Indoor training activities for winter!

I'm sure I saw a thread once on ideas but can't find it now.

What training/games do you do inside when the weather is to nasty to be outside?

Perch Training is listed in Agility...

Re: Indoor training activities for winter!

We just set up one jump in a hallway a few days ago. She is loving that, and caught on really fast. Thanks to MaggieRoseLee for the idea.

Find it! is fantastic. Hide & Seek is fun too and good for recalls...the problem for me is getting Tara to go far enough away from me that I can hide!

If you have stairs you could "gently" toss a ball up to the top and let her run up to get it. Bring it back and repeat.

Re: Indoor training activities for winter!

It sure is hard to go outside in the frigid cold when you have an active pup!.

So far our indoor activities are playing find it games. I'll hide her treats or kibble and she has to go find it. I've also been teaching her some tricks and some weaving through my legs. Since she's only 7 months i can't have her go up and down the stairs. I am a worried wart that i'll strain her joints out!.

Re: Indoor training activities for winter!

I tried to get Balto to perch. Wouldn't do it. He's too polite. Maybe I'll try again later.

I'm currently working on getting them to jump through a hula hoop, however, Balto must think I'm going to whack him with it or something. And he's never been whacked that I know of. I guess he just knows that hula hoops are dangerous. Ciana thinks it's great fun to show off, though.

Anyway, Canine Freestyle is easy to train indoors.

Re: Indoor training activities for winter!

- Hide and Seek (use "wait" command while human hides, then recall!!)
- Cheese Search and Rescue (Glory waits while I "hide" cheese she has to find)
- Practice our obedience training
- Play silly games with balls and throw them around and act crazy!
