Indoor Training Exercises?

It's starting to get too cold to go outside with Delilah.

I'm looking for ideas for indoor training exercises, games, tricks, etc.

Something fun to keep us occupied until next April!

Jump through hoop.
Weave through legs,
jump through arms.
Jump up on an object (couch, chair) jump off.
Hide and seek.
Fetch.

Sonic is busy growing his winter coat, but sooner or later, there will be too much mud or snow for agility in the yard, and I'll be getting on that list.

Have fun.

I love interactive toys, like puzzles or treat balls that make the dog work for the reward inside, I also like to do short training sessions through out the day...Right now I'm working on tricks with Buddha, he loves it, Ava isn't much into training she mostly likes to watch, but then every once in awhile she will participate!! I used to play a game with Jonah where I would hide his toy in a blanket then fold it up, when we first started that game it took him awhile to find the toy, but when he got really good at it I started using old plastic dog treat containers and then put a ball in upside down like the cup game, he loved that!!

I like to do nose games and hide and seek in the winter
For the nose work I use shoe boxes and smaller chewy.com boxes 3-5 boxes and pretend to hide a treat in each one only putting it in one of them then have them find it
They absolutely love this game
I'll also hide treats thru the house and ask to go find it my older dog Luna loved this game when she was alive my year old dog still needs practice lol
I also bought tiny orange cones and set them up in the kitchen to practice weaving

Aspen and I do TONS of tricks in the winter... I recently bought a bunch of FitPaws stuff and that's lots of fun to work with. I know @Shandula does nosework... I think @PoppyKenna does too.

Another reason to get into nosework lol.


Is there a book or list of tricks that anyone could recommend?
