Ready to Play, Mom?
Food Makes Toys Fun!
- Place a small treat in the bottom of each spot in a muffin tin.
- On top of each treat place a small toy that is easy to pick up.
- You now have a smorgasbord of toys with hidden treats, the perfect way to encourage toy play. Offer verbal praise when Fido starts to explore, and cheer him on as he removes each and discovers the treats hidden underneath.
- For dogs who are extremely resistant to the idea, simply rub a bit of peanut butter or cheese on the bottom of the muffin tin compartments. This usually does the trick, getting them past any caution that stops them from exploring.
