Dog Talk Treasure Hunt


Is your dog bored with unending monsoon weather? When it’s too rainy to go out and play, an indoor treasure hunt is the answer.

Treasure hunts are simple: hide the toy in the house and get your pet to find it for you. Learning treasure hunting involves teaching the fetch, drop and search as well as learning toy names. Tomorrow's Dog Talk published in the Malaysian national daily The Star explains how to go about setting up this game.

Reminder: The Star will only publish one Katz Tales and one Dog Talk a month from now on. Dog Talk is out tomorrow on 17th January, Katz Tales will be out 31st January.

Adopt me! Yuni pictured on the right here is not a good guard dog because she’s very friendly. But she’s a very loving companion and likes kids. Yuni has been vaccinated, dewormed and spayed. Her daily expenses are covered by the Furry Friends Farm’s LACES project (Love and Care for Every Stray) but she now needs a forever home. If you want to adopt her please email sabrinayeap AT gmail.com or sms to 016-6319018.


If you're in Malaysia, send in a snap of your cat or dog with a caption and win a gift basket from Heartguard (dogs) or Friskies (cats). Send entry to:

Do we write a whole bunch of bow-lingual rhyming riddles for our furkiddos to solve, too? ;o)

Ah yes, all those rainy day games -
1. Hide and Seek
2. Treasure Hunt
3. Guess which fist is the treat in?
4. Ribbon under the door.
5. Open the Pringle can so you can get at the treat/toy inside.
6. Undo the knots in the towel.

The list goes on!
