I think distractions are a good suggestion. I use one of those cubes that you can put kibble or small treats in. They then have to roll it around to get a reward. It keeps Katie busy a long time. Tyler can't be bothered by the work it takes to tip it on it's proper side, so he just follows Katie around and and grabs anything she might miss. (At these times we call him "Mr. Upper-Management"…...he does no work, but grabs all the rewards:) )
We also keeps the blinds all the way up, or half way up. Just an additional suggestion. Be sure when your blinds are up that the cord is shortened and secured out or reach. Ty got his head in between the two lines one day and started to struggle. Thankfully I was just outside the window when his head clunked the glass and I noticed the problem and ran inside. Since then we roll the excess and place it on the bottom rail. For some windows we purchased small cord wraps (like you find on a flag pole) and we wrap excess cord around these.
I had, for many years, heard of the strangulation hazard for children, but I never thought how it may relate to my dogs.
