1. Treat Strategy Puzzles
Pugs are very playful and intelligent. Channel their energy and curiosity into something positive with some fun and challenging treat-delivering puzzle toys. These games reward your pug for correctly opening the various compartments. Simply enter the treats and let the activity begin.
The OurPets IQ Treat Ball is a fun rendition of a slow feed bowl that promotes a healthy lifestyle for your pug. You can put a portion of your pug’s meal in the ball, only allowing them to eat what is dispensed when the ball is rolled. It can be filled with treats or kibble and set to a desired difficulty level using the ball’s adjustable interior disc. This toy promotes active feeding, giving your pugs the exercise they need and then rewarding them for it.
The Trixie Dog Activity Board Strategy Game is sure to provide plenty of stimulation and fun for your pug. Your pug gets the treats by using different techniques for opening indentations. The game board comes with two cones and indentations with hinged lids and sliders. Just place the treats inside and their ready to play.
Outward Hound is one of our favorite dog brands. They have multiple interactive dog toys, but our pugs love the Outward Hound Kibble Drop Interactive Puzzle. This is a treat-seeking puzzle for your smarty pug! When treats are dropped into the top of the toy, they fall randomly into one of the four treat chambers covered by flaps. Your pug must determine which chamber the treat has fallen into and which flap to lift in order to retrieve the treat. Scent holes on the chambers assist in your pug's search for the reward!
