  1. Herding games for puppy?

    Dog Training Forum
    I have a 12-ish week old Corgi puppy. He shows some pretty strong herding instinct. I've gotten him to not nip my heels when I'm letting him chase me. But I'd feel bad to train the herding instinct out of him completely. I was wondering if there are any good games I could play with him to help...

    Dog Training Forum
    Hi there, I'd like some opinions on the different puzzle toys. I have two different shaped stuffable kong toys.

  3. Exercise and Stimulation

    General Dog Forum
    Okay, so I will be honest. I'm a pretty lazy person. However, I try to do my best to ensure that my dogs are exercised and stimulated properly. I am looking for new things to stimulate and exercise them, though. I am sure they are getting bored of the things we do, just like I am. Also, all of...

  8. Is playing tug okay?

    First Time Dog Owner and Basic Questions
    We have a 3 mo old lab/border collie cross. I play tug with her and it's evident that she really enjoys it; she'll grab her tug toy and bring it to me when she wants to play. Since it's an easy game to play with her and she enjoys it, I generally oblige, unless I'm busy with something. My...
