Is your dog exceptionally smart?
Well, I know that most of us feel like our dog is the smartest most adorable dog in the whole wide world, but there are actually ways to raise your dog’s IQ to make them even smarter!
It is essential for our dogs to be stimulated through play and exercise but there are certain dog games and dog toys that will pose a real challenge for the canine brain cells.
The Nina Ottosson Dog Smart Game is one of the unusual dog toys that will allow you to interact with your dog while creating a fun “quiz” type of game for them.
The Dog Smart Game consists of a round wooden board with holes around the edges and small hollow pegs that fit perfectly into the round holes. You will place your dog’s favorite treats under certain hollow pegs and then challenge your dog to figure out where the treats are hiding and how to get them out of the game board and into their mouth!
This game is made in an environmentally friendly manner. All non-wood parts are made from recycled materials
IMPORTANT: This game is intended for use only when you are available to supervise and assist. There are small wooden pieces involved that should not be chewed or swallowed. Make sure you don’t leave it lying around on the floor for your dog to find.
This game comes in two sizes and costs about $40.00.
