Cheyanna Fiona and I wrestle.
I play hide and go seek with her. I will have her stay and run off and hide. Then I call her and she has to come find me. She always does.
I will also make a trail of hot dogs for Fiona to follow. Sometimes I do it in her sight and the next is out of sight.
And of course the always pleasing flirt pole.

You really want to wear your dog out? Start doing area searches in the woods or on a busy street. 45 minutes of searching will wipe out most dogs and they have a blast.

MaggieRoseLee The information and training on this ---> work as well for dogs that are older! So many things to teach our dogs.

Course I love going to classes. Amazing how much our dogs can do when WE learn too

Stosh Stosh loves frisbee and fetch got a ittle boring for me so I taught him to run around things- trees, a chair, whatever. He runs around it and then I throw the frisbee. He also jumps over logs then gets the frisbee. You can get a dvd from called 'Relationship Games for You and Your Dog'. Lots of fun and useful stuff

Kahrg4 I started adding commands into Cafall's games of fetch. He circles me, jumps, speaks, gets into a heel position, drops the ball or hands off the ball all on command. We've done ball abandonment training. At least that's what I'm calling it. He'd have to drop the ball mid return on command or watch me throw it while holding a stay by my side. Trust me that one was a lot harder than I expected. lol. Sometimes I get him to run out and then toss the ball real close to me when he's not looking and make him 'search' for it.

Juliem24 Hide and seek. It's been a long winter, and this has become a favorite.. Hide a treat and tell him to find it. The first couple times, I hid it while he watched me, then I started going in different rooms, upstairs, on top of the desk...etc. I think it's as fun for me as it is for him... It has been a long winter...
