Have you ever taught your dog to track? It’s never too late to have a go. Lay a trail of a scent by dragging a treat across the ground and then show your dog the start point, encouraging them to follow the direction. Once they find the treat, reward them again by giving them extra treats for a well-done tracking job. Make it easy by starting with short distances in quiet, low-distraction areas with minimal competing scents.
The key with this game is to offer encouragement and always ensure your dog finishes on a positive note by finding their well-earned prize.
Adding enrichment games and activities to your senior dog’s life supports their cognition and motivation. It will help build and reaffirm your bond with your dog while supporting their health and happiness.
As your dog gets older, please take note of their physical and mental limitations, and be sure to adjust activities to ensure they are winning and not being challenged too much. Being supported to succeed will contribute to their confidence and enjoyment of any game or activity.
Choosing to incorporate ProDog Raw’s healthy dog treats into enrichment games means that you can provide dog-friendly rewards that are guaranteed to set tails wagging and give you peace of mind you’re nurturing your senior dog’s health by offering delicious and beneficial treats.
