Re: Rain non stop dog going nuts

New Orleans... fun. John goes to school there and has been telling me how flooded the streets have been in his part of town. Ugh, I don't think I could deal with it! But anyways...

"Find it!" is a fun game we play around here in the house. I hide Jerzey's favorite toy (which I have actually been unable to find the past few days ) and tell her "Find it!" I start off somewhere super obvious and increase the difficulty onces she started to understand the game. It forces her to use her brain and she gets so excited when I finally release her (I put her in a sit-stay while I hide the toy) that she just runs to go find it so I guess it's physical too. Lol.

Re: Rain non stop dog going nuts

The rainy crap is here too. With fog. Nice.

Lots of indoor play with toys and some obedience....maybe try to learn a new trick. This weekend we worked on "wait" by the door and on "playing dead".

Nothing serious, just something to keep her occupied!

Did I see something on CNN about torrential rains and flooding in New Orleans?

Try working on training to mentally tire her.

Re: Rain non stop dog going nuts

It's raining here in Canada too.. ugh, atleast in SW Ontario.

Stark and I went for a short walk, but it was cold, wet and just yucky outside.

Right now he is working on his Kong, but earlier we played the "find it" game with his ball. He LOVES that game.

I also put some treats under different sized containers and put them on the floor, he has to try to manuver the containers off the floor to get the treat.
