There are some amazing games by Nina Ottosson where your dog has to figure out the puzzle to find the treat. I have a few for my dog, and they’re good for short-term, supervised entertainment. The only problem is that while these are entertaining, they’re also food-based and don’t require a whole lot of movement from your dog. The mental engagement is there, but physical exercise isn’t. It’s kind of like playing a board game while eating a whole bowl of popcorn and chocolate pretzels — you’re entertained, but not staying healthy.
