Activity description

One way you can give your Engatzu Spaniel some mental stimulation is by teaching them how to play the shell game. A Spaniel's sense of smell is well-developed, so your pooch should learn this activity without much effort. They'll enjoy looking for a tasty treat and spending time with you as they play the game. Start with one cup when you teach your pooch. Once Fido can quickly go to the container and knock it over to get the reward, add more shells. Soon, you'll be to present your fur-baby with four cups and have them find the one that has a tasty piece of food under it.

Step
1
Teach them to find it
Start with one container that's about the size of a coffee cup. Show your pooch a treat, then place it under the shell and tell Fido to find it. When they touch the saucer or knock it over with their nose, let them have the goodie. Repeat this step a few times.
Step
2
Add cups
When Fido understands the concept, add a second cup. Only place a treat under one container, then shift them around on the ground and give the "find it" command. Praise every success. Once your furry friend can pick the vessel with the food every time, add another cup. With practice, you can add a fourth container. Play this game any time to entertain you and your pal.
