From the Manufacturer

Nina Ottosson Interactive Games

Nina Ottosson is a Swedish dog trainer who created this range of durable, interactive games.

They have been designed to stimulate a dog’s brain whilst reinforcing it’s relationship with the family.

Nina Ottosson’s philosophy is that the dog has four legs and one head and all five need activity in different ways - both physical and mental.

Nina Ottosson games will:

Exercise your dog’s mind and body

Help prevent and reduce behaviour problems

Help prevent and reduce weight problems

Help strengthen the bond with your dog

Prevent boredom

Available games in the range

Brick

The Dog Brick has removable bones that slide across to a wider section of the groove. The dog learns to slide these across to remove the hidden treat. Difficulty rating - Medium.

Tornado

The Dog Tornado has many variables to increase the level of difficulty, providing more challenging ways to dislodge the removable bones and turn the revolving sections to find the treats. Difficulty rating - Medium.

Dog Twister

The Dog Twister - The idea behind the Dog Twister is for the dog to dislodge the removable bones, then slide the top covers to access the treats hidden inside. Difficulty rating - Hard.

Dog Spinny

The Dog Spinny has a single removable bone that dogs have to dislodge before rotating the top section to reveal the treats.

Available games in the range

Dog Magic

The Dog Magic is a relatively easy game for any dog to play, where they have to dislodge bones to access hidden treats. Treats can be placed under one, several, or all of the bones to vary the difficulty.

Dog Casino

The Dog Casino is a fun and challenging way to feed dogs. They will love removing the bones and opening the sliding compartments to reveal all the treats that are hidden inside. Difficulty rating - Hard.

Dog Finder

The Dog Finder is a fun way to feed your dog his treats. Simply place the treats under the bones and watch him learn to slide them across to reveal the hidden goodies. Difficulty rating - Medium/ Hard.

Dog Miracle

The Dog Miracle is ideal for the cleverest of dogs - and you get to decide how hard it’s going to be. The bricks can be stacked in an endless variety of ways with the treats placed in them, on them, or under them. Difficulty rating - Medium/ Hard.

Size: 9 treat compartments 12'' diameter
We own several of the Nina Ottosson dog toys, and my dogs love them all. The Dog Magic is the best one to start with if your dog is new to puzzle toys; it's easy for the dog to figure out. You hide treats in the bone-shaped depressions under the plastic bone-shaped cups, and the dog has to figure out how to dislodge the cups to get to the treats.

The trick to puzzle toys is to start easy and work your way up. Start by placing treats in the depressions and allowing the dog to get the treats (don't use the cups yet.) Your dog will figure this out pretty fast, then you can begin using the cups. Place the cups across the depressions the wrong way, so they are easy to dislodge. Once the dog is confident doing this, start placing the cups in the depressions the correct way and let the dog figure out how to remove them. You can make it more difficult by hiding treats under only a few of the cups for the dog to sniff out.

If your dog ever gets bored, or can't seem to figure it out, help them by encouraging them to move the cups, or backtrack to the previous step in learning the puzzle. Every dog learns differently - one of my dogs picks the cups up in her mouth, while the other removes them with his paws.

I like the plastic Nina Ottosson toys because they are so easy to clean. The cups fit right in the top rack of the dishwasher, and the base is easy to hand wash in the sink. A note of caution: this is an interactive toy only, and not meant to be left out for the dog to play with by himself. The plastic is too soft to withstand heavy chewing and would be destroyed in no time. I keep mine out of reach of the dogs when we're not playing the games together.

Verified Purchase
Length: 2:51 Mins
My dog is alone every day for at least 10 hours, so I love to leave him food based toys to play with. I was so excited to see this line of new puzzles to try although the price kind of put me off (at the time I originally wrote the review, the puzzle I bought, the Brick, ran about $50) But when it comes to my pets, no expense spared, right?! I liked the fact that this one was available in plastic making it easier to clean and less likely to absorb doggie slobber.

Unfortunately, the puzzle is just too easy. It took him maybe a couple tries to figure it out at the most difficult level, and he can now empty the entire thing in just a few minutes (my video clip shows him doing it, and not even at a very fast pace). This is in comparison to other treat filled toys that can keep him busy literally for more than an hour.

I'm going to try and modify the toy by trying to find something more challenging to put in between the sliding pieces, like heavy blocks or fishing sinkers, but I expect it will only slow him down slightly. I do think though that it's a nice alternative to just putting down a bowl of kibble, I can put my small dog's entire meal into the spaces it has, and certainly can help slow down a fast eater as well.

I've since also gotten the Tornado, it was in a local store for only $30 and since my dog did seem to at least enjoy the Brick I figured it was worth getting and hopefully would be more difficult. I would say it was maybe only slightly more difficult, and only came with 3 of the white bone "blocks" used to increase the difficulty, I use several more from the Brick toy which thankfully are the same size to make this one harder, but it still takes my dog a fairly short time to finish with it.

We own several of the Nina Ottosson dog toys, and our dogs love playing with all of them. The Dog Brick is a good toy for dogs with a little experience with puzzle toys; start with the Dog Spinny or Dog Magic if your dog is new to these types of toys. The Dog Brick holds treats in round- and bone-shaped depressions covered with slider blocks and bone-shaped cups. The dog has to remove the cups and slide the blocks to get to the treats.

As with all puzzle toys, the trick to teaching your dog is to start easy and work your way up. Without using the cups, place treats in the bone-shaped depressions and let the dog see them and get the treats. Then place treats in the round depressions, slide the blocks so they are only half-covering the treats, and let the dog get them. Once your dog is confident sliding the blocks, cover the treats all the way and allow the dog to slide the blocks to get to the treats. Finally, you can replace the cups in the middle bone-shaped depressions and let the dog figure out the entire thing. You can make it more difficult for your dog by hiding treats under only a few of the blocks for them to sniff out.

My dogs have lots of experience with puzzle toys and they figured this one out very quickly, so I like that you can adjust the difficulty to make it different every time. One of my dogs uses her mouth to dislodge the cups and slide the blocks, while the other likes to use his paws to move them. Part of the fun in these games is learning more about your dog as you play!

I prefer the plastic Nina Ottosson toys to the wooden ones because they are so easy to clean. The cups go in the top rack of the dishwasher, and the base can easily be handwashed in the sink. A word of caution: These toys are not meant to be left out for the dog to play with by himself. The plastic is too soft for determined chewing, and could easily be destroyed. Mine are placed out of the dogs' reach when we are not playing the games with the dogs.
