Conclusion

Some of these toys (especially the puzzle ones) really do best with supervision - so do some trial runs with these toys while you are at home. 

Some dogs are quicker at figuring out the pattern than others. Be mindful - if your dog likes to destroy things, some of these toys may be kind of small for his size and he may try to just EAT them.
