Making puppy work mentally - how do I do this method?
I got this from another site and I'm wondering how to teach the dog what it's supposed to do, to get the treat....
"Anything that makes them think hard is good for them. It doesn’t have to be complicated, just engaging… kind of like canine sudoku. One of my favorite stand-by’s is good old hide and seek. Have them practice sit and down stays while you hide their favourite toys around the house, releasing them on search missions that pay handfuls of kibble for each successful retrieve. It is an easy way to stretch the dinner bowl of kibble from a one minute feast into a half-hour of problem solving. Another fun option is to keep a trick of the month on the go that you hack away at for 10 minutes here and there."
