Part of the pleasure of owning a dog is the mutual fun that results from the playing of games. However these games also have a role in the development and well-being of our four-legged friends, not least of which is building up our dogs' self confidence and boosting our relationships. With very little financial outlay and no previous experience any dog owner whether the dog be a puppy or an older animal can invent games using household objects. The purpose of this book is to help you discover and employ games and activities on an everyday basis that both you and your dog will enjoy and that will contribute towards his fitness and training. Amongst many other ideas, you will: marvel at the super-abilities of your dog's sense of smell; make his daily walks an exciting adventure; and find enough inspiration in your living room to exercise his basic play instincts.
