It’s Fun. It Feeds. It’s A Challenge Your Dog Needs! Nina Ottosson invented the first dog treat puzzle game in 1990. She is widely known among pet parents, dog trainers, ethologists, and veterinarians. Treat Puzzle Games fight boredom, help reduce destructive behaviors, and exercise your dog’s mind. It’s hide-and-seek with treats, and dogs love it!

A MESSAGE FROM NINA I created the puzzle toy category more than 25 years ago because I needed a way to keep my dogs active indoors. I couldn’t imagine then how many dogs & pet parents our toys would help. I continue to be inspired by the success stories of dogs who have become happier, healthier, and better behaved by using my products. I hope you will have as much fun playing with these games as I’ve had making them.

OTHER BENEFITS OF TREAT PUZZLE GAMES REDUCING ANXIETY:

PAWS OFF:

Puzzle games are a great way to distract dogs from fireworks, thunderstorms, and other situations that may make them anxious.

Set the game on a stool or chair to encourage dogs to use their noses to solve the puzzle. This makes the puzzle extra challenging for quick learners, prevents dogs from being too rough with their paws, and is a good way to play if your dog is injured or recovering from surgery.

SLOW EATING PACE: Eating meals from a puzzle game can prolong meal time and slow eating pace to help prevent obesity and bloat.

GETTING EXERCISE INDOORS: Treat Puzzle Games are great to use when it is too cold or too hot for outdoor walks or activity.

FROZEN PUZZLE: Mix tasty wet dog food with water, then put the game in the freezer and let it set. This is the perfect way to make puzzles last longer and provide a cool treat when the weather is hot.

THEY HELP WITH TRAINING: You can use Treat Puzzle Games to motivate your dog and reinforce basic training commands as you play.
