Okay, so did I sound desperate enough?
Stark is on crate rest - leashed walks to potty and back into the x-pen - for another 4 days. We were told 2 weeks crate/x-pen and then restricted activity for another 2 weeks after that.
He is going bonkers... poor guy. My dogs get about 2 hours of off-lead time per day, plus walks so being in this x-pen for almost 2 weeks straight is making him crazy.
He is not a food or toy dog AT ALL so he is ignoring his bones, antlers, kongs, and other interactive toys. I have put the cats in there with him to keep him company, sat on his bed with him, brushed him, groomed him, played the touch game, nose work, and anything else I can think of to keep him entertained.. I let him sit out on the balcony and watch the world go by, etc.. but need some more ideas.
Please.. for both our sanity.. give me some more ideas I can do to help keep Stark from going bonkers!
