Making sure your puppy stays in tip-top shape mentally as well as physically can be challenging.
Luckily, Dr. Patrick and his training friends are here to help!
Greg Kleva, host of It's a Dog's Life and Bark Busters Grand Master trainer says the following on keeping your pooch stimulated:
Reduce your puppy’s boredom by providing plenty of mental stimulation.
Simple training exercises and education is very tiring for a puppy’s brain. Make games out of training … keep session short and light, but test your puppy to think, think, think.
Try ‘Follow the Leader’ exercises (to reinforce following/walking/heel), 'Hide-n-Seek' (to reinforce coming when called), and 'Sit/Stay' at feeding time.
Be consistent, calm, and never use physical means to correct your dog.
