ACTIVE GAMES

ADVICE 326
Many canine clubs program competitions of these games and both, you and your dog, can enjoy participating on them.
THE HIDE AND SEEK GAME
ADVICE 327
Playing hide and seek stimulates the mental ability and the dog's sense of smell. You can also teach your dog to look for other hidden objects such as keys, a purse or a shoe, but only when you order so.

ADVICE 329

ADVICE 330
The dog's health requires a lot of exercises and getting it used to run with you can be fun and physically stimulating for both of you.
FOLLOWING THE TRACE
ADVICE 331
Many dogs enjoy the mental concentration that following a trace demands. You can leave a lead for the dog, walking on the grass and then leaving a prize for the dog at the end of it.
HOW TO USE Dog TOYS
Once you finished playing with the dog, state very clearly that the toys must be stored, preferably in their own box or bag.
ADVICE 332
The dog will learn soon that the toys are yours and that you only let the dog to play with them under your own conditions. This makes them more desirable, so you can use them as powerful rewards during and after the training.
They are also useful for the dog to play with them when it is left alone at home.
REWARDED Dog GAMES
ADVICE 333
Games can be as profitable for you as for your dog. If you can, play with your dog after every training session.
ADVICE 334
Avoid doing it before the training or if the dog is tired.
You can also incorporate the games to the training, reinforcing the orders "come", "sit" and "drop" and using the game as a prize.
ADVICE 335
If all of the members of the family and the friends participate in the games, the dog will receive prizes from different people and will learn to quietly enjoy the company of other people.
