It’s no secret that a dog needs exercise to keep them happy and healthy. While a walk around the society and playing fetch are important elements of an active dog’s routine, looking for other things to occupy their time will keep them curious and engaged so that you can be sure your dog is having fun.
Well, here’s some exciting games to play with your dog to keep your fur baby happy and
Dogs are highly intelligent and have even been known to be able to solve basic puzzles by themselves. Playing a puzzle game with your dog is a great way to keep your dog entertained and challenged. Puzzles keep your dog mentally stimulated, give him something to do, and help build his problem solving skills. You can offer them treats or use it as an opportunity to bond.
Play Tug of War
Keep your dog’s tail wagging by playing tug of war. The game is not only fun for you and your dog, but it also has several other benefits. These games are beneficial for dogs, as long as you maintain control. Teach the puppy a signal that means stop and let go. This signal should be different from the signal to start the game. They also can improve your dog’s behavior: if you teach your dog the right way to play tug, it can improve his overall obedience. If you win, then he has to respect your dominance, which will make him easier to control in other areas as well.
Make sure to have plenty of rope toys available for them to tug on so they don’t use shoes in doorways and other dangerous items.
Play The Which Hand Game with your dog
The Which Hand Game is a great way to help your dog learn to listen to you and stay focused during training sessions. With the Which Hand Game, you can teach your dog to respond quickly and accurately when you give them a command. The game is easy to play. All you have to do is this:
Show your dog two closed fists, then open one hand and show them something tasty.
Encourage them to choose which hand has the treat in it. If they choose correctly, reward them immediately. If they choose incorrectly, place a treat in their mouth from the open hand (so it looks like they got it right – but don’t let them know!)
If they start choosing randomly or refusing to choose at all, go back a step and start again from there until they are happy with their choices again.
It’s time to play fetch with your dog! Playing fetch is a great way to burn off energy and keep your dog happy. Every dog loves to play fetch, and it’s a great way to bond with your pooch. Just be careful not to overdo it; once you start playing, your dog may want to keep going until he’s completely exhausted. So try to stop once he seems tired.
Playing fetch with your dog is easy, all you need is a ball or toy. Pick up the ball and throw it. As soon as your dog catches the ball, say “Drop it” and toss it again. Repeat this until your dog drops the ball because he wants to play another round of fetch. When he does this, reward him with praise and petting.
Make sure your dog gets enough exercise. Playing around with your dog is a great way to bond with them and get them tired. A tired dog is a good dog, so play around until they’re pooped! They’ll appreciate the time with their humans, and it will help them stay healthy too!
