My dog is an active 13-year-old (small dog). He will not play. He never has, not with toys of any kind nor with me (fetch, etc.). We think he had been abused before we got him, abused by being housebroken using old-fashioned punishment-based methods. Of course he is bored. How do I keep him from being bored?
Thank for replying, LeoRose. Those are excellent tips. I have tried a couple of them and failed, but I willl try the others, including the blogs you suggest. I really appreciate your thorough and useful assistance.
