Introduction

The Jafox is a small, affectionate designer breed that's the result of crossing a Japanese Chin with a Toy Fox Terrier. This snuggly pooch has lots of energy and loves to play. They tend to get along well with other pets and children. Thanks to this fur-baby's size, they work well in a home or apartment. If you're planning to get one of these pups, train and socialize them early to help counter their independent and stubborn tendencies. Provide your canine companion with about 45 minutes of activity a day to keep them content and to prevent anxious or aggressive behaviors like barking and chewing.

One puptastic activity for your Jafox is a game of fetch. Most dogs pawsitively love this game, and Jafoxes are no exception. Not only will they get their daily exercise, but it's also a grrr-eat way to work on obedience. Make your pup sit and wait for a release command to retrieve the object. Once Fido has the item, issue a recall order and have them give or drop the toy for you. Encourage your pal's compliance with praise and treats. You can play the game inside or outside, so the weather is not a limiting factor for the activity.
Step
1
Teach fetch
When you first teach your pal to fetch, use a favorite toy. Let your pooch sniff and play with it for a little while, then tell them to sit and toss the item a few feet away. Give a fetch command and let Fido go after the object. Praise them for chasing and picking up the toy.
Step
2
Teach give
Recall your pal after they pick up the object. When Fido comes to you, offer a tasty treat and tell them to give it. Let your pup enjoy the food and praise them when they release the toy. Repeat the process (but don't go overboard with the treats!). Once your furry friend gets the idea, increase the distance and have fun watching your pal go dog wild.

Activity description
In Rally-O, you can spend time with your special pal while you review obedience commands. In this activity, you and your pup work together as a team to complete a series of 15 to 30 exercises. You'll move from station to station and follow the instructions to complete the course. The sport provides both mental and physical stimulation for your furry friend. Because Fido must attend to you for success, the two of you will build a stronger bond. As your pooch improves their responsiveness, you can advance from the novice class to the master level. At the top rung, your Jafox will go through the routine without a leash.
Step
1
Learn obedience
Before you're ready for Rally, you'll need to teach your pup beginner obedience. Find a local class where you and Fido can work on the basic commands. Practice sit, stay, come, heel, and more until your furry friend shows mastery. Then you'll be ready to take your training to the next level.
Step
2
Take a rally class
The best way to learn about Rally Obedience is to enroll in a class with your special pal. Let the instructor walk you through the different stations that you can encounter in a course. Create signs and practice the activities at home. As you improve, find a local group or club where you and your pal can participate in events.

Activity description
Although small, this pup is athletic and energetic, which is why your fur-baby would benefit from participating in agility. Once you've been through a beginner's obedience class with your pal, you can start teaching them about the different obstacles. Enroll in a course with a local trainer or club to learn how to guide your pooch through challenges like weave poles, inclines, see-saws, and hurdles. This sport provides a range of benefits, and your Jafox will get plenty of physical and mental stimulation. They'll also work closely with you and increase their bond. Once you understand the mechanics of agility, decide whether to compete or make equipment to use in your back yard.
Step
1
Learn agility
Once you have beginner obedience under your belt, you can learn agility. Find a local kennel club or group that offers courses. The instructors will show you how to work with your furry pal and lead them through the obstacles. You'll work together on challenges like weave poles, tunnels, and hurdles.
Step
2
Do agility
When you know about the different obstacles, you can practice at home or with a local group. Check with the American Kennel Club for the specs for homemade equipment. Teach your pal to observe your directions so that they complete the course in order. As you polish your technique, consider competing in an agility trial.

Hide and Seek

One way to have fun with Fido is by playing a game of hide and seek. Teach your pup to sit while you find a secret place. Once you're behind a door, in a closet, or another concealed spot, call your pal. Praise and reward them when they locate you.

Interactive Toy

Even if you provide an hour of daily activity for your pup, they can get bored when you're not home with them. Try an interactive toy like a hide and seek plush or a treat dispenser to occupy your pooch while you're away.

Conclusion

Your little fur-ball of energy can be a delightful addition to the family when you provide enough activity for them. Fortunately, with a small breed like the Jafox, you can play games just about anywhere to keep them satisfied. This pup will also enjoy curling up with you on the couch when you're ready to chill.
