Let The Games Begin!
Dogs are smarter than we think – that’s why Nina Ottosson games and puzzles are perfect to challenge your puppy’s mind and senses. While humans use vision to navigate the world, dogs use their keen sense of smell to gather information, problem solve, and forage for food. By providing your puppy with daily puzzles and games, you are enriching your dog’s life in ways that other toys and activities can’t.

Playtime Problem Solving
Did you know that 15 minutes of mental stimulation equals 30 minutes of physical exercise for dogs? Puppies love to explore and problem solve in their own way—some use their paws and some use their nose. Each game is designed with your puppy's natural behaviors, senses, and safety in mind.

Strengthen The Bond
Nina Ottosson puzzles are a great way to build your relationship with a newly adopted dog and help shy dogs come out of their shell. Puzzles are a great way to train and practice basic commands like “sit” and “stay” with your pup.


Create Balance in Your Puppy's Life
As Nina says—a dog has four legs and one head, and all five need exercise but in different ways. These challenging and rewarding activities will engage your dog’s mind and natural instincts.


Reduce Undesired Behaviors
By putting your pup to work with a puzzle or game, you are focusing their attention and energy effectively, ultimately reducing boredom and destructive behaviors. Puzzles are also a great way to distract puppies from fireworks, thunderstorms and other situations where your dog may get anxious.
