I have a 6 month old Border Collie/Aussie that is bored out of its mind during the day. We take her on 30 minute to one hour walks every morning and night, do 15 minute training sessions 3 times a day, and play with her when her energy is overloaded, but she is getting destructive, misbehaving on walks and around the house, and is searches for something to do.
We have one of those 'puzzle balls' where she rolls it around and food falls out, but that only occupies her for about 10 minutes.
Does anyone have suggestions on what we can do to entertain her? I work from home and she's just wandering the yard when outside and her pen when inside looking for things to chew up or destroy. She has no shortage of chew toys, but is now chewing up tarps, the carpet, her bowl, etc.
Any thoughts? It's getting terrible and I feel awful that she's so bored but simply am at a loss on how to keep her mentally and physically occupied.
