MUFFIN TIN GAME
Games are great ways to keep your puppy from getting bored and into trouble. Looking for a new game to play with your pup? Here’s one that is mentally stimulating and fun for them!
Get a 12-muffin tin and place one tennis ball in each muffin spot. Randomly hide a small chewy treat under several of the tennis balls. Ask your puppy to “WAIT” as you set the muffin tin on the ground. After a few seconds, say, “RELEASE” or “OK” and let your puppy find the treats.
It is fun to watch them try to figure out how to get the treats from under the tennis balls. Refrain from helping them out and let them take their time as that is part of the game! Repeat the fun once all the treats have been found and devoured. Enjoy!
