Being confined is not easy for us and for our furry friends. That’s why we want to share with you some funny games to challenge your dog during these hard days and keep him or her mentally stimulated. Grab some treats and let’s play!

Recommended treats:

Subzero Freeze-Dried Dog Treats or Grain Free Cabin Cuts Treats

Find the Treats

Find the treats is easy to play, and it’s a fun way for dogs to use some of their natural sniffing abilities.

How to play

  1. Grab some treats and have your dog sit in a stay position
  2. While your dog is in the stay position, put a few treats on the ground around them
  3. Give your dog a release command and tell them to “find the treats”
  4. Encourage them as they start picking up the treats
  5. Practice a few times until your dog understands what “find the treats” means
  6. Start placing the treats further away and repeat steps 3 & 4
  7. Start placing the treats in more challenging places that are out of sight such as under a rug or on a chair and repeat steps 3 & 4

The Cup Game

This simple game is perfect to work on their solving skills.

How to play

  1. Grab 3 cups and some treats
  2. Have your dog watch as you place a treat under one of the three cups
  3. Shuffle the cups around
  4. Encourage your dog to find the cup with the treat underneath

Hide and Seek

It can be fun for you and your dog to play Hide and Seek much like you would with a child. If your dog doesn’t have a good stay command, you can ask your kids to help by having them distract your dog as you go and hide.

How to play

  1. Have your dog sit in a stay position
  2. Find a hiding spot
  3. Call your dog
  4. Reward them when they find you
