That might be fun to try once we get back into training more. I was looking for a website on how to begin tracking there are so many I just want a step by step simple site for just for fun tracking.

I bought Fiona several puzzles for dogs. You hide treats and the dog has to move things to get to the treats. Suppose to take lots of time and give you quality time with your dog. Fiona figured it out in 60 seconds. $15 for 60 seconds. But we still try it now and then. She has yet to forget how to do it. I am not sure if it is just Fiona or all GSD, but maybe you could come up with some puzzles. I am looking for a candy dispenser that I can put kibble in and she has to move a lever to get it.Mentally Stimulateing Games-imageuploadedbypg-free1355982275.529240.jpg

I just got Chief the IQ ball after a day of him being afraid of it and scare to death of me if I was holding it now he LOVES it! Batting it all over the house. Actually take him awhile to get it all out even with it on the easiest setting and as full as I can make it he is getting better and I think it will take him even longer to get it all out once I start making it harder. I don't want to make it to hard yet. He is really enjoying it though!!

Was quite funny he was right next to me a few times and didn't find me until he made another couple rounds if he took awhile and he was on the other side of the basement I would make a sound and it would perk him up and he would run all over to find me. I think this tired him out more than any amount of exercise I have given him and he seemed so happy and egar to find me. Plus him running up and down. The stairs was tiring him out, because everytime he found me I would go to the stairs point and say upstairs then I would hide again.

I was wondering what are some other fun mentally stimulating games We could play to tire him out.
We played our first game of hide and seek. She got SO excited!

My 9 week old is having a blast playing soccer with a gallon water container. She goes wild and tackles it all around the room.

This isn't really a game but this morning my Costco card fell on the hardwood floor and Buck went straight for it and spent about a half hour trying to pick it up with his teeth and using his paws to push it around. It was adorable and fun to watch, and he wore himself out and finally quit. It went under a throw rug and he had fun getting under there to find it.
