Why we like it

If your dog can easily solve other puzzles, the Outward Hound Nina Ottosson Dog Twister will hit the spot. The toy features flaps that slide, pull, and lock, and these must be moved in a sequence so your dog can get their treats. This toy was designed to curb destructive behavior and help your dog learn repetitive and sequential actions. The pieces aren’t removable as a safety precaution that prevents your dog from playing with (or swallowing) small parts.
