Chase the Disappearing Snowball

This one is straightforward. Just make a snowball and show your dog how you're able to throw it. Likely he will chase it and stick his nose into the opening where it lands. Unfortunately, the snowball will probably break apart on impact and he won't be ready to retrieve anything. At now, you create another snowball and continue the throw and fetch cycle everywhere again.

I have played his game with Titan. He had a robust prey drive and chasing the snowball was exciting for him, he would get his nose into every landing hole and check out to urge faster and faster, even trying to catch them before they land; together with his jaw snapping shut as he lunged in mid-air. Most of the time he would be too late and stuff his nose within the snow hole after the snowball which he couldn't find! He would sniff and sneeze to blow the snow off his nose after, and obtainable to roll in the hay everywhere again with snow -fluffed snout!

Have you done this together with your dog? How did it work out?

Chase the Sled with your dog

If you've got children that are twiddling with their sled or toboggan within the snow, it's such a lot of fun to possess the family dog chase them as they fly downhill! Just confirm rock bottom of Capitol Hill is safely enclosed for your children and your dog. whenever the sled goes down, so will the dog - great exercise for both children and dog.
We had an English cocker spaniel with I used to be younger who would chase us on our toboggan. It such a lot of fun!

Have a dog with a high prey-drive that likes to follow scent and track? This game is ideal and there are 2 ways to play.

You can just hide behind a snowy mound or bury yourself in some snow without the dog knowing. Then see if the dog picks up your scent and seeks you out. Or call your dog over to ascertain if she will determine by sound and scent where you're hiding.

You can also build a maze within the snow if you're creative and stand at the top of it, call your dog to ascertain if she will track her way through the maze to urge you. Does she pull it off first try? Or grind to a halt during a dead end?

These games are great for more athletic, high-energy dogs because they were the brain also as the body.
