Giving Easter Eggs to your dog
If you're anything like me, you're probably on egg overload before, during, and after Easter! So what to do with all those hard boiled eggs? Well, did you know that dogs can enjoy them too? They are a great treat to give, and you don't even have to worry about how much. They're the perfect proportion for a snack!
Hard Boiled eggs are an amazingly easy and cheap treat to give your pup. Throw them in a pot of hot, boiling water and let them sit; it literally couldn’t be any easier. The best part is that they're safe to keep in the fridge for weeks after, as long as the shell hasn’t been cracked.
Eggs have many nutrients that dogs can benefit from, including vitamin A, B12, Iron, Selenium and Riboflavin. Eggs have been known for their long term benefits to your pup's coat of fur as well.
Try out our game!
The Egg Hunt Game
Take 2-3 hard boiled de-shelled eggs and hide them in your yard or home.
Release your dog and see how long it takes for them to sniff them out.
Start out simple if your dog hasn't done any sent work before.
Place many small pieces of egg in plain sight and then amp up the difficulty (bigger prizes in less visible locations) as they get better and better in scoping out the "finds".
