This was on my other computer before I got my new imac with imovie. So, I thought I would post it anyway. I also had it posted and for some reason the audio stopped playing. So, I uploaded it again. Sorry, if you have already watched it.
This is a fun game to play with your dog that can prevent many behavior problems, give your dog mental stimulation, exercise, and it is fun for everyone in the family.
Dogs love to find things! Not to mention it is a natural behavior to want to search and find fun things.
I taught my dogs this game using clicker training and by slowly increasing the distance at which the item is placed until it is in another room, then in harder and more difficult places to encourage the dog to really have to search for it. One my dogs really understand the game, I hide multiple things for them to find. It really teaches the dog to use their senses.
This game is a fun activity, but could also be useful if training a search and rescue dog.
Have a great time with your dog!
Dogs are always learning, so hopefully they are learning good acceptable behaviors instead of developing unacceptable ones.
