Games for Dogs

Hide & Seek
Hide treats in your house and watch your dog or cat find them. Be sure to let them know how proud you are of their accomplishment.

Kongs®
Fill a Kong® or other brand of rubberized toy with treats. Then, cover the opening with peanut butter. Place in the freezer. It will be ready when you need to leave the house and want something fun for your pet to do.

Tricks
Tricks are an easy way to encourage good behavior, but they also help the animal feel proud and useful! It is common for a dog to learn to sit, shake and lay down. Cats can learn these tricks too. Give it a try!

Movies
Play a cat or dog-friendly DVD on your TV. Cats and dogs are interested in TV, too. They just need the right movie to watch.

Bubbles
Get a bottle of pet-friendly bubbles and watch your dog or cat try to catch them!

Run & Chase
Tie a few cat or dog toys onto a string and walk through your house with it. Watch your dog or cat follow the toys.
