There are many activities for dogs with certain temperaments, and many times owners must find suitable activities to keep them content as they are being raised. For example, a dog with a laid back, or even “lazy” temperament, such as the Basset Hound will only need a few go-to activities to keep them active and happy. As you may know, dogs like this are perfectly content to be couch potatoes, unless they are used for hunting. Even if they are used for hunting, they still love that couch! If you have a dog that is your family companion and not used for sport or work, it is imperative that you have a few activities that they can do to feel successful and satisfied within their mind, body, and spirit. For the dogs with the best temperament, luckily, there are many fun and stimulating activities that they (and you!) will love!
Kids are not the only ones who love playing with bubbles! Try them out with your dog! Of course, make sure they are non-toxic, just as you would with kids. Take your dog outside and see how he reacts to several bubbles being blown. Many dogs are quite entertained by closely watching, snapping at, or even chasing bubbles in the air.
Do you remember playing Hide and Seek as a kid? Well, dogs like the game as well! If you have a dog with the best temperament, chances are the game will be fun for both of you. You can play Hide and Seek indoors or out. You can also play for as long as you like! Be sure to have very small treats on hand for when you are found. You can assist your dog in finding you by, once hidden, calling out his name. When your dog finds you, you may see that the tail will wag and a look of satisfaction will be upon the face!
