Here’s how to play:
1. Attention please! Show your dog the treat and he’ll know something exciting is in store.
2. Kneel and conceal. Facing your dog at his level, tuck the treat in one of your palms and place both hand side by side in front of him. Ask, “Which hand?” Put your hands behind your back and trade the treat between hands.
3. Show and reward. Bringing your palms back in front of you, side by side, ask the question again: “Which hand?” He may lick one or both hands. When he is correct, reward him with the treat. Repeat this game and he will catch on to the fact that only one hand contains a treat and he must guess before he gets a snack.
