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”.

    Good for keeping your dog busy.

    By BanjosMom on Jul 4, 2017

    I started with the 1 and he mastered it in seconds so I ended up ordering this one and it took him a few min to understand. It's perfect to keep my active smart puppy on his toes. It's been helping him with his attention span. Couldn't be happier. It's also good quality plastic. My pup is a 7month old pitbull and he hasn't even made a scratch on it!

    Cute idea, but too easy for my dog

    By Laura on Jun 29, 2017

    This puzzle is well made and has a creative concept; however, our 7 month old labradoodle figured it out in a minute! It says it is for level 3 genius dog, which I find hard to believe since ours figured it out so quickly. Even though he gets it quickly, he still has fun with it so we'll set it up just to see him get so excited! It wasn't very expensive, so I would say it was worth it.

    Well made but maybe for a wee bit older dog? She'll have it later!

    By Rosebud on Jun 30, 2017

    Great toy idea that lets the dog work to obtain the treat or food. My 3 month old pup does fine if I remove the little yellow covers and I think when she's a wee bit older this will be a great toy for her!

    My puppy loves this game!

    By Gibson on Jun 29, 2017 top1000Contributor

    My 4 month old puppy is all about play! He loves playing this game and I like that he has to use his brain to figure it out. He solves it within a few minutes, but he really enjoys doing it. My 1 year old dog also enjoys it, but he solves it very quickly.

    not super easy so it's great

    By oceanwaves on Jun 10, 2017

    it takes time to great the idea and all the treats so I love this for my dog. he works at it, leaves it, goes back and tries again. Sometimes he gets things by trial and error. It occupies him. It's a change of pace from fetch.

    kept my pup busy for a while!

    By FrenchieMom on Jun 8, 2017

    Im always looking for toys to keep my puppy busy and out of trouble, this was the perect fit! However, his mouth is still too small to flip over the yellow blocks so I put them in upside down and seems to fix the problem!

    Good puzzle toy

    By Hellothere31 on May 29, 2017

    My dog is very food motivated and LOVES puzzle toys. This one took her a bit to figure out the first time, but it was very entertaining to watch her. Now that she's done it a few times though, she's learned that instead of removing the blocks and rotating it, all she has to do is drop it down the stairs and gather all the treats that fall out. Still entertaining though, and it still makes her work for her treats

    Not for my dogs

    By Blondegirl on Apr 30, 2017

    I was so excited for this product. But after filling it with treats and giving it to my Corgi it was hard for him to grab the squares out of the device. So he ended up sitting there and crying. He was able to spin it but it was super super simple for him to do that. My Pomeranian wanted nothing to do with it being for some reason she was too scared of it. I would say bigger dogs would have an easier time with this.

    works even for small pups

    By Jenny on Apr 27, 2017

    Tried this the first time and realized my 10 pound Chiweenie was unable to pick the yellow blocks up, after watching her try to get the yellow blocks up without success I ended up flipping them over so she could pick up the lip with her teeth - once I did that she figured out the puzzle in under a minute or two. Great toy just took a little bit of creative thinking on my part to have it work for a smaller dog.

    By ANGELBLUE on Apr 11, 2017

    My big boy Blue is a 160 lb German Shepherd. He is very sweet, loving and smart. My mom and my brother came over for dinner one evening, so we loaded each layer up with treats and he very quickly went through removing each block and turning the wheel just enough to get his treats...then he looked at Grandma and Uncle and was just as proud as could be. It was just like having a child win a darn spelling Bee or something ....soooo cute!!!
