With dog treats as an incentive, these dog puzzles are challenging and fun!

Of course dogs are smart and all, but dog owners can now up the challenge by offering their dog the chance to problem solve with dog games and dog puzzles. Some of the dog games work with yummy dog treats hidden inside, enticing the dog to use his or her nose and paws to slide or remove the puzzle pieces in order to "win" the treats. Other dog games are plush and don't use dog treats as a reward, but rather the instinctual satisfaction of removing pieces out of a hole in the puzzle. Either way, you can't go wrong with wanting to mentally stimulate your dog and giving the opportunity for some real tail-wagging satisfaction!

Dog puzzles make a great gift - so much more unique than the average squeaky toy or tennis ball!

Kyjen Treat Triad

With the Kyjen Treat Triad dog game, dog treats are stored inside three treat chambers. However, getting to the treats isn't so easy. Dogs must first rotate the top spinner in order to unlock the treat chambers. Then, dogs must figure out how to open the flap on each of the treat chambers in order to win the game and earn the treats!

Kyjen iQube

The Kyjen IQube dog puzzle is one of the best-selling dog games of all time. There are no dog treats used with this plush dog puzzle, but rather the pride of pulling all the plush balls out of the IQube is your dog's reward (and one dogs go back for again and again). A good puzzle for dogs who like to hunt and find!

The Dog Twister dog game is a fun way for any dog owner to bond with their dog. Just fill up the treat chambers with dog treats or kibble and encourage your dog as he works his hardest to figure out the best way to get to those treats. In order to "win" the game, dogs must first remove the white bones and then slide the doors in order to reveal all the hidden dog treats.

Kyjen Jigsaw Glider

Think of the Kyjen Jigsaw Glider dog game as a treat-filled jigsaw puzzle. It features interlocking sliding covers that hide a total of four dog treat chambers. Sliding the pieces can prove challenging for a dog, but the reward of all those yummy treats is worth using all that extra brain power to get them! An interactive dog toy like this is a lot more stimulating than your average, run-of-the-mill dog toy!

The Dog Finder puzzle is harder than it looks. Before they can remove the treat-filled bones, dogs must first slide the bones to the wider section. It's a challenging feat but with a bit of practice and determination, dogs can master this dog puzzle and be a treat-eating champion!
