Most dog owners would readily agree that it s important to keep pets physically fit and well-exercised for them to enjoy a good quality of life. But how many also think about what s going on inside their dogs heads? Bored dogs are notoriously prone to behavioral problems, such as exercise, barking, destructiveness and separation anxiety. As this fascinating book reveals, dogs also need mental stimulation to exercise their brains, boost their self confidence and strengthen the bond that they enjoy with their human families. Brain Games For Dogs is brilliantly conceived compendium of fun games, tricks and activities that you can enjoy with your dog that will help to stretch and challenge it mentally and allow it to enjoy a top quality workout for the mind. Illustrated throughout with newly commissioned colour studio photography Brain Games For Dogs emphasizes the pleasure of working together with a dog to tackle new challenges and of using the power to play to stimulate and unlock your dog s full mental potential.
