Annie's home alone for most of the day and as a high energy dog, she's ready to burn it off when I get home. I need some more ideas for fun energy intensive excercise for her to do, since obviously a walk around the block doesn't cut it(although she gets one anyways as soon as i get home, then more fun) I live in an apartment complex so i can't just put her in the back yard to chase a ball and she doesn't quite get the idea of fetch anyways..she loves to chase, but actually picking it up and bringing it back, not so fun...she'll run to it as fast as she can, most times leave it right where it landed and run back to me like...ok mom..go pick it up and throw it again. Off leash is hard since there are often other dogs around ,and she's so social if one's pretty close she's deaf to "come" and she just HAS to meet it. But right now her favorite game is when we play catch. She loves to run back and forth between my boyfriend and I while we throw a football..often with a flying leap in the air next too us once we catch it(she started off wanting to play tackle football, but i convinced my boyfriend it was not a smart idea to let a pit bull go running and flying into someone, regardless of how fun he and the dog thought it was..so she simply jumps AWAY from us now, which i've got to get a picture of because i swear she gets about 4 ft in the air)she'd do it till she collapsed I'm sure...and other dogs are ignored when she plays this game, but I get kinda bored playing catch sometimes...and I'm home alone a lot, so it's hard to play catch by myself, so any other ideas that preferably involve a leash? I know running with the dog is probably the best option, but when I get home i've usually been gone all day working with horses and cleaning stalls and i'm beat, i've got enough energy to get out with the dog, but running is asking a bit much of my body by that point, sometimes we run in the morning before i start my day though.
