Active dogs can be hard to control. Just having space for them to run may not be enough. Today, we have a great tip on how to exercise your dog's brain, as well as his or her body.

Zelda is our featured Pet of the Week, plus Alex from has a great tip on how to use your dog's nose to help get out some of that built-up energy.

Zelda is a great pup -- a lab mix -- she's just about 5-months-old. She gets along fine with other dogs and loves people, plus she would be great with kids. She could use a home with a yard, and needs plenty of exercise. If you're looking for a lifetime companion, then think about giving Zelda her first forever home.

For more information on Zelda, and all the other adoptable Dogs and Cats, call the Animal Welfare Society at (860) 354-1350 or visit them on Dodd Road in New Milford.

They’re open Tuesday from 11 AM to 7 PM, and Wednesday through Saturday from 11 AM to 2 PM.
