**Guest post from Ellen B.**
|Looking for a tail-wagging, lip-smacking good dog toy that will keep your dog busy? Puzzle dog toys are a great choice! They stimulate your dog’s mind by making him solve a problem to get treats hidden inside the toy.
Watch this video of my dog demonstrating 3 different puzzle dog toys, and you’ll see that he goes nuts over these toys!
I asked Jodi, the Drs. Foster & Smith Purchasing/Merchandising Manager, about these popular products and she said,
“Puzzle toys are great for dogs and owners too! The dogs love to be intrigued and find the solution to get a treat or toy & dog owners love to watch and interact with their pets. The toys are a win/win and are proven to be great purchases!”
Featured Puzzle Dog Toys That Are All Boredom-Busters:
- Linkables Dog Toys
Linkables are made of thick rubber, making it a very durable dog toy. Use a single link as a stand-alone puzzle toy OR connect multiple links together for a greater challenge. Tuck treats inside and let your dog work at getting them out! This toy is a hot item among us dog fanatics that work here at Drs. Foster and Smith!
- Read Barb’s review, One Tough and Entertaining Toy I LOVE.
- You’ll love Melissa’s idea to use the Linkables to stop begging at the dinner table.
- Seek-A-Treat Wood Puzzle Toys
Hide treats in treat cups under flaps and sliding disks. Your dog will have to figure out to slide the toy pieces or open the flaps. A great way to provide mental stimulation and reward curiosity.
- Buster Cube Dog Toy
Tuck dry food or treats inside the buster cube. Then show your dog how to roll it so food randomly falls out and watch him as he is rewarded for being playful as well as curious. The Kibble Nibble Dog Toy is a similar toy that holds more food.
