Hans is getting bigger and smarter and needs things to do.
I have begun playing a game with him where I close him up in the bathroom while I go hide his ball somewhere in the house, then I go release him and have him search.
No matter where I tried to hide it (in a box, in the shoe container we keep by the door, the pantry, a kitchen cabinet, behind the toilet, behind my son's backpack, in the recycling bin, etc) he always found it.
It was wonderful watching him work. I would tell him to search an area and he looked like the airport dog, LOL. Went about it with intensity, focus, and he was very serious and methodical.
I did this twice today, each time hiding the ball about 5 times, and tried to make it more difficult each time.
Each time, he napped very well after that.
My question is, when he uses his mind for a game, how long, time-wise, are the sessions supposed to be?
