- The trick to get it started is to start easy in the house. Go ahead and hide until they find you, then reward them with a small and healthy treat. Gradually start doing longer distances until they get the idea.
- Whistle or call for them to keep them interested in the game and to avoid distractions.
- Once comfortable in a house or yard setting, try playing in the park or outdoors, just make sure they don’t wander too far away!
Not only is this a fun pastime to do with your dog, but it teaches them obedience and the importance of finding you. For example, if you’re out on a hike together and you happen to lose each other their instinct will automatically tell them to go and find you. Good dog!
