In order to be able to keep your dog busy even when the weather does not allow for long walks, various games at home are just the right choice. Not only the body, but also the head is trained.
Search games are not only great outdoors to keep your four-legged friend busy - your dog will also be enthusiastically looking for the things you have hidden for him in the apartment.

Of course, the games work especially well with treats. Simply hide them at various points in the apartment and then send your four-legged friend to search. It is best to vary the level of difficulty: While some rewards are easy to find, place other treats in places that your dog can only find with a little more elaborate detection.

Clicker training is also one of the methods you can use to keep your dog occupied in the home at any time. All you need are treats and a so-called clicker. It is a small plastic utensil that is equipped with either a button or a piece of metal in the middle, which makes a click when pressed.
At the beginning of the training, your dog must first learn that this click sound means something positive. Press the clicker once and give your dog a treat immediately. Repeat this exercise several times. If your four-legged friend has learned to combine the sound with a reward, you can use the clicker training to keep him busy in a variety of ways. For example, retriever games, various tricks or obedience exercises can be implemented with clicker training.
