Question Aussiedor Pup living in apartment - need tips

my aussiedor is about 3 months old now and his energy level is fast increasing. we currently live in a 1000 sqft, first floor apartment, which is going very well given his current small size (we will be moving into a 3 story w fenced backyard in a few months.) my question is, what can I do to keep a half working dog like an Aussiedor stimulated? we thankfully have ample grassy areas in the complex, as well as front yard to play in, so he definitely has enough room to go running with me and play fetch with me. however, since it is winter he has been wanting to go out less and less. he is fully pee pad trained but I rather him go outside, obviously. since he doesn't like to be out in the snow for long period of time, im hoping someone could help me with some games or tricks we can learn to keep him stimulated. we play a lot of hide and seek and I set up little obstacle courses for him now and he also has a treat puzzle that he LOVES to do, but he mastered it on the first try!

please do let me know of any tips or tricks you may have

For the potty time you can teach the pup to use a bell. Hang a bell near the door and everytime you go outside take there paw or more and have them ring it, should pick it up rather quick.

As for keeping them enriched, kongs stuffed with treats or food or peanut butter. You can also buy puzzle toys to keep the brain active and busy. Also a cheep quick toy is take a muffin tin and tenis balls and hid a treat in one of the holes, cover with the balls and let them figure out which one has the treat.
