Default Kelpie mental stimulation!

My pup Jet is 3 months old now, he's a Kelpie cross. I take him on 2 walks a day both on lead and off lead to play with the other dogs (we are on 2200 acres) plenty of land to run about on! Although he gets plenty of exercise I still haven't found a way for him to stimulate he's little brain while I'm at work, being a kelpie he is pretty much bred to roundup sheep, he has constant energy and no matter how many toys are in he's area, he seems to always be looking for something to do! I hate him being on the chain during the day and was wondering if anyone out there has some ideas to keep there pups/dogs busy while your away!

FrodoMom,
Treiball or driveball is a new sport suitable for almost any dog, but perfect for the high energy, high drive dog. It can be taught and practiced just for fun, or you can join competitions. Regardless, training for treiball can help take your communication to the next level with your dog. Training for Treiball helps build focus and off leash control while also being a great outlet for your dogs mental and physical energy.
Although Treiball is the word for Ball Herding, it's kind of like soccer for dogs. The balls are really large and different colors. I've seen a couple videos, and it is interesting, to say the least.

Big J,
I've read on Leerburg's website (Leerburg Dog Training | 16,000 pages of dog training information, 300 free streaming videos, DVDs and Free Dog Training ebooks) he raises his high drive Mali's in xpens rather than crates.

Here are two videos.
