Lesson 2 of 7
In Progress


Easter bags

Fifi loves to rip paper to discover treats inside. If your dog isn’t confident about ripping, you’ll need to help them out by opening the parcel for them once they’ve located it. 

Club Dogwood members received some bags to get them started in this month’s pack, but you can also find them on eBay. Envelopes (new or used) also work perfectly.

Easter eggs 

  • The chocolate variety
  • The dog-friendly kind of course! Don’t worry if you can’t find them, they’re not essential. 
  • The homemade variety
  • Make up a batch of your dog’s favourite homemade treats and roll them into an egg shape with your hands before freezing/baking

Easter egg shells

  • Plastic eggs designed for children are not suitable for dogs who are likely to try to pick them up as they may swallow or crack them, presenting a choking or injury hazard. Paper mache eggs are a safer alternative for many dogs.

Egg-shaped feeders 

  • You know what looks a lot like an Easter Egg? A KONG! Same shape! Any stuffable container can be used instead. Opt for a container with a larger opening than a KONG if your dog gets frustrated by them. Works well for the Single Egg Hunt.
  • JW Ho-lee Egg Roller – I love this as it’s nice and stuffable!
  • Clam feeders – ok, these aren’t exactly egg-shaped, but they’re close enough.

Real eggs

  • Go whole and raw if your dog is confident crushing them, if not, be on hand to step in to crack once your dog locates them. An easier option is boiled eggs – whole or cut into smaller pieces. Choose eggs from organic, free-range healthy chickens.


  • Hide a favourite toy.

Easter baskets or cardboard boxes.

Easter-themed treats – but any will do!


Paper bags – new or used envelopes work just as well!

Eggs – chocolate or the real deal

Snuffle material. I’ve used straw but scrunched up paper is fine!

Papier-mâché eggs

Extra filling for snuffle baskets/boxes – I used polystyrene eggs but avoid these if your dog is likely to eat non-edibles.

Alternatives to eggs – any stuffables you already own

Ta-dahhhhh! Easter Baskets…
