There is a major connection between dog training and dog games that one can easily attach the two together because they actually go hand in hand. Here is a top ten list of the games that will wear out your dog and probably yourself as you train him.
Think of a favorite toy that you can use in playing fetch with your dog. Of course, we all know this is a simple game because the dog gets to do most of the work. Although some dogs don’t just like playing fetch, at least every dog will try bringing it back when you throw it.
9) Backyard Bobbing:
This is one of the best games that can wear your dog out during summer. All you need is a wading pool and some rubber toy. Fill the pool with water and put a toy in the water before placing it in the garden. Let him start playing under your watch because he might get too excited and wear out completely. Distract the dog with another game whenever you feel enough is enough.
8) Mystery Tour:
You can use blocks and boxes in making a amaze in your backyard and make the dog to run through.
7) Hide and Seek:
Besides doing it yourself, you can use certain toys in training the dog on how to find things by playing the hide and seek game. You’ll be surprised at how your dog will be helping you in finding certain items in the house in the future if you keep playing the hide and seek game for a long period of time.
Remember, there are certain dogs that believe water is evil and so, if your dog doesn’t like water skip this game! But if your dog doesn’t have a problem, you should consider having fun watching him swim. In other words, you’ll have fun with your best friend swimming. Try doing some fetch games during swimming too.
4) What’s That?
That is the question that you’ll ask yourself when she poses some stances while out there playing. Be very observant to encourage or discourage your dog from pulling certain unsafe stances.
3) Saddle Bag:
If your dog is used to putting on doggie sweaters, then getting a saddle bag for your dog isn’t a bad a idea. It also looks cool and fun to walk with him while carrying it.
2) Horse and Buggy:
Whatever people think about it, this is a good idea that most dog owners across the country have grabbed. The dog has practice for some time to be able to understand the tricky though.
1) Leave It:
Try to hold a preferred treat in your hand and let your dog try to sniff it and take hold of it but make sure that you don’t give it to him. Once he has stopped trying to grab then give it to him and some praises to go along with it. By day three your dog will have learned the “leave it alone” technique.
