Nina Ottosson Interactive Wood Dog Toys

Wood Dog Tornado: A smart & fun way to activate you and your dog! Dog Tornado has four layers with rotating discs, with 3 layers that have compartments for hiding dog snacks. Your dog should rotate each layer’s disc to find the hidden dog snacks !
Make it more difficult: When your dog understands how to play the game, you can vary the game by hiding a different amount of snacks per round. How long you can play depends on your dog.

Wood Dog Smart: Hide treats in the compartments underneath some of the hollow blocks. Let the dog search for the treats by letting it use its mouth to lift one block after another in order to find the treats underneath. The dog cannot knock the blocks down with its paw but has to lift them up one by one with its mouth.
Make it more difficult: When your dog understands how to play the game, you can vary the game by hiding a different amount of treats per round and you can put some of the blocks upside-down with treats inside the hollow blocks. Put a piece of cloth or paper over the treats and put back the blocks.

Wood Dog Brick: Hide treats or dry food bits in the cavities under the bricks. Let the dog search for the treats by moving the bricks aside, either with the paw or the nose. It is not possible to lift the bricks. Ingenious and full of fun!
Make it more difficult: By locking the bricks with the same type of blocks used in the big Dog Smart. Now the dog has to lift the blocks in order to push the bricks aside and thus reach the treats. You can also put some pegs or sticks from trees between the bricks and lock the bricks.

Please Note: Do not let the dog bite the any of these toys. Play with it together with the dog. Do not leave the dog unattended.

      Comments about Nina Ottosson Interactive Wood Dog Toys:

      My German Shepherd Levi is a "hard chewer" and had a toy similar to this one. He loved the old version, but also chewed the puzzle to shreds when he was done playing the game. He hasn't destroyed this one and enjoys getting the hidden treats out!

        Comments about Nina Ottosson Interactive Wood Dog Toys:

        I have the Dog Brick and the Dog Smart. Both of my dogs LOVE these toys. It's great mental stimulation - when my dogs finish a round of playing with either of the toys, they are both panting! But, not only do my dogs enjoy the interactive playtime, but my CAT just LOVES the Dog Brick - opening sliding compartments is so intuitive to the cat, that I just had to give it a try. He loves it! He's an extremely active cat who needs lots of mental and physical stimulation. This is a great way to get him to use his mind and "hunt" for his dinner. Just love toys that enrich my indoor pets' lives!

        Comments about Nina Ottosson Interactive Wood Dog Toys:

        I have two small (11 pounds each) Havanese. I was a little worried this game was too big for them. Lizzie scratched and scratched at it and suddenly moved her position and opened one slot. She stayed at it and got another, she used her little nose and got another! She refused to let her brother near it. Up to now, he hasn't had the opportunity to try it out by himself. It's tough and versatile. And Lizzie likes it! I love that it makes her work at something new for her favorite reinforcement - food!

          Comments about Nina Ottosson Interactive Wood Dog Toys:

          As previously suggested, use of the toy should be supervised and it should be put away when not in use. My dog absolutely loves this. It is challenging and gives him a sense of accomplishment. I have given it to him to play with when his energy is at peak and I have literally seen him tire from playing with it, as if he has put in a hard day at work. The only downside is that he is learning to figure them out, so actual play time is getter shorter.

          Comments about Nina Ottosson Interactive Wood Dog Toys:

          I was looking for a toy to make my dog problem solve at meal time and slow down their eating. This toy does both of those things, but since I am using it for meals and not treats, it just doesn't hold enough food. For almost [$], it takes my dog only 5 minutes or less to find all the treats.

            My Golden Retriever loves this product. He enjoys finding the hidden treats. It is a bit pricey but it looks to be a long-lasting product.

              Comments about Nina Ottosson Interactive Wood Dog Toys:

              I have two dogs and each was very excited to try the game. We played two rounds each and everyone had a great time. The only con is that the dog watching really wants to play too and one of my dogs has some food aggression issues so I must watch them carefully when we play. My young dog gets a bit too excited and needs to be calmed at times. The dogs do try to bite the toy so it is important to watch them and put the toy away after using it. I will be trying other Nina Ottosson toys.
