At The Puppy Races

The problem of having a kelpie-border collie cross puppy who hasn't had all her shots is that she can't be taken out for walks and that when everyone in the house is away during the day, she hasn't got anyone to play with.

My solution to this is similar to those rabbits on a bar that go round and round at the dog races, except house size so that it could go down the side of your house and possibly round a corner. It should be a bit too high so as that the dog doesn't jump up and grab it for some unfortunate accident to occur, but enough to catch the dogs attention.

It should stop periodically and taunt the dog, and there would be times where it just stops for a while to give the pup a rest.

       Well, that will do it for around the house, but for a more versatile version of this idea see link.

       And to think I just wanted to get my dog a Labrador size hamster wheel.   

       My pup would love this.

       I like that it taunts the dog. Perhaps it could have programable/recordable audio of you saying things like "C'mere boy" and "go get it" before zipping of around a corner.

       I hope you meant "encourage" instead of "taunt". My mind came up with numerous cruel things to say to a puppy, so I have mentally slapped myself. Shame on me! I'll erase them from my mind.   

       OK, since you insist, here are a few: "You call yourself sheepdog? I've seen better herding by a fencepost!", "Your mother was a bitch", and "Oh, you're just a <in italics> border <end italics> collie?"
