Oh boy, could I use something step by step specific.
The books I've looked into all focus on basic obedience (sit, stay, etc). I'm not looking to do anything in particular, other than know that I have full control over my dog, and to give her a "job" and some mental stimulation every day.
I just want to give her something to look forward to, every day.
Have you ever done anything like find it or nose work? It can be a fun game. You get all kinds of different container like things..boxes, bags, etc. You get like 10 of them, put them in one area all spread out, put treats in like 4 of them and she has to find the ones with the treats in them. Chances are she will indicate or paw the container over to get to it...its fun, easy, and makes them think. By day two you will probably be able to tell her find it and she'll know what to do.
