1- Teach Your Dog to Grab His Leash
Before we go for a walk I have my dog go and grab her leash, then she has to fetch me my boots and her harness. It’s not asking much, but it’s enough to keep her focused and busy while I’m getting ready. Before I taught her to go grab those items she’d be spinning around, whining, and jumping while I got everything ready. As a bonus teaching your dog to go fetch their leash or harness is a nice way to get in some extra mental stimulation.
