Nina Ottosson Dog Worker
By Outward Hound.
Smarty Pup Approved!
With so many challenges, this game is sure to keep your pup active and engaged. The four outer blocks give a quick reward once your pup pulls them out, but the four inner blocks are where the true challenge begins. First, they have to spin the disc to align with the block’s track. Then push the block to the end opening, pull it out, and reveal a tasty reward.
Every dog's a winner with Nina Ottosson by Outward Hound Games! Bring out the genius in your dog with our interactive, treat-seeking puzzles and exercise toys. Difficulty level 3 - For the doggy genius.
Who is Nina Ottosson?
Since 1990, Nina's products have improved the lives of pets and pet parents all over the world. Named one of '45 People Who Changed the Dog World' by Dog Fancy Magazine, Nina Ottosson has pioneered the development of puzzle games and toys that utilize reward-based play patterns to keep pets stimulated.
It's Fun. It Feeds. It's A Challenge Your Dog Needs.
All dogs are natural problem solvers, but they just don't get enough chances to flex their mind muscles. And that's a shame because - for our dogs - just 10 minutes of mental activity is equal to 30 minutes of physical activity.
Now part of the Outward Hound family, Nina will continue to develop new puzzle games and toys that exercise your pet's body and mind, reduce boredom, and help to curb destructive behavior. Get your game on!

The only negative thing I can add is that at 53 pounds Coco is no lightweight and her large teeth and nails did scrape a little bit of the wood along the edges of the circles after she had licked at it for a while. I pushed it back down and let it air dry and you cannot even tell that there was an issue.
We found a jar of semi-soft treats, that look like little steaks, at "the worlds largest retailer". These are just the right size for the wooden blocks to fit around. *Note* They need to be no larger than your finger nail.
Our cat can't stand it...he has to help our dog find the treats. GREAT PRODUCT NINA OTTOSSON!
This is a wooden puzzle, so you really have to work it with your dog, so that he or she doesn't eat it. It has a few different difficulty levels, depending on where you hide the treats.
Easy-1: Hide treats under the 4 outside pegs. The dog has to lift the pegs to get the treats.
Easy-2: Hide treats in the 6 holes under the spinning disk in the middle. The dog turns the disk to get the treats.
Medium. Unscrew the center disk, and hide treats under the 6 sliding pegs around the disk. The dog slides the pegs to the middle, where he or she can pull them out to get the treats.
Genius: Leave the center disk in and hide the treats under the sliding pegs. The dog turns the disk to each peg's track, then slides the peg to the middle to pull it out, then turns the disk to the next track to get that peg.
This is really well made - all the parts fit together well and move smoothly. So far, our dog is still stuck in the first step - about half the time, instead of getting the treat, he runs away with the peg and tries to eat that - but we love that once he masters that, we can introduce something else to keep him interested. Strongly recommended for a dog that likes puzzles, whether easy or hard.
after a while you can actually see your dog grow smarter and smarter after a few sessions with these puzzles . In fact i have been looking on amazon for another Nina puzzle for my dogs.
