‘Toybox Treats’ – Step by Step – Dog Games for Fun
Time for a bit of fun…
- Throw some tasty treats into your dog’s toybox
- Wait for them to focus on you
- Say ‘Go’ and let your dog rush to their toybox…
- Enjoy watching them go snuffling crazy!
Definitely avoid crumbly treats – the mess – the ongoing, never-ending mess – argggh.
Add ‘Ready, Steadyyyyy… Go!’ to get them really excited.
If you use dry food this is a great way for your dog to work for their dinner.
