Find It Game: Easy Mental Workout For Your Dog

Dogs need mental stimulation just as much as they need physical activity. A tired dog is a good dog, and a mentally-stimulated dog is an even better dog. If your pup is starting to show signs of boredom or mischief, it might be time to give them some extra mental stimulation.

Playing the Find It Game

One easy mental workout for your dog that you can try today is the “find it” game. This game is simple: all you need is a few small treats or pieces of kibble.

Place a handful of treats around your house (indoor and/or outdoor) and let your dog use its mind (and nose) to find the treats.

Just like a human would get mentally tired from focusing on a task, the same can be said for a dog. After a few minutes, call an end to the game and let your pup rest.

This game is great for dogs of all ages, and can be done as little or as often as you like. Special thanks to @kyrotheknight on Instagram for the wonderful demonstration! For more mental workouts for your precious pup, check out Pet.Fitness today!
