Are you tired of your mischievous pup getting into everything and causing chaos?
Well, the good news is that this misbehavior could actually be a sign of your pup's intelligence.
That's right, your furry friend is not just being naughty, they're actually trying to engage and challenge their mind.
By providing your pup with interactive games that build their problem-solving skills, you'll not only be keeping them entertained but also fostering their loyalty.
Here are a few examples of games that you can play with your pup to increase their intelligence and build their loyalty:
Hide and Seek: This classic game is a great way to engage your puppy's natural instincts to hunt and find you. Hide treats or toys around the house and call your puppy to find them.
Follow the Leader: Lead your puppy around the house or yard, encouraging them to follow you. This game can help build trust and obedience as well as improve their socialization skills.
Tug-of-War: This interactive game can help build physical and mental stimulation while also strengthening the bond between you and your puppy. Make sure to always play in a controlled environment and never let your puppy win.
Fetch: A simple game of fetch can help build trust and strengthen the bond between you and your puppy. You can also play with toys that encourage your puppy to interact with you, such as ball launchers or interactive toys.
Obedience Training: Consistent obedience training can help build a strong foundation for good behavior and positive relationships. Encouraging your puppy to follow commands like "come," "stay," and "heel" can help establish a trustful and loyal bond between you and your puppy.
Treasure Hunt: This game is similar to hide and seek, but instead of hiding treats, hide a special toy. Your pup will have to use their problem-solving skills to find the toy and will associate the reward with your interaction and time spent together. Need more than just a few games?

Maybe what you need, more than anything is a proven framework that will enable you and your dog to connect on levels you've never known before. Or maybe you just need them to stop misbehaving.
