Muffin Tray Game
You will need:
1 x muffin tray
Multiple tennis balls
Place treats into random cups of the muffin tray.
Cover the treats with as many tennis balls as you like.
Allow your dog to hunt out the treats.
Place more tennis balls than treats into the tray to encourage dogs to sniff out exactly where the treats are.
(requires ‘fetch’ and ‘drop’ type commands)
Place the empty muffin tray on the floor near to you.
Scatter tennis balls around the floor and ask the dog to fetch a ball. If they need encouragement to fetch, throw one ball at a time.
When the dog brings the ball back and their mouth is over the tray, ask them to drop.
When the ball hits the tray or falls into the cup, treat your dog.
See how many balls they can return to the tray.
