Everyday, simple tasks can be made into work for your dog. Raylan has to sit before he gets any attention. He has to sit and wait before going in or out a door. Even dinner is work for Raylan. He has to solve the puzzle and work to open each compartment to get to his food (middle picture below). There are lots of different doggie dinner puzzles available for purchase which range from easy to hard depending on your dog's ability level.
Raylan also needed to work on his self control as his impulses were getting him into trouble with his family. Sometimes working hard for him is sitting still on the front porch and ignoring distractions like the neighbor mowing the lawn and passing cars. Sitting still can be hard work too!
Good Job Raylan!
