Is Layla food motivated? Sometimes when the weather is bad or too hot I'll feed her her evening meal one piece at a time. Sometimes I just throw it aways and make her come back. Or I'll put up a hurdle (like a stick or something) and make her jump back and forth over it by throwing the food on the other side each time. Sometimes just do basic obedience for the food too, sit, lay down, stand, stay come, etc. It's great to work their mind. Even a treat ball, buster cube or kong wobbler is good to work their mind to get their dinner.
Since you don't have a yard to play in. I would try to find a place where she could play off leash. Either a dog park, tennis courts, baseball field or something like that where it is completely fenced since huskies love to run and roam.
I think sometimes just taking them for a ride in the car helps. You can go to the petstore. And they could also just go for rides where you don't have to be out of the car like through a drive through fast food, bank, post office or to get gas.
And if could bike, rollerblade, skateboard or do anything else where she could pull you a little (not too much, she's still a pup) she'll love it.
I hope that helps a little. I think mental effort helps not need as much physical exercise, even though they do need both. Good luck.
