If your Malton will do anything for a treat, you can consider burning some of their energy with treat toys. These are interactive toys that contain treats that your dog has to work for. There are many varieties of treat toys, so you can choose the type that works best for your pooch. Some of these toys will require your dog to tip the toy to release small treats, while others like the Kong toys can be filled with a soft, foamy treat or frozen peanut butter or broth for a tasty playtime. Fortunately, most of these toys and the things that go inside are pretty cheap.
Almost every dog loves a good game of fetch! Your Malton is probably no exception. You can find a ball or grab their favorite toy without buying anything new, so this is a very cheap (possibly even free) activity. If you don't have much room in your home, it is best to play fetch outdoors. For this reason, you will most likely only play fetch when it there is nice weather. If your Malton has already passed basic training, they probably know the "drop it" command, which can make fetch a lot easier for you, because they will drop the toy or ball on command instead of starting a secondary game of tug-of-war after each throw.
Everyone loves a good game of hide and seek, and your Malton is going to love this fun version that provides them with a lot of tasty treats. Keep your dog busy for about 20 minutes with a couple of fun rounds of treat hide and seek, where you hide a bunch of treats around your house. This is a great rainy day activity, and it is basically free if you use treats that you already have on hand. Plus, it is super easy to teach your dog, because they are going to be able to sniff out the treats hidden in the house.
