When you mix a Siberian husky and a Dalmatian, you get a dog that is full of energy so you will definitely need to plan activities and games for your pup. Your playful and energetic dog is probably tough to keep up with as they are always on the go. However, you know they have a great loving side too and sometimes just want to snuggle up with you on the couch and relax. Try one of these games to play with your Dalmatian Husky and then plan a nice cuddle session shortly after!
While many dogs have a tendency to dig (it is just in their nature), Huskies are known to be diggers. Since your pup is part Husky, chances are you have encountered this need to dig. Unfortunately, digging is not always a welcome activity for a domesticated pet. After all, as much as you love your dog, you don’t' want them digging up your backyard! Giving your Dalmatian Husky an outlet for this digging energy is a great idea and there are a few ways you can do this without destroying your landscaping! Some activities your dog can even do inside - perfect for those constantly digging dogs.
Dalmatians are very playful and active dogs that require a lot of exercise. Huskies are a breed that may become overweight if not exercised properly. The answer to both personality traits (since you have a combination pup!) is to exercise of course! It is not only something your Dalmatian Husky needs to stay healthy but it is something they will truly enjoy doing. Of course, it is also great for you to get out there with your dog too, not just for exercise but for bonding purposes. While there are many ways to make sure your Dalmatian Husky gets their energy out, here are a few places you can start.
If you happen to live somewhere with an abundance of snow or at least a season of snow, take advantage of the winter weather and your Dalmatian Husky's natural love of snow (especially from the Husky side!). Sledding is a great activity for your dog as it will get them out in the environment that they love and it will also get out some of that extreme Dalmatian energy. Of course sledding is weather permitting and it can be a lot of training and hard work but in the end, you and your dog will absolutely love going sledding together.
Both Huskies and Dalmatians are known to be 'free spirits' and not the easiest to train. Be sure to focus on training with your dog on a regular basis in order to tame this personality trait a little bit.
Dalmatian Huskies tend to be pretty big shedders so you may want to devote a little time with your pup grooming them. While this activity is beneficial to the cleanliness of your house, your dog will also love being pampered
Dalmatian Huskies are not your average "sit around the house" type of dog and why would you want that anyway? Dogs are supposed to be fun and playful and that is exactly what you got with this breed. Make sure to enjoy your dog's energetic personality and give them the outlet for all that energy. Your dog will be happier and you will be happier as well when your dog spends the day having fun so that they can come home and relax with you.
