Pet Exercise Idea: Magic Cup Mental Exercise

cups mental exercise

Physical exercise is good and all, but it’s not the be-all and end-all of your furparenting.

If you want to have a happy and healthy dog, it’s important to keep them mentally stimulated, too.

Here’s one easy mental exercise that you can do – even at home!

Magic Cup Mental Exercise

What you need:

  • A bored pupper
  • 3 opaque cups
  • A bag of treats


  1. Get three cups and put them upside down in front of your dog.
  2. Take a small treat and place it inside one of the cups.
  3. Shift the places of the three cups and have your dog select which cup has the treat.
  4. They’ll automatically use their sense of smell to find the treat.
  5. Once they start sniffing the right cup, turn the cup over and let them have the treat.
  6. Rinse and repeat!
