Moriah I have been so impressed about how my almost 5-month puppy has been so careful around me--especially on stairs. He has been wonderful company, too. Good luck and happy walking soon!

GSxOwner That is a game my dog would definitely play! Thank you! I hope you heal up quick too! I am very thankful for my dog's company when healing and being stuck at home, can't wait until we can get back to our walks.

Moriah I am trying to think of some ways to exercise my GS X...while I am waiting for a broken foot to heal

Sorry to hear about your foot. I came home yesterday with total knee replacement.

This a.m. I played a game where I threw a treat, the dog chased it and ate it, then he came back for a sit and a treat. Because of the food, he was willing to play for a while.

I will be watching this thread for more ideas myself.

GSxOwner Hmmm I thought about the flirt pole,but she gets so obsessed over thigs like that I am sure she would knock me over trying to get it haha. She is uneasy around my exercise ball but maybe I could work on that try treiball. Thank you for the ideas if you think of anymore pls post!

Daisy&Lucky's Mom Do you have a fenced in area like a tennis court the fishing pool idea as flirt pole would allow you to sit cast the line with something to get the dog to chase might work. Mental games like hide it are great. There's also Trieball check it out on the dogs sports section of the forum.Not sure if it would be to much with your broken foot. The other thing but would cost money is a dog walker.treadmiil would tire her out physically.

wolfie13 I'm sorry that you are hurt. I think you could do a treadmill. Could also try the fishing pole. That may work and I don't requires for you to be up. Could also try learning fetch.

Msmaria I looked on you tube for dog tricks and training I could do that didnt involve me walking or hopping around. Examples Settle, bang your dead, hold items, nose marking on my hand then we switched to a color circle that I held out using a straw then a broom. I also had the kids walk him. If you dont have grown kids maybe you can hire a dog walker.

onyx'girl I rolled my ankle in April, tore ligaments and broke a bone in my foot. It was hard to keep the dogs entertained, at least they had each other to romp around with while I was on crutches.
I hope you heal quickly.

NancyJ When I broke my ankle, I farmed my little wild child out to someone I trusted. I was in a walker for 8 weeks because they pinned it and did not cast it.
