Most canine breeds love the water and will take any opportunity to play and swim, whether it’s in your plan or not! So, it makes perfect sense to capture that tendency to create a fun activity that you and your pet can enjoy as often as time and weather permit. There are many “beachy bonding” experiences in your future when you frolic on the beach with your precious pooch. This trip is pretty cheap, and nothing can be more natural than gathering up your beach stuff and your pooch to head for the closest dog-friendly water park, lake, river, creek or ocean. We would remind you to bring the sunscreen, lots of drinking water and snacks and the expectation of lots of fun!
Daily walks with your precious pooch serve two purposes: first, the walk provides you both the opportunity to get some beneficial exercise, breathe in fresh air and soak up the sunshine (if there is any); and second, it provides you with daily chances to build and deepen your relationship with your furry friend. While the Saint Pyrenees is not considered an active or energetic canine, that doesn’t mean those exercise periods are not necessary. A couple of daily walks of about 30-minute duration works wonders for everyone’s physical, mental and emotional health. The stroll is free of charge and can’t be more natural a choice for people and dogs of any age or physical condition. Walking your dog can be done in any weather, requiring extra protection for rainy, snowy, cold or extreme sunny conditions.
Your Saint Pyrenees loves to be anywhere you are, and that includes in riding in the car or truck. They will proudly accompany you to the local home improvement store, the hardware store or even just two blocks away to visit a friend. Be sure to include the leash when you go.
This event involves hiding your pet's favorite treats (or toys) when they aren't watching, and then bringing them in to search for them. They will love to play this game often.
This game incorporates a string or rope tethered to one end of a long pole, stick, rod or PVC pipe. To play, attach a toy to one end of the string and the pole to the other. Then drag, swing, or twirl the toy, allowing your dog to chase and catch it.
One of the oldest dog games known to man, this game is one that your canine will never tire of and one on which you will likely have to set your limits, for your sake. Play this game anywhere, with any toy and for as long as you like.
Any activity done with your Saint Pyrenees will be appreciated by them. These dogs are capable of such love and loyalty that they don’t do well when they are separated from their beloved family. They are a large canine and sometimes don’t realize that they aren’t considered "lap" dogs, but their hearts are indeed in the right place, especially when it comes to protecting their human families. These games and activities provided here today will allow for some fun and beneficial exercise for all involved as well as many chances to form deeper and stronger bonds with you.
