Throw your dog their favorite toy while standing at the top of the stairs and watch them have a blast running up and down to retrieve it! To complicate the game, hide in a nearby room or hallway after your throw and see if your dog can find you!

If you donโ€™t have stairs, simply playing hide-and-seek with your dog can be just as rewarding. Tell your dog to โ€œstayโ€ while you go hide somewhere in the house, and then release them from their stay to see if they can find you! Get the whole family involved as well!

Working your dogโ€™s brain is just as important as working their body. A plethora of puzzle toys exist to keep dogs thinking as well as rewarding them for their efforts. Use special treats to entice your dog and then watch them learn as they play!

Itโ€™s never a bad time to work on basic commands with your dog. While stuck inside, go over simple tricks such as โ€œsit,โ€ โ€œstay,โ€ โ€œdown,โ€ or โ€œspeak.โ€ This will help to refresh your dogโ€™s memory for more complicated commands later on while also strengthening your bond.

Dogs love to tugโ€” itโ€™s a healthy display of their natural prey drive. Plus, it strengthens their teeth and builds positive bonds to the person or dog that theyโ€™re playing with. Itโ€™s a great indoor game as well because it doesnโ€™t take up too much space!

A treat hunt is just like a treasure hunt for dogsโ€ฆ except all the treasure is food! Hide delicious treats all around your house and then see if your dog can track them down for a yummy surprise. The more your dog succeeds, the more theyโ€™ll want to keep looking!
