You will need:

1 x muffin tray

Beginner Level

  • 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.


Intermediate Level

Advanced Level

(requires ‘fetch’ and ‘drop’ type commands)

  • Place the empty muffin tray on the floor near to you.
