On this page I will give you the How To instructions for a powerful pattern exercise called the 2 Bowl Game.

In this game your dog will learn how to move independently from bowl to bowl. After mastering the foundations, you can start adding different exercises and “obstacles” between the bowls. And maybe even build your first Movement Puzzles 😉

Patterns are AMAZING! When your dog’s brain recognizes a pattern, it releases dopamine – one of the “feel good” hormones. Patterns also speed up learning, they improve memory. Teaching new things with a familiar pattern also gives your dog the feeling of “I know this game! Yay! I can do this!”.

Which is why patterns are my go-to solution for confidence boosting exercises!
