Pomskies are smart and energetic, which makes them the perfect buddy for all kinds of indoor and outdoor activities. It also means that this hybrid mix of the Siberian Husky and Pomeranian will need both mental and physical stimulation, and as a Pomsky owner, it is your job to make sure you are meeting this need for your busy pal. Since these dogs are a bit adventurous, it should come as no surprise to you that your Pomsky is going to be up for almost any kind of activity that you allow them to enjoy with you. Most of these dogs have long, double coats, however, so you need to be careful keeping a Pomsky out in the heat for too long.
Fun-seeking Pomskies are the perfect swimming buddies. These dogs are often unafraid of the water, and they will eagerly join you in the pool, lake, or other body of water on a hot summer day. At the end of the summer, many public pools will have doggy days, where you can load up your Pomsky for a day of swimming at the pool. These doggy swims are generally less than $10 per dog, which makes them very affordable for most dog owners. Lakes and beaches also usually have certain spots where dogs are allowed in the water, and these locations can be free for the public to access. As a small to medium size breed, these dogs will wear out quickly, so an hour or two in the water will be plenty to tire them out for the day.
Exercise is crucial to the health and happiness of a Pomsky. If you are out and about at dog-friendly establishments, there is no reason that your Pomsky can't tag along. This hybrid is known for their friendliness, and social interactions help your Pomsky learn how to handle all kinds of people and animals. As long as you keep your dog on a leash, it is a great way for you to introduce your pup to new people of all kinds. Walking through a home improvement store, pet store, or outdoor market gives your Pomsky the opportunity to get a little exercise while meeting new people. Make sure you aren't out and about too long, however, because a tired pup isn't going to be much of a shopping buddy.
Create a fun obstacle course for your Pomsky with regular household items for hours of entertainment. With a few simple items like a chair, towels, and boxes, you can teach your dog to run through an obstacle course for a little exercise and mental stimulation. To help your Pomsky get the hang of the obstacle course, use treats to teach them what to do at each section of the course. Once your pooch knows how to handle each piece of the course, you can switch up the layout to see if your little athlete can still make it through the course. If you don't have some of the items listed above, improvise or use other items you have in your home. You don't need any specific items to create a fun obstacle course for your dog.
Since Pomskies need a lot of exercise, sometimes the best thing you can do with your pooch is go on a long walk. To feed a Pomsky's sense of adventure, you can take them on new routes or go on more challenging expeditions such as a hike. Pomskies enjoy daily walks, so you can go on walks pretty much as often as you would like.
A well-trained dog makes for a happier owner, but did you know that dogs enjoy training, too? Let your dog blow off a little steam and release some energy with obedience training classes. Make sure to keep your pup interested with a lot of playtime and treats.
Let your dog meet new friends while getting exercise and having fun. A local dog park is a great place for your dog to play with other local pups. You may even make some human friends while you are at the dog park.
