Default Stimulation/games?

I have a 9 week old Australian Shepherd mix puppy who needs some more brain games/stimulation. We have some of the toys with treats to roll around, kongs.. etc! I am going to start with nose work games soon as well. Any other ideas? What would be some fun games to play that will eventually benefit him in agility?

Thanks!

Sadie has some of the treat balls and/or puzzles that she has to figure out how to get the treat. Only problem is, she usually figures it out in about 3 seconds.
For activity, horse balls keep her busy for hours.
I also scatter and hide small treats throughout the yard.

We like to play find-it i the house when Frodo gets bored. I can still do small household tasks while he follows me around the house. I'll stuff a toy with a treat and step around a corner to hide the toy and then I'll come back to him and tell him to find it. Usually he'll bring it back after he eats the treat, so I can be doing dishes or folding laundry or something while we're doing this. I try to make it a little more challenging for him to find it each time.
