Dog friendly game: Catch
Looking for a game to play with your buddy in your free time? sploot has your back!
Playing “Catch” is a great way to exercise your dog and strengthen your bond with him at the same time. Many dogs are not good at catching things. So, start with their small and favourite toys only.
Teaching your dog how to complete the catching process will help to make the game of catch more fun for both of you.
Here’s how you can play:
1. Have your dog sit in a stay position (or enlist help if your dog keeps peeking)
2. Show them a treat or their favourite toy. Throw at them politely.
3. Let them catch it! Start with a smaller distance and increase slowly.
4. Continue to Practice: Hold short training sessions throughout the day in various indoor and outdoor locations. End training session on a positive note (with a success). Be patient and consistent.
Playing with your dog really helps with the mental aspect of boredom and stimulates their brain. Interactive games like throwing a ball and having them catch help to build their focus and discipline them.
Being able to go out with your dog, whether it’s a simple walk or playing catch at a nearby park, will help you grow closer with them. It’s one of the many benefits of having a playtime with your pup. Getting to spend quality time with your beloved pooch can help strengthen the love and friendship you share with them.
Have fun playing, and tell us if you enjoyed it!
