Activity description
This game might sound more like an activity to try with a toddler than a dog, but trust us, teaching your dog to be responsible and do their chores is just as valuable. Cleaning can get a little boring, so why not turn it into a game? Your dog will have a blast and learn a useful trick. The best part is that they will feel like they have a purpose, which is very important for such an intelligent breed. You also have less to clean up after playing with your dog, which is always a bonus in our eyes.
Step
1
Name the container
To make things easier for your dog, they need to know where to put their toys. To prevent confusion, use the same container every time and leave it in the same place. This will help in the training process. It might even help to name their toy box. Such a simple step will do a world of good. Your dog is smart, but they do need a little help.
Step
2
Pick up and drop
Before you can get to teaching your dog a chore, they need to know a few simple commands. This is part of the journey and if your dog doesn't know how to pick up and drop items, this could be a fun adventure for the two of you to em...bark on.
Step
3
Play and clean
Once your dog knows what to do, it is time to have a little fun. Let them put away toys one by one. You could play with them until they get tired of all their toys. You could even hide a few toys. There are so many possibilities, all you need to do is think outside the box so that your dog can put them back in the box.

Activity description
An intelligent breed needs to be trained. Training does a world of good for your dog. It gives them a sense of purpose and helps them channel their brains and energy into useful tasks instead of driving them to disobedience or destruction. Often, training seems like a bit of a chore. Keep in mind that all dogs are different and that there are so many new tricks that can be taught. If you're up to the challenge, look for a few new tricks to teach your dog. Once you know what you want to teach them, you can set a realistic date and organize a showcase to show off their new tricks.
Step
1
Choose the tricks
The internet is a big place full of fellow dog owners who love dogs just as much as you do. You can look for their blogs, videos and guides. These will contain details of creative new tricks and how to train your dog. Pick a handful, as much as your dog can handle and start training.
Step
2
Set the date
Do not set an unrealistic date for your showcase. Give yourself and your dog enough time to learn the new tricks. While you're training, plan the showcase. How big do you want it? Do you want to invite other dogs? These are questions to ask before the big showcase.
Step
3
Enjoy it
The big day has come, and although the two of you are a little nervous, you know that you can do it. Your friends and family have come together to enjoy a good show and you're going to give it to them. Don't forget to have a lot of fun and send us the pictures! We'd love to see the fruits of your labor.

Activity description
Life is so stressful. There is nothing better than to relax and spend time with your dog. Life can hardly get any better when you're relaxing with your dog and watching television after a long day. Well, we're about to make it a lot better, for both of you. Giving your dog a good massage will provide a number of health benefits that include increased circulation and better flexibility. It will also significantly strengthen your bond. If you think about it, our dogs deserve to be pampered every now and then. Giving them a good massage is the best way to do that. Trust us, they'll love it.
Step
1
A soft place
Before you give them a massage, you want to make sure that your dog is in a comfortable position. Make sure that they are not twisting into a strange position and that they are not uncomfortable in any way. Your dog needs to feel completely at ease for this to work properly.
Step
2
Gentle hands
Slow and soft strokes, starting from the base of their neck, moving down their backs are a perfect start. Scratch behind their ears and make sure that you gently move down, slowly massaging their muscles. Any abrupt movements might disturb them, so be very careful.
Step
3
A little research
If your dog is getting a little old, or has some problems with arthritis then it might be good for you to pay for a professional to massage your dog. You could also learn how to give a more advanced massage if you want to do things properly. Thankfully, there is a lot of information that is available at your fingertips.
