How to tire a puppy out?
Why does nature see fit to give puppies 20 times the energy of their caretakers?
I know it would be ideal, but I can't take walks with my puppy right now due to health considerations of mine (I'm in PT and undergoing medical care, working on it). So... I can get her to fetch a couple of times before she loses attention span -- she's only 12 weeks old. I have one of those fishing pole toys (they're fabulous!) and I'll stand there and play with her with it for a long time before she finally loses interest. She leaps and spins and runs. At other times she races around the house.
But... she still has too much energy. I feel sorry for her. My old dog is too old to play with her and my little dogs don't want to, so she drives them nuts.
Do you have any more ideas on how to wear her out?
