Hi my 3 year old dog has had surgery to his hind leg and is on bed rest. Has anyone any ideas on keeping him occupied and happy ? We currently use kongs with frozen food in , hiding food in cups / our hands, lots of stroking. I am worried about him putting on weight however.

The Canine Enrichment facebook group has lots of ideas if you search relevant terms like "crate rest" smile www.facebook.com/groups/canineenrichment/

We used to take ours for a drive in the car when he’s had surgery , he loves a little trip out .

Does he have any pizzles? Bulls penis- they stink but keep them occupied for hours.
