Nina Ottosson | Dog Smart Orange Interactive Toy
Dogs need mental as well as physical exercise. If they lack mental stimulation, they can sometimes create their own "fun", like chewing on things, barking or hyperactive behaviour.
Nina Ottosson games are designed to stimulate a dog’s brain and reinforce it’s relationship with people. Each toy demands mental as well as physical dexterity to work through the challenges and get to the hidden food rewards. They can be set to different levels of complexity, to engage all ages and breeds and are also brilliant for senior and injured dogs who are still mentally alert but limited in terms of physical exercise.
The Dog Smart is an entry level game that challenges your dog to uncover treats while helping them to develop new learning techniques. The bones in this dog puzzle can be arranged to be flush with the board or elevated for different levels of challenges. When the bones on the Dog Smart are flush with the board, your dog will learn to paw and nuzzle at the pieces differently than when the bones are elevated and more easily removeable.
How to play
Place treats or kibble in compartments of base. Cover treat compartments with bones. The more compartments that are covered, the harder the game will be. Show your dog where the treats are and watch them find the tasty reward! Leave some compartments uncovered for your dog to gain interest. To clean, just remove all treats/food and wash with warm soapy water.
Skill Level: Easy
Size: Diameter 27 cm, height 3.5 cm
