|Mondays I take Cohen out to my training facility to observe/demo.
Tuesdays are our agility nights.
Wednesdays we try to do a 1hr walk after work.
Thursdays are our flyball nights.
Fridays are another long walk after work.
Saturdays Cohen just bums around with me and goes where I go.
Sundays are normally a competition, or prep for a competition.
Weekdays during the day Cohen gets out in the yard to chase a flirt pole or play tug a few times a day when she gets antsy. Someone will normally come home at lunch to give her a pee break and a bit of attention.
... Not everyone is as nuts as I am. But basically Cohen is now at an age where she's happy with an hour or two of direct interaction each day - she used to need 3-4+ when she was younger. Now between activities Cohen is fairly happy just to laze about with us.
Other ideas: hire a dog walker or neighbourhood kid to help out. Daycare. Feed meals in an interactive dog toy like a treat ball. Feed raw meals frozen. Give bully sticks or bones to keep a dog occupied. Teach new tricks or polish up old ones.
