Free - Enrichment Activities

Did you know you can create enrichment activities for your dog for free by using items you have in your house. Below is a list of some of the items you can use:-

  • Toilet roll (cardboard tube)

  • Kitchen roll (cardboard tube)

  • Egg carton

  • Any cardboard box

  • Muffin tray

  • Towel

Most days Bonzo will get some of his daily food allowance (generally around breakfast time) in some form of enrichment or interactive activity. Toilet rolls and cardboard boxes are used most days. I fold over the end of toilet roll, pop some food in and then fold over the other end, it looks a bit like an old fashioned humbug. Here are a few pictures:-

With the egg carton and muffin tray you can put food in the holes and put something over the holes. You can use toilet rolls, balls, small cardboard boxes and anything else you can think of.

With the towel I would use an older one as you may end up with holes depending on your dog. I'm lucky with Bonzo he hasn't put any holes in towels when doing that activity. Lay the towel out flat, place food/treats on towel and then roll it up and give it to your dog.

Let me know how you get on.
