|According to my brother, who is also Huckleberry's dog trainer, mental stimulation can be just as exhausting, if not more so, than physical exercise When I am tired on my day off and don't feel like walking Huck very far I do a few 5-10 minute training sessions throughout the day. I have him sit, lay, come, leave it, drop it, spin, twist, crawl, pretty much anything I can think of. He loves it, and he passes out afterwards. A Kong filled with food/yogurt/treats which has been frozen can also provide mental stimulation. Just make sure you take the training treats out of his daily allotment of food.
Also, are there any doggie daycares in your area? I work at one, and some people bring their pups in one day a week for socialization and exercise.
