    Defaultbored puppy- ideas please

    Okay- gabby is boooored.

    These are the limitations on her activity (because of her hips/ACL issues):
    - she can have a half-hour short leash walk on soft surfaces one time a day
    - she can go swimming

    I have three or four kongs, an everlasting treat ball, a busy buddy, more decapitated stuffed toys than you can imagine, nylabones, marrow bones, etc. I'm open to buying new toys (within reason) but I don't want to duplicate). I'm very limited in what I can stuff into her kongs because the chunky monkey is on a diet. I'm also limited on what training I can do with her because sit, down, and any repetitive motion are painful. I've been trick training (be shy and some others) - but that's about it.

    However, she's still ridiculously bored and destructive. I would love some more ideas on how to keep her occupied.

    Ugh, depends on which vet you ask.

    The first clown- another fourteen days.

    The second clown- 6-8 weeks.

    Training and games. Nothing tires a dog more than mental stimulation.
