4. Hide and seek with tiny treats!
This game helps your dog practice two skills: stay & nose work! Get them to sit and stay in their bed. Depending on your dog, you can have them watch you "hide" training treats around the room, or go into the next room. With my dog, I simply place the treats on windowsills, low tables, in the middle of the floor – that's enough of a challenge for him. He's a bit of a goober. When you're ready, say, "Go get 'em!" and let your dog out of their 'stay'. You may have to point out the first treat or two, but they'll get the hang of this pretty fast!
5. Make Your Own Brain Game Super quick & fun little hack! Check out this video. Have a hack of your own to share? We'd love to hear it! Send it our way :)
