Most dogs enjoy playing 'Find It!' puppy games but your Cocker Spaniel puppy will especially love this game as he's a natural hunter and retriever!
And as well as being great fun, it's a good way of using up your dog's energy - both physically and mentally.
As he gets better at finding the treat make it a little more difficult for him; don't let your puppy see where you hide the treat.
You can later progress to hiding treats in another room; behind a door; just underneath furniture; but don't make it too difficult for him.
Don't worry if he doesn't find them quickly; the idea is to stimulate your puppy's mind and get him to work off any excess energy.
Teaching your Cocker Spaniel to play Find It games will keep him occupied for ages - well at least until you've enjoyed a quiet cuppa on your own!
Puppy playtime is a real fun time for your Cocker Spaniel puppy - they love to run, romp and roll around!
Puppy play is not only about having fun - it's also about keeping your puppy stimulated, both physically and mentally, and that's got to be good for your puppy!
