Nina Ottosson Tornado

Is your dog a destructor dog? Do you find when you are away and then when you get home part of your furniture, the house, their beds have been chewed up and/or destroyed? Your dog may be BORED and looking for something to do to pass the time till you get home! The best way to help with destructive behaviour is by stimulating your dogs inner desire to forage and use their sense or smell and their stimulate their brains to fill in part of the day that they are not sleeping. That is where interactive toys and puzzles are great to provide your dogs with something to do and distract them from wanting to chew up their beds or part of the house.

“The Tornado” Level 2

Nina Ottosson Interactive Dog Toys and Puzzles are a great idea to help relieve your dogs boredom at home. There are varying styles and levels of challenges available. It dispenses food as your dog uses his or her nose and paws to move compartments exposing the dogs treats encouraging your dog to work and forage for their food. The position of each compartment changes so your dog has to spin each layer in alternating directions to reach each treat compartment. This mentally challenges and satisfies many dogs who after a while are so tired from their achievements they will often go to sleep and take a long due rest after their hard work.

How to use “The Tornado”?

The Nina Ottosson Tornado can also be used as an alternative to a dog bowl which helps to extend their meal intake whilst providing exercise for your dog. This can also assist with not over feeding if you put half or all of their meal daily intake throughout the day and any left over can be given for their dinner or alternatively if they have eaten all of it then that is their daily intake so that you are not then going to over feed your dog by giving more food at the end of the day preventing unnecessary weight gain.

I provide my dogs the Tornado in the morning before work with a portion of their dry kibble and treats so that they can forage for their food throughout the day. Any uneaten kibble left when I get home from work I will give to them for their dinner, this ensures that I am not over feeding them causing them to gain weight.

Easy to Wash and Clean

Made of plastic, the dog tornado is very easy to clean even though it has a multitude of compartments.

You can use your imagination and put any type of food in it, from

  • Dry Dog Food or Kibble,
  • Treats,
  • Peanut butter, or Kong paste or similar,
  • wet food,
  • Raw Food or Mince
  • Biscuits

Size: 23,5 x 18 cm, height 7 cm / 9,25 x 7 in, height 2,76 in.

The Tornado is great for dogs and families and every household with dogs. Not only is it entertaining for your dog and good for their happiness, stimulation and wellbeing it also is enjoyable for you as the pet owner to watch your dog playing and enjoying uncovering their rewards.
