Games for dog on 'minimal exercise'
Gonna be a tad boring ( possibly) and suggest doing basic training exercises. Dogs like a Springers love completing tasks and pleasing you – I think he would love it and it obviously isn’t too taxing! An hour of this each evening would probably do you both the world of good 😀Posted 5 years ago
Sit, roll over, give paw, fetch specific items from a few, turn to heel etcetc The list is endless!
Have fun whatever you up doing and it’s only a week to go!hp_sourceMember
Our springer had a little mishap over the weekend and has ended up with a few staples in his leg and enforced low exercise regime for another week.
So apart from short walks and pootling around the garden we need to keep him amused, we normally get him to hunt around the house for toys and treats, he has enough toys, one or two that need thought to get treats, he loves taking the lids off bottles etc 🙂
Does anyone have any other good ideas to challenge him mentally… I’ve tried and he just can’t grasp poker or domino’s 🙂

How about putting one of his favourite toys in a cardboard box, tape it up, and let him destroy the box to get it out. This will keep my destructo-pup entertained for a good while. Can also do it with bits of cardboard layered around a treat in a pass-the-parcel stylee.Posted 5 years agohp_sourceMember
Cheers – had him playing Jase’ suggestion last night… not sure he was 100% on what was going on, but seemed to occupy him.
Might see if we can crack a bit of obedience tonight! Reckon he might get a night in the pub later in the week too, that always goes down well with us both, maximum fussing, minimum effort.Posted 5 years ago
