Fun dog game!

One of our favorite games
Not a winter game!

There are so many fun things to do when the weather is nice out like it was today.  Unfortunately over the past couple of days we have skipped our daily walks because of Fia's seizures.  We were committed to going to Barks in the Park today in Gardiner but never made it.  Tyson and Kara were ready to go but I didn't want to leave Fia behind, and worried that she might have a seizure if we brought her to the Park. 

So we stayed home again.  Tyson and Kara really needed to burn some energy so we all spent the afternoon on the deck.  And we played one of our favorite games "Bobbing for Toys"!  If you are wondering what we mean here are a few things you will need:

1 Kiddie pool
3-4 Balls or toys that float.  Preferably tennis balls (more dogs add more toys!)
And Dogs!

All you have to do is fill the pool up and toss the toys in the pool and watch the dogs take care of the rest.  This is a fun game that keeps the arousal level down.  Even dogs that normally wouldn't chase the ball will play this game. 

It's a great way to get the dogs worn out and keep them cool at the same time!  Even though water is involved, we do recommend on very hot days to play this game and all others in the late afternoon or early evening to avoid heat stroke.  Heat stroke is very serious and is preventable.  During those very hot days it is best to keep your dogs indoors where it is cool.  

Happy dipping!!!  Enjoy our videos!
