Default Tips to keep her occupied...

Hi ladies, does anyone have any tips on keeping Honey occupied?
After her spay last Friday it's been a struggle to keep her still and calm! I've taken her for a few walks today, ten mins at a time, but she is still raring to go. Can I up the length of the walks any more yet?
We've been doing training games, light fetch/tug, etc indoors but she's still bored and is barking and nipping now through boredom! Arghh help!

You are almost at a week out. How does the incision look ? what was the vet's stance on when she can do normal activity ? Personally I would walk the pup at a relaxed pace--I would not do major running or climbing. If she is bored I would go for a longer walk--just keep it relaxed. But I am not the vet....

I agree, as long as it's on-leash only, for a few more days.

You can also give her plenty to chew on, it'll stimulate the mind, relieve stress and keep her busy.

Instead of putting her food in a bowl you could feed her by stuffing a kong, or hollow bone and freeze it! I mix hard food and peanut butter, or chicken stock and kibble(Plastic wrap one end though.), got us through some spays and neuters with fosters. I agree with LS, other good chews will burn some energy too. Anything that can mentally tire them out helps along with the walks. Good luck lady!

Thanks for the replys girls. The incision looks very clean, no redness or bruising now, can't see the stitches. I rang my vet this morning and she has suggested the same - longer relaxed walks but no running and jumping. Thank you
She has been having her kibble in mind training games and in her kong, I also bought one of those treat balls she can roll around so the kibble falls out. Ohh she likes chicken stock, will try her with that in her kong too
She's had a lot of chews, she will settle for ten mins but then is back to monkeying around, so longer walks it is.
I guess it doesn't help that I am back at work after Xmas break too, bless her.
