I’m a nerd — I like podcasts. I subscribe to The Dog Trainer: Quick and Dirty Tips for Teaching and Caring for Your Pet. And the host, Jolanta Benal, has a great suggestion for giving your dog a workout when you don’t have the time (or you’re too hungover — Happy Halloween everyone!) to take her to the park: make her work for her food. Basically, instead of pouring it all in her bowl as usual, hide piles or pieces around your kitchen. In searching for it all, she’s working her brain, thus expending energy, and thus, tiring herself out. Benal is a genius; it works like a charm.
