Hi, everyone!

I have a black Lab who's name is Cookie. He's a year old but I've realized he's too smart and he needs toys and entertainment stuff for him. Do you recommend something that has worked for you? I want to keep him busy, he's always paying attention to everything and I want to improve his knowledge.

thank you so much!

A smart dog will appreciate you best of all. Train and teach him tricks, obedience, agility, something that is mutually fun for both of you. Informal games are fine too, like tug & frisbee and fetch and long walks in the woods together, play dates with compatible dogs, etc..
I make my own tugs from scraps of fabric. Food in puzzle balls help pass the time, when you can't play.

Artdog hit it right on the nose - training is the best way to keep that mind stimulated. Lots of tricks and obedience cues will keep him happy.
I'm also a big fan of Kong toys, hide and seek games, and hiding treats for my guys.
