Presently, I have no dogs to train :-(

Katya goes in tomorrow morning to get a titanium canine 3/4 crown, and Jäger is on 2 months light duty with a gracilis muscle tear.

All the sudden I'm out of dogs to train lol. What all do you do to keep them mentally sharp in downtime like this? I'm making a plywood wall with scent holes to play with and keep them thinking. Any other ideas?

How long is Katya off? When Nike shattered a canine we just did tracking. She was only off from bitework for 2 weeks.

Vala had to take 6 weeks off for a pulled muscle. We did a lot of tracking and other scent work plus hand walking.
