LaRen616 I've been playing ball in the house, I know it's a no no but Draco loves his ball!

We work on basic obedience, either they play tug-o-war together or I play with them, we've been doing dog puzzles, Tug-A-Jug, chewing bones, we go to my mom's salon to socialize and we use the Everlasting Treatball.

That gets expensive quick. Real cheese, cream cheese, ground meat, peanut butter, yogurt... You can stuff anything in a Kong and freeze it.

Thanks, I figured as much, but a girl can always hope! I don't mind giving the Fresh Pet "Vital" as it's first two ingredients are turkey and turkey liver, but if it stays out too long it will spoil. Certainly not a problem with this weather, but come warm weather it will be time to change. I'll keep looking...

Is anyone who uses the canned cheese, giving it to a dog with a sensitive stomach? Hans has to have enzymes with every meal and I try to give any treats fairly close to meal time. For training treats, however, that is not always possible.

I started using cut up pieces of Fresh Pet "Vital" yesterday and was surprised it didn't cause an issue (yay!)

Thinking about trying canned cheese because so many of the dogs on here seem to love it. Any dogs with sensitive tummies able to tolerate it?

Tell me more about these ball jar rings and scent discrimination? I'm interested! Sounds fun!
Similar to the AKC articles....you scent one with your hand, keep the others free of scent(use tongs or just dump them out of a bag) and have the dog search it out(mark the scented one with a sharpie previous to your session, keep it separate from the scent free rings).
I bought some teaballs for this, but they were hard to find and more expensive than cheap canning jar ring tops.

David Winners Instead of can cheese, I sometimes use a marinade injector with the needle removed. You want to fill it with something thick, like cream cheese or peanut butter.

A military style M16 double magazine pouch will hold a can of spray cheese very well.

KathrynApril Dinozzo unfortunately is not one of those pups that seems to be fazed by even the below zero temperatures. He will gladly still play for an hour outside. I just keep myself bundled up. Only real problem I run into is we are in the back yard so much that the snow starts to turn into one big ice rink. It's about that time I usually start playing with him in the front of the yard or am lucky enough that it snows again. EDIT: I do use a lot of bully sticks and marrow bones to keep him busy & entertained too.
