This winter has been really tough to get Stewie enough exercise. We haven’t been spending much time outside. So we are doing a lot of activities in the house. We practice go on’s to a target at the end of the hall. We also practice our contact behavior using a mouse pad. We are learning a new trick that is supposed to be good for hind end awareness, putting his front feet on a stool and circling around it. I call it the Elephant Trick! We started shaping that the other night. Stewie already knows to put his front feet on top of the stool. I will take some pictures soon and post them.
Try to tire out the Terrier
Winter is also a great time to practice start line stays and verbal releases, and Crate Games, Stewie loves that!
Any good ideas to tire him out, please send them our way!
