10 Fun Brain Games for Dogs

 Dogs are so smart, and they love to play. If you’re looking for ways to keep your dog entertained, these fun brain games are sure to entertain both you and your pet. Some of them might even be helpful in training!

10 Fun Brain Games for Dogs

1) Kongs

Kongs are a great way to keep your dog busy and entertained, while also helping with their dental health. Kongs are made of rubber and can be stuffed with treats or peanut butter. They're also available in different sizes, so you can get the right size for your dog based on size (or if you don't want to fill them up).
Kongs are great because they offer interactive playtime that's both fun and beneficial! You'll see how much more interested they become when they have something in their mouth—and if there aren't any treats inside? You may find yourself having some fun too! If there is food inside though, let’s make sure we get rid of it before we start playing around with our pets!

2) Nosework

Nosework is a great activity to engage your dog's brain and body. It also has the added benefit of making them feel like they're getting somewhere with you, which can be motivating for them as well. If nosework seems like something your pup would enjoy, look into local classes or find a partner who's willing to teach you how to do it!
Nosework is typically done by humans—the trainer helps guide their dog around objects placed in their path (such as toys) until they reach the end goal of sniffing out treats hidden there. You'll need some sort of treat on hand so that when the dog finds what he wants, he knows it's time for more fun!

3) Food puzzles

If you're looking for a way to keep your dog busy and engaged, food puzzles are an excellent option. They can also be used as training tools, especially when combined with other activities like playing fetch or tug-of-war. Food puzzles are great for boredom and obesity management because they require your dog to do something active while eating (elevating the value of food).
Food puzzles come in many shapes and sizes—from simple cones shaped like pieces of fruit or vegetables to more complicated items that require more skill on behalf of both you and your pet. Many dogs enjoy these types of games, but some find them overwhelming; if this sounds like yours then consider making one yourself!

4) Roll on a mat

This is one of the easiest and most fun brain games for dogs. It doesn't matter if your dog likes to roll over on his back or lies down, he'll enjoy this game as long as you provide him with treats and toys that he can catch in his mouth when he rolls.

5) Snuffle mats

Snuffle mats are a great way to keep your dog busy while you're working. They're made of a soft material that they can dig their nose into, making it easy for them to find treats or toys hidden under the mat. These mats also help your pet's mental health by reducing boredom, which can lead to destructive behaviors like chewing on furniture or other household items.

6) Hide and seek

Hide and seek is a fun game for dogs. Dogs love the challenge of finding something hidden, and this can be played with a variety of toys, treats, or food. It's also a great way to bond with your dog!

7) Back to school

Teaching your dog to sit, stay, and come is the first step to getting them ready for school. Start with a treat or toy—anything that will keep their attention for a little while so you can reward them with something tasty if they're doing it correctly.
After you've taught your pup how to sit on command (and give him some practice), try teaching him to stay when asked. This is best done using verbal praise: "Good boy!" Then cue whatever behavior you want him to repeat—like coming back from inside after being let out by another person or dog (or crossing the street) without pulling at all! Once he's learned one command, move on to another one like "sit" or "stand." It might take some time before he masters these new commands, but don't worry! As long as he keeps practicing at home and paying attention during walks outside too often rather than running off into traffic every chance he gets then soon enough all those bad habits will disappear completely...

8) Scent work, hiding treats in boxes or around the house and letting your dog sniff them out.

In this game, you hide a treat somewhere in your home. Your dog has to find it by searching through every room while you give him commands to do so (for example: “Find!”). You can make it more challenging by hiding them in different rooms of your house or outdoors (like on top of a tree). You could also hide some treats inside of an empty box and leave that for days until your pup gets used to finding new boxes—it's up to you! If that sounds like too much pressure for one day, try just hiding a few treats outside instead; after all, what better way to get them into shape than by giving them something fun?

9) Find it! Hiding food or toys around the house, then sending your dog to go find them.

  • Hide treats around the house.
  • Hide toys around the house.
  • Hide treats in boxes (your dog will have to get through a box before they can get to the treat).
  • Hide treats in places your dog can't reach (like the inside of drawers or cabinets).
  • Hide treats in places that are easy for your dog to find (like on top of bookshelves).

10) Hide it! Give your dog treats, then make them follow commands before they can eat them.

Hide it! is a fun and engaging game for your dog. To play, you'll need:
  • Treats (like bacon bits or peanut butter)
  • Commands to follow (like fetch)
Before you start, hide the treats in different places around the house or yard. Then give your dog a command to find each one and when they do, reward them with a treat when they're done following the command. If your dog can't find all of them before time runs out or if they don't understand what you're asking them to do in order to get those treats, just extend their search area until they manage it again—this gives them more practice at finding hidden items!


Your dog will love you for these brain games, and you’ll both have fun at the same time.
Dogs are smart—and so are their owners! That's why we created Brain Games for Dogs that make it easy for your dog to be a little smarter than they already are. We know how much fun it is when we play together, so we created this game specifically with the goal of improving both our relationship and overall health by playing together. If you're looking for ways to strengthen your bond with your best friend, this is one way in which an improvement can be made: by making sure that he knows his place in life as an owner/leader rather than just another pet on the couch (or floor).
So, what are you waiting for? Go get your dog some fun brain games!
