Puzzle feeders are a great way to make your pet work for their food, which provides the mental stimulation of hunting that’s lost when we present their kibble in bowls. When we rounded up the very best food puzzles for cats and dogs, Dr. Mikel Delgado recommended this beginner dog toy from Nina Ottosson, whom veterinarian Dr. Ernie Ward describes as “a pioneer in the space.” Today, this brick food puzzle from the brand is nearly 70 percent off at $5 (from $16), the steepest discount we’ve ever seen on this expert-approved pet feeder.

Perfect for dry food or treats, the interactive toy lets your pup lift bone-shaped pieces to reveal food in hidden compartments. (Each of the brand’s puzzles has a different level of difficulty; this is a level-one toy.) But should your pet require a more advanced option, we found three more on-sale Nina Ottosson puzzles below.
