brain games can be a great way to teach your dog some problem-solving skills and in today’s video I’m gonna show you how to take the simple plastic container and turn it into a really fun game for a dog of any breed of any size of any age in any physical ability I’m Ken steep this is Grand Slam welcome back from the can dogs if this is your first time on the channel and you consider your dog a member of the family then you’re gonna want to hit that subscribe button we’ve published new videos every single week to help you spend some quality time with your four-legged family member now the brain game toy that we’re gonna make this week is a really simple one to make and if you saw the brain game video we posted recently you’re probably gonna have a few of these lying around the brain game food puzzle that we posted last week or something included a bunch of tennis balls so if you have put that together then you’re gonna have these and if you haven’t seen that video yet then I’ll post a link above me you can you can check that one out but what you’re gonna need for this DIY toy build is an empty tennis ball container a pair of scissors a sharp knife and now I’m using a utility knife but if you have a really sharp kitchen knife that’s probably gonna work just as well and a few pieces of your dog’s kibble and these are just gonna be for size reference now the thing about this DIY brain game isn’t so much how you make it it’s more how you introduce it to your dog and I’ll show you in a minute just what I mean but let’s get started first we’re gonna cut a few little holes into this tennis ball container so that the kibble can fall out first things first I’m going to make a couple of cuts into this tennis ball container trying to keep in mind how big that kibbles going to be so that they don’t make a huge mess when we do give it to one of the dogs exercise caution when you’re using these sharp knives does this contain there’s a little bit flimsy and the last thing you’d want to do is any kind of injury while you’re trying to make one of these brain games now while you’re doing this try to keep the majority of your holes that we’re putting in this tennis ball container near the middle the likelihood is that your dog when your dog flicks it that this is gonna spin and we’re really not looking for an easy payout if the container spins is going to eject all of the treats out everywhere and your dogs couldn’t be running around like a maniac what we want them to do is have to walk a little bit and figure that rolling this container is really what gets them that that great tree payout so keep most of your holes and I hope you guys can see this okay keep most of your holes towards the middle you know two-thirds of this tennis ball container so there we go I’ve got four holes in the center of the container I’m not sure oh well you guys can see that hopefully you can you can kind of see it maybe I’ll put it to show the overhead camera but I think that there’s enough holes in here that the treats aren’t going to just go flying out what’s you know I’m gonna make me play this with Grand Slam whoo you guys may rack our laughs brain game video but the treats are good just just gonna go flying out but they’ll fall out if he figures out the right way to make the toy work pretty good I’m pretty confident of that okay now the important part let’s show Grand Slam how to play this game I played a little bit of a space in the living room so that plan can play with this brain game toy and I have brought up the head held camera so that it can get you guys in in right on top of the action there are two little hacks that I can mention with this so in my short the short amount of time that I played tennis the more expensive tennis balls come with a much nicer container a little bit thicker it’s just a nicer container in general so if you have a dog who will be crunching this or you find that the first one you made it didn’t last very long then you can buy a little bit more expensive tennis balls and you probably get a nicer container the other thing is if you have a dog who’s crunching really working hard to get the food out of this and it’s actually taking them a lot longer and they’re damaging the toy put more treats in it the more the toy pays out the less likely they are to crunch it and really knock it around like crazy so the less interaction they have to do the smaller the rolls the more treats come out so keep that in mind more food equals less you know destructive behavior with a brain game like this okay so I’ve plopped a couple of slams kibble treats in there some of his dinner we’ve portioned out and we are going to put the lid on and that will let slam see if you can figure out how to get these treats out of this this brain game clock [Music] actually over the course of filming this video for you guys I actually hate his entire dinner out of this brand game and he was able to have some fun while doing it so uh I hope you guys enjoy it and let us know in the comments below if you have any other ideas for really great big brain games that you do with your dog now this is your first time on the
