If you are like many dog owners then you have come to common knowledge that a bored dog is more likely to take apart the couch, eat your shoe, chew up the remote or go dumpster diving or trash can tipping for his enjoyment & entertainment. Dogs need to be entertained and often times that means through destructive behavior. Keeping your dog well exercised or distracted with interactive games helps, as well as grows the strong human dog bond. Nothing says fun like an interactive brain teaser!
We are excited to bring to you after many requests, an interactive line of dog toys that will make your pooches work to get their treats. Nina Ottosson Dog Activity Toys is an exciting way to keep your pooch entertained for hours while you watch them figure out how to get to that hidden prize. The purpose of these dog toys is to mentally activate the dog in a positive and educational manner.
The idea is that you and your pooch get to spend some fun and enjoyable time together. You demonstrate. The dog watches, listens and learns. And hopefully… finds those treats!
Our Nina Ottosson Interactive Dog Toys Offering: Its Brains vs Brawns!
What are the benefits of Nina Ottosson Dog Activity Toys?
1. Brain Excercise-mentally stimulate your dog in a fun & creative way. The toys are easy to use indoors or outdoors, and are developed to match the dog’s natural movements and instincts.
2. Activating Problem Solving
The dog activity toys are designed for the dog to work with problem solving in different ways, by finding hidden dog treats, e.g. to lift blocks, turn discs, push blocks, put blocks inside something etc. All dogs need to use their brain in order to keep healthy. Some dogs need more brain activity than others. If dogs are not provided with an outlet for their energy in the form of different types of activity or other stimulation, they can sometimes find their own “activity” which we as dog-owners often do not appreciate, like chewing things to pieces, becoming aggressive or just generally hyperactive.
The activity toys are also very good to use when the dog for various reasons cannot move about freely, e.g. when injured or limping.
Activating a dog can be anything from letting the dog do tracking in the woods, teaching it different tricks, obedience training or hiding treats in a room and letting the dog find it. In the summer when the weather is good and it is not raining, the dogs normally get more stimulation, it is easier and more fun to be outside and play and come up with activities for your dog. In the fall and winter it can be boring when it is raining or snowing, or cold and windy. At the same time it is often hard to vary the activities indoors and think of fun activities that are entertaining, simple and stimulating. This has inspired Nina Ottosson Dog Activity Toys or “party games”, for dog and dog-owner.
3. Learning, Contact
These activity toys/games are easy to get out and fun to use both for the dog and the owner. While the games are being used, the dog and the owner will get a chance to have more contact with each other. At the same time, there is a learning process of common everyday obedience during fun and positive moments, like for instance: sit, lie down, stay and wait, while you are hiding the treats in the games. Search, when the dog can start looking. Stop, stay, or back up when the dog is too rough or is doing things the wrong way. Fetch, for lifting the blocks. Finished, when you think the dog or the exercise is finished and it is time for the dog to stop and relax.
Inactivity is just as important as activity, i.e. the dog has to learn to lie still and be able to relax when you tell it to do so.
Brain exercises with these activity toys/games are suitable for all dogs, young or old, big or small. The activity time that fits most dogs is approximately 15 minutes at a time, shorter for puppies. The dog-activating toys are also recommended by veterinarians when the dog for various reasons is not allowed, or cannot move freely due to illness etc. Dog psychologists and instructors also use these games in their courses and training sessions.
