Book Description

30 Jun 2010
Most dog owners would readily agree that it s important to keep pets physically fit and well-exercised for them to enjoy a good quality of life. But how many also think about what s going on inside their dogs heads? Bored dogs are notoriously prone to behavioral problems, such as exercise, barking, destructiveness and separation anxiety. As this fascinating book reveals, dogs also need mental stimulation to exercise their brains, boost their self confidence and strengthen the bond that they enjoy with their human families. Brain Games For Dogs is brilliantly conceived compendium of fun games, tricks and activities that you can enjoy with your dog that will help to stretch and challenge it mentally and allow it to enjoy a top quality workout for the mind. Illustrated throughout with newly commissioned colour studio photography Brain Games For Dogs emphasizes the pleasure of working together with a dog to tackle new challenges and of using the power to play to stimulate and unlock your dog s full mental potential.

5.0 out of 5 stars Loads of ideas for my dogs and I to play with 26 Dec 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I absolutely love 'brain games' for pets. As the weather is not to our favor most of the year, being indoors is not normal for any dog. So when I expect a spell of wet weather, they either have a choice of parking off looking miserable at the droplets running down the window or we play! And low and behold, when they hear the sound of the toy box, they always choose the latter.

I really appreciate this book because it covers a wide range of games, some new to me, thanks.

And as for needed materials... In general, you will find it around the house and purchasing it is minimal.

Once play time is finished, they each go to their cages to sleep off like babies... and I feel good for the day too.
