Default Play time!

Hello all,
I just wanted to get some different peoples plans on exercise and playing I'd love to hear everyone's different approaches so if you have something that you like to do with your puppy for play / exercise, post it here! especially those that live in the mid west, as I live in ND so she(at least for the time being) is an inside puppy due to the extremely cold winter.

Thanks!

Indoor tug -make sure she ends up winning, using a flit pole so she can chase that. Also nose games - hide a treat under one of 3 cups - she guesses which cup, then work up to hiding the treat somewhere in the same room. Also "helping" with housework, have her follow you around while you do chores - it helps to tie the leash to you - she gets exercise and has to pay attention to where you are going, also a great way to catch any housebreaking accidents.

Good suggestions! I always like games than are fun but mind challenging too. Just simple things like placing a toy maybe on top of the crate so she has to figure out on her own how to get it down, ect. Just little things that are fun but also get the mind thinking.
