Can you take walks around the building, or perhaps do a 2 minute freeshaping session with the clicker a couple times a day— something where you can teach a stupid trick and she can use her brain a bit?
I teach everything from tech to an O&M/ community integration class which involves walking at least a 1/2 mile and my dog is always ready to leave at the end of the day. I think they just know when it's time to scoot! *smile*

> Hey Daryl and List, I am in a very similar situation with my Sadie. This poodle is something else. I don't really have any suggestions as I am struggling in this area. I just wanted you to know that this is not something you are dealing loneddwith I'm with you in this, and I am also listening for tidbits and tips to help me occupy my girl at work. I can't put her by a window because she is too vocal. lol. Anyway, I will help in any way that I can. Is there a time or do you have a few minute break in any of your day where you can play with her, however you play with her that doesn't cause too much noise? Just a thought. That's what I do with . We play tug, but not too vigorously. I never let her win, always telling her to drop it, so that she knows whose toy it really is. lol Hope that you can glean some tips from here. Talk soon.

>> Hi, everyone. Sorry for any typos... I have a bandaged finger that makes typing complicated.
>> I've started to notice that Jenny seems to be BORED at work. During the morning, she seems really content to sleep, but afvter about noon, she starts getting restless. She'll move away from her bed, sometimes enthusiastically greet anyone who remotely pays attention to her, to the point where she will literally prance and try and run out the door when she knows we're gboing home.
>> In previous jobs I have had, there has always been a window, or access to some form of sunlight, if she wants to rest in it... I've been able to walk somewhere most days at lunch, and even if not, we could go around the block for some fresh air. At this job, there is no sunshine, no windows, and the only place we can really walk is the bus stop - there's no sidewalks, no restaurants to go to for lunch.
>> She seems bored of her bones, and I am reluctant to use treat puzzles regularly.
>> ANY other suggestions?
