Pets Indoor Play with Rubber OVO EGGS by Lanco
Baby, it is Cold Outside! Let's play inside with our favorite dog toy.
Great ideas to keep your dog fit indoors and engaged during the festive period.
There are some fantastic games out there where your dog must figure out where the eatable treat is. These games are suitable for the short term but are NOT the answer! This is FOOD and doesn't require much movement from your dog; Some Mental engagement is there but NO action. It's one maybe for the end of Christmas day. It's like playing monopoly while eating a box of your favorite chocolate; you will be Engaged / Entertained but not keeping healthy.
Here are some excellent ideas that will tire your dog, keep them fully engaged Mentally and Physically, and every bit as FUN:) as it's Cold Outside! All you will need for this is a pack of his favorite natural rubber OVO the eggs.
Dog's Sense of smell
Teach your dog to discover their favorite toy using their nose; this is an excellent 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 excite your dog about solving problems using one of their most vital 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 favorite ovo egg placed under one cup. Next, encourage your dog to use his nose to find the ovo egg, lift the cup and cheer and congratulate your dog, throw your dog toy to watch it bounce in all directions, and commend them on retrieving it. Your dog will now know what's expected of them and use his powerful Sense to play. You could add more paper cups further between. 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 favorite 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 they find it makes a Big Deal! Congratulate and cuddle😊. Make the search all worthwhile. As this game progresses, they will get better and faster at finding the eggs.
My cockapoo loves this game and has become an expert at it. I put him in the utility room and closed the door while hiding the toy in the house, banging and closing doors around the house to ensure he hadn't just followed the sounds of my footsteps. He always goes to the last place I hid his favorite 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 their brain and body engaged and HAPPY.
Balance Train your dog to 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 get it; he will soon snap and run with his favourite toy most of the time; however, it won’t catch and will bounce all in different directions; this is even more fun for your dog but make sure there are no expensive cups/plates around as these could be soon crashing to the floor
Well, you have probably guessed it.
Running on the stairs can give your dog a good workout, make a game of it, and burn some severe energy. Start at the bottom of the stair to get the best out of this game with the least potential risk to your dog's joints. Engage your dog with their favourite Dog toy, and ensure he sits and waits for the command. Maybe build up as you're going to throw Ready steady GO! Let your dog run for the catch. He will run as fast as he can, chasing after the bouncing OVO egg. But on the way down, try to teach him to slow down on his descent to ensure NO injury. After 8- 10 of these, he will be ready to curl up for asleep. (VERY IMPORTANT NOTE) Please ensure your dog is over one year of age after their joists are fully formed. You could cause long-term damage if you are playing this game with a puppy or dogs not best suited for stairs.Get your perfect Christmas pet from Amazon or www.naturalrubbertoys.co.uk; great gift or Stocking filler.

Tidy up and chill out time
Cleaning up can be fun, too, when your dog knows how to put his dog toys away! This game is Fun and Easy; just scatter your Lanco OVO Eggs over the house and have your dog find each one and put them in his Doggy toy box to earn a treat. Start with teaching you do “put it away” means. Your dog should pick up a toy and carry it to his doggy basket.
