't a way to open it for easy filling or cleaning. I have tossed this in the dishwasher which cleans the outside nicely, but I am not sure how well it cleans the inside. As always, if you have a dog or puppy that like to chew on plastic, supervision is required. In addition, if you have a dog that would rather chomp through the plastic to get the food, this might not the toy for your dog. I don't think this is strong to hold up to serious chewing.
