playing games like "catch" instead of "fetch".... where you have a stack of frisbees or a bucket of balls and toss them to Velma one at a time so she can catch them and drop them to catch the next one. Or two or a few at a time, or swat them with a paw or bump them with a nose or .... there are lots of variations.

Herders also like "go there" kinds of games, where you direct them to certain areas or objects or something. Dancing and agility are kinds of "go there" games. You don't have to join agility groups to do it, or buy a lot of equipment, you can lay out a course on the patio using things you have around the house for her to step on or over or under.

They can be taught "fetch", but the herders don't get the built in rewards from fetching that a lab does. The other kinds of things are much more fun in a herder's eyes.
