The ‘Washing Line’ Game

During this time where many people are at home, you might find yourself looking for something new to try with your dog – inside your home or outside in a garden. There are lots of fun games you and your dog can do together to keep you both happy and healthy. Take a look at some suggestions here from Adem Fehmi at Dog-ease Training and Behaviour.

Here is another easy game for you to prepare and play with your dog. All you will need are some small to medium-sized boxes, a lead, some treats or your dog’s food, and a secure object to secure your ‘washing line’ game to. For smaller breeds, adjust the size of the cardboard boxes or use items such as toilet roll innards. You may also want to swap your lead for a piece of twine or string.

As always, be creative but sensible in your choice of ‘containers’, and always make sure you supervise the game and hold the end of the ‘washing line’ that isn’t attached to your chosen secure object.

This is also another great game to prepare with the kids as you can decorate the boxes if you wish - hopefully a lot better than me! 

As always, let us know if you try this game out and tag @thekennelclubuk or @dogtoradem in your videos. We would love to see your dogs having fun and also what objects you come up with!
