Activity description
During hot summer days, it is tempting to lie under a fan or air conditioner and forget all your troubles. However, it is not a productive way to spend time with your dog. The problem is the heat. Thankfully, that is something that can be fixed very easily. All you need is a water hose and a backyard. Of course, this activity will not work if you live in a small apartment. You can spend a few minutes playing with the water and tire yourselves out. Once you're both refreshed, you can move on to other activities. Such as lounging underneath a fan or air conditioner.
Step
1
Set limits
It can be tempting to get lost in all the fun you're having, but you do need to set some limits. Time restrictions will keep you from using too much water, which can be a problem in some areas. The game is a lot of fun, but you would not want to be wasteful. The purpose of the game is just to have some fun and spend some energy while you cool down.
Step
2
Spray!
Start the game off by getting your Afghan Spaniel excited. Spray them with a little water. It will come as a surprise, but it should be a pleasant one. Once they jump, stop the flow of water. Now they will want to play in the water but is up to you to decide when to spray the water.

Aiming fun
Don't just spray the water, have some fun too. Aim the hose away from them, and if they run toward it, aim it somewhere else. Surprise them by spraying them with water when they least expect it. It is a lot more fun than hiding indoors. Just be careful of the sun.!

Dog Toy
Activity description
Afghan Spaniels are inherently family oriented dogs. The best way to spend some quality time with them is by making them feel part of the family. This activity aims to include every member of the family. By the end of the game, you should all feel much closer to each other. Choose your dog's favorite toy and move to a wide open area. If you have a backyard, you can go play there. If not, then the local park will work well. With the proper planning, you could make a whole day out of it. Wouldn't it be nice to spend a day with your dog, family, and friends?
Step
1
Determine the race area
This race is a little different from the races you might be used to. For one thing, your dog will always be the winner. Or at least, they should be. The race track does not need to be too long, if you're strapped for space then you could all stand in a circle.
Step
2
The handover
One person starts the race by running off with the dog's toy. The dog will chase them, trying to get the toy back. After a short distance, the first person hands the toy to the second person and the second person takes off running. The first person waits where the second person waited until the last person hands the toy over.
Step
3
The rules
In a normal relay race, there are several teams. In doggy relay, there is only one team. The humans must make the dog feel like a winner. It would be frustrating if your Afghan Spaniel just ran in circles chasing a toy they'll never get. A few rules should prevent this problem. If your dog overtakes you, they get the toy. If your dog touches the toy, they get the toy.

Activity description
Gardens make us happy. There is something special about spending time in a garden. If you're looking for a hobby, you can't go wrong with this one. It also a great way to spend some quality time with your Afghan Spaniel and put their intelligence to good use. We have a few useful ideas, but while you're getting your hands dirty, you will think of a few good ones too. Don't be afraid to put your dog to work. It is better to spend their energy on useful tasks than for them to get bored. A bored dog is a destructive dog.
Step
1
Get ready
The first and most important step is to get ready. You are going to spending a lot of time in the dirt and in the sun. Wear a hat for protection and do not forget to bring water for both of you. Gardening is a fun experience, but only when you're prepared. Decide what you want to do beforehand, and make sure that you have the proper equipment.
Step
2
Dig the hole
You're going to be planting a few things, so why not let your dog dig the hole for you? It might be a little messy, but they'll have fun doing so. You can use the time to train them to dig properly. If digging small holes is a problem for them, then you can give them their own patch of sand to dig up.
Step
3
Fetch the tools
Fetch is one of the first games a dog learns to play, but you're going to change the rules a bit. Get your Afghan Spaniel to bring your tools like the watering can or non-pointy pieces of equipment. Turning a hobby into a game for the both of you will make it a lot of fun.

More Fun Ideas...

Launch The Ball

The next time you're at the pet store, look out for something to launch a ball. These toys come in all shapes and sizes, but their basic purpose is to launch your dog's favorite ball a few meters into the air. Your dog will then chase the ball. It is a basic principle, but one of the most fun ways to spend time with your dog.

Pop the Bubbles

As children, we were endlessly fascinated by blowing bubbles, some of us still are. The great news is that your dog will be fascinated too. Buy some bubbles and blow them, for old times sake. The only difference is that your dog is going to see a shimmery ball that is begging to be caught. It should be fun for the both of you!

Conclusion

Is your dog bored? Well, it's no wonder. You do have a dog that is known for being intelligent and friendly. They need stimulation: mental and physical ways to keep them busy. It is your job to keep them busy, but you can have a lot of fun taking care of them. All dogs are different, so some of these suggestions might not work for all dogs. On the other hand, once you start thinking about it, you will surprise yourself with all your good ideas to keep them busy. And remember, you don't need to be elaborate, just spending time with them will mean the world to your dog.
