You've seen the shell game, but have you ever tried it with your dog? Bosties are smart dogs that love a little challenge. All it takes is a few minutes, three small cups, treats, and a curious little Bostie for this great activity. This is a cheap activity that can be performed any time no matter what the weather is like. The shell game is a great way to work on your Bostie's sense of smell, which should be keen enough to find the correct cup with the treat underneath even after you have moved all of the cups around on the floor or table.
For a fun, messy time with your Bostie, try your hand (and paw) at finger painting. You need a canvas, non-toxic finger paints, towels, a place to put the paint, and cleaning supplies to create a wonderful masterpiece with your pooch. Paw painting can be done indoors or outdoors depending on where you deem the best place to make a mess. You will need to spend a little money on the canvas and paints, but this isn't an expensive activity by any means. It is a good idea to choose an outdoor area or space, or an enclosed indoor space that will be easy to clean up such as the bathroom, laundry room, or garage.
Everyone loves a relaxing massage, and your Bostie is no exception! Get your hands ready to give your dog the best massage. Doggy massages are a great way to help your dog relax and feel pampered without spending any money. You can quickly perform a great massage regardless of the weather or your financial situation, which makes it the perfect activity for you and your Bostie. Once you're ready, get a towel or blanket to put your dog on top of for a little extra comfort and lots of water to prevent dehydration after the rubdown. This is all you need to give your dog a successful massage.
