My 13 week German Shepherd puppy had a Femoral Capital Physeal Fracture and had surgery on Saturday. I need ways to entertain while in the crate. She is only allowed to walk to go potty. She doesnít like to be cuddled or really even have us hold her. She is quite independent and has SO much energy. Iíve bought all kinds of chew toys/ bones and anything else I can think of. Do you have any other ideas? I will take any! This is going to be a long 8+ weeks! 😩

Blimey I had to go and google that, But I would say look on it as an opportunity to bond with and train your puppy. As long as you take care not to aggravate the area. Just google how to entertain a dog on crate rest and it throws up loads of sites. I looked at the first one which looked quite good but I can't say for the rest but your not the first to find yourself in this situation. Good luck, hope it goes well.

Eta there are loads of mind games for dogs on Amazon which should help.

Stuffed trachea are a good way to keep them entertained, or stuffed kongs.
