Nothing fancy needed for this great time. Watch the fun your pup will have playing with a good oscillating sprinkler and water your lawn at the same time. Available at any hardware store (and even at larger grocery stores), just attach the sprinkler to the hose and prepare to laugh. Which way will the water go? Can he or she figure out how to get a drink without getting the rest of their body wet? Step up the challenge factor and toss his or her favorite ball in the mix.
