First comes a bored dog, then comes trouble. Save your pillows, shoes, and backyard from total destruction with these mentally stimulating puzzles.
Hide some treats in this toy's tiny pods and your dog won't put it down until she digs them out. Bonus: It doesn't squeak, so she can have at it for as long as she likes!
This one's a lifesaver for the pup that eats like he's never been fed. He has to move through the grooves to get all the kibble out, so he finishes slower and is less likely to get sick.
Your pup has to scratch and nudge to get these nobs out of their notches. Luckily, the entire toy is made of chew-resistant bamboo, so it'll stand up to Fido's attempts to tear it to pieces.
Pop a few treats underneath and challenge your pet to dislodge the bones and get his reward. The smell of Bacon Bites wafting through the air is enough motivation for any dog.
For more of a challenge, upgrade to this board with multiple games. She'll have to decide whether to push, slide, or flip to get her kibble.
Here's one you can play together: Choose one of the holes to hide a treat, then watch as he learns to slide the piece around to find it.
This one is made for cats too! Just place a treat under each block for him to paw out. The anti-slide bottom makes it so he can't just cheat and flip the entire thing over.
Or, try this less challenging version for puppies. Just be sure you buy the right size — the mini version's cups may be a choking hazard for larger dogs.
Okay, so this won't end with a "check mate," but your dog does have to move the cones and slides in the correct order to get her treats.
Once Fido is ready for the next challenge, get him this flip board. The concept is similar to other puzzle games, but the added knobs and disks make getting to the treats a little more difficult.
With or without treats buried inside, your sniffing-obsessed dog will have a field day rummaging through this mat.
It's his favorite thing to hunt ... squirrels! Once he's figured out the game, these plush toys are perfect for fetch.
She has to sniff and move the rotating layers to get her food out of this spinner. like to use it for their cat's dry food during the day too.
This engaging game was designed to encourage your pup's natural behaviors like digging, scratching, and sniffing, but now she'll practice on this puzzle rather than your couch.
Unlike other puzzles that reward your dog for random behavior, this one challenges her to actually think about what she is doing. Once she slides over the wooden piece, she'll find treats underneath!
