DOG GAMES OF THE WEEK!

JAN 06 2016/NANNETTE SABATER/OBEDIENCE, DOG GAMES

Who says games are just for kids? Our furry friends want in on the action too! That is why Hide-and-Seek is rapidly becoming a popular game among dog lovers, especially with its wonderful capability to be played indoors or outdoor (in a safe and closed-off environment).

HOW TO PLAY

Have someone hold back your dog while another person hides (if your playing solo, drop a few yummy treats on the floor while you hide). Once a person is hiding tell your dog to “Go Seek”. Your dog will love burning off both the physical and mental energy it takes to find you!

*To add difficulty, have multiple people hide and tell your dog to “Seek” a specific person. *If your dog is having trouble finding you, simply bring a squeak toy while hiding and give it a few squeezes!

Believe it or not, this game has the added training benefits of sharpening your dog’s focus and listening skills. By having your dog find you in a fun way, you are conditioning your dog to be aware of you in distracting environments.
