Do you have a dog that is a handful? Does he constantly get into things that he shouldn't be? Does he have what feels like endless energy? Well, you're not alone. A lot of people are in the same boat with their dog. The good news is that there are different things that can be done to occupy your dog. I am going to tell you about them now.
1. Teaching Your Dog To Use Its Nose:
This is a fun one. It only takes a couple minutes of your time to hide the treats, and if hidden well enough, it can take the dog 5, 10, or even 15 minutes to find them all. Here is a video to show you how to do this with your dog.
2. Giving Your Dog An Interactive Toy:
An interactive toy is a toy that you stick some food into and give to your dog. The toy makes your dog work for the food that is in it. There are lots of different toys to choose from. They also come in different difficulty levels. Make sure that you get an easy one to start! Check out the video below. In it you'll see my dog using a toy called the "Monster Ball" made by Jolly Pets.
3. Using Dog Daycare:
While this isn't necessarily a game, it is something that you can do that makes your life a little easier. Going to a daycare for a dog equals lots of running and playing with other dogs. If your dog enjoys being in a large group of dogs, this could be a good fit for you.
