Nina Ottosson Dog Brick Interactive Treat Dispenser Dog Toy
The Dog Brick Puzzle Game by Nina Ottosson makes giving treats to your dog more fun! Nina Ottosson's philosophy is that a dog has four legs and one head, and all five need activity in different ways – both physical and mental.
This Level 2 Intermediate dog game features red boxes with flip lids and bone-shaped compartments in the base where you can store and hide treats. Use the white bone covers to conceal the treats in the compartments and let your dog sniff out the goods!
These treat-hiding pieces are specially designed for your dog to paw and move on their own. Perfect for combating boredom and keeping your dog’s mind sharp, this treat-hiding dog puzzle is a must-have toy if you want to make playtime more challenging for your pet.
Nina's games and toys will exercise your dog’s mind and body, can help prevent and reduce behaviour problems, prevent boredom and help strengthen your bond with your dog.
HOW TO PLAY: The aim is for your dog to remove the white bones, open and slide red compartments to locate treats. The difficulty level can be customized to challenge your dog. Here's the simplest instruction for this game:
- Place treats or kibble in the compartments of base and sliding blocks. Cover middle compartments with the bones.
- Leave some of the bones out and flip open the blocks to gain your dog's interest to start with while teaching your dog how to use this dog puzzle. Add bones back in as your dog grows to understand the puzzle, this increases the difficulty.
- The more covered compartments, the harder the puzzle will be! Show your dog how the game works and encourage them to find the treats.
Size: 31.5 x 21 cm, height 4 cm

Usage Advice: Always supervise when playing, and don't let the dog chew on the toy. It is important to teach your dog how to use the puzzle, play and have fun together the put away until next time. These puzzles are very durable for pawing and throwing, but sensitive for chewing. Nina Ottosson toys are not chew toys.
Great training toy for my lab puppy!
Truffle absolutely loves it and figured it out real quick! I give it to her every now and then when she’s feeling bored, but may need to get a higher leveled toy for her

Thank you for the review, Truffles such a sweetie and so smart! The Dog Brick is one of our most popular puzzles check out the casino as a level up!
Loved it but…
Fred (5months old) LOVED this game. However because he is teething we had to remove the white puzzle to avoid them being chewed up. The good thing is the puzzle is still great without! But once he did it a couple of times he can work through it very easily! we might go for something a little more challenging next time. A good thing about it is that it is quiet with no rattling so if you have a scared pup who is easily startled by noise this is great!
This puzzle kept me busy for about 15 mins. After that I wanted to chew all the plastic and my human took it off me. I use it most days and it is fun!

Love that you love your puzzle! Brick is one of our 2IC Abbey the lab's favorites too!
Great choice for engaged dogs working on puzzle skills
Fantastic and not too difficult with lots of different components, meaning your pup is likely to get at least one part of it solved easily! Fits a great amount as well, making it perfect for serving her dry kibble dinners. Stands up well to her rough 'solving' and is holding up really well even after several uses (and her tendency to use her teeth to 'solve').
This toy works well and has lots of room for simplifying or adding complexity.
