I think you may need to adjust the size of your avatar picture Smile

We use old egg boxs to hide treats in for Rocky and also hide small pieces of treats /sausage around the home for him to find, hide them under a rug or a cushion.

I do same sort of game with Vinnie hiding treats and putting one in a hand behind my back and get him to pick which hand it is in with his paw. Surprisingly he gets it right most of the time! Big Grin

I do some obedience training with Maxi, and recently some Agility training as well.
Teach her to sit, drop, shake and other tricks, just make sure you keep the training sessions short and fun. 5-10 min and finish with something she knows!

There is lot's of different toys you can use for her food, such as a Kong Wobbler or a regular Kong. If you feed her dryfood then the Kong Wobbler is great!
You can hide food in cardboard boxes for her to rip to get into or hide food around the house or under plastic containers (put out 5-10 containers upside down with food under one and let her sniff her way to the right one).
