Introduction

Alaskan Klee Kais are loved for their cute appearance and spunky personalities. These dogs are very energetic and need to have social interaction to stay happy dogs. Generally, they require about half an hour of exercise every day in addition to their playtime. Alaskan Klee Kais are also very intelligent and are known for being escape artists. Klee Kais are popular, because they look a lot like the Alaskan Husky, but they are smaller. Their double coats can come in a number of different colors, and they often have masks like a Husky.

Everyone loves a little game of hide and seek, and this game is super easy to play with your Klee Kai. Your dog's keen sense of smell will allow them to sniff out treats that you have left hidden around your home. You can either hide one treat at a time, or you can create a frenzy by hiding numerous treats in your home. This fun game doesn't require a lot of equipment, any travel, or much effort on your part. However, you will enjoy watching your Klee Kai running around your home trying to win a few treats while getting a little bit of exercise at the same time.

Step
1
Seclude your dog
To play hide and seek with your pooch, you need to put them in an area where they can't follow you as you hide their treat. You may need to shut your dog in a different room or put them in their kennel while you stash a treat somewhere in your home. Make it a favorite one for optimum motivation!
Step
2
Hide the treat
Hide and seek isn't fun if it is too easy or too hard. When you are hiding the treat, pick a place that is easy for your dog to get to. For example, don't hide a treat above your cabinets and expect your Klee Kai to be able to find it. Make sure the treat isn't left out in the open, however. As well, don't hide in a location where your pup typically is not allowed to go.
Step
3
Release your dog
Once the treat is hidden, it is time to let your dog out for their search. While they search for the treat, follow your dog around. This will allow you to know whether the treat has been found or not. Once the original treat has been found, it is time to repeat the whole process over. Continue playing until your pup seems tired or disinterested.

Activity description

Since these little pups have a lot of energy and are smart, you can try some new, exciting activities like agility training. These training classes challenge your dog both physically and mentally, which is why it is the perfect activity for an Alaskan Klee Kai. Some people don't realize that small dogs like the Klee Kai are well-suited to agility training. Unfortunately, finding an agility training facility can be challenging. Once you find a place, you can work with an instructor to teach your dog the different pieces of the course. Throughout training, you will see your dog learning all kinds of new skills on the course.

Step
1
Sign up for a class
Start researching local agility training classes in your area. Once you find one, take your pooch to the lessons to see if your dog enjoys the exercise and learns a few new tricks. If your dog seems happy during the training class, try signing them up for even more classes. These classes can be fun to do as a whole family.
Step
2
Work with a trainer
When it comes to teaching your dog agility, it is best to work with a trainer. A trainer can properly teach your Alaskan Klee Kai how to navigate through different obstacles in the course. If your pooch is easily distracted, or you want to speed up the training, you can also have private training sessions set up where you are working with a trainer one-on-one.
Step
3
Enter competitions
Part of the fun of agility training is competing against other dogs in your area. At first, you can sign up for a local competition, where you are likely to compete against other dogs in your class. If you are enjoying the experience, you can start competing in regional and national agility competitions.

Activity description

If you go online, you will see all kinds of fun dog puzzles that are made to challenge your dog and provide mental stimulation, which many dogs don't seem to get enough of. Alaskan Klee Kais are clever, so dog puzzles are a great way to test their skills and see if they are ready to learn something new. Dog puzzles involve placing treats inside various parts of the puzzles and watching your dog try to figure out just where the treats are hidden by manipulating the pieces of the puzzle board. These puzzles come in different difficulty levels, so you can start out with easier puzzles and gradually increase the difficulty as your dog continues to learn more and more about how to solve them.

Step
1
Get puzzles
The first step is to acquire the puzzles. They can often be found in pet stores or online. Choose a puzzle that you think will be appropriate for your Alaskan Klee Kai's current skill set. Often it is best to start with easy puzzles and build the difficulty slowly.
Step
2
Hide the treats
You may want to bring the puzzle away from your dog while you hide treats in it. Many of the pieces slide or lift in some way, so all you need to do is remove or open the pieces to place all of the treats inside the puzzle. Once you have all the treats hidden, it is time to let your pooch give it a try.
Step
3
Solve the puzzle
Now it is time to let your pup try to solve the puzzle. If you think that your dog is struggling too much to solve the puzzle, you can always try to teach them how to solve it. You can physically move the objects in the way that your dog needs to, and that should help them figure it out. Each time they play, they will get closer to mastering the skill.

Dog Park

The dog park is the perfect place to let your dog socialize and release some pent-up energy. Make sure that you encourage your dog to play with the other dogs at the park, but don't let things get out of hand.

Go Swimming

A quick dip in a pool or pond can be a fun activity for an Alaskan Klee Kai. Make sure that your dog can safely swim on their own; invest in a life jacket to help keep your dog afloat just to be on the safe side.

Conclusion

These feisty dogs can be a handful, but their pint-sized packages make them easier to handle than an Alaskan Husky. The Alaskan Klee Kai needs exercise and socialization, so choosing activities that allow your dog to release a little pent-up energy will make their life a lot more enjoyable. No matter what activities you choose to do with your pooch, they will just enjoy being able to spend more time with you. Choose an activity that lets you both get some quality time together.
