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”.

Challenging for cats, too!

I got this puzzle for my curious and food motivated 1 year old bengal. He figured out how to access the treats within 10 minutes, and after just a few hourd he could successfully get all the treats out within 5 minutes. It slows him down a lot and keeps him entertained. My other kitty wasnt as interested. I'll probably get another puzzle from this same brand!

not well thought out

Great puzzle however after the 3rd time our dog figured out how to completely pull out the full tray and get to all of the treats instantly. It now takes him about 5 minutes to get to the right side in order to be able to pull it all out. It would be great if there was some kind if locking mechanism to it

Great for a crazy corgi

Our corgi broke his toe and was going crazy with boredom since he couldn't run and play like he usually does. This toy has been a lifesaver. We feed him breakfast and dinner in it, and he prefers this over a bowl. It took him a little bit to understand it, but after about 6 tries with our help, he figured it out and can do it all by himself. It stimulates his mind and helps him burn a little bit of energy while he eats his meals and puts him in a great mood. He isn't a destructive dog, but he does gently bite the pieces to move them when pawing at them won't work. They have stayed put for him and the level of force he applies with his bite. Definitely would recommend this for a non-crazy chewer dog who needs a bit of stimulation!

fun puzzle

This works well for my dog. She is very motivated and excited to get all the cups to open. There are no removable parts on the top so she cannot take pieces away like some of the other puzzles. I do supervise her and correct her when she wants to pry off a blue slider lid, but that isn't really a big deal, and I only do it so that the puzzle stays nice and useable over time. I have recommended this to a friend.

My puppy loves it!

My 11 months old puppy, boxer/pitbull mix, got it for Christmas and he loves it! For the first two days, I had to help him figure it out. On the third day, he was able to finish it on his own in about 9 mins. Since then, I would let him play with it every few days. Now he is able to finish it in about 5-6 mins. He uses his paws and nose to move the puzzle.

Good for 30ish min of distraction

My dog was not into this on the first try, a bit more confident on the second, and now excited to get her kibble and some treats from this toy! She really loves a puzzle toy (stuffies to pull out, treat balls, etc) and this one is no exception. I put half her kibble in it for at least one meal a day and it usually takes her 30 minutes to get through the whole thing. Adding a few higher value treats into the mix really increased her interest. Now I put maybe 5 pieces of freeze dried salmon total and she is just as engaged. Great for mental stimulation, especially when the weather isn't great and our walks stay short.

Not Worth It

Our dog figured out a simpler toy so we were interested in this product. Unfortunately, she figured out within 5 minutes that the easiest way to get at the treats was to remove the tiles from the grid.

Does not hold up to puppy

Buddy did well getting the treats until he became impatient and began getting the plastic pieces of the game out. I believe he thought that was part of the game as he began chewing on them.

Puzzle Challenge

Great little activity for a 100 pound, bored Golden Doodle. Built in sturdy fashion, pieces move fairly easily. Recommended for anyone who wants to increase their fur friend's curiosity and satisfaction!

Corgi’s favorite puzzle!

My corgi has TONS of puzzles and this one is by far his favorite because it’s not too tough but not too easy. He has gotten the hang of it and can do it in no time now but there are so many pockets it still entertains him. I must say that he has always done the puzzle with his paws and not his nose like the directions say so as he has gotten older (and bigger) he steps on it so it’s pretty sturdy. Get it for your puppy and show them how it works, and they’ll love it.
