With the current lockdown restrictions perhaps meaning that our pooches can’t get out and about as much as normal, I thought I would share this video I made back in the summer with Barking Heads.
This easy game can be played with a case specifically made for dogs (check out your local pet shop), a child’s pencil case, or you could even be creative with any type of fabric style pouch. The game can also be played indoors or outdoors so no need to wait for a dry day!
Our power of our dogs’ noses is much much greater than our own so don’t under estimate the enjoyment your dog will get from playing such a simple game! Make sure the tasty treats inside are something your dog really enjoys and values to get the most out of the game. With each successful ‘find’ your dog has, up the complexity and difficulty level!
Let me know if you give it a go! Tag me in your photos and videos. I would also love to hear what else you’ve been up to with your dogs to keep both you and them entertained.
