Enrichment is so important for your pet. Here is a simple Find It scent enrichment game you can play with your dog or puppy. Remember to do this at your pet’s pace. If your dog is new to this, you may want to make finding the treats a lot easier by putting them within view or pointing them out to your dog or puppy. For a dog with fear or other confidence issues, you may want to also play this without asking for the added self control behaviors like sit and stay.
