It rained here all-day Saturday so we did food games for exercise and entertainment. In this set up I made some puzzles for her to solve, as well as placing some more routine snack hides. My goals were to have her:
Improve strength and balance
Improve ‘sniffing stamina’ for Nose Work
And most importantly: have fun!
I was working on my Christmas decorations so there is some debris around and part of the puzzles!

Karen I love this! You created the ultimate indoor Doggie Disneyland! I never would have thought about turning regular chairs into a maze or obstacle course. The bubblewrap was genius too. She was sooooo motivated to solve all the little mysteries you set up for her.
Thanks for inspiring us to do this in our homes. For us it will be tough to do something like that in the RV but I may have to rearrange and take over my mom's furniture next time Nellie goes over. Mom will LOVE that! LOL!

i need to try something like that on Kenzie. She thinks she is so smart when it comes to puzzles, which she is but I need to make it more difficult. Set up some kind of maze.
Awesome job Elly!
My Beautiful Beloved Brownie was diagnosed with Osteosarcoma on February 26, 2019. With all odds against him he lived an additional one year and eight days with amputation, love, and prayer. I was honored to be his mom, and I have never been so proud! He will live forever in my Heart!
