14 Dogs Who Fell for the Cat Trap

Are you familiar with the cat trap? Put out a box, and pretty soon a cat will be in it. Did you know that it works for dogs as well? Long before I started doing noseworks with my dogs, they each were more than happy to check out boxes. Noseworks uses boxes for training dogs to find hidden scent, so now a box is completely assured to attract their attention!

Apparently my dogs are not alone in their interest in boxes, as I came across a number of fun photos of dogs who inserted themselves in boxes,even when the box was far too small.

Below are photos of 14 dogs who fell for the cat trap. Enjoy!

    This dog is quite determined to make this box stretch to his size!   I don't think it is going to happen though.

  • Helping with the Unpacking 3 of 15

    Some dogs can't resist helping when there is a box to be unpacked.  This canine seems to have gotten caught up in the packaging, but I'm sure he provided plenty of useful assistance .

  • Is Two a Crowd? 4 of 15

    This box caught not one, but two puppies!  Good thing one of them is small.

  • Dog Makes a Bed of a Box 5 of 15

    This box would make a great bed if only it were just a bit larger.  I'm not sure this dog will be getting any shut eye!

    This photo is just plain adorable.  A little yellow lab or golden, I'm not sure which, peeks out from a box.

    My Corgi Ty hangs out in a box after searching it for treats. He didn't find any, but he was happy to stay in the box!

    This dog looks rather uncomfortable, but he also doesn't appear to be trying to go anywhere either.

  • Pug in a Box 10 of 15

    A bug takes up a good vantage point in a box. Why sit on the floor when you can be in a box?

  • Hello There! 11 of 15

    This dog wisely chose the larger box.  Might as well go for the most space when falling for the cat trap.

  • Helping with the Repairs 12 of 15

    A dog helps with the tool storage and repairs by checking out the tool chest box.  I'm sure that was very helpful of him.

  • Can the Dog Get Out? 13 of 15

    This little guy got in the box, but will he be able to jump back out again?  The box is certainly taller than he is!

    Sometimes a box is the best vantage point for keeping a close watch on the area. This dog is doing some keen surveillance.
