Dog Toys: Top 10 Best Puzzle Toys on Amazon
If you have a smart dog, like a standard poodle, dog toys that make your dog think will be indispensable. I’m sharing the top 10 best puzzle toys that I’ve found on Amazon for smart dogs like Phaedra.
Purchased by me.
1. Our Pets IQ Treat Ball Dog Toy
The Our Pets IQ Treat Ball Dog Toy is an awesome dog toy that you load up with small treats or pieces of dog food and then give to your dog. You can adjust the disc inside to set the difficulty from easiest to hardest to make your dog work for the treat.
2. Outward Hound Jigsaw Glider Interactive Dog Toy Puzzle
The Outward Hound Jigsaw Glider Interactive Dog Toy Puzzle has 4 different treat chambers you can fill with rewards. Like other treat toys, you can adjust the difficulty to make it challenging for your dog. However, depending how motivated your dog turns out to be, he may find a workaround for this one. Max, my pug, has been known to take this toy and bang it into the floor repeatedly until it pops open.
3. Kong Genius Dog Toy
The Kong Genius Dog Toy is actually really great because you can build on it with other Kong Genius dog toys to make it more challenging, or keep it basic. It’s pretty sturdy and you can fill with all different types of treats. Frozen treats are especially good with this one.
4. Kong Stuff-a-Ball Dog Toy
I have the Kong Stuff-a-Ball Dog Toy in two different sizes – one for Phaedra and one for Max. This is easily their favorite dog toy of the whole list. You stuff it with treats, just like the others, but you can toss this one for them to fetch, when it lands usually a small piece of the treat will pop out. Phaedra will even toss this one on her own.
5. PetSafe Busy Buddy Twist n’ Treat Dog Toy
The PetSafe Busy Buddy Twist n’ Treat Dog Toy is a fun purple disc shaped treat toy that you can make as easy or as hard as you want. One great way to use this one is to put peanut butter inside it, then give it to your dog to let them work at it.
6. PetSafe Busy Buddy Magic Mushroom Dog Toy
The PetSafe Busy Buddy Magic Mushroom Dog Toy is one I bought solely because it’s purple but it’s actually probably the most difficult toy that I have for Max. It rolls around and randomly will dispense his food, so it makes him exercise more than most other toys, which he needs.
7. EEToys IQ Treat Dispensing Ball
The EEToys IQ Treat Dispensing Wobbler Ball has two different chambers you can fill with food. It has 6 total holes the treats can come out, which helps keep your dog more engaged. This is a new one I’ve picked up for Phaedra since I like to rotate her toys to keep her more engaged.
8. West Paw Zogoflex Treat Toy
The West Paw Zogoflex Treat Toy is a brand new toy I found for Phaedra that’s supposed to be extremely durable. She’s a very determined chewer and can chew through just about anything, so I’m always looking for things that will last.
9. Outward Hound Paw Hide Treat Toy
The Outward Hound Paw Hide Treat Toy is super cute. You hide treats in the different chambers and the dog pops them off to get to the treats.
10. Kong Extreme Dog Toy
The Kong Extreme Dog Toy is a classic that every dog owner should have. I typically fill it with peanut butter and put it in the freezer, then pull it out to give the dogs a cool treat. It’s probably the most basic puzzle toy, but it will keep dogs entertained.
