Hide the Toy

"Take your dog's favorite toy/treat, and show it to her. Ask her to sit and wait, or have someone restrain her. Begin by hiding the toy where she can see it, and ask her to find it. Work on adding distance, gradually hiding the toy in spots out of her range of vision. This is a great game that teaches your dog to use her nose, as well as to wait" (Fogle, Jean M. "The Winter Games." Dog Fancy, Dec. 2003, 57).
