Challenge Your Dog’s Mind with This Popular Puzzle Toy
Introducing the Nina Ottosson by Outward Hound Dog Brick Puzzle
All dog moms and dads know that their pups need physical exercise. The zoomies are essential for dogs to get out their excess energy and work out their muscles and they are hilarious to watch, except when they get a little too crazy. While zoomies may be a sign your dog needs some physical activity, they might also be a sign your pup needs more mental stimulation. As pet puzzle toy developer and designer Nina Ottosson says, a dog has four legs and one head, and all five need exercise—that’s why Ottosson has been creating dog puzzle toys for over 25 years. And one of her trendy interactive dog treats puzzle toys is 60% off right now.
The Nina Ottosson by Outward Hound Dog Brick Puzzle (Level 2) dog game will entertain your dog for hours as they use its natural hunting skills to seek out hidden treats. This treat puzzle comes with three easy-to-fill compartments to hide your dog’s favorite treats and snacks. Bins with flippable lids open up to reveal the first compartment and also slide to reveal a hidden second compartment underneath. White, hollow brick-style bones hide the third compartment and can be easily lifted to place yummy treats made from challenging removable plastic parts, food-safe materials, BPA, PVC, and phthalate-free hand Washes with soap and water to clean.
This puzzle is ideal for pups who have mastered Level 1 of the Nina Ottosson puzzle line and are ready to take it up a notch. What is the difference, you might wonder? Level 1 “Beginner” puzzles are a great way to introduce your pup to problem-solving and puzzle games with one-step actions. At the same time, Level 2 “Intermediate” has added obstacles that require your dog to combine efforts to reach its reward. “Advanced” Level 3 puzzles challenge your dog to learn sequential steps to find their treat using more complex mechanisms. Finally, the line culminates with Level 4 “Expert” puzzles requiring your dog to complete a series of steps in the correct order to earn their treat.
Benefits of Puzzle Toys for Dogs
Dogs love to explore and problem-solve in their way, and challenging and rewarding activities like treat puzzles will engage your dog’s mind, senses, and instincts. Some dogs use their paws, some use their nose, and some use both! Putting your dog to work on a puzzle, you focus their attention and energy effectively, ultimately reducing boredom, anxiety, and destructive behaviors. Nina Ottosson puzzles also can help build your relationship with a newly adopted dog and help shy dogs come out of their shell. You can also use these puzzles to train and practice basic commands like “sit” and “stay” with your pup.
“These puzzles make you feel so proud when your dog solves them,” raves one happy customer. “Even though now my dog is a pro at this puzzle, he doesn’t get tired of it. He’s constantly asking me to put food into this puzzle so he can solve it. Great for smart puppies!”
