This article will look at how you can enrich the relationship between you and your dog by treasure hunting together. It is a fun activity and will help you to spend some leisure time with your pup.
Here is a guide to train your pup about treasure hunting like a pro.
Training dogs to treasure hunt is not about teaching them new tricks or tips. It is about the reactivation of their natural behavior patterns. Such activities can be fun for you as well as for your dog. Treasure hunting acts as a stimulus for aging pets to use their senses accordingly. Also, it will keep your pup canine sharp.
Dubai pet food has a wide range of dog food to keep your dogs healthy and nourished. The dry food will make them feel energized all day long and, this will help them keep motivated for fun activities like a treasure hunt.
There are Five Basic tips to guide treasure hunting with your dog.
Start with the Basic
Firstly, start with the basics, ensure that your dog reacts to the basic instruction or command. Before asking your dog to learn to locate things, it is a good idea that you have taught them the basics such as sitting, standing, running.
Reward your pup after every successful step in training. It will help boost your puppy’s confidence and maintenance of discipline and understanding in your dog.
Maintenance of Discipline
After going through the basics, be sure that your pup is healthy discipline, like grab a favorite treat and place it in her line of sight or maybe in front of her. Instruct or command them to stand, ensuring that they don’t rush towards the treat immediately and wait for your next instruction patiently.
When you think that now is the time to reward your dog with a treat, clearly state a command of your choice to get the snack. You can say “hunt.”
Begin with Small
Start with smaller like hide the treat within the room, then go bigger and hide throughout the living room. Let your dog sit in the place and sniff the treat. Hiding the delight within the space will alert their senses.
Give the command to your dog, let your dog go after it. If the dog gets confused or distract, repeat the given order. When first starting with a treasure hunt, it is okay to help your dog by gesturing or pointing out where the treat is.
However, ensure that you understand the command you are using, such as searching for the hidden treat.
Now, when you and your dog have mastered finding treats or something hidden inside the room, you can progress to hiding them throughout your living room. When your dog struggles to find joy, keep encouraging them, pointing out a sense of urgency in your voice to keep your pup motivated.
After your pup finds each hidden treat, be sure to reward them or pet them expressing how proud you are.
Be Creative with it
After your dog gets master in finding stuff in the house, you can start thinking about getting creative with it outside the home. Organize a treasure hunt outside the house because the inside and outside the house differ to help your dog alert sensory senses.
Be sure not to give in quickly. Persistence and patient are the names of the game and secrets of success in the game.
Be patient with your dog in this learning process. Keep encouraging your pup because your praises will keep them motivated. Let them find in their own pace and get successful.
