Start by hiding grain-free pet treats throughout the house in easy spots. Perhaps choose a place behind the couch leg or under the table. Then get your dog from another room and say, “Find it.” The first time your dog does this activity, you might point out a treat or two. But once your dog gets the hang of it, discover more difficult places to hide the dog treats. You may also do this activity when you leave the house and your dog has to sit at home alone.
