- Dogs Sense of smell
Teach your dog to discover his/ her favourite toy using his/her nose this is a great game for the mind. All dogs have a great sense of smell, however, they need to work on it and use this skill. This exercise will get your dog excited in solving problems, using one of their strongest senses. Set up a set of six paper cups (PLEASE TRY NOT TO USE PLASTIC) set the cups upside down, without your puppy or dog seeing you hide your dog’s favourite ovo egg place under one cup. Next, encourage your dog to use his nose to find the ovo egg, then lift the cup and cheer and congratulate your dog, throw your dog toy to watch it bounce in all directions and congratulate him/her on retrieving the dog toy. Your dog will now know what’s expected of him/her and will use his powerful sense to play. You could add more paper cups further between. This will be great fun for your dog and will find it fun chasing down his CATCH great fun.
- Hide and let your dog seek
If you have trained your dog to “find it” then hide and let your dog seek, this is a fantastic indoor game to play with his favourite dog toy. To play show him an OVO Egg you’re going to hide and put it somewhere he can’t see you. Then go get your dog and tell him to “find it” or similar command you may use to look for something. Give him some clues when he is getting close ask the question "where’s your OVO" when he gets closer still say close "Good boy/girl. If your dog is going further away from the dog toy, give some hints if needed, by pointing or walking near the area where the Ovo Egg is hidden. When he/she finds it makes a Big Deal! congratulate and cuddle😊. Make the search all worthwhile. As this game goes on, he/she will get better and faster finding the eggs.
My cockapoo loves this game and has become an expert at it. I put him in the utility room and close the door whilst hide the toy in the house, banging and closing doors around the house to ensure he hasn’t just followed the sounds of my footsteps. He always goes to the last place I hid his favourite dog toy, but I always find another place to put the OVO egg, some good places in the laundry basket, bookshelf just above his head height, behind the curtains, under the rug next to the fire. Be sure to keep changing places and challenge your dog by getting creative this will keep his/her brain and body well engaged and HAPPY.
Train your dog balance an ovo on his head or nose this will teach your dog to be patient as you will teach a command calm/patience. then go get it he will soon snap and run with his favourite toy most of the time, however, won’t catch and will bounce all in different directions this is even more fun for your dog but make sure no expensive cups/plates around as these could be soon crashing to the floor
