I've got a 7 month old shiba inu/collie mix that has a ton of energy and I need some ideas to drain it. She has been on 1 long walk earlier this afternoon (over a mile) and about 2 hours ago I took her on a walk around our apt complex and ended at a tennis court to play fetch (she can't be off the leash) until she was pooped.. and it definitely took awhile. This is typically the daily routine.. a few walks and some fetch.
Well.. she was tired from fetch for about 30 minutes, and then she ran in circles around the living room for 10 minutes.. and she is just running around being silly now. I'm probably going to take her to the small hill outside my apartment that she likes to run up and down on on her retractable leash. It's so funny on the hill.. whenever we walk by it she just runs up and down and up and down... its like a switch. Usually we will direct her walks by this hill just so she can do that for awhile.
I love that she has so much energy, but jeez... I can't keep up!! Does anybody know any fun games I can play with her to get her tired? playing fetch and going on walks are fun and all, but I can only take so much...
And, like I said, Im not comfortable with her being off a leash if she's not at the tennis or basketball court we have here. However, I do have a 26 foot retractable leash.
