Got a bored dog at home? If you’d like to mentally stimulate them and play with them at the same time, you should try out the Muffin Tin game.

What’s the Muffin Tin mental exercise?

The Muffin Tin game is a great mental exercise that fully engages your dog and rewards them for their attention and efforts.

When dogs are bored, they can become destructive and naughty. By engaging them in a mentally stimulating game, you’re not only helping them cope with boredom, but you’re also giving them lots of yummy treats as a reward. Win-win, right?

What you need:

  • A bored pupper
  • A muffin tin
  • Yummy dog treats
  • Dog toys


  1. Take your muffin tin out and place it on a table or a counter.
  2. Get some delicious dog treats and drop one on some of the holes.
  3. Put some toys on top of the holes, covering the dog treats.
  4. Let your dog sniff around to find the treat!
