D'Elle Posted October 27, 2017 Report Share Posted October 27, 2017 Digger comes home today to total crate rest recovering from surgery. Anyone have suggestions for a good recovery diet, and things to teach a dog who has to stay in a crate? So far, I have this on my food list: bone broth, yogurt for pro-biotic effect, carrots for Vt. C, cooked chicken and rice, raw chicken, eggs. (not all at once) For two weeks he is not supposed to walk except to go outside (first few days not even that....I will need to carry him). So, I want to keep his mind occupied by teaching him some things. Suggestions for things I can teach him while he is on strict crate rest? So far I have: put chin in my hand, target with paw, cross paws, paw over nose, put nose into box or bag, head down on paws. (I cannot work with him handing me things or putting things into a box because he won't pick up something or take something from me unless it is food. don't know why, it's his quirk.) Games: maybe muffin tin with treats under tennis balls. Not sure what else. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
