It rained today. All day, so far. Which is a good excuse for me to binge on streaming movies and video games … except for those dogs who think up stuff like this if they don’t get their pesky exercise needs met:
So we had to go to our backup indoor activities: Balance and core work, today primarily using the peanut and cavaletti.
This is a nice exercise, although so far Squash is the only one who gets it:
And the youngsters did a little cavaletti work. I made that cavaletti so that I could vary the height, but I only have one length of legs right now so it’s a little taller than ideal for Maisy and a little shorter than ideal for Squash, but we made do.
And then Pip wanted to play. He’s never done this before so I started with the cavalettis just flat on the ground:
He got the hang of it pretty fast, so although again this height is a bit taller than is ideal, we fooled around with it a little bit. He might just learn that he has back legs, yet.
Maybe a half hour altogether between the three dogs followed up with some bully stick action bought me one undisturbed nap and a movie, a fair price to pay. It’s supposed to rain all week, so I’m sure we’ll get lots of practice and I’ll learn the particulars of that currency exchange rate.
