Our dogs are olfactory creatures, and it is important to engage their sense of smell frequently. When you’re at home with your dog, giving them nose work and interactive toys can help with mental stimulation, providing physical activity and keeping them calm and confident.
Different nose work and interactive toys give your dog a variety of challenges. It could be a plush toy with hidden pockets for treats, or a strategy game with sequential steps to complete, or a treat dispenser that isn’t as generous as you!
Regardless of which toy you choose, let your dog have fun and decide where to sniff or search, or how to solve the problem in return for the hidden treats.
