Nina Ottosson Dog Puzzles

Updated on September 26, 2014

A Great Way to Add Some Challenging Fun to Your Dog's Life!

Nina Ottosson dog puzzles are thoughtfully made as a way to engage your dog in problem solving situations, as well to create an even stronger bond between you and your dog. The basic premise of these dog puzzles, whether they're wooden or recycled plastic, is mostly the same for all: hide dog treats within the puzzle and your dog must complete a task or set of tasks in order to find (and eat) the dog treats. However, the task(s) differs with each dog game, and so does the level of difficulty. Most dogs love a good challenge, especially if the dogs are treat motivated!

Nina Ottosson Wooden Dog Trubble

The Nina Ottosson Dog Trubble game is one of the more challenging dog puzzles (with a challenge rating of 2.5 out of 3). Just fill the hollow pegs with tiny dog treats or kibble and then place the pegs back in place. Dogs must figure out how to slide the pegs all the way down the twisty-turny grooves in order to remove them in order to eat those yummy treats!

Nina Ottosson Dog Twister

The Nina Ottosson Dog Twister puzzle (challenge rating 2.5 out of 3). Not only is this dog game challenging, it's also complex. Dogs must first remove the bones that lock the sliding doors in place. Then, they need to figure out how to slide the doors in order to access all those hidden dog treats. Phew! After all that work, you can bet your dog deserves some love (and treats, of course).

Nina Ottosson Dog Memory

The Nina Ottosson Dog Memory works differently than the other dog puzzles. It was created to test a dog's memory skills (rather than to test problem-solving skills as in the other games). With the Dog Memory, your dog watches as you put dog treats under only one of the colored dog bones. Then, allow your dog to choose the correct puzzle piece by pointing with his nose or paw. As your dog gets better at this game, you can increase the difficulty by spinning the puzzle around a few times or covering it and then uncovering it with a blanket. A great way to bond with your dog since you'll be playing the game together.

Nina Ottosson Dog Spinny

The Nina Ottosson Dog Spinny is a great beginner dog puzzle (challenge rating 1 out of 3) that's challenging but not overly difficult. Dog treats are hidden inside the Dog Spinny puzzle and your dog must first remove the white bone and then spin the top of the puzzle around in order to find the treats underneath. But, it's not as easy as it seems because the spinning top needs to stop at just the right time in order to reveal the hidden dog treats.

Nina Otttosson Dog Magic

With a challenge rating of 1 out of 3, the Nina Ottosson Dog Magic puzzle is perhaps the easiest of the Nina Ottosson dog puzzles. However, easy does not mean that it's not challenging for some dogs. If your dog is new at treat puzzles, the Dog Magic may be just the dog puzzle to get your dog interested in playing dog games. The way the Dog Magic works is simple: hide kibble or small treats underneath the white bones and then let your dog try and figure out where those treats are hidden and how to get to them.

      Yes, they do make cat puzzles. A lot of the Nina Ottosson puzzles say "great for cats too"!

      I have never heard of dog puzzles until I saw this article. I wonder if they have cat puzzles as well. My dog would probably pick out pieces that she likes and leave the rest alone.
