Think of this activity as a dog-friendly version of the classic "musical chairs" game. The idea behind this musical statues activity is to get your dog to stay as still as, well, a statue while you walk around them in a circle. Let your dog know that they're doing a good job by saying something like "good" or "great job" every time they stay still and they'll eventually get the hang of this unconventional game.
All dogs love spending hours upon hours playing with their favorite toys, but putting those toys away after an intense session is an entirely different story. Doesn't it make you wish there was a way to get your dog to think of cleaning up after themselves as another game? Well, this activity may be the answer to your prayers; the next time your dog is done playing with their toys, encourage them to put their toys away by showing them where to put their toys and then giving them a treat for each toy they successfully stash away.
