Canine Assistants Tip of The Month
Slight of hand
Dogs love to play games such as Guess Which Hand Holds the Treat. Start by holding a treat so that your dog can see it. With your hands behind your back, place the treat in one hand, then hold out your two lightly closed fists for your dog to sniff. If he sniffs the wrong one, open that hand, say uh oh and let him try again. When he sniffs the correct hand, open it and let your dog eat the treat. Its a simple game but one your dog is sure to enjoy and interaction between you two is critical to creating and maintaining a strong bond.
