Our newest game - created by my four year old daughter is the doggie easter egg hunt.
She put liver bits into the small easter eggs and hid them while I was in the shower one morning. I came out to find the dogs excitedly sniffering every corner of the living room.
Petey picked up first, find the egg, bring it to the Gremlin to open and give him the treat. Crunch the egg once and you get scolded, crunch it twice and go into another room for a time out.
We expanded it to the backyard and the dogs have a blast and it keeps both dogs and the Gremlin busy for awhile.
NILIF rules apply. The dog must sit, wait while you open the egg, offer a trick or perform a trick, then take the treat gently.
Oh yeah - we keep a squirt bottle with plain water in it for the NO ROUGHING call in case it is needed.
