Introduction

If you are the proud owner of a Rottie Bordeaux, then you will be used to a large, cuddly, affectionate and somewhat "drooly" dog that's happy to be both your companion and your bodyguard. A Rottie Bordeaux is a stunning mix between a Rottweiler and a Dogue de Bordeaux - both large breeds with guarding and companionship qualities. While they will fit in well with your family seamlessly, they do require an experienced owner with a firm hand. What's more, they require someone who has the time to exercise them on a regular basis to prevent naughty and destructive behavior as well as obesity. Here are a few of the many possible activity options.

Activity description
On a hot summer's day, it can be challenging to give your pampered pooch the exercise they need. If it's too hot for you to step on the pavement in bare feet, then it's far too hot for them. Therefore, a trip to your local watering hole could be the outing you both need. They get much-needed exercise, and you get to enjoy time in the sunshine. All you need is a towel, a doggy waste bag, toys to play with and a leash. You are sure to find you and your furry friend have plenty of fun in the sun.
Step
1
Find a beach
Not every beach you come across is going to be dog-friendly. What's more, densely populated beaches can be a playground for dogs much to the disgust of other beach-goers. Therefore, finding a pet-friendly beach or river that's off the beaten track is a good idea. Huntington Dog Beach in California is a popular option for many dog owners, as is Fort Myers Beach in Florida. These are leash-free zones, perfect for if your dog is well-trained and obedient.

Head to the beach
Once you've found a beach that ticks all the boxes, it's time to hit the road. Your furry friend is bound to love leaving the confines of your backyard for what they can only describe as greener pastures. The Rottie Bordeaux breed is one that requires plenty of space to roam, so be sure to bring toys such as Frisbees and balls you can throw a far distance. After all that fun and exercise in the sun, both you and your pup are sure to come home ready for a decent sleep.

Activity description
The Rottie Bordeaux breed is one that requires a fairly dominant owner, and one that's going to pay attention to training right from the puppy stage. While every owner sees the benefits in teaching basic commands such as sit, stay, and heel, there are others that you need to teach your Rottie Bordeaux puppy due to their large size. Because of their significant size, they are more than capable of overpowering their owner, or anyone else. Therefore, the more control you have over your dog, the safer it is for everyone. Obedience training is reasonably affordable, and there is bound to be at least one within a short driving distance from your home. What's more, you normally only need to commit to a one-hour session per week, and you can take part in any weather.
Step
1
Find a facility
Given the large size of the Rottie Bordeaux, it takes not only an experienced owner but an experienced trainer as well. Therefore, it's helpful to do your research before you go ahead and sign up. Find out whether that particular trainer is skilled in the management of large dogs. What's more, a trainer with patience is also necessary. Your furry friend is not the fastest learner when it comes to training. Therefore, they may need more time to learn than most dogs.
Step
2
Practice at home
Once you've begun taking your Rottie Bordeaux for training, set aside time daily so that you can practice what has been taught in preparation for the next class. Often, lessons build upon the previous one so it is essential that your dog knows what is expected of them week by week.

Activity description
The Rottie Bordeaux breed requires socialization from a young age - both with people and other dogs. If your puppy had very few littermates or wasn't introduced to other dogs before you got them, you can begin the process with a trip to the dog park. On a sunny day when you have a spare hour up your sleeve, grab a waste bag and a toy and walk your pup to the dog park. Make sure it's one that has a separate area for large dogs, as Rottie Bordeaux dogs can weigh over 100 pounds - putting smaller dogs at risk. You can then spend an hour letting them burn off energy, smelling all the new scents, and socializing with other similar-sized dogs.
Step
1
Find a park
The United States is more dog-friendly than ever before, with ownership sitting at around 90 million dogs. Therefore, it's going to be an effortless process to find a dog park near to you, with a separate area for small and big dogs. When you locate the right one, it might be helpful to find out when the park is quiet. Introducing them to a neutral space with fewer dogs is going to put less stress on them while they get used to the new area.
Step
2
Visit the park
Once you've found the perfect park for your pampered pooch, it's time to get going. Dog parks can be the ideal way for dogs of all shapes and sizes to burn off energy, meet with other dogs, and learn vital social skills. While the Rottie Bordeaux is a faithful, loyal, and family-orientated pet, they do require that socialization to bring it to the surface. Therefore, there's no time like the present to grab their favorite toy and get going.

More Fun Ideas...

Puzzles

While Rottie Bordeaux dogs are not the most intelligent breed, they are adept at puzzles and games - provided you choose easy ones. The best option for your pooch is a ball you can put food in. Your pup then has to work out how to get that delicious treat out. Such toys will entertain them for hours!

Fetch

Daily exercise is crucial for such a large dog, but not every pet owner has the time to head out to the park, beach, or for a long walk through the streets. If you're lacking time but you know your Rottie Bordeaux is bored, a game of fetch is going to be equally as appreciated as a trip to the beach. Spend half an hour playing ball and you're sure to find they're tired and ready for a well-deserved nap.

Conclusion

A Rottie Bordeaux is all too happy to lead a sedentary lifestyle with a little bit of destructive and bored behavior thrown into the mix. However, to avoid such problems and to ensure they don't get overweight, treat them to some pawesome activities both you and your pampered pooch are sure to love.
