Treat hide and seek is another variation of the hunt for dinner game. You are using the dog's natural scenting ability to locate their favorite treats which you have hidden in a variety of locations, either inside or out, which are either easily found or more challenging. The dog seeks out the treat and enjoys the reward.
The basic theory behind this game is to cater to a dog's natural water-loving tendency. The goal of the game is to see how far the dog can jump into the water from a dock to retrieve a toy, tossed into the water by the dog's owner or handler. Dock Dog Diving is a competitive game which couples you and your dog as a team to compete against other teams for the win.
Some dogs love to dig, but they don't always do so in a manner which we owners appreciate. To protect your flower beds, why not build your little digger their own space for this activity? This digging box, constructed of wood pieces, sand, and a plastic cover, can be made to any depth you desire. All of these materials can be purchased at your local hardware store if you don't have them laying around the house.
Since your precious pup is a tracker and hunter at heart, they will love this game. You can play it any time you feed them, and they will never tire of it. Hide the kibbles or treats that you're planning to feed them and allow them to search and savor their rewards.
