How to relieve boredom when on exercise restriction?
I have a 5 year old Belgian Shepherd Border Collie mix who I am fostering from my vet tech program at my college. He has heartworms and is on exercise restriction. I am only allowed to leash walk him and he is not allowed to do any running, jumping or playing. My instructor has given me a Kong for him to help relieve boredom and has told me I can work on his commands. However even with these items he will not settle down. He paces around the house and will not relax at all. I was wondering if anyone had any tips to help relieve his boredom that does not include any running, jumping, or playing. He is not food motivated so anything involving food will not work on him. He is also not interested in his Kong that I was given despite my efforts to make it interesting. If anyone has any ideas I would be very thankful to hear them.
