Other complementary activities can be purchased separately.

Good to know

• Dogs are different. Some dogs choose to use their paws a lot, others use their snout. Accept the way your dog chooses to solve the tasks

• It is important that the dog is experiencing success when working with the ActivityMat. Give the dog the help it needs, without taking the initiative from it

• If the dog does not know what to do, it is a good idea to give it a treat just for touching the ActivityMat or the task

• If the dog is too eager, it might be a good idea to let it eat first. However, if it is less interested, it might be an advantage that it is hungry when it is presented to the ActivityMat – choose what feels right for your dog

• Remember that the process is most important and not how fast the dogs solves the tasks

• The dog must not be left unattended with the ActivityMat

Useful tips

• Use a start command when the dog is about to work with the ActivityMat

• Let, at first, the dog see that you put treats in the activities

• Avoid over-stimulation, work max. 15 minutes at a time, but preferably several times a day

• Always finish the work with thte activity mat while the dos is successful.
