Recently we are too lazy to go anywhere, and we have been trying to 'train' him to run within boundaries plus we had a great patch of greens just below our apartment! I will bring my portable chair, mp3 player, and TOto's water supplies and just let him to run lose in the small park area; staying within the pavement.
TOto knows that 'THIS IS HIS TERRITORY'!
We play 'Fetch' with him!
And he didn't bring back the ball, and decide to roll on it instead!
Everytime we play 'Fetch', he is always very 'smelly', by the time we want to throw the ball; he is already waiting halfway of the run! So we will purposely throw the opposite direction of where he is waiting!
From time to time, there will be a few familiar dogs to play with TOto and some owners would let loose their dogs to play with TOto and TOto only; because they trust that TOto will not elope with their dogs.
We guess this should be enough stimulation for him for the day ...
Usually we stayed for about an hour because if TOto gets too tired, he gets cranky and suddenly becomes abit 'kuku' and doesn't listen to recalls, and taking all the 'risk' that he is not allow to.
And we have to pull him by his leash to GO HOME!
But for most of the time, he is a perfect puppy!
