You've Got to See This Dog Puzzle in Action

It's surprisingly chic, too.

It's no secret that pet products aren't always the most appealing. I mean sure, they're cute, but not everyone is going to want a hot dog dog bed, Croc-shaped pet bed, or a bright blue dog ball in their homes. I get that. So when I saw how chic the Nina Ottosson + Outward Hound Dog Puzzle was, I knew my dog needed to try it out. And as you can see in the video above, it was a hit.

It's extremely easy to set up and use. First, grab a few of your pup's favorite treats, place one or two under the cylinders, and place the cylinder back on the board. Repeat these steps until the board is fill and place it on the floor. Or you could only put a treat under a few cylinders, making it more of a challenge for your pooch. Or just put one treat in the middle cylinder, and watch your pup sniff it out. The possibilities are truly endless with this puzzle.

Nina Ottosson dog puzzle games were built to exercise your pet's mind and body. This beginner puzzle is an an easy way to prepare your pup for more challenging games, sharpening his or her mental skills. Plus, the nine removable treat compartments will keep pups busy for more than a few minutes.

Once your dog has cleared the puzzle, the toy is really easy to clean. It's made from hard plastic, so just hand wash it with soap and water, and you're ready for the next round. I'm glad there's a dog toy that can both entertain my dog and not look completely out of place in my house. It's about time.
