Hi,

Diana is 5months old now. I take her on daily walks. Apart from that what should I do to keep her exercised, mentally stimulated and calm.

Hi. That's quite a broad question. The possibilities are almost endless. I have struggled with this a little bit, mainly because I simply was not being creative with it. I suggest you take a look at these two threads (there are many others on this website, just use the search function and you'll find dozens if not hundreds of threads about it). :)

ps: beautiful pup by the way!

If I could wind back the clock, at 5 months old I would have been doing way more engagement exercises and games with mine :) this is opposed to taking him for walks or to the park to play with every dog he came across, just cos he was so cute and confident. Engagement games are our favourite thing to do now (although mine is 21 months now), and many of them aren't strenuous on their bodies at all but the training aspect really tires him out. I wish I started when he was a baby!

Start doing off leash hiking. If he's a wanderer use a check cord. I limit to 30ft. Also, it was suggested to do nose work by people on here. I've just started. It is great exercise.
