This has lots of great ideas for beginners, however I was looking for something a little more advanced with some new ideas.

Mental stimulation is as important as physical activity to a dog's well-being. In BRAIN GAMES FOR DOGS, Arrowsmith reviews basic training skills (positive methods, ground rules, determining what motivates your dog), then explains how to incorporate mental challenges and learning into everyday activities. Icons for each game indicate whether it's interactive, solo or group; where it can be played; level of difficulty; and what props or toys are needed. Games from easy (Tunnel Dashing) to advanced (Skateboarding) are sorted into categories such as Verbal Games, Water Games, Games for Less-Active Dogs, and clearly illustrated with step-by-step photos. This compendium of fun games, tricks and activities to enjoy with your dog will provide a top-quality mental and physical workout.

I have three large dogs who already do most of the brain games. These were tricks that can be introduced to young dogs. I will pass it along to someone with a new puppy

This is an excellent book. Very descriptive, and endless hours of fun for you and your dog. My dog especially loved the 'find it' game and it has evolved into a full blown find it through the whole house. SHe loves it!

Love this book. It has reinforced the wonderful ways for one to communicate with their dog. It keeps her busy and she just loves to please. Still working on the biscuit on the nose.

This book is well illustrated with photos and info boxes (for what you need), and also has clear explanations of each of the games. My dog and I have fun with the ideas inside.

Instructions were in very small print and hard to read. Picked up some new tips.

The book arrived a little late but it looks like it will be a really good book, full of ideas to use with my dog. She is a mini Australian Shepherd and is very, very smart so the ideas in this book will really give her something different to think about and do.
