Akita Chows are just adorable. There, we said it. This interesting breed is a mix of Akita and Chow Chow, both known to be quite large but so fluffy. Akita Chows are large dogs that can grow up to 25 inches tall and they are loyal to the bone, calm and collected, and independent dogs who "don’t need no man". They are intelligent and loving, and they will protect their owners through thick and thin, so that makes them perfect companions. This also means that you’d have to think of fun activities you can do together to strengthen your bond and consolidate your love for each other.
Akita Chows are large energetic dogs, which means they require a lot of exercise to stay happy and healthy. This also means that it is time to get off that couch, close your laptop, and go outside and play with your pup. Playing fetch is fun and all, but sometimes you need to introduce a twist, so you don’t get bored. In comes the Fetch Race, and exciting game of fetch with a little twist to it. Instead of just throwing stuff and expecting your dog to bring it back, why not actively participate in the game? You will get some much-needed exercise, and your dog will be thrilled that you are running around the park with them!
Flirt poles are great. They offer loads of fun for a low price, and they can teach your dog how to chase the prey and develop their motor skills. Big doggos such as Akita Chows will, however, require a sturdy flirt pole, so either construct one yourself (which is fun in itself) or get a good quality one from the pet store. Then, all you have to do is start playing! This game is excellent for people with injured knees, as you can exercise your dog without putting too much strain on your legs, as a wise man said, the best of both worlds.
Don’t we all love to travel? But when you do, you leave your dog behind, and both of you are sad. So why not bring them along on a backpacking adventure? Plan ahead and see what you need to bring for both you and your pup. Try to pack light and start small, maybe go to a nearby city first before venturing off into the great big world. Your doggo will love exploring new places and will enjoy your company along the way. Traveling is one of the most rewarding experiences you can have, and sharing that with your dog will make you even happier. So, hit that open road with your Akita Chow and explore the vast world around you!
When it’s raining, and you are bored, play a game of tug war with your pup. This game will develop your dog’s brain and make the dreary rainy day more interesting!
Get a treat ball, stuff it with healthy snacks and let your doggo play with it. The treats will fall out slowly, offering a tasty bite during playtime!
As you can see, there are so many things you can do with your lovely Akita Chow. Whether your doggo is highly energetic or lazy, you can make every day into a fantastic day of fun with a little creativity and imagination. Your pup will be thrilled to play with you, so don’t be afraid to explore various activities for a big doggo such as this one. After all, big dogs can be bear hugged when they are good boys, so don’t be afraid to show some affection to your best friend.
