    Lightbulb Dog Activities and Games

    Hello,

    I wondered if anyone has suggestions for activities for my pup Johnny.

    I freeze his food into iceblocks for hot days. We are go to flyball and agility. We also hike. We play hide the treat (under plastic cups so he sniffs it out). But I am always looking for new games to play and other activities to try.

    Do you have a favourite? What can you suggest? I certainly would love to hear it!

    We do a little obedience training but Johnny prefers faster paced activities (hence the agility and flyball).

    Those IQ puzzles look good! Thanks for the link. We have a kong but I am always looking for different toys - I don't want him to get bored!

    Well if you meant outdoors stuff
    We go tracking and we do training for water rescue, plus a lot of Obedience and agility for fun. with our large dogs, you cannot do serious agility.
    Dogs love tracking and it is a very free for the dog sport, because they are in charge.
    My dogs love water training, because it is swimming and retrieving combined, so fun....
    We also have a tree in our kennel run and we hang empty milk bottle and ropes from it. the dogs entertain themselves with those. We have a sandpit in their run and if it is hot we also put in the kiddie pool. But our dogs are not locked away very often, because hubby works from home

    I do "its yer choice" and start line stays and release as a game and hide and seek, and recall games of lots of different sorts, and general dog trick training, and a small amount of extremely gentle wrestling pushy shove ie crawling around on the floor and leaning on each other - ie no teeth allowed. and tug, and fetch (though she's still crap at that), and chase me (ideally she chases me not the other way about but dogs like you to take turns).

    A buster cube is a good way to keep them entertained, they can't destroy them as easily as a ball either.
