Find it games are my favourite games. I love seeing her use her nose and searching.
I've even hidden a high value treat in my husband's shirt pocket. That was entertaining.

You want to have some fun buy a case of 36 tennis balls, open the cans with gloves on and number them, then throw them all over your yard while you dog is locked in. Take off the gloves and rub one ball real well let your dog out and tell him to find it, my dog always finds the correct # ball.

I'd have to say Ozzy enjoys it as long as it pertains to performing an activity or doing a job, rarely does he go out and smell for fun like my beardie will. Ozzy will occasionally track himself by mistake which is hilarious! We sit in the yard and watch him pick up a scent, we started to notice it resembled a familiar pattern we had seen recently such as playing fetch or him and Harry running around the yard. The look of embarrassment on his face when he realizes it himself he found is priceless!

do any of you hide things "off the ground". meaning sometimes when i hide
things in the house i'll place them on the seat of the chair, on a counter, on top
off a table, under a pillow on the bed, etc. outside i'll hide something on top
of the tire, on top off the trash can, on top of or in the middle of a bush,
on a door knob. i elevate things when hiding them so my dog raises his head

when you hide yourself do you have your dog in a position so they can't
see you go and hide? lol. sometimes when i hide things outside i'll
close the front door so the dog doesn't see which way i'm throwing
something. then i let the dog out and say "find it".

I know Delgado does, whenever I say "go get it" which is his search command his eyes just light up and he's off leaving behind a cartoon puff of smoke in his wake lol
He's darn determained too, one time we were playing fetch with a toy in a brushy area and I tossed the toy far enough I couldn't see where it landed. Delgado ran after it but came back without bringing the toy back, I sent him back out with the same result. After 2 times he got frustrated and barked at me and turned around but looked back as if to say "come on!" so I followed him and he was circling a large bush and the toy was caught about 7' off the ground in the very middle so he couldn't reach it. I admit I apologized to him for being a little dense, he was just thrilled to get his toy back

I think Lisl likes it.
We play with a ball and her Kong at the same time in the yard. I throw one and she gets it and brings it back and then I throw the other and the cycle repeats.
Well, sometimes she drops the ball early before getting all the way back to me and I don't notice or I've forgotten where by the time I've thrown the Kong.
Then I have to tell her to go find her ball. She first picks up the Kong if she isn't already holding it, and then proceeds to look for the ball. It's difficult to find by sight because it's green and brown. The same color as my yard right now with the leaves falling.
She does eventually find it and lets me know by dropping her Kong next to the ball. She's really quite good at this and I thought about maybe doing scent training with her.
