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”.

Fun to use with my dog

My dog is a small and about 7 years old. I decided to get her this toy to encourage her use her sniffing abilities to play instead of destroying her toys. I was a little worried that she wouldn’t understand how to get the treats but after giving her some time and showing her to get the treat out from under the bones. I put her favorite treats inside and she sniffs them out, I love how it challenges her to use her nose to find the hidden treats. Best of all, there’s no mess to clean up after she plays with it!

Hilariously amazing to watch

Okay, let me start by saying, this did not keep Ava busy for hours. 2 minutes maybe. BUT, it’s made so well! She loved figuring out how to get to the treats and will push it over to me to fill when she’s bored lol. She’s the raptor of the house and this puzzle is standing the test of time with her, so I’d recommend it for anyone with pups who love mischief and chewing.

Great puzzle

My Yorkshire is 3 years old and 6 pounds. Bella has a hard time with age appropriate puzzles because her toy kibble gets stuck in the corners. This is perfect for her at noontime . I usually give her kibble for a snack and the puzzle allows her to work for her food. I also put little pieces of carrots in there and she loves hitting the tops off to get her reward. Perfect for little fur babies.

Perfect for Your Pup

My puppo loves it. He has mastered it completely, so now when I fill it with treats, he lays down and just paws the bones away. He then gets distracted by the plastic white bones and plays with those. The bottom has non-slip traction on the bottom. I recommend this activity board!

Didn't even last a day

I bought this toy for my two hounds and golden retriever. One of the hounds, Honey, was left alone with the toy for maybe an hour, tops. When I returned to the room, I found that she had chewed two of the bones and the base. The edges of the chewed bones are sharp now and can't be used again so basically most of the toy was ruined in one day. Okay toy I guess but should be more chew proof.

Great starter game

She loves it. Just enough of a challenge to hold her attention. Time for a harder challenge!! It’s wonderful to occupy their minds

Nice Reward Challenge

Our dog loves this! He's 9 months old and this is a great toy to keep him busy and challenge his mental skills.

Your dog will love this toy

I was surprised that my four month old puppy could figure out how to find the treat in this toy. She really worked at it. It really challenged her.

Too easy for my dog

Maybe my Breezy is a genius, but it takes me longer to put treats under the bones than it did for him to flip them over. He's a 9-y-o poodle mix. Clever idea and maybe good for puppies developing motor skills or smaller breeds, but a waste of time for my dog.

fun activity for pup

A fun toy, not a brain teaser. Only engaged my 6mo pup for 8min before she figured it out.
