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”.

Wish it was more durable!

Well, my 80lb pitbull that has been needing interactive toys absolutely LOVES IT. Only problem is 5 minutes in she already broke one of the swinging covers/fins off. I feel like its only a matter of time before she breaks the rest. Still a great toy and I would recommend for a medium to strong chewer but not for a dog with a history of destroying everything.

Pandemic Puppy’s New Toy

Now that I am having to go into the office 3 days a week, I’ve been trying to find challenging toys for my pup to make his 8 hours go by quicker. I wanted to get the hardest level off the bat, so he wouldn’t out grow it super quick. I add all the treats inside all the peg holes and close all the flip doors. So far so good, he is still figuring it out even though he is super smart. Waiting on the day he learns how to flip it upside down. I will be looking for more of those brain puzzles!

She loves it!

My shepherd mix puppy loves this puzzle over and over again! I let her enjoy it three times in a row each day and she doesn't tire of it. She's getting so fast at finding the Rachel Ray's kibble I put in the pockets, but still gets excited using the puzzle. This one's a winner.

so far so good!

I've had this for about a week, my dog loves it and the material seems to be strong/ is holding up well. My dog solves it pretty fast now that he's figured out how to spin the wheel, but it'll still keep him entertained for a bit, and he seems to like the challenge. He's not super food motivated and rarely eats his food right away unless we make eating 'fun'. Putting some of his kibble in this along with a couple of treats has been working like a charm to get him interested in eating.

Good puzzle

Good puzzle toy. The first one I’ve bought, so I don’t have anything to compare it to. It fits half a cup of puppy food. I have a 7 month old husky. It took her a while to get it the first time. After a couple more times, she’s got the hang of it, and I wish it took her longer. She also has figured out how to cheat it; they are supposed to move the middle to get the food under there, but she’s figured out how to get her tongue under and get that food without moving it.

GREAT if done RIGHT!

If you do it correctly, this is a great puzzle for a smart dog. Initially, I put treats into the “inkwell” compartments, and my dog had no trouble moving things around to get the treats. It seemed too easy to be a “Level 3”. Then I realized that you drop the treat into the holes of the pegs. And the pup has to move the center wheel to reveal an “inkwell”; then slide the peg over the “inkwell” so the treat will drop; then slide the peg back to get the treat. This kept my dog busy for about 20 minutes the first time. After one time a day for about three weeks now, she can empty it in 10 minutes. We do it once a day, so it doesn’t get boring. So fun to watch her figure it out!

He loves it!

This is awesome for our pup. We can tell it really works his mind. He can get a little frustrated when figuring it out which is how I know that he is being challenged and learning. We also love that each puzzle has a different level, but with this particular puzzle you can make it easier to start them off.

Way too easy

The fins that spin around are very sensitive and open with just a tap, the knob type piece isn’t very weighted and again moves too easily, and the treat slots under the disk are accessible from the side so dogs can just lick the food out. I guess this would be good for a puppy but if your dog is at all intelligent this isn’t a challenge.
