I found this fun idea to hide dog treats in your backyard and create a “scavenger hunt” for your dog! So, Cooper and I put on our “poo boots”* and headed out to hide said dog treats. Cooper was very specific about where he put the treats, adorable!
*Poo boots: Boots that are reserved for tromping around in our backyard in case we should run into Pele’s yard bombs. =)
He eventually found 3 by himself!
Things to know if you’re considering doing this yourself:
A: We sat down to make a map of where we were going to hide them, it helped get us started, but Cooper’s not quite old enough yet.
B: Be sure you choose treats that are okay for your dog to have many of. So far so good, but as we got going, I grabbed the package and read, “6 in one day”. Oops, we went about 4 over! Fingers crossed it’ll be okay. =)
Definitely a fun activity that will be repeated! June 11, 2010
Oh yes, and our follow up trip to the train from yesterday ended up being a fun treat! Man am I thankful for the conductor who kept my wallet I had left behind! He even took a fun picture of us riding the train…AND we saw peacocks up close and personal, courtesy of the Folsom Zoo.
