Default Brain toys

We just purchased a Kong Wobbler & our soon to be 5 month old pup LOVES it. He gets 2 meals a day with this toy. He gets all excited when he sees it. Takes about 20 minutes to extract 2 cups of kibble. He calms down after & is always ready for a nap. i am wondering about other brain teasers that people have had experience with. I want to keep his mind working. Any suggestions will be appreciated. Thanks

I like the
Buster Cube Buster Cube
.

Just be warned that it's LOUD. When one of mine gets going spinning it in the house on the hardwood floors, it makes quite a racket.

I've tried a couple of brain teaser toys and have to say that Stosh figured them out so fast the he quit playing with them after a few times. We did things like play tug, hide 'n seek and doggie push-ups. Have your pup sit, down, stand, sit, down, stand, repeat. I used treats intermittently to keep him guessing when he'd get one. That game still wears him out

My pup likes the brain teasers/ treat toys but his absolute favorite game is hide and seek. His tail wags so fast when he finds you and is just so excited, he's practically grinning. Try putting his meal in the Kong in parts, my puppy would get them out so fast when it was full that I split his meal up to make it a bit harder. You can also play 'find it' with his kibble to get him using his nose. We used to play it but he has a bad habit of hoovering everything outside on the ground so I stopped for now to not encourage the ground eating but he thought that was fun too.
