What games have you been playing with the unpredictable weather?  One of our absolute favourite games to play indoors is Cardboard Chaos, this is a super confidence game and your dog can earn one of their meals.  A creative way to reuse your delivery boxes before you put them out for collection!  Randomly put all your boxes in a pile and scatter your dog’s food throughout, let your dog rummage around and find their dinner.  Your dog will love the challenge.

We had a great time playing cardboard chaos as one of the activities we played with our Naught but Nice Intensive group last week.  An amazing group of dog’s and owners who learned some super games and strategies to help bring out the ‘nice’ in their dogs.  It was lovely to see such dedicated owners helping their dogs.  Our weekly classes enjoyed fitness games, skills building for agility and working around distraction.  The week ended with our Leash Off Game On and Boundaries workshops, it was fantastic to see puppies, rescue and adult dogs wanting to learn more about recall and boundaries and how to transfer the games we play to real life results.  The week was full of light bulb moments and wins!

Post your wins in the comments below and let us know how your training is going!

We are here to help you achieve your goals from our workshops and classes to bespoke 121 training and if it is simply not possible to make to us in person, we can organize a Consult Call.  Stop thinking about your goals and take action!  The sooner you do the sooner you will start achieving results!  Putting a lesson into your diary is a great way to keep on track and have an accountability check in and to get some help progressing towards your goals!
