song.sparrow Posted January 22, 2021 Report Share Posted January 22, 2021 Hi everyone! Our puppy, Monte, is 6 months old now. He is our third BC and he is the smartest, and most challenging, yet! He has developed into a routine where he often naps in the afternoons, but in the mornings he is awake and wants attention while we need to work. As is typical, if we don't keep him busy, he finds his own trouble. We often tug and throw toys for him, and take brief breaks for either a quick training session or a quick play session in the yard, but sometimes we need him to occupy himself. Some strategies we have used: * Feed him his breakfast in a Kong, to slow him down eating and keep him busy for a little while * Tuck kibble into a snuffle ball. This works especially well if I'm in a Zoom meeting, because the snuffle ball is silent. * Other treat-dispensing balls/toys and puzzle toys, although if you have a favorite type I'd love to hear about it! Any other suggestions? Thank you! Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
