Outward Hound is a team of passionate pet lovers who create innovative products for a better pet’s life. Their interactive toys engage a dog’s natural instincts and sharpen it’s problem-solving skills.
These dog puzzle toys are very popular with dog owners, because they provide mental stimulation and encourage domesticated animals to tap into the natural behaviours they (or their ancestors) would practice in the wild.
Different levels of difficulty
Toys are available in three levels of difficulty, so you can choose the one that is most suitable for your dog. This makes it possible to gradually increase the level of sophistication and contributes to the mental development of the dog.
Level 1 interactive puzzle toy will prepare the dog for more challenging games with simple one-step actions. It is suitable for any breed and size. Level 2 requires the dog to learn how combined actions lead to a tasty reward. Level 3 will challenge the dog’s ability to learn sequential steps and combinations to seek and find hidden treats while keeping them mentally active. It can help to redirect the dog’s destructive or negative behaviour in a fun and exciting way. And level 4 (expert level) will require the dog to complete a series of steps in the correct order to keep discovering more hidden treats. It is perfect for very smart dogs that have already mastered level 1-3 puzzle toys.

“…Dogs are natural foragers, so making them work for their bites of kibble is a great way to work their brain. If you have a dog that likes to inhale their food at record speeds, using an interactive puzzle for their meals is a great way to slow them down.” – Cathay Madson of Preventative Vet notes
