The Nina Ottosson Tornado game consists of 4 rotating layers that allow you to hide your dog’s treats. To get at the treats, your dog will have to rotate the different components. The Tornado game helps to stimulate your dog’s cognitive abilities, reduce its boredom and, in certain dogs, limit destructive behaviour.

Nina Ottosson has two adorable bouviers des Flandres, but she noticed with disappointment that when her two children were born, she had less time to spend with her dogs, particularly as the kids were just a year-and-half apart. During this time, she looked into how she could stimulate and keep her dogs busy, which led her to create and develop simple and educational puzzles. And this is how her brand was born. Her games and puzzles gradually gained in popularity and success and are now recommended by numerous veterinarians and canine behavioural scientists around the world.
To stimulate your dog’s mind and satisfy its needs, your dog needs 3 types of daily activities:
- Physical activity (walks, outdoor games, etc.)
- Intellectual activity (training, agility, intellectual games)
- Chewing activities (eating and chew toys)
The Nina Ottosson Tornado game helps your dog to satisfy its intellectual needs by stimulating its mind and its problem resolution skills. Preparing and using the game allows you to reinforce the bond you have with your dog and you’ll also have the daily opportunity to practice certain commands during your play session (sit, stay, etc.).

You can help your dog a bit by demonstrating how the game works. You can also adjust the tone of your voice to encourage your dog to look for the treats.

Always watch your dog when you're engaging it with this game so that it doesn't destroy the plastic game components.
