Easy fun game

We have played this game repeatedly in the last few weeks since we bought it- took it on holiday and played it with kids and dog which was heaps of fun, but we also play a quieter solo game at home in the evenings.

It is a fun way to entertain the dog, and sneak in some sound training at the same time. Activities can easily be adapted to the capabilities of the dogs and human players. Main rule is have fun!

Lucy the dog pricks up her ears when the box comes out, so that's got to be a good sign!

This makes me very happy to see, thanks so much for sharing!! So glad everyone enjoys it and it works so well for everyone!! <3
