I think I’ve invented what could be an Easter Hunt for dogs instead of young kids.
Every once in a while when my puppy seems to be acting hungry or deserves a treat I’ll get a very small handful of dry dog food. I throw a couple on the ground ahead of me and whiles she’s occupied I’ll drop one or two somewhere else. Throwing one on a couch or chair, at the base of the stairs and so on.
She loves it. It becomes a food hunt for her and it keeps her busy for 10 to 15 minutes at a time because even once she’s retrieved all the hidden treats she’ll keep checking around to make sure she didn’t miss any. I guess that’s probably because the smell of the food is still hanging around.
Do you do fun things with your dog or other pets to make it think and have some fun?
