Minimalist Treat-Dispensing Puzzle by Up Dog Toys

View all 9 Photos

Based in Seattle, Washington, Up Dog Toys is a young brand inspired by Odin, the designers’ Corgi. Up Dog Toys’ first product, also named Odin, is a treat-dispensing puzzle that’s beautifully designed and safe for both canine and human handling. The geometric prototype is minimalist in slate, though additional colors may be available in the future. The faceted design is large enough for big dogs, but users have the option of connecting multiple units together to create larger, more complex games their pups. Unusually attractive and durable for a dog toy, the Odin is non-toxic, food-safe, and dishwasher-safe. Check out what all of the barking is about on Kickstarter, where Up Dog Toys is crowdfunding until Nov 13, 2014.
