Beyond Fetch: Enriching Games and Activities for Dogs

Let’s get the tails wagging, tongues panting, and hearts full of love with some fun games for you and your dog. Playtime with your pooch helps you strengthen your bond, plus it keeps your pup moving and grooving for a happy, healthy life.

Try these enriching games and activities for dogs that you can do at home or on the go!

1. Hide and Seek

A true classic never dies. There’s more than one way to play this quintessential game with your dog. 

You can hide and let your dog find you, or hide a toy and encourage them to seek it out. Start with easy hiding spots and gradually increase the difficulty for a fun challenge! 

2. Tug of War Tournament

Another childhood favorite, this lets you test your dog’s true strength while building your bond. 

Grab a tug toy and challenge your dog to a friendly game of tug-of-war. Here’s the catch: Let your dog win occasionally to keep the game fun and rewarding!

3. Treat Treasure Hunt

Who doesn’t love a good treasure hunt? In this game, there are only winners. 

Hide treats or toys around the house or yard and encourage your dog to find them. Use command cues like "find it" to help your dog understand the game and have a blast hunting for treasures! Use the words ‘hotter’ or ‘colder’ to encourage them if they are getting closer or discourage them if they are getting further away from the hidden toy.

(Tip: If you’re hiding multiple treats at a time, make sure you remember all your hiding spots so your treats don’t spoil!)

4. Bubble Bonanza

Bubbles aren’t just a joy for children; they can also captivate your pets and keep them active, too!

Blow dog-friendly bubbles and watch your pup chase and pop them. You can check out this recipe to make giant bubbles from dish soap, water, and corn syrup. Or, grab a bubble machine for endless fun.

5. Agility Adventure

Who needs a dog park when you can make your own at home using items you already have? It’s easy to set up an agility course and navigate your dog through the various obstacles.

Start with simple obstacles and gradually increase the difficulty as your dog becomes more confident and skilled. You can use simple items like small trash cans, broom handles, hula hoops, pillows, or wooden stakes.
